The Sopranos: Season 4 (2002)



Critic Consensus: The war seeps into the Sopranos household in a season of discontent, with each of these artfully rendered devils stewing in a divine comedy of their own making.

Critic Reviews for The Sopranos Season 4

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

After a finale like this, it's going to be an achingly long wait until season five.

Aug 15, 2014 | Full Review…

This season, there was just too much standin' around.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Gandolfini's strangely childlike side keeps this series fluid. He makes Tony Soprano hard to figure and easy to forgive.

Jun 20, 2018 | Full Review…

[The] lack of visual drama heightens the tension between the quotidian and the aberrant in the series.

Aug 15, 2014 | Full Review…

The Sopranos remains a unique combination of brains, wit and raw power.

Jul 11, 2014 | Full Review…

Everybody is right back where they started - except that they know more, and they've been places they can't return from and said things they can't take back.

Jun 20, 2018 | Full Review…

... a welcome dose of absurdist humor just when we need it...

Jan 31, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the things I like about this season of The Sopranos is the way that it very, very slowly turns up the heat on virtually every major character.

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

The Sopranos' -- bursting with livid energy and daringly rotten at its core -- is full of scenes that'll leave you breathless in their audacity, goofball non sequiturs, and profound cynicism.

Jul 11, 2014 | Full Review…

It's still OK to expect brilliance. Rest assured that Chase and his writing team didn't use those 16 months to sit on their hands.

Audience Reviews for The Sopranos: Season 4



Super Reviewer


While still fun, season 4 has reached Sopranos peak.


Super Reviewer


The plot thickens and our characters grown in unexpected directions. The tension rises up considerably amongst the NY family and the Sopranos making for some great explosive moments between the characters and hilarious dark comedy. It never gets out of hand though, this is a series still very grounded in reality and it's refreshing to see that these guys prefer to solve thing amicably and not by shooting everything in sight. Also, applause for the brilliant last episode. Edie Falco was stunning in it and the chemistry between her and Gandolfini was glorious to behold.
