He pretty much headlined one of the most important tv shows to ever exist. The Sopranos completely changed the landscape of how we do TV and how we even started to look at cable tv. And honestly because of that so many of your favorites are able to exist. Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, list goes on. The Sopranos was so important to that movement. It’s so crazy because I was thinking about finding the whole series and marathoning it a couple weeks ago. I saw various eps when I was younger but never straight through. Plus the final scene of the show is pretty legendary. Years later and people still fret over it. I just read a great analysis on it.
This is such a shame though. 51 years too young and a 8 month old and 14 yr old left without a father. RIP.
