Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best The Sopranos Quotes from famous authors such as Alex Horne, Camille Paglia, Morgan Saylor, Mark Lawrenson, James Gandolfini. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
I never watched ‘The Godfather’ and it seems too late now. The same happened with ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘The Wire’ and ‘Peaky Blinders.’ I don’t know if they can be compared but they feel to me like they had a lot of male violence that I’m not massively into.
I remember turning ‘The Sopranos’ on once and within two minutes nearly throwing a brick through the screen.
My first proper credit was a small voice-over on an episode of ‘The Sopranos’ when I was, like, 11 or 12.
HBO churn out some unbelievable stuff. They really got me with things like ‘Band of Brothers.’ But you can’t beat ‘The Sopranos.’
‘The Sopranos’ all came down to the writing. I wouldn’t have been on for as long as I was if the writing weren’t so good.
Between ‘The Godfather,’ ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘Goodfellas,’ and the countless other mob stories that have been both critically and commercially acclaimed over the years, it’s not hard to see why a game like ‘Mafia Wars’ works.
If you see the Sopranos, you’re not going to be speaking in the Shakespearean English.
More and more, you’re seeing television shows that are better than 99% of the movies out there. I mean, you watch something like the last couple of seasons of ‘The Sopranos,’ which is some of the most sophisticated writing I’ve ever seen filmed and some of the best filmmaking I’ve ever seen – and it’s a TV show.
On its surface, the HBO documentary series ‘Hard Knocks,’ about the New York Jets’ training camp, resembles another HBO series, ‘The Sopranos.’ Both star the stout patriarch of a New Jersey ‘family’ preoccupied with food, intimidation, and florid profanity.
It’s people politics, people dynamics that make a show really good, whether it’s ‘Desperate Housewives’ or ‘Lost’ or ‘The Sopranos.’ It’s the people we’ve grown to love or otherwise.
Like ‘Twin Peaks,’ ’24,’ ‘Mad Men,’ and ‘The Sopranos’ before it, ‘Downton Abbey’ enriches the iconography and collective lore of pop culture. It replenishes the stream.
Being on ‘The Sopranos’ definitely prepared me for the militant secrecy of ‘Mad Men.’
Very often at the end of ‘The Sopranos’ you get the feeling that its not under control, you should be very worried, and life is kind of really, really messed up at lot of times. It leaves you feeling very disconcerted. That was kind of the point of it.
If I have to read another cultural studies analysis of ‘The Sopranos,’ I give up. There’s an awful lot of rubbish around masquerading as cultural studies.
‘The Sopranos’ was a very East Coast show; ‘Heroes’ is more organically global.
I didn’t watch T.V. from the time I was 18 ’til my mid-30s. And then I got a T.V. to watch ‘The Sopranos.’ I realized, ‘Oh, T.V. is really interesting.’
I like watching American TV shows like ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ etc. I also like to watch dance reality shows since I love to dance, even though I haven’t been trained in dancing.
There’s nothing funnier for me than taking two characters and throwing them into a pressure cooker and letting them turn on each other. Especially if they already tend to be loud, aggressive, alpha types. That’s sort of everything from ‘The Honeymooners’ to ‘Goodfellas’ to ‘The Sopranos.’
Personally, I don’t think we could do such a show if we didn’t get along. The subtext of all this is that we’re women in a show so we can’t possibly get along. It’s not like they write about The Sopranos like that.
All the dramas I admire most – ‘Six Feet Under,’ ‘The Sopranos’ – even when the scenes aren’t laugh-out-loud funny, per se, there’s a comic twist that gives the stories an energy.
I started acting in ‘The Sopranos’ around 1999 and 2000. I did that for six years. That was quite a job, and I loved it.
When I read the pilot of ‘The Sopranos,’ I wasn’t terribly blown away by it.
