Yeah I know .. I am late to the game. I intially ignored the show because I felt it was gimmick riding on Scrocesse movies, but I figure I give it a shot since they are making a prequel movie. I am also a sucker for gangster films since I was a kid.
So far I am 3/4 through the first season and I'll admit it is compeling. Gandalfini (RIP) is a joy to watch like any great actor like Denzel and Nicholson. The college episode was great and the episode where Tony tries to fit in with the WASP crowd was interesting. I was LOL'ing at the episode where SJW Italians were complaining about Italian protrayals in movies. Overall the episodes have been consistently good and the show is definitely a fresh take on mafia.
I take it gets better as the seasons progresses? (dont spoil anything for me btw)
just for fun...
