Blu-ray Release: “The Sopranos” The Complete Series

Editor’s note: Back when The Sopranos was airing, HBO released the two parts of season six and then season one, but never released seasons 2-5. It looks like that has changed with this upcoming release. With James Gandolfini’s untimely passing, this could regenerate interest in the series.
