Currently watching season 1 of this and loving it!

It's very similar to The Soprano's although I think there's more sex in it. I personally prefer this to The Soprano's although that was good as well.

The characters are great and Martin Scorcese is brilliant in the lead role. For me, this series has the more, more, more!! factor that makes you want to keep going with it.

It is a great show!

The show runs on a lot more 'story arcs' than the Sopranos (and the Sopranos had their share), and the way they 'weave' all those arcs together throughout the season leaves you itching for the next episode.

The characters are often very complex, one in particular will be introduced in the first season (he becomes a regular) stands out as one of the most interesting tv characters there has ever been (played by a Brit ... again with the Brits in american shows ).

I'm a little sceptical about the sex scenes. I don't find them all that necessary and suspect they're included as a kind of 'lure'. Mind you, I think the bulk of them surround one particular character in the first season (yes, that could have been phrased more delicately) and thankfully, her 'arcs' (chortle!) are given less air time in later seasons.
