📺 How Good Was it Really: The Sopranos 📺

Never finished the Sopranos tbh, found it decent but not captivating. Quite middlebrow.

Would be really nice if you mentioned what the last programme you added to the spreadsheet was. It’s quite a lot to take in with so many on it now. Just a thought…

I have watched five or six episodes of season one. It seems really boring and I dislike any Mafia-related media so I have voted accordingly.

Amazing writing and acting. Probably the first serial drama I got into.

in all honesty it’s my fave. it depicted depression in a way i had never seen before, it was more about the ambient paint of modern life than the mafia, real heads know the best stuff was the things that went unsaid, the seemingly directionless nature of the plotting where everything happened deep beneath the surface, all the performances were great but jim gave one of the best ever in any medium, and the sheer weirdness of it, the idiosyncratic ways people behaved, how stuff went nowhere and that was the point, the sly comedy, the lies and corruption bringing everyone deeper into the darkness…so genius. mad men runs it a close second for similar reasons.
