Modern television was born with The Sopranos. Much like how The Godfather inspired an entire genre, the highly acclaimed and cherished HBO series transformed the TV landscape.
The premise of The Sopranos is a simple one: A mob boss, Tony Soprano, goes to see a shrink to unload some of the mental stress he’s been feeling of late. And when he starts talking, we are hooked to the brilliant narrative: family drama, thriller, and mob action all rolled into one.
The show made the career of the late James Gandolfini, who became a household name. He was supported by an equally capable cast, including Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas) and Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie).
