Sopranos is my favorite after MV. Mainly the first four seasons. Didn't really care for the last two seasons apart from Steve Buscemi.:p

Mad Men is right there with Miami Vice and The Sopranos for my personal favorites! Just a magnificent drama. Captures the style and music of the era just like MV did for the 80s. Also, it has a great cast. :thumbsup:

Besides going through MV again, I'm currently starting AMC's Mad Men. I had never watched it before...watched a couple episodes on Netflix and really liked it! :thumbsup: So, I got seasons 1&2 pretty cheap on eBay. I'll get the other seasons as I need them. Anyone else watched it...thoughts? It's not a cop/crime show. ;)

Believe it or not...I've never seen The Sopranos.  :o Maybe after MV and Mad Men. ;) But just FYI...from what I've gathered so far from special feature interviews on a Mad Men DVD set, a lot of the people who wrote/produced/worked on The Sopranos also worked on Mad Men--including Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner! Just found that interesting since several here have mentioned both shows recently. :cool:

I feel the same way and I am a huge fan of the show. I thought the first five were some of TV's finest since Michael Mann made his mark with Miami Vice and Crime Story but both parts of Season Six were mostly a bore especially whiny AJ from the second half the season. From what I heard it's probably because the creator David Chase was strongly considering ending the series at Season Four but HBO kept pressing him for more seasons. Buscemi was great in Season Five and he also directed one of the series most acclaimed episodes, "Pine Barrens".

It's a pretty addictive show. If you've seen Goodfellas it's a bit similar to that in tone especially the dark humor but has a deeper, more psychological approach to the traditional mob story. It also shares one thing with Vice in that it's very evocative of the era it was filmed in. The mob guys in it were very chatty about the world's many changes during the late-nineties/early 2000's and makes for an interesting return after living through that era.

Just started watching Starsky & Hutch, the second coolest cop show of all time. Also started rewatching The Soprano's. Just finished Burn Notice, and I thought, since it's winter I shouldn't really be watching my summer shows.
