A year ago today, James Gandolfini died. It was a devastating event, one that left a large impact on the acting world. He is remembered highly for his film performances and so on, but nobody will ever forget his starring role in one of, if not THE greatest TV Show of all time, The Sopranos.
The Sopranos is not an addictive show; it’s not the kind of program that you’ll watch three episodes of and then find yourself losing sleep because you’re watching it. It’s too heavy for that, and it’s too brilliant. The excellence of the show needs to be handled in small doses. Every episode is like a masterpiece, with hardly any bad ones throughout its six season run. They were tense, gripping, nerve shredding, hilarious, heartbreaking, adrenaline fuelled and so much more, to the point where watching an episode feels like watching your favourite movie.
The show is legendary for all the right reasons, and a show everybody should see.
