    Jim has never seen The Godfather 3, so he might as well watch The Godfather CODA: The Death Of Michael Corleone which Francis Ford Coppola looks at as the definitive cut! The bastard stepchild of the Godfather trilogy is looking for redemption, does it deserve it?

boss furio ,

great for Sopranos fans and first timers

With The Sopranos' recent 20th anniversary, I decided to come back to it and watch it entirely from start to finish. Despite starting the show during its original TV run, I hadn't quite finished it. So, for my (partial) re-watch, I wanted to listen to a podcast that was spoiler free and progressed through the series episode by episode. This podcast by Jim and Jakob was a great find. I've listened to almost every Sopranos episode of this podcast, having recently passed it. Even though I've completed my Sopranos rewatch, I'll surely listen to more episodes of this very entertaining podcast covering what was the greatest TV series I've ever experienced.

The format of the podcast is a scene-by-scene analysis by Jim and Jakob. They cover the series almost from a perspective of TV writers, discussing how effective it is and the emotions it successfully elicits from the audience. These guys are pretty knowledgable about TV, find references to other TV shows, and can point out how particular aspects of The Sopranos have influenced shows which came after. They also have an acute sense of humor; they find things hilarious that many people probably wouldn't notice, and they laugh a lot during this podcast. It provides a lot of entertainment and makes you enjoy The Sopranos even more. If you're not interested in overanalyzing an awesome TV show (some podcasts on The Sopranos do find meaning where there is none), but looking for more insight on the show during your rewatch (or spoiler-free first watch), you can find it here.

I'd recommend finding the video streams of these broadcasts on YouTube! You can see their reactions on video which makes it even more humorous. They've recently stopped streaming themselves, though, and only show a banner image of a scene from The Sopranos. Hopefully they'll do video streams for the final episodes of the show.

The best tv review podcast ever.

I love this podcast. They should do some episodes on the tv show Gotham. I think they’d do a great job breaking down the show!
