The Sopranos - Season 3, Episode 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Mr. Ruggerio's Neighborhood


Episode Info

The third season of the popular HBO crime series opens with the FBI trying to devise a method of bugging the home of New Jersey mob boss Anthony Soprano (James Gandolfini). In the meantime, Tony's daughter Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) adjusts to life as a freshman at Columbia University, his wife Carmela (Edie Falco) takes tennis lessons, and his son Anthony Jr. (Robert Iler) is more concerned about his skateboard and cigarettes than schoolwork. Tony is also worried about Patsy Parisi (Dan Grimaldi), twin brother of the slain Philly, who was murdered on Tony's orders. His erratic behavior and heavy drinking seem an indication that Patsy knows who's responsible for his brother's death, causing Tony and his lieutenants to keep a close watch on the embittered soldier. "Mr. Ruggerio's Neighborhood" was written by series creator David Chase.