I can’t actually believe how good ‘The Sopranos’ is. I genuinely am dumbfounded by it. It’s like when you realize how good The Beatles are, and you think, ‘How did they do that?’
It frustrates me that Britain can’t make something like ‘CSI’ or ‘The Sopranos’. Instead, British TV puts soap in primetime while every other civilized nation leaves it in daytime. Viewers should be more demanding.
I don’t know if I would have had the same career had I not done ‘GoodFellas.’ Probably not. Would I have been cast on ‘The Sopranos?’ Who knows if there would have been a ‘Sopranos?’
We’re seeing TV series that are as good as movies were in the ’70s and ’80s – shows like ‘The Wire,’ ‘The Sopranos’ and ‘Breaking Bad.’
I remember watching episodes of ‘The Sopranos’ and being filled with dread knowing what was coming or anticipating what was coming. I don’t think that that’s always a bad thing. I think sometimes the audience needs a little catharsis held away from them.
I think that the difference between ‘The Sopranos’ and the shows that came before it was that it was really personal. There had been a lot of dramas, a lot of really good ones, a lot of really bad ones, but they were always franchise shows about cops, or doctors, or lawyers. They weren’t about the writer himself.
With TV season structures – and I’m a huge TV watcher – you look at shows like ‘Breaking Bad,’ which is my favorite show of all time, and ‘The Sopranos,’ which is pretty high up there as well, and there was that thing where, every season, Walter White would go up a level, but there would be a new bad.
I am box-set girl; I buy into those big American series like ‘The Sopranos’ and ‘Heroes.’
‘The Sopranos,’ for instance, is arguably the best cable show of all time. They could have made a movie, but that show ended so perfectly, it would almost be a disadvantage to make a movie like that. Then again, if you made a ‘Sopranos’ movie, people would be lined around the block to go see it.
It’s funny – I was a big fan of ‘The Sopranos.’ It became kind of a threat to ‘The X-Files’ in a way because they could play with language, character, and story in ways that we never could because of the limitations of network television.
I think a lot of people who didn’t know my work before ‘The Sopranos’ think I came from the Jersey Shore, like they picked us out of the mall and put us on television.
In ‘The Sopranos,’ these guys know their best years are behind them. They have nostalgia for their old traditions. In their minds, they’re looking for a time when loyalty mattered, community mattered. E Street is about community, too. People are looking for something real.
‘The Sopranos’ only reflected the tenor of how things are done in New Jersey. They didn’t invent it. And I say that as a fan of both ‘The Sopranos’ and New Jersey.
John Ventimiglia, who was on ‘The Sopranos,’ was in my first acting class and we have been friends since that time. Alec Baldwin was in my class back then, Sean Young and Andrew McCarthy.
I wrote for ‘The Sopranos’ and worked on big, blustery characters for quite a while.
‘The Sopranos’ wardrobe people would sometimes go over there and just grab stuff off the racks, because B&G has that style that never ages. It’s like a ’50s or ’60s style. It fits me well.
The best of American television is thought-provoking, original, brilliant, exciting – from ‘The Sopranos’ on, whether it’s ‘The Wire’ or ‘Breaking Bad’ or ‘House of Cards,’ they’re fantastic pieces of art.
The government itself is running exactly like the Sopranos and they sit back and they make deals. And they say okay, ‘I’m going do this: France, you’re getting the pipelines.’
Our amour fou with ‘The Sopranos’ is headed for long-term parking, like so many of its most memorable characters. We’ll never see a show like this again.
I’m not one of these people who say how much better American drama is than English. I find it mostly too American, except for The Sopranos, which I think is the best thing.
I had some experience when I joined ‘The Sopranos’ in the last season. My character married Christopher, and everyone loved Adriana. I knew what it was like to join a very beloved, secretive show and following a very iconic character.
One FBI agent told us early on that on Monday morning, they would get to the FBI office, and all the agents would talk about ‘The Sopranos’, having the same conversation about the show, but always from the flip side.
