What’s Season 4 about?
Things aren’t getting any easier for “Tone” in year 4 of this extremely popular HBO series. On the home front, money’s tight, his daughter Meadow is getting more and more rebellious and uncle Junior is about to stand trial. If that weren’t enough, his wife Carmela is finding herself more and more attracted to Furio, one of Tony’s soldiers. Christopher (the great Michael Imperioli) is getting more responsibility in the “family” and climbing the ranks but his increasing drug problem is really mucking things up. There are a lot of changes in season 4 with a lot of lives, marriages and balls on the line. Is there a war on the horizon between mob families? Will a life or two be in peril? Will Drea de Matteo look freakin’ hot again? It’s the Sopranos...what do you think, you mook?!
The acting in THE SOPRANOS has always been brilliant as well. They’ve assembled a great cast and it’s always been a proud mark of the show (just watch the Emmys every single year, Christ, you’d think it was the only show in contention). Although its two actors in particular that really put some sizzle and excitement into this season: Michael Imperioli (Christopher) and Joe Pantoliano (Ralph). They’re both loose cannons, incredibly charismatic and used often enough to keep me salivating and interested every episode. It’s already been four years that this show is on the air and I’d just like to say that I’m still not sick of “Woke Up This Morning” the theme song from THE SOPRANOS by A3. How much do I love it? It’ll be playing at my wedding as my wife walks down the aisle. I-shit-you-not.
To sum up, THE SOPRANOS: SEASON 4 is as fresh and lively as it was in 1999, when the series first aired. The way the story moves forward, every show just makes you want to start the other immediately (as I did), until you’ve lost your job, loved ones and complete touch with reality (I contemplated more than once a life of crime while enjoying this show). It’s crazy, it’s bloody and it feels oddly real. Damn straight...it’s a good TV show!
Season Recaps & Episodic previews & recaps: I was dreading not having this feature included when I got the set. Not so much the episodic recaps, but it had been a year since I’d watched season 3, so it was capital that I get a nice refresher course to the past seasons. There is a very comprehensive recap of seasons one through three. I suggest watching them all in a row (no more than a few minutes each) before starting this set.
