The Sopranos season 1

The Sopranos follows the fortunes of high-ranking New Jersey mobster Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini). Tony visits a 'Shrink' Doctor Melfi (Lorraine Bracco) because he suffers from panic attacks. With the help of the sessions with Doctor Melfi, we get a better understanding of Tony Soprano's criminal brain, but also of his family and his 'Family'. In particular the hypocrisy and double standards they use with regard to mafia life and ordinary crime. At the same time, you also notice that the 'world' in which Tony lives is made up of trickery and deceit and gossip and backbiting, so that everyone has to be constantly on the lookout not to get whacked, even Tony himself. His status as a boss in New Jersey may seem like a lot to us outsiders, but in his own circle it is not that bad because New Jersey is about as glamorous as Diemen-Zuid. It's not for nothing that his colleagues from New York mockingly say that his 'Family' is nothing more than a fallen crew. Whoever follows the series from start to finish sees more and more the depraved side of Tony Soprano emerge, as if you are watching an accident, but you nevertheless also remain sympathetic to him. The series has a top cast with Gandolfini and Bracco names such as Steve van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen's bandmate), Tony Sirico (Goodfellas), Michael Imperioli (Goodfellas) and Domenic Chianese (Johnny Ola from Godfather II) in regular supporting roles and guest roles by well-known names. (Mafia) actors such as Frank Vincent (the Gray Roof pigeon known from Goodfellas and Casino), David Proval, (Mean Streets) Steve Buscemi (Mr Pink) and Joe Pantoliano (The Goonies and Memento). The Sopranos is the best series about the mafia and also the biggest anti-advertising for that lifestyle.

The Sopranos season 1

I'm one of those people who don't really like the ending, but apart from that, what a storyline, what a characters, what a main character, James Gandolfini (RIP) gives one of the strongest acting performances I've ever seen. Very strong.
