The Sopranos is without a doubt the single greatest American TV drama and the Second Series stands up there as one of the very best. Everyone is on top form in this season, the episodes are totally gripping and engrossing, the performances from the main cast, especially James Gandolfini, Edie Falco and Dominic Chianese are nothing short of superb, it also introduces Aida Turturro playing her memorable and crazed character Janice Soprano.
The storylines are also brilliantly multi-layered, complex and utterly involving especially the feud between loose canon mob capo Richie April and Tony Soprano. The music on the show again is first class as the makers of the show always use the music so well it also probably has the best use of a Rolling Stones song (Thru and Thru) ever at the end of the series.
The second season of The Sopranoas is up there with some of the very best TV that has come out of America in the last 10 years and is an absolute must on DVD.
