Besides U2, is it worth watching?
The Sopranos is that rare pop culture phenomenon that is actually better than you've heard. It's been by far the best television show on the air for the last 3 years and some may argue it's better than anything released in movie theaters this year. It can't last forever, but right now, it's not to be missed.
