All right, all right, so that’s from The Godfather. But they idolize those movies SO MUCH on this show that it makes it ok to use the world’s most overused mafia cliche, right?
So in case you haven’t gotten this, we’re watching The Sopranos this week. Specifically, we’re watching Season 1 – Episodes 1, 2, and 5. It’s ok, you can start nodding along with the theme song…now.
For the somehow uninitiated (do you exist?), this HBO series starring James Gandolfini, Lorraine Bracco, and basically anyone who’s ever been in a mobster movie before or since premiered in 1999 and is widely credited with ushering in our current Golden Age of Television. Tony Soprano is also the TV antihero that spawned a million successors and imitators.
So get watching, or Paulie might come visit you.*
