‘Sopranos’ box set on sale in November
NEW YORK – A 30-disc box set with every episode of the HBO series “The Sopranos” goes on sale Nov. 11 with a list price of US$399.99, HBO Video said Monday.
Besides seven seasons worth of episodes, the set has two bonus DVDs that include an interview with creator David Chase by Alec Baldwin. The set will have two “Supper with the Sopranos” features, sit-down dinners (food not included) with Chase and various actors discussing their favourite scenes, auditions and other aspects of the show.
Chase also discusses how the show was cast and the evolution of the characters. He includes three music soundtrack CDs that he curated and were previously released, and 16 scenes that were filmed but never made it on the air. The set includes a recording of a New York seminar on cast members who were whacked and various spoofs on other TV outlets.
Four hundred dollars won’t buy you Tony Soprano, however. James Gandolfini didn’t participate in any of the “extras.”
