Trivia

In the 2013 book "Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad", David Chase (a writer and Executive Producer on this show before creating The Sopranos (1999)) recalled his impatience with some of the network's strategies for marketing the show, especially NBC airing commercials featuring Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World". "If I'd had a gun, I would have killed somebody. What fucking wonderful world? Ku Klux Klan, Mississippi civil rights workers being murdered, housewives from Detroit being gunned down in their cars, black kids being lynched? They were trying to sell a series about human pain as a cute story about some cute little boy and his nanny. And it fucking made me want to puke." See more »

I'll Fly Away
19 April 2006 | by somedaysoon-3See all my reviews

This show was probably one of the best if not the best TV shows ever to be on television. It was not on the big commercial stations because they were probably too chicken to air it. But I will be always in love with the show and its characters. (Have never really cared for Sam Waterson since) but I have followed Regina Taylor constantly. What a very great talent she is in so many ways. Her soul just pours from her eyes and mouth no matter what role she plays. There may have been hypocrisy in "I'll Fly Away" as some viewers have commented, but I cannot believe that Regina Taylor lent herself to anything that wasn't great!
