Best mob/gangster show ever
The Sopranos is one of the best TV-shows I have ever seen. If you like gangster/mobster/mafia movies, I can strongly recommend "The Sopranos". The show is mainly about Anthony "Tony" Soprano and his life as a father, husband and leader of a mob in the 21st century. The show is (as far as I know) realistic, compared to many other mafia shows and movies I have seen. The actors fit like a glove to their parts. This show made me realize how good many of these actors are in other shows and movies. This show has it all; humor, action, drama, good music, good actors, good "behind the camera" people and a good plot. The show displays all sides of the mob business; "buisness", private life, the cops/FBI point of view, the victims side of the story and much more.

Trivia

The character of Hesh, the Jewish gangster (Jerry Adler) who is a trusted associate of Tony Soprano, is said to have been based on Morris Levy, the founder of Roulette Records, and one-time owner of the famous "Birdland" nightclub in New York City. Levy had a long reputation as being a close associate of several high-ranking New York City Mafia figures, and had no compunction about using his ties with them to keep recalcitrant and/or ambitious Roulette artists in line or to steal artists from other labels. One story has it that when singer Jackie Wilson, at the time under contract to Roulette, tried to break his contract in order to take a more lucrative one offered him by Brunswick Records, Levy knocked him unconscious. When Wilson regained consciousness, Levy dragged him to the window of his tenth-floor office and hung him out of the window by his heels until he agreed to pay Levy several times more than his contract was worth, in order to gain his release (and to also not be dropped ten stories to his death).


Quotes

Corrado Erico 'Uncle Junior' Soprano: We go way back to when Moses wore short pants.


Goofs

In the beginning of the series Junior says running away from the authorities right before they're about to be arrested is undignified and embarrassing. However throughout the series we see several mafia running away.


Alternate Versions

In January 2007, US network A&E began airing the edited-for-syndication reruns of the show. Scenes featuring nudity, sexual activity and violence were replaced with alternate versions or were excised completely. The profanity was dubbed over.
