The Sopranos is easily one of the greatest television series of all time and helped to revolutionize the television landscape ever since its release in 1999.

Even though I was way too young to be watching that show while it was out, I would always find a way to watch it. And even though certain things would go over my head at times, I still knew I was watching greatness. My dad was a big fan of the show, so what I would do, I would sneak out of my room and quietly watch each episode from the hallway.

I remember one time in particular, I'm pretty sure I was in 2nd grade, and I went into school very depressed. My teacher took notice and pulled me aside to ask me how I was doing. I broke down into tears and told her how upset I was when Tony Soprano got shot. My teacher turned white and was so concerned that I was watching The Sopranos at my age!
