  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Well, here it is, The Sopranos: Season Six, Part 1. The Emmy

DVD Picture:
Like the previously released seasons, the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 episodes exhibit satisfying sharpness and definition, although the inconsistent shadow delineation can mask details in the dark scenes. Color fidelity is well rendered, and edge enhancement and pixilation is not much of an issue. (Danny Richelieu)
