I was gonna order the Sopranos BluRay set from Amazon which is priced $80. Each time I’m ready to order it and think I’m ready to order it, the set keeps getting sold out. When they get some more copies in later, it keeps getting sold out. Really weird but understandable since the show is still extremely popular even after all these years. Even though the show was aired on HBO in the late 90’s, I’m sure the show is the most streamable show on Amazon Prime and HBO NOW.
Now that the new streaming service HBO MAX is here, I’m sure the show will be the most streamable on there too. The show is still a big hit and The Sopranos DVDs and BluRay sets are still selling pretty big.
The show is still so freakin’ popular that fans begged creator David Chase to create a sequel or a reboot but he says neither will happen. As a way to make fans happy, that sparked the idea for David Chase to create the prequel film “The Many Saints of Newark” which stars Michael Gandolfini who plays the young, Tony Soprano in it.
That prequel film to the Sopranos was in the works but it’s on hold right now ’cause of covid-19 so the film’s release date was pushed back even further which sucks. I’m looking forward to it, though. The film’s got an all-star cast with Ray Liotta, Corey Stohl and Jon Bernthal. The film will focus on the story of the 1967 riots that I’m sure was brought up in the TV show.
It was smart to cast Mike Gandolfini as the young Tony Soprano ’cause he looks exactly like a young Tony Soprano. Will Mike be able to nail Tony’s speaking voice? Probably. I’m sure he’ll knock it out of the park. While the prequel film will focus on the 1967 riots, I’m sure the film will lead up to the TV show like how the Dimeo family was formed and hopefully it’ll show how Tony and Carmella met. I’m sure the show will definitely show how Christoher’s dad, Dickie Moltisanti was killed since Dickie is featured in the prequel film. If the prequel film ever gets out, I’m sure it’ll be a box office smash. People still love the Sopranos even after all these years.
I’m dying to buy the boxset to the show, though. I want to add this show to my BluRay collection ’cause it’s one of those shows you can watch over and over. It’s an addicting show.
