I was using 'goodfellas' as a generic term. I like the Scorcese film. I think there is a difference between a condenced film and a series considering character development. But the characters have to appeal to you, even the baddies or especially the baddies. Linney was terrific in her role. The characters in the Sopranos i find very tedious. I am just not interested in them. From there on it follows i actually dont care what happens. But, you might like it.This is good to see because I was thinking of starting "The Sopranos" since I've never seen one episode. I generally like the "goodfellows" type stuff.
And some scenes are very good so im not dissing it altogether but id rather have seen it as a film..
