5 On a par with the 1st seasonmiamifan | 04/12/2011 | See all miamifan's reviews (55)Just when you think The Sopranos can't get any better after the 1st and 2nd seasons, the 3rd comes along with yet more fantastic stories to tell and yet more fantastic character developments. I would place this on a par with the 1st season, it's as enjoyable and has many memorable episodes. All the episodes are fantastic but Mr. Ruggerio's Neighborhood, Another Toothpick, University, Pine Barrens, Amour Fou and Army of One all stand out as some of the series best episodes. The music also starts to take more of a up front role in telling the stories with many memorable tracks in this season. Overall, this season is brilliant.
