It’s rare for me to remotely like the leading character in most TV shows these days. The Sopranos is one of the exceptions where Tony Soprano was my favourite character in the bunch. Epic father figure. Titan of a mob boss. I’d want him on my side in a fight, that’s for sure.
What really surprised me about The Sopranos was the humour. It was more prevalent in the earlier seasons. Sure it was a dark and sinister show at times, but there was plenty of humour in it. Paulie was the source of a lot of the humour. But I remember having a few good laugh out loud moments.

The Sopranos is an epic TV show. I do understand why it’s up there in amongst the best TV shows ever lists. The Sopranos will probably be in my top 10, that’s for sure. All down to Tony Soprano. mob boss, Tony Soprano, is one mother of a character. You know, no matter how ruthless and cold he was at times, I couldn’t help but be on his side while he was being that cold ruthless bastard he was. Especially in a lot of the scenes with Melfi. There might have been a couple of times when I yelled at the TV screen, at Melfi, to shut up.
The Sopranos. Done and dusted. It was one of those shows that I missed out on when it first started airing. Probably because I wasn’t nearly as TV obsessed as I am now. Some time ago Sky Atlantic started from the very beginning with the show and being the current TV obsessive I am now, I couldn’t not pass up giving this show a watch.
