'The Sopranos' Rewind: Season 1, Episode 9: 'Boca'

29 July 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the ninth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the ninth episode, “Boca," coming up just as soon as you lie like I play the French horn... "I didn't hurt nobody." -Tony In the grand scheme of "Sopranos" season 1, the most important part of "Boca" takes place on a Jersey golf course, where Uncle Junior and Tony »

Welcome to the eighth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the eighth episode, “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti," coming up just as soon as I devote my energies to the dignity of Connie Francis... "Where's my arc?" -Christopher And here we come to the meta — before it was even 100% meta. "The Sopranos" quickly became a hit for HBO »

3 April 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Motivated by personal tragedy, former Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco turned her life around with diet and exercise. In her new self-help book, To the Fullest: The Clean Up Your Act Plan to Lose Weight, Rejuvenate and Be the Best You Can Be, Bracco, 60, recalls how James Gandolfini's untimely death from a heart attack in 2013 was a wake-up call. The death of her parents, too, weighed heavily on the actress; in 2011, they died within nine days of each other. (Bracco, who played Dr. Jennifer Melfi on The Sopranos, writes in To the Fullest that Dominic Chianese, who played Uncle Junior in the HBO mob drama, »

Edward Herrmann: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About the Master Character Actor

31 December 2014 4:19 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edward Herrmann was a master of character, one of those actors who could be counted on to deliver no matter what else was happening on the screen or stage.

Herrmann, who died Wednesday at the age of 71, was famously adept at playing historical figures, from Franklin Delano Roosevelt (many times, most recently as the voiceover in Ken Burns’ “The Rooosevelts: An Intimate History”) to Lou Gehrig, William Randolph Hearst (in Peter Bogdanovich’s “The Cat’s Meow”), Raymond Massey (in biopic “James Dean”), Joseph Breen (enforcer of Hollywood’s Production code from the 1930s-50s), Nelson Rockefeller, Alger Hiss, Fred Friendly and George Bernard Shaw.

Herrmann also had a face that was born to play priests, cops, dads and nondescript world leaders. Reviewing the 1999 NBC miniseries “Atomic Train,” Variety declared that Herrmann’s turn as the U.S. commander-in-chief was just about the only redeeming quality of the limp thriller »
