In a nutshell: James Gandolfini gave one of the greatest performances in one of the greatest roles in one of the greatest series at the dawn of what is now regarded as television's new golden age.
In fact, you could probably remove those qualifying “one of"s and still find heads nodding in agreement among critics, viewers and whatever poor thugs are left hanging around the Bada Bing club, nursing their beers and watching the dancers.
Gandolfini, who died at age 51 in Rome on Wednesday, was known throughout the world for his six seasons on The Sopranos (1999-2007), the classic HBO drama about a mob boss living in suburban New Jersey with his wife, two kids and some occasional, possibly symbolic ducks in the backyard.
Mobster and "waste management" executive Tony Soprano, as brilliantly conceived by series creator David Chase, was perhaps meant to put the kibosh on the romanticized Corleones of The Godfather, ruthless killers who nonetheless had the smooth beauty of movie stars, eyes full of regret and an air of tragic inevitability.

The characters on Breaking Bad usually give Albuquerque, N.M., nothing but trouble.
That's changing now that producers are donating clothing from the AMC show to an emergency shelter there – giving Breaking Bad's meth-selling crooks a chance to be good guys for a change.
"We got a call from someone from Breaking Bad saying, 'Hey, we're dropping off some clothes.' Then, here they were," Jeremy Reynalds, CEO of the Joy Junction shelter, tells the AP.

She's got a powerful voice – and one powerful kick, apparently.
On Monday night's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Aussie comedy star Rebel Wilson proved she could belt out a tune and be her own rhythm section all at the same time.
The Pitch Perfect actress joked with Leno in the interview about how she got the role of Fat Amy in the comedy about an all-girls a cappella group.
"It's a comedy, but you also have to sing in it," Wilson said. "And they're like, 'Well, she kind of looks like Adele – but can she sing?' "

It's straight out of an episode of Breaking Bad – right down to the name.
A man accused of violating his probation in a methamphetamine manufacturing case in Tuscaloosa, Ala., is drawing attention for more than his crime.
Since 2010, Walter Eddy White has been on probation after being arrested in 2008 on charges of trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of precursor materials, Al.com reports.
But White shares a name with a more popular methamphetamine cook – Breaking Bad's main character, Walter White.
