First Post

I watch a fair bit of TV. By that, I don't mean I'm one of those people who can't exist without it on - I can go days without watching it - but a quality bit of drama is something I love.

I also have a soft spot for Gangster Movies. When I say 'Gangster Movies', I'm not talking about British gangster movies, which - and let's be honest here - basically consist of two blokes called Terry going 'You Slag!' and 'You Mug!' at each other.

Here is a classic example of said genre

No, I'm talking about proper Gangster Movies. American Gangster Movies.

I really like them. I'm not one of these people whose obsessed with the Mafia, but there's a certain something about 'em - a kind of mixture of the glamourous and the scuzzy that appeals to me.

So, it would make sense that I'd be a REALLY big Sopranos fan, right?

Erm, not entirely.

Whenever I'd hear mention of The Sopranos - like, from the day it first hit Britain (about 2000-ish, I think) - I'd say "I've never seen it, but I bet I'd really like it".

Then, the Sopranos came to an end, and I'd see the DVD box set in shops, and I'd be "I've never seen it, but I bet I'd really like it".

It became a bit of a joke I'd have with myself.

But! I'm joking no more.

I'm going to watch every episode of The Sopranos.

I'm going to write about them - what I think of them, how I react to them, what they remind me of, and basically anything else which seems pertinent to the show.

I hope you enjoy reading this. I hope I enjoy doing it!
