Welcome to Light On Light Through, Episode 94, in which I revisit one of the greatest shows ever to have been on television: The Sopranos. The occasion is the release by HBO of The Sopranos: The Complete Series on Blu-ray and Digital HD on November 4, 2014, containing the complete 86-episode run of the series, as well as bonus feautures including a new documentary, "Defining a Television Landmark," in which I'm interviewed. To commemorate this release, I've prepared a special episode of this podcast with my reviews of the final nine episodes of the series, recorded minutes after each episode ended, along with three additional pieces with my thoughts in the days after the finale. These originally appeared on another one of my podcasts, Levinson News Clips, which has been unavailable for the past few years. Enjoy.
