I don't care what anyone says, The Sopranos was and remains the single greatest television show in the history of television.
And don't call it HBO. Or cable. Or complain that networks aren't allowed by the FCC to do this kind of thing.
The broadcast networks have proven to be penny smothering cowards of the highest order. It's why the landscape is now left to nothing but CSI spin-offs and "reality" shows making stars out of complete nobodies.
