Quotes

Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: [Questioning Christopher about his near-death experience, where Christopher thought he went to hell] Was it hot?
Christopher Moltisanti: Yeah... I don't know. What the fuck?
Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: The heat would've been the first thing you noticed. Hell is hot! That's never been disputed by anybody. You didn't go to hell; you went to purgatory, my friend!

The Sopranos

A classic take on the most beloved genre which clearly suggests the crazy love it received from the audience but also left a long lasting impression on critics and awards shows where it took away five justified Golden Globes to its home. The Sopranos is a character driven series about a family that basically runs the whole town, just illegally.

The writing is adaptive, gripping and ground-breaking on terms of its structure that is so eerily easy as it slips away from the audience like some jelly; it is sweet, nutritious and immensely pleasing. It is rich on technical aspects like its metaphorical cinematography, sharp sound effects and up beating songs along with palpable background score. The series is shot beautifully, each and every color sparks up neatly; especially the visuals that are taken in sunny days are amazing.

The performance by the cast is plausible since the effort is clearly visible but Gandolfini, Bracco, Falco and Imperioli stands alone due to their easiness in their acts. Gandolfini; at the heart of it, oozes power and the aegis nature which is what helps makers keep the audience rooting for the character.

The relationship between Gandolfini and Bracco is the highlight of the series due its fragile tone which is soothing to experience as it lights up the series in a whole new way. Pragmatic conversations, three dimensional character, gut-wrenching politics, brawny dialogues and brilliant execution are the high points of the feature that makes it one of the best series.

Season 02

Unlike the first one, the second act is weaved to run for a longer time, it adds up few characters and shakes the old ones and milks out the apt and diverse than the previous one which shows us, the boldness and maturity of the makers to visit such newer territories.

From Where To Eternity

If Gandolfini oozes power to suppress others and capture this behemoth of character that he has, his equally challenging screen opponent is Falco who not only has the potential to absorb his demands but can stare in his eyes without even blinking.
