The Perfect Season!

Season 1 of the Sopranos was one of the best series ever made. Each episode was well directed and the characters were compelling and believable (the other 4 seasons are by no means close in comparison). A mob family in turmoil after its boss is suffering cancer. Tony and Corado Soprano compete for succession as boss. Tony, decides it is better to let Corado be boss and have the Feds chase him while Tony himself runs his own little group with no government pressure.

Tony cannot deal with his daily stress and starts seeing a psychiatrist, brilliantly played by Lorraine Bracco. The exchanges between the two become the highlight of the first season. Basically, Tony is more happy with animals than people and this is because of a controlling mother that never loved him. In fact during the season his mother plots with Corado to have Tony bumped off.

Tony has a very loyal wife that tries to overlook his "indiscretions" with other women while trying to come to an understanding about her own religious beliefs. The two have two adolecent children that have "real" problems like all other kids. During the season the two come to realize that there is more to their father's "business" than they thought.

Great character actors make up Tony's mob. Should not be missed!
