Jim and Jakob are able to break down tv shows with humor and insight that are unmatched by any tv podcast out there! Throw in a show completely dedicated to breaking down every episode of my favorite show, the Sopranos, and you get one of the most enjoyable podcasts around.
I highly recommend this for any Sopranos fan and also for those who haven’t watched the Sopranos. Go week by week with the guys and you won’t be disappointed on either front. Also go check out their other podcast, Shows What You Know, these two make magic together. Keep up the great work!!
Excellent choice sir! One of the best podcasts on one of the best shows in exsistence! I recommend with a side of Gabagool!
Excellent Sopranos podcast
Definitely listen to this if you need some Sopranos commentary. The two hosts have a great dynamic and their analysis continues to evolve alongside the show. It's always exciting to see someone react to The Sopranos for the first time, so you get that perspective as well.
I've seen the show at least ten times, and this podcast still brings new things to light for me. The Sopranos is such a unique show, it somehow keeps changing even though the episodes stay the same. So new Sopranos analysis is always welcome, especially when it's done well, like this!
