This week on Thompson’s Top Five I paid tribute to the late James Gandolfini by counting down the top five Sopranos moments.
There is an intimacy to The Sopranos and specifically the character of Tony that is unsettling. His world has a tendency to get under your skin – all the goomahs, cannolis and best laid plans of a barrel-chested waste management consultant from Jersey. The poetic, bloody and messy struggle of one man trying to make it in America.
If you have ever caught yourself doing the Paulie Walnuts laugh when you’re on your own you are just like me – you are someone who has had their world permanently altered by The Sopranos.
Don’t stop …… believing.
