Bada Bing! Leonard Pierce and Scott Von Doviak discuss the HBO drama series The Sopranos as well as its influences like The Godfather, the movies and shows it spawned, and lesser known gems any Sopranos fan will love. If you like The Sopranos, listen up!
About the Book
Leonard Pierce has obsessed over movies, music, TV, and books since childhood, and has turned that obsession into work that has appeared on TV.com, Nerve.com, the AV Club, the Chicago Tribune, McSweeney’s, and many other places. He is a cofounder of the High Hat, an online magazine of arts and culture, and the proprietor of LudicLive.com. Follow him on Twitter.
Scott Von Doviak has been writing about film, television, and pop culture for more than a decade. He is a regular contributor to the A.V. Club, Nerve, and the For Worth Star-Telegram. He is the author of Hick Flicks: The Rise and Fall of Redneck Cinema and the forthcoming If You Like The Terminator... (June 2012, Limelight Editions). Follow him on Twitter.
The If You Like series plays the game of cultural connectivity at a high level—each book is written by an expert in their field and travels far beyond the expected, unearthing treats that will enlighten even the most jaded couch potato or pop culture vulture. Every volume tackles several genres, so If You Like the Beatles… introduces the reader not only to records, but to movies and TV shows as well, just as the Sopranos and the Monty Python editions of the If You Like series tackle jewels beyond the small screen.
