The sopranos is, in my opinion the greatest television series ever created. The show features great acting, a brilliant story, fantastic directing and it was good value for money.
Just a brief overview: The story centers around Tony Soprano, (played brilliantly by James Gandolfini) who juggles two families, his wife, kids and mother and then his mob family, his friends, nephew and uncle. Tony feels the pressure of keeping both sides happy and succumbs to it by collapsing and then eventually checking into therapy.
I will not give away the story but I can assure you the story is a long, detailed and immensely well-written one that never dips in quality. There are enough cappings, deaths and illnesses and divorces to keep you going through to the final episode. Believe the hype about this show!
The box set that the DVDs are presented in is, (like most box sets) prone to damage, just your usual dents and smudges, nothing major because the DVDs are stowed away nicely inside. However, it does take a bit of the shine of a lovely product.
In conclusion, this show deserves the reputation it has gained. Everything about it is great, do not hesitate to buy this set. Just be careful when moving it around.
