tony soprano fictional character
- A few years ago, the History Channel was best known to some as a punch line on HBO¿s ¿The Sopranos.¿ Remember mobster Tony Soprano sitting alone late at night in his New Jersey McMansion eating ice cream and watching World War II documentaries about Adolph Hitler and Winston Churchill?
- It¿s not often that a sequel is better than the original, especially when the original is as dazzling as BBC America¿s miniseries ¿The Hour¿ was last year.But that¿s the case with the intoxicating mix of lust, longing, superb acting and a little bit of 1950s Brit journalism that debuts Wednesday night at 9 on BBC America.
- What happens on Showtime at 10 p.m. Sunday isn't just a case of art imitating life or scenes ripped from headlines. This is the return of a series that surgically drills into the same current of national anxiety as that generated by such real-life events as the Sept. 11 attack this year in Libya.
