Cigar & Spirits Magazine Celebrates The Sopranos 20th

THE SHOW YOU COULDN’T REFUSE by Audrey Pavia The year was 1998. My husband and I were sitting on the couch in our Southern California townhome watching TV when a trailer came on for a new show about a New Jersey mobster who was in therapy. Obsessed with mob movies since my parents took me to see The Godfather at age 14, and impressed with the fleeting but dynamic clips I saw in that trailer, I turned to my husband and said, in no uncertain terms, “We need to watch that.” That was 20 years ago, and a couple of months later, on January 10, 1999, Tony Soprano, his fam- ily and crew came into our living room and the living rooms of viewers around the country—and subsequently left a profound impact on the entire landscape of television.
