The Sopranos: Season 2 (2000)



Critic Consensus: The Sopranos' strong cast and solid writing add depth to the show's occasionally unlikable characters and their repellent deeds, making for thought-provoking, consistently compelling viewing.

Critic Reviews for The Sopranos Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (12)

Most of all, The Sopranos remains a showcase for ferociously distinctive writing, inventive direction and brilliant portrayals of surprisingly, even disturbingly, sympathetic multilayered characters.

Jan 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The Sopranos is a show for viewers who want an alternative to TV dramas that too often ask us to accept oversimplification and feel-good-ism.

Jul 8, 2014 | Full Review…

The Sopranos remains a showcase for ferociously distinctive writing, inventive direction and brilliant portrayals of surprisingly, even disturbingly, sympathetic multilayered characters by a perfectly cast group of actors who hold back nothing.

Jul 8, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It isn't clear why the series generates such effusive praise. The greatest TV show? No way. Tony's too despicable.

Jul 8, 2014 | Full Review…

The second season of The Sopranos begins on a less frothy, slightly more bitter note than the first, but the terrific midlife-crisis mob show continues to generate a buzz.

Jul 8, 2014 | Full Review…

Plenty of sex, violence, domestic melodrama and comic irony; a portrait of a suburban landscape that does for northern New Jersey what film noir did for Los Angeles.

Bottom Line: Still TV's top "family" drama

Jul 8, 2014 | Full Review…

As The Sopranos heads into season No. 2, writing remains crisp, photography is sharp and interesting, new characters lend intriguing plot twists and James Gandolfini continues to expertly play the most compelling character on series television.

I was pleased to see that the first two episodes were better than I had remembered.

Jul 15, 2014 | Rating: A | Full Review…

It keeps pulling you back in - back in on yourself, appealing to your basest instincts, to your fundamental urge to hear a bloody story well told.

Audience Reviews for The Sopranos: Season 2



Super Reviewer


Though not as solid as the first season, thanks to some aimless plot lines and some repetition, season 2 is still incredible on its writing and for leaving us constantly confused on who we're supposed to root for. We're never sure if we should applaud any of these guys for what they do, but their humanity keeps us engaged right until the end.

Season 2 continued the good streak season 1 has set up and continued to be more thought provoking.
