Top Ten Best Sopranos CharactersOne of the greatest T.V. series ever made. Who are the top 10 best characters?
The Top Ten
Evil Mobster who killed his nephew but also a loving father who has been known to feel guilt or do someone a good turn now and then.
The greatest T.V. character of all time. Gleason is #2.
Of course he is. Maybe even the top character in T.V. history.
The show was so concentrated on him that this list should be Top 10 besides Tony. - Billyv
Had the best story in season one and was the most useful plot device character as well as being executed the most memorable way.
Brendan Filone is shot clean through the eye, "Moe Greene Special" and it's the most powerfully climactic scene, coupled with the "All Through The Night" montage. Best death scene + he was my favorite character in the series run.
Paulie was a manipulative borderline Sociopath who was dismissive of others feelings and was always seeking approval from his criminal boss Tony Soprano.he started out as the loyal soldier he was in the first two seasons but started to resent Tony,s favoritism toward his nephew Christopher moltisanti and Ralph Cifarettto who was a better earner than paulie could ever hope to be paulie was also an incredibly spiteful person as he tried to have Ralph whacked for the smallest things. after being arrested on charges of gun possession and feeling isolated from the family paulie outright betrayed Tony by trading secrets with new York underboss Johnny Sack which Tony later discovers and plots to kill paulie but let,s him live as Tony much like the audience knows Paulie,s a snake a rat an ass and a bully but loves him anyway
Amazing how Matt plots to take out Chris and flees the scene of the attempted assassination gone awry only to be tracked down by Pussy and Tony and riddled with bullets after begging for his life when tied to a chair! What an amazing character!
Sean surprises Christopher, wazzup! Bang! Get that mo$&@&! *+ Seatbelt! The seatbelt was stuck and Chris retaliated, Sean dead with a bullet to the head and smoking glock in his hand as the car slides and crashes with Matt fleeing the scene and bullets riddled on the pavement. Amazing scene.
Christopher is a really loveable scumbag who takes pride in his murders frequently takes out his anger at his girlfriend Adrianna Lacerva. and thinks he,s entitled to more respect than he actually deserves yet somehow you feel great sympathy when the equally scummy Paulie Gualtieri punishes him. Christopher is an extstremely witty individual with a tough guy exterior who secretly feels lonely and insecure something his uncle Tony Soprano used to manipulate Christopher into being loyal to him. Christopher,s loyalty was so great he sacrificed Adrianna after she turned rat something he felt a lot of remorse for after falling of the wagon going back to drugs due to taunting from paulie Christopher was considered a liability to the family by Tony who coldly killed his surrogate son
He's A G it's Genetics
As uncle to crime boss Tony Soprano corado soprano Junior,s life was full of tragedy starting when his brother Johnny boy Soprano died. While junior,s morality was questionable at best you had to feel bad for the guy it,s obvious he did love his nephew but Tony was seeing a therapist and junior had to fulfil his duties by ordering a hit on Tony. The fact he was being manipulated by Tony,s mother Livia also helped build audience sympathies. Junior is an old school mobster seen when he refuses to break Omerta after being arrested at the end of season one.Junior felt remorse for his treatment of his nephew insisting Tony make peace with Livia for the sake of his nephew,s mental state junior did briefly conspire with Richie Aprile against Tony but ultimately betrayed him due to a mix of business interest and genuine love for his nephew. Junior then get diagnosed with cancer beating it only to fall victim to dementia which made him crazy shooting Tony because he thought Tony was an old ...more
Silvio always did his best to Comfort Tony defended him from others and just seemed less sadistic Compared with guys like Chris and Paulie Even Tony who Murdered his own nephew obviously loved Silvio dearly as shown by his reaction when Silvio was hospitalized
Silvio is a more complex character than it seems at first glance he,ll murder without remorse yet has a system of honor always following the old codes and loved his family deeply but always cheats on his wife and is Pervy enough to own a strip club. I think he is probably the most loyal of tony,s crew other than maybe christopher. Props to steven van Zandt who doesn,t get enough credit for his nuanced portrayal of his character
Bobby,s just too kind to be a mobster due to the writers amazingly portraying Bobby,s kinder side such as his loyalty protectiveness of his children love for his wife etcetera you forgive Bobby more than you do the others I mean the guy was involved with loan sharking intimidation and murder but somehow his death comes off as tragedy instead of well deserved karma i,d also like to add I think Tony Soprano came to love Bobby in a way after Bobby married his sister Janice
She was a dick
I like Artie,s Character not because his personality is particularly interesting or compelling,rather because he has a way of bringing out the soft side of Murdering thug Tony Soprano.Tony,s plan to burn down Vesuvius Was immoral but he was(in his own way) trying to do something good for his childhood friend.Tony,s love for Artie is also clear when he invites him to live with him.Who else but Artie Bucco could insult Tony,beat up one of his associates,aim a gun at him etc.to put it simply Artie and Tony,s affection and blind spot for him prove that our favourite Mob boss still has some good in him.
Howcome 1-episode-rs are on #2 and #3 and Johnny Sack sits here at 23 geez. One of the best characters on the show. And I just realized Melfi is 24. Has anyone voting here even watched the show?
Johnny Sack was the underboss of new York a pragmatic manipulate man who sincerely loved his wife and daughter who he was loyal to however his loyalty to his friends in the mob were questionable as he manipulated Ralph Cifaretto Paulie Gualtieri and Tony Soprano though in Tony,s Case there was some genuine affection John got much more ruthless during the power struggle with Little Carmine Lupertazzi When he was arrested John took a plea agreement to provide for the wife he was always faithful to costing him respect however after his death from cancer Tony raised a glass in Honor of his fallen friend showing he missed the Scumbag and we do to.
Furio was a hard nosed assassin and enforcer for new jersey mob boss Tony Soprano who he was immensely loyal to while he first comes off as a sociopath who,d beat a kid as punishment and not bat an eyelid Furio had a more sensitive side seen with his grief over his father,s death and his secret interest in Tony,s wife carmela while he contemplated murdering Tony to be With Carmela he felt too strongly about mob code he then went into hiding as he was worried he,s break his own moral code proving he had more decency than guys like Tony Phil Leotardo or Ralph cifaretto ever did
In a series full of prices Jackie was one of the more likeable characters perhaps as he was so short lived he was reasonable level headed funny and a good friend so what if he was a womanizing mob boss by this show,s standards he,s a saint making his death from cancer and the conflicts it caused between Tony Soprano and his uncle junior for control all the more tragic
