And so it goes for Tony Soprano, New Jersey mob boss. His capos' mistakes are costing him quality time with his mistress. His daughter's Ivy League education is being compromised by the son of his ex-boss. His own son is doing everything he can to never get into college. His wife is searching for relief from the sins of the family. And as his shrink is quick to remind him, his dearly departed mother continues to cast her shadow over everything that Tony does. It's Season 3 of HBO's Emmy®-winning drama series that takes a realistic, darkly humorous look at the members of a suburban New Jersey family, whose patriarch (James Gandolfini) happens to be a mob boss. As the season begins in the wake of the deaths of Big Pussy and Richie Aprile, the feds make their biggest play yet to nab Tony. But that is the least of Tony's problems as he faces challenges from some tough newcomers, such as fiery hothead Ralph Cifaretto, New York crime boss Johnny Sack and a sexy car saleswoman.
