All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

Overall, there were a focus and a consistency to this season that we haven't seen since the first year.

It was as rich an hour as fans could expect.

August 11, 2014 | Full Review…

Like any good soap opera, the series thrives on the pulsating polyrhythms of its multiple storylines.

August 15, 2014 | Full Review…

There's Sopranos black comedy at its best.

July 11, 2014 | Full Review…

A not-unintentional legacy of The Sopranos' refusal to signpost is a sense of dread that never once lifts.

October 18, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Worthy of most accolades showered upon it (which is saying something), the long layoff between seasons hasn't dimmed the show's status as one of TV's gems - a family drama like no other, imitated but unlikely to be equaled.

New characters were introduced and there were many interesting story-lines and character development. Not to mention the shocking deaths.
