Vik is Pure Poetry

I love the episodes with cast and crew interviews. I LOVE the more recent episodes in which Vik goes through the episodes by himself. His passion is unmatched, and none of his cohorts were up to his level. Every podcast doesn’t have to be a speculative conversation. A concise monologue is just fine with me.

Soprano Podcast for Hardcore Soprano Fans

Great deep dive analysis of the Sopranos, episode by episode. Vik has a deep love and passion for the show and it is very obvious. Makes you think about a lot of scenes in episodes that are often overlooked. It leads way to show the genius of the sopranos writing.

The one criticism I have for the show is the over the top sidebars/tangents that this show goes on. It can get annoying and frankly exhausting. Especially when the tangent has nothing to do with the sopranos at all. An example would be if something is in the background that may or may not have no significance to the show and what is currently taking place but the host somehow finds a reason to discuss it and give you the full history on that topic. If only the host shortened these tangents, or better yet did away with half of them, the show would be much more well received and easier to digest.
