After Hours>What was the fcuking big deal about the Sopranos?

At the time it was great. It was before we were blessed with dozens of brilliant series at our fingertips at all times. If someone sits down to watch it now having not watched it at all it probably won't have aged well.

I agree.
My brother and his wife walked out half way through Pulp Fiction in the cinema. (he must be adopted or something). That doesn't mean that it wasn't a great ground breaking movie

Personally I've seen Supranos three times over the last 20 years and I might go a fourth round yet.

Why so? It's a perfect think with their hearts and not their heads and are therefore open to manipulation.

They'll make the same mistake in real life. They'll take back their husband who beats them, etc, etc. The same reason many people voted for Trump...

I loved the Sopranos. Everything in it just worked and was mostly clever in my opinion. Now parts of it were unbelievable in ways but I didn't care I just was totally entertained. I rooted for Tony at the start but in the end I just thought he was a low life as were most of these guys.

I tried the wire but never got in to it.

The Sopranos is like a well written broadsheet while the Mentalist is like the Sun.

LOL...

You dislike the Sopranos because it's about murders yet love a show (per wiki):

About two womanising plastic surgeons. Go figure :confused:

It might just make me binge watch the pile of steaming manure that was Breaking Bad. What a crappy TV show that was.

Ugh, I dunno I go back and forth on that tbh. The first two seasons are pretty bad but it really amps up from season 3 into some pretty good TV.

For an all action, leave your brain at the door kind of show though Banshee blows it out of the water.

The Sopranos was responsible for killing two shows that should've been let run to completion as both were amazing, Carnivale and Deadwood. The Sopranos was such a success HBO dropped both and added their budgets to the Sopranos bringing it up to close to $1 million per episode
