I only recently joined this forum and this is actually my first post. I just finished watching the Sopranos last November and it was quite possibly the greatest piece of cinematic artwork I had ever seen. I was a bit young to experience the Sopranos when it originally aired but I'm glad I eventually did watch through. When I heard the news about the death of James Gandolfini I felt saddened and I thought this was odd. I am not the type to care about or concern myself with actors and actresses in Hollywood and their personal lives and for this reason i felt a little strange caring about this mans death. James was able to perfectly capture the character of Tony Soprano and in a weird way the character, and what James appeared to be in real life, reminded me of my father. Tough on the outside with an angry demeanor but a soft and gentle man on the inside. I will definitely be rewatching the Sopranos in the very near future to relive the fantastic acting of Gandolfini and the character he portrayed that I grew to love.
