News & Interviews for The Sopranos: Season 5
Overall, there were a focus and a consistency to this season that we haven't seen since the first year.
... there isn't is a compelling reason to spend any more time among wiseguys with a chemical dependency on olive oil, roadkill, and Frank Sinatra.
A not-unintentional legacy of The Sopranos' refusal to signpost is a sense of dread that never once lifts.
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.
For viewers, the good news is that this new story allows for an unusually strong influx of new Sopranos characters.
What makes The Sopranos an oasis in today's climate of declining entertainment standards from reality TV to theatrical features is that Chase's drama has never been tempted by complacency.
Season five of The Sopranos just might be my favorite. It combines the terrific character explorations of seasons two and four with the more thoroughly plotted arcs of seasons one and three.
No, The Sopranos isn't the constant shock-of-the-new it once was; even its moments of abrupt, crazy violence are easily spotted. But there are still many scenes that are touching and devastatingly sincere.
A look at a mistifing figure of a gangster in the contemporary times. A necessary look to ourselves. [full review in Spanish]
Like any good soap opera, the series thrives on the pulsating polyrhythms of its multiple storylines.
Audience Reviews for The Sopranos: Season 5
Sep 09, 2015New characters were introduced and there were many interesting story-lines and character development. Not to mention the shocking deaths.Sylvester K Super Reviewer
May 09, 2015Season 5 is probably the best of the bunch. It's just overwhelmingly great at every turn. Our characters are constantly under pressure and finally move out of their comfort zone with unexpected results. Featuring some of the best episodes and scenes of the show, The Sopranos could've easily ended here and it would still be great. Buscemi is a worthy addition to the show, that kinda feels like a resume of everything that came before, culminating into directions that the characters will never truly recover from. Top-notch dialogue at every turn, though a bit darker than previous outings without some of the great dark humor, this is as solid as it gets.Francisco G Super Reviewer

Sep 04, 2020Another good season with some amazing episodes and scenes.
Feb 03, 2020The Tony B and Adriana plots makes this the best season.
Jan 28, 2020The Sopranos is the best show on televison of all time.
Sep 05, 2018As well as being my favorite, I consider this season to be the best of the series. Many great actors were added, including Steve Buscemi, Frank Vincent, Robbert Loggia, and Frankie Valli. On top of that, the overall story in season 5 is the most connected in the show, the episodes don't feel as stand alone as hey have in the past. Great season to a great show.
Nov 23, 2014This masterpiece of a television series continues with its complexity and unpredictability as the series is close to coming to an end and therefore the pace of the show picks up in unbelievable, but amazing ways.
Oct 20, 2014This is a return to season 1 and 2 glory. A seriously amazing and wholly satisfying season of TV. A classic.
