Oral History of The Sopranos

I've just been going through the first series again, it is still a very classy soap opera, the occasionally glamourous but ultimately shitty gangster life and the odd beauty of gritty New Jersey. They just ain't orca fat enough to be real paisanos.

TERENCE WINTER (writer, executive producer): One F.B.I. agent told us early on that on Monday morning they would get to the F.B.I. office and all the agents would talk about The Sopranos. Then they would listen to the wiretaps from that weekend, and it was all Mob guys talking about The Sopranos, having the same conversation about the show, but always from the flip side. We would hear back that real wiseguys used to think that we had somebody on the inside. They couldn't believe how accurate the show was.
Gedthefuckoutadhere is all I can say.
There's a real mob family they are based on. Can't be arrsed to search it, but it's on wikipedia. New Jersey is the ass of America. Where kike meets dago. Enough said.
