False advertising

This played like a home movie made in someone's basement with their uncle's old video equipment. The synopsis says not made by HBO, and you better believe that's true. Minor characters gave some commentary, but there was no participation by any of the major stars, directors, writers, or production people from the series. It's B list -- no, take that back -- C list all the way. One hour and 57 minutes we will never get back. Imagine being held captive by cringe-worthy moments and endless footage of nothing, people standing around sets while the narrator weaves some odd tale. Then imagine having coffee with the owners of the original locations, each one looking for their 15 minutes of fame, turning small anecdotes into "epic" stories that are truly uninteresting and boring. Save yourself. Rewatch the series. Skip the Behind-The-Scenes... god only knows what volume two has to offer... we'll take a pass.

Meh...

I'm trying to figure out how the production quality of this film could be any worse. At a few points throughout the show, the narrator is actually reading his lines over the phone!
Very little of it is of any real interest. Perhaps the most interesting thing is how many of the "civilians" who's homes or places of business were used in the show, constantly refer to the actors by their character's names. It's also interesting how all of those civilians have absolutely ZERO interesting stories to share. "yeah, Tony and Big Pussy came in here a couple of times" is not a riveting anecdote.

HUGE Sopranos fan, but this wasn't for me. Look at the ratings on this one folks.

I would cancel my cable service back in the day, and renew it with HBO for the season, and then get rid of it again just to see The Sopranos.shows
The Sopranos for me is one of the top 10 shows of all time. But sometimes on Amazon, you have to pay attention to the ratings.
Only the absolute fanatical diehard who will like one or two still shots, or maybe a tidbit of information that they didn't have before
should sit through this blowhard show. 2 hours, I wish I had back and I won't be watching part 2.

But for the rabid fan.................in 2018.....

Truly boring
Verified purchase
Big disappointment. Low resolution and really not much actual entertainment. However, if you are one of those fans who wants to know everything about everything to do with the show, you might want to give this a go. I only got half way through it and fell asleep.

OK, just OK
Verified purchase
OK. I got about halfway through it, then got bored. Some interesting anecdotes, but nothing to keep you glued to the show. Being from Jersey, it's a little more interesting since I know the areas where the shooting took place. I wonder about someone outside of the area though. But then again, I figured the show wouldn't appeal to anybody outside of the northease

It enriches your enjoyment when you're watching those scenes and episodes
Verified purchase
The behind the scenes stuff about how they did stunts and special effects, and the interviews with actors discussing anecdotes about certain episodes is really worthwhile. It enriches your enjoyment when you're watching those scenes and episodes. The clips showing the actors playing around were sorta cute.

But the pacing is obviously plodding, and WAY too much time is spent devoted to interviewing the nobodies who own the buildings in order to make this a two-part series. Fiore got about twice as much screentime as necessary. It should be condensed into an hourlong film with a faster pace, and it would be an actually entertaining movie.

Oh and the 90's called... they want their music and graphics back.

True Die Hard Soprano Fans will Love It
Verified purchase
I think people forget this show was made in the early 2000’s when production wasn’t HD and 4K. Behind the scenes Sopranos has been something the Creator and HBO have kept private and under wraps so for any true Sopranos fan, i’d rather have this than nothing! Love the interviews and behind the scenes of filming and stories. Sopranos was the first of its kind and an all time TV series. Thanks for the memories.

The editing and theme is like watching something made by Tim and Eric
Verified purchase
How did this possibly come out in 2016? that can't be true. The editing and theme is like watching something made by Tim and Eric, the background music is outdated and obnoxious (talking late 80's training video music) and I kid you not, the narrator sounded like he was doing his job over a very poor phone connection- in fact I'm almost certain it was done over a phone.
