An innovative look at the life of fictional Mafia Capo Tony Soprano, this serial is presented largely first person, but additional perspective is conveyed by the intimate conversations Tony has with his psychotherapist. We see Tony at work, at home, and in therapy. Moments of black comedy intersperse this aggressive, adult drama, with adult language, and extreme violence. Written by
Made in America. (season 6, part 2)

Did You Know?
At least three prominent American film directors played characters in the series: Peter Bogdanovich
as psychologist Dr. Elliot Kupferberg in the only major recurring role, but Paul Mazursky
and Sydney Pollack
also appeared in a total of three episodes. Among actor/directors, Steve Buscemi
was not only a prominent cast member, featured in 13 episodes, but he also directed four other shows. Jon Favreau
appears playing himself in Season 2, Episode 7. However, Martin Scorsese
--referred to in some episodes by Sopranos characters familiar with his work simply as "Marty"--is played by a lookalike in the series' second episode when the director is supposed to have been spotted entering a club. See more
The layout of the windows in Dr. Melfi's inner room/office is illogical. That is, in an early episode, we see Tony dodge Silvio in the hallway of Melfi's office building. It appears to be a typical medical plaza building with multiple physician's offices on that hallway (e.g. the dentist Silvio was visiting, the office into which Tony ducked, and Dr. Melfi's office which we also see.) We see Melfi's office here in the middle of the hallway, not on the corner of the building. Therefore, the two sets of windows in Melfi's inner office are illogical. The windows in front of Tony (behind Melfi) make sense, as they are in a straight line from the hallway. However, the windows to Tony's right are not possible, as they would be looking into the office of the neighboring physician's office on the hallway. See more
