Every season of ‘The Sopranos’ ranked worst to best

via HBO

With the recent deaths of The Sopranos actors Tony Sirico and Bruce MacVittie, we decided to put together a season-by-season ranking of HBO’s popular mobster series. Although each season is excellent and there is no consensus on the order, we have added the opinions of fans, critics and this writer to make our decisions.

Season 2 (2000)

The second season of The sopranos It has some big moments, like Tony’s trip to Italy and the deaths of Richie (David Proval) and Big Pussy (Vincent Pastore), but it’s too dreamy for our sensibilities. We mean it literally. The second season has more scenes showing the unconscious fabrications of the characters than any other. While we’re not enemies of dream sequences (some of the dreams, especially in later seasons, are among the best parts of the series), season two is too heavy on fantasy and too light on the cynical but believable reality that The sopranos skilfully cultivated.

Season 5 (2004)

Season five is arguably the least memorable run of The Sopranos. The highlights are Steve Buscemi’s character, Tony Blundetto, and his death by the barrel of Tony Soprano’s shotgun; Adriana’s (Drea de Matteo) cooperation with the FBI inevitably catches up with her; the extramafia activities of Vito (Joseph R. Gannascoli); and the black bear in Carmela’s backyard. Aside from those stories, the fifth season didn’t have the makings of a college season, but it still garnered four Emmy Awards.

Season 4 (2002)

Some fans consider the season to be a fan of The sopranos be melodramatic Much of it revolves around the romance, but it is one of the most tense, explosive, and downright deadly romances ever depicted on screen. Tony and Carmela’s marriage deteriorates, facilitating exceptional performances by James Gandolfini and Edie Falco, respectively; Carmela has an emotional and almost physical affair with Tony’s bodyguard, Furio (Federico Castelluccio); and Tony has a quasi-romantic relationship with Ralph Cifaretto’s (Joe Pantoliano) racehorse who dies in a stable fire, Tony blames Ralph and kills him for it.

Season 1 (1999)

The first season of The sopranos gets credit for starting it all: introducing viewers to an animal-loving mobster in therapy and his complex circle of (mis)trust. Beyond introducing these characters and their incredible actors, the first season features pivotal stories like Tony’s first on-screen success, his toxic relationship with his mother Livia (Nancy Marchand), his children discovering his ties to the mob, and the assassination attempt on his life. The sopranos he was finding himself during his first season, which we appreciate but should also count against his ranking.

Season 3 (2001)

via HBO

the third season of The sopranos is the only installment with a perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It contains, among many other hallmarks: the rise and fall of Jackie Jr. (Jason Cerbone); the rape of Dr. Melfi (Lorraine Bracco) and her irritating ethical restraint; Tony’s guilt surrounding a demoted traffic cop; and the highest-rated episode, “Pine Barrens,” in which Chris (Michael Imperioli) and Paulie (Tony Sirico) track down a Russian resister through the titular snowy forest. The worst thing we can say about season three is CGI Livia. Shaking chills.

Season 6 (2006/2007)

via HBO

The last season of The sopranos it was released in two parts: 12 episodes in 2006 and nine episodes in 2007. While some publications categorize the parts separately, we put it all together and found it too stacked to put anywhere other than the floor. Season six tells of Uncle Junior’s (Dominic Chianese) sad descent into dementia; Tony’s near-fatal shooting, resulting coma, and his transformation into Kevin Finnerty, a fantasy Tony who traded his criminal case for a briefcase; Vito being found out and expelled; AJ’s (Robert Iler) suicide attempt; Tony and Bobby’s (Steve Schirripa) drunken fight; and the deaths of many iconic characters. Of course, there’s the black cut at the end, which left a lot of fans feeling cheated, but not us.
