4.5 Back to Business miamifan | 04/12/2011 | See all miamifan's reviews (55) The 4th season is by no means bad but a noticeable dip in quality did occur (by The Sopranos standards anyway). The 5th season in my opinion rectify's that and is another fantastic season. It's not as good as the first 3 seasons but this is top class TV. The stories generally have a higher pace than in the 4th season and character development is excellent in this season. The tension in the season is quite high too with a brilliant build up towards the final 3 episodes which are all epic. The introduction of Steve Buscemi as Tony's cousin is a great addition to the series. Season highlights include Irregular Around the Margins, The Test Dream, Long Term Parking and All Due Respect. The style is on top form, the music fantastic, the stories great and the action great too. Overall, fantastic TV yet again from The Sopranos and better overall than the 4th season.
