Ash’s review published on Letterboxd:
(logging this as season 1 of the show)
So I finally decided to watch this, and so far it’s a masterpiece of a show. The characters are so complex and authentic, Tony especially. James Gandolfini perfectly embodies the character of Tony Soprano in such a unique way. The whole first season is really well written. Honestly, I can’t think of a single flaw, i’d go as far to say this is just as good as Breaking Bad.
I know the term Masterpiece gets thrown around a lot, but season one of the Sopranos is quite literally the definition of a masterpiece. If you’re thinking about starting this show, or haven’t seen it yet, i’d 100% recommend it.
