Honestly, I'd get overly involved in The Sopranos and after that series finale I kind of glad I didn't....but I've really gotten into this new HBO series called Boardwalk Empire. If you haven't watched it yet, do! It is fantastic. Steve Buscemi plays the lead and really brings it to life...it doesn't hurt to have Martin Scorsese involved either!! Again, having not watched The Sopranos I may not be the best judge, but I've heard reviews saying that Boardwalk Empire is actually better. Given that its on the "premium" HBO channels they can get away with a lot more and I kind of like that they're making and airing their own series'. Its still in the first season so its not too late to get on board (no pun intended) but I think you'll like it if you're not already following it!
