    Yes.
    You may take an episode or two to get into it, but once you do, you'll be hooked.

    It didn't take an episode or two. It two a minute or two to get me hooked. And the missus, too.
    I can't wait for the new box set!!!!!

    Maybe for me, it was the fact that I didn't see the pilot until almost two years after the show premiered (similar situation to Todd). The hype was astronomical and I found the pilot not as compelling as I'd imagined it to be. Then I watched a couple more episodes. It deserves every bit of its hype, if that's at all possible.
    The answer to the question is still an overwhelming YES.

    I was gonna rent it just to see, but the only place here which has it is charging $3.50 PER DISC to rent the seasons. They can keep it.

    Like most great series The Sopranos is not the concept it's the writing. This is fantastically well plotted and dialogue-driven. I had the same feeling when I finally saw the series, as I did when watching Fight Club - that finally someone had remembered what good writing was all about.
