The Sopranos is without a doubt one of my absolute favourite shows of all time and this final series is a fine send off.
The only reason I'm knocking off a star for this final season is because I feel it doesn't tie up all the loose ends and there are still several plot strands left undone. The final episodes also have a kind of rushed feel to them as if they were anxious to resolve the situations regarding certain characters. One of the episodes (ep 6 in otherwords) is also a bit of a letdown, I won't give away why. But the series finale "Made in America" is excellent and an absolutely fitting end to the show.
But other than that, its a really good series send off, the performances are again all superb, James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano is just brilliant, its his show and he often gives the best all round performance. The supporting cast are all great, most of the characters are teriffic, especially Paulie and Junior, there are a few annoying ones here and there, especially Janice Soprano, Tony's crazed sister, and AJ, Tony's infuriating spoilt brat of a son (even Tony wants to kick his ass!).
But overall The Sopranos stands as one of the most engrossing, entertaining, intelligent (not to mention funny) crime-drama series ever made in the US. And this box set is well worth the purchase to see how it ends.
