    Yes, I'm a little late to the party. I just never got the hype back in the day (and didn't have HBO) so I think I may have just watched an episode or 2 at a friend's house or something. It's an ok show but didn't exactly blow me away. Does it get much better as it goes along?

    WonkyEye - I've never seen it either. I can recommend BoardWalk Empire though.

    See, that's an example I was gonna use in my original post. A show that got big at a time I wasn't really paying attention to TV. After a while I'd be hanging out with friends or at work and it became a thing where people would always quote the show or "this is like that Seinfeld episode where George....". So it got to a point where I didn't have any interest in it although I've watched a few episodes here and there. About 2 years ago someone gave me a copy of Season's 1 & 2 on DVD and I've yet to watch it.

    I loved BE. Sad that they rushed the last season. I wish they'd gone on a bit longer.

    Both good dramas... BE is cool, but Sopranos is more realistic.

    Gandolfini has a squeaky high pitched voice in season one.
    James evolves into Tony Soprano. Hang in there

    Soprano seasons were funky. Sometimes 18 month layoff?
    You'll notice the kids suddenly grow up and out. Both gain and lose weight.

    .....and Tony and Silvio pork up too

    It started out with the mother being such a huge factor, that's less so in season 2 and not at all after that (the actress died). I thought the show was better with less of her, the actress did a great job but her being a constant aggravation was too easy and a bit overused.

    Mom Soprano died in real life but still appeared in the show.
    She was CGI'd too

    Yeah, the first season was just a trial run for the actors to find the right vocal and acting styles for their characters to make them believable and have chemistry with the other characters. Gandolfini's NJ accent wasn't good yet.
