After James Gandolfini’s recent, tragic passing I realized I had never watched The Sopranos before but always wanted to. I started a major marathon watching every episode from the first season. I am now up to season 4 and there are 6 seasons in total. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s definitely one of the best shows ever made for television. I'd always thought the show was just about the mafia but after watching it I realize it’s about family and it’s brilliantly well done. A very tight-knit, dysfunctional family but family nonetheless. Gandolfini is amazing in it of course. RIP Mr. Gandolfini, we'll miss ya. I’m powering on with my marathon until I finish every episode so if you need me knock on the shell.
