Critic Reviews for The Sopranos Season 6, Part I

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (25)

In its brilliant interlocking of complex plot and riveting characters, it is the equivalent of an epic novel or stage classic.

Aug 11, 2014 | Full Review…

Twenty-one months after Tony tramped home through the snow like a black bear, the show is back in magnificent form, with all its humor, psychological thorniness, and bleak tragedy intact.

Jul 15, 2014 | Full Review…

Fasten your seatbelts, because the emotional roller coaster in Soprano land has a wicked new curve.

Jul 15, 2014 | Full Review…

The main question about The Sopranos, which starts its sixth season on HBO Sunday: How good is it? The thrilling answer: better than ever.

Jul 11, 2014 | Full Review…

There's enough classic Sopranos action - some of it involving extreme physical violence - to remind the average person that where the Sopranos are is not where most of us want to go.

Jul 11, 2014 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A look at a mistifing figure of a gangster in the contemporary times. A necessary look to ourselves. [full review in Spanish]

Nov 26, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

This comeback season has to be judged a letdown.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

As unfathomable as their world was, the characters of this tragic, beautifully arcing modern epic were so real that they became like family to us, too.

Jun 4, 2018 | Full Review…

In any event, the point of all of this is that the show's highly trumpeted return to the pop-cultural zeitgeist was solid.

May 24, 2018 | Full Review…

After a promising start - Tony does the perp walk in handcuffs - the Sunday episode fades into the tedium of dinnertime conversation about home movies of Tony and Janice when they were kids.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Signature exaggerations remain both hilarious and unsettling.

Audience Reviews for The Sopranos: Season 6, Part I

  • May 24, 2015
    The end is near, right from the start (and startling) first episode with the characters we've grown to love and hate to thread on their darkest paths until the inveitable clash. This is the darkest season yet and whilst most storylines are concluded, I felt some characters deserved something more. Some stories definitely didn't end properly (come on, do you really want to see the last of Silvio in a hospital bed without saying anything?) and some episodes didn't add much we didn't knew before. Also, it takes some major balls to end the show that way. Really well done, even if I felt that the ending wasn't ambiguous as it was supposed to. Some hints on previous episodes left it pretty clear as to what happened on the infamous cut to black and silence. All in all, it's because of all these risks and commitment to do things differently on television that The Sopranos is regarded as one of the best of all time and rightfully so. Major disappointment: the ducks didn't return!!!

    The first half of the Sopranos final season has the tension building so that you know something big is going to happen.

    Your greed is gonna get you killed.
  • Jan 15, 2019
    The best TV show ever. I do not think we will ever see anything like it again.
  • Aug 03, 2014
    With its mysterious and open-ended yet meaningful final scene, the last season of The Sopranos builds up the emotions and characterization to its expected high point and an unexpected conclusion, cementing itself into television history as the most influential series of modern times.
  • Aug 01, 2014
    A true journey from start to finish, focusing on the ups and downs of what a Disney prince turned monster would embody.
  • Jul 09, 2014
    Every scene and dialog are perfectly and exquisitely written. One of the best in that department
  • May 11, 2014
    Second only to "The Wire".
  • Jan 06, 2014
    A very realistic mafia depiction of what really goes on. Like Goodfellas, it is violent, bloody, excellent acting and dialogue, along with an excellent cast. In loving memory of James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano, Sr.).
  • Jan 05, 2014
    My #4 show of all time."The Blue Comet", episode is my favorite episode of the whole entire show.
