Product Description

Product Description

The complete fifth season of the popular drama series. In 'Two Tonys', Tony, now separated from Carmela, takes a romantic interest in Dr. Melfi. Carmela is forced to call Tony for help when a wild bear keeps visiting their home. Johnny Sack sees an opportunity for advancement when Carmine suffers a stroke, while new parolees readjust to life on the outside and Janice adjusts to married life with Bobby. In 'Rat Pack', Tony throws a welcome-home party for his cousin, Tony Blundetto, who is released from prison on parole. The FBI continues to pressure Adriana for information and she nearly confesses at Carmela's film club. Carmine's passing leaves the field wide open for Johnny Sack, but Little Carmine has ideas of his own. In 'Where's Johnny?', Feech begins to overstep when he moves in on Paulie's landscaping deals. Tony worries about Junior's mind when Junior wanders around his old neighborhood searching for long-dead friends. As the hostility in New York intensifies, Johnny Sack dispatches the Leotardo brothers to send Little Carmine a clear message. In 'All Happy Families', Tony and Carmela quarrel after A.J. spends a wild night in the Big Apple. Tony is forced to make a decision about Feech when he continues to overstep his bounds.

Facing an indeterminate sentence of weeks/months/years until new episodes, Sopranos fans are advised to take the fifth; season, that is. At this point, superlatives don't do The Sopranos justice, but justice was at last served to this benchmark series. For the first time, The Sopranos rubbed out The West Wing to take home its first Emmy for Outstanding Dramatic Series. Michael Imperioli and Drea de Matteo also earned Best Supporting Actor and Actress honors for some of their finest hours as Christopher and Adriana. From the moment a wayward bear lumbers into the Sopranos' yard in the season opener, it is clear that The Sopranos is in anything but a "stagmire." The series benefits from an infusion of new blood, the so-called "Class of 2004," imprisoned "family" members freshly released from jail. Most notable among these is Tony's cousin, Tony Blundetto (Steve Buscemi, who directed the pivotal season 3 episode "Pine Barrens"), who initially wants to go straight, but proves himself to be something of a "free agent," setting up a climactic stand-off between Tony and New York boss Johnny Sack.

These 13 mostly riveting episodes unfold with a page-turning intensity with many rich subplots. Estranged couple Tony and Carmela (the incomparable James Gandolfini and Edie Falco) work toward a reconciliation (greased by Tony's purchase of a $600,000 piece of property for Carmela to develop). The Feds lean harder on an increasingly stressed-out and distraught Adriana to "snitch" with inevitable results. This season's hot-button episode is "The Test Dream," in which Tony is visited by some of the series' dear, and not-so-dearly, departed in a harrowing nightmare. With this set, fans can enjoy marathon viewings of an especially satisfying season, but considering the long wait ahead for season 6, best to take Tony's advice to his son, who, at one point, gulps down a champagne toast. "Slow down," Tony says. "You're supposed to savor it." --Donald Liebenson, Amazon.com

While series 5 of the Spotranos suffers slightly by comparison with some of its illustrious predecessors, the series builds to a great climax in the last 3 episodes. I agree with one or two of the criticisms by other reviewers, and the first three or four episodes are slower and apparently less consequential than many earlier episiodes, but the final four episodes of the series (especially the penultimate installment) make compelling viewing.

The problem that series 4 and 5 of the Sopranos have had is how to keep things fresh- after all, this is a series that has churned out 60-odd episodes of about 45 minutes each, all with Hollywood-standard production values. The biggest flaw is a felling of 'here we go again' when older characters (Vito, Little Paulie and Bobby for example) are promoted or given more prominence and new characters (Phil Leotardo, Tony Blundetto) are introduced. For the first half of the series, Tony Blundetto appears to be filling the shoes left by Ralph and Richie Aprile before that, but Steve Buscemi's excellent, understated acting gives the character added depth and significance.

The last part of the series effectively drums home the message that the Sopranos has been reiterating for years - no matter how cosy and cuddly these characters may appear, they are ruthless murderers and no matter how much they talk about family and honour, they are as motivated by greed and self interest as any petty thieves, points perhaps obscured in even the greatest Mafia movies.

My big hope is that the fact that the show now has a very limited shelf-life (20-odd more episodes) might give season 6 and the following specials a natural dramatic impetus.

Biggest disappointment in season 5 - not enough Junior!

We finished watching series 5 last night. The image of Tony in the snow running across the fields to escape the Feds is one that will stay with me. The mystery is why do I care about this man? He is a menace to society, to women, even to his kith and kin. My loyalty to him and my deep interest in him must be because he is so well-written and acted. He is a Shakesperian character, multi-layered, complex. I hate violence normally, but if you go to a Shakespeare play, it is to enjoy the characters not to see the bodies pile up (and old Shakespeare likes to pile them up!)

The whole of series 5 is top class, but the final two episodes of the series were especially enjoyable.

I have to say that series 5 is excellent. Everything that the makes the show so good is all there, and the inclusion of Steve Buscemi throughout the series makes it all the more watchable. There are several smaller plots throughout the series, most of which are tied up by the end and some which you feel could re-appear in the next series. I won't go into detail about the plots, as it will dilute the experience. If you're a fan series five cannot fail to impress it is brilliant viewing from start to finish- roll on series six.

Sopanos- the greatest tv show ever- fact! With the arrival of Steve Buscemi (who also directed an episode) The Sopranos maintained it's unique rhythm right until the shows finale. The cast as ever are wonderful and with Paulie getting more air time than he did in season 4 it just can't be faulted. If you liked Goodfellas, The Godfather etc. then this show is an absolute must for you. With the show now due to finish and Six Feet Under already gone, just what the hell will there be left to watch on tv? Lost??? Forget about it! This is the king and will never be beaten- Oh there is also the shock exit of one of the shows regular and most beloved characters- but I won't say whom in case you haven't seen it yet. Let's just say BIG SURPRISE! Each episode here is like a mini-movie and there are still many plotlines waiting to unravel come season 6. Will Furio return? Will they kill Tony off in the end? There is still more crosses and double crosses headed our way- though it probably won't show on tv over here until Big Brother has finished - GRRRR!!!

Each season of the Sopranos stands on it's own as truly fantastic drama - it will make you laugh, cry, jump out of your seat with shock, infuriate, even educate us Brits on all sorts of little things in family life in New jersey, like how to dispose of a body, or cook spaghetti properly, or get into Georgetown, or how not to bleed a guy too much..

Get season 5 if you have seen the previous four. Otherwise, start at the beginning, or you will miss out on the delicate character relationships that have been developed over several years.

I look on Tony as a management genius, they way he handles his captains, evades the feds, looks after his family, but then again, he does have his dark side (don't we all).

The quality of the Sopranos is proven by the fact that you can re-watch them, knowing the outcome, but still able to enjoy the dialogue, and plot twists.

Thank you to the cast, writers and crew - we are not worthy.

Mob life is so stressful. What with the punishments meted out in back alleys and rivals muscling in on the action, the casual drug taking, no wonder thee poor guys need the sympathetic ear of the shrink. Of course this all has to stay under wraps or risk the view that you have gone soft and sissy. Very believable caracters and script.
