i heart TV.

which is one of the reasons, i'm terribly sad about the passing of James Gandolfini, or as most of us will always remember him, Tony Soprano.

Tony was one of the most complex characters ever created and James Gandolfini was a brilliant actor that nailed it every epi. {right down to the magnetic twinkle in Tony's eye}

the new york times did a great tribute just hours ago . . . read it here.

I don't like watching violence, but I do appreciate excellent writing and unfortch, some of the most well-written programs are dark, and can be downright haunting.  and most feature a protagonist we love to hate and hate to love.

here are my top 5 tortured souls.

1. tony soprano {rest in peace}

2. don draper

3. nicholas brody

4. walter white

5. nate fisher

yikes, that was heavy. . . 

and since this is a happy blog - here are my top 5 that make me smile.

1. jim halpert. OBVS. {and every other office character}

2. phil dunphy

3. doug heffernan

4. alex p. keaton

5. kevin arnold - yes, he was sort of annoying at times, but the nostalgia factor is huge here. 


and of course i love many other shows, and it's not just dudes that are great actors in great roles . . .

obvs worship my sex in the city gals.  fave scene ever?

you know the one i'm talking about.  when big is "late" to meet the girls.  and then shows up.  it takes my breath away.  every. time. . .  still.  such a sucker.

and i think you might know what my favorite show of all time is. . . yup,  i know you've heard it before. . . friday night lights.  but i seriously WORSHIP.  and it boggles my mind that people haven't seen it.  buy the box set here!  it's pretty much the best gift you can every give yourself.  and if you haven't seen it yet-  stop reading this post.


best show ever.  best scene ever.  best line ever.  period.

but one last shout out to james gandolfini and thoughts & prayers to all of those feeling the depths of his loss . . .

we'll never "forget about it!"
