    Oddly enough I'm only watching it properly for the first time now - I'm on the second series. Brilliant stuff and he absolutely nailed the part.

    What a legend. Can't believe he died of a heart attack whilst on holiday in Italy. Sounds like something that would have actually happened to Tony? RIP

    He, and the Sopranos, changed TV forever. Brilliant role, brilliant acting, brilliant TV

    Argh, I had to get off facebook earlier to let all the "Legend" posts get out of my feed. That in mind I've never watched an episode of the Sopranos. R.I.P

    Normally I'd agree. But I really, really, really loved the Sopranos. I'm already over it but still, what a man and what a TV show

    Really enjoyed the Sapranos, watched a lot of it while I was working abroad (Cork) and I was only thinking the other day of when to start watching it from the start again

    RIP

    Sounds a bit fishy, doesn't it? In Italy, just about to visit Sicily and suddenly he has a 'fatal heart attack'. Maybe someone in the Comorra thought The Sopranos was a documentary...

    Gutted, was brilliant in The Sopranos and felt he had another great role in him.

    I've watched it 3 times and you learn more each time.

    It's timeless and possibly the best acting I've ever seen. You honestly don't think you're watching a tv show.

    You're right, Fair City is not like watching a TV show either, for very different reasons though

    Oh, and on the eternal Sopranos v The Wire question, I'm firmly on the side of The Wire. Sopranos was still excellent though, and Gandolfini was a fine actor. Was great in In The Loop too. RIP.
