‘The Sopranos’ Series Finale Almost Had a Much Different Ending

The Sopranos marks its 20th anniversary this week, and everyone is still talking about the series finale, some 12 years after it aired. Love it or hate it, the Sopranos finale was unforgettable, particularly for its now-infamous final scene in which (spoilers) the screen cut to black, and held there, leaving the fate of Tony Soprano ambiguous, and spouting many theories in the process. But according to creator David Chase, the series could’ve had a much different final scene – one that would’ve...

‘Sopranos’ Prequel Movie Will Feature a Young Tony Soprano

The Sopranos creator David Chase has answered a very pressing question regarding his Sopranos prequel movie, The Many Saints of Newark: will we see Tony Soprano in the film? The answer – yes. Since the film is set in the 1960s, it enables Chase and company to skirt around the tragic fact that James Gandolfini, who so famously played Tony, died in 2013. As a result, the Tony we see in The Many Saints of Newark will be around 8-years-old. I still quite haven’t gotten used to the idea of a Sopr...

Thank Tony Soprano and Omar Little for today's bingeworthy TV

The roots of the current Golden Age of Television run deep, but its seeds can be traced to a pair of HBO dramas that left their mark in the 2000s, for shared reasons as well as two very different ones: "The Sopranos," because the series turned into an enormous mass-appeal hit; and "The Wire," because it never did.

‘Smallfoot’ Trailer: Channing Tatum is a Yeti Who Falls Down a Lot

Hello, everyone. I’d like to introduce you to the family film Smallfoot. It’s about a Yeti who goes on a quest to discover if humans really exist. Sounds cute, right? Also, it stars Channing Tatum.

‘Breaking Bad’ Was the Last Great Antihero TV Show

Breaking Bad, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this week, was far from the first TV drama focusing on an antihero. Bland chemistry teacher-turned-meth chef and eventual kingpin Walter White followed in the footsteps of mobster Tony Soprano, bad cop Vic Mackey, enigmatic ad man Don Draper, and other dark leading characters of television in the 2000s. What makes Breaking Bad so remarkable to consider now, after a decade, is twofold: it’s arguably the best of the antihero dramas and marked th...
