STEVE THE PRODUCER


STP's BLOG 06/20/13 "Tony Soprano = Best TV Character Ever"

Another great hockey game last night, and the series is tied!  It wasn’t your typical defensive battle last night, in fact is was a pretty sloppy game, but still awesome as the Blackhawks beat the Bruins 6-5 in overtime, and now the series is tied at 2 games each! If you aren’t watching the Stanley Cup Finals on CBC, they are knocking it out with their coverage.  The best part (besides the game and Don Cherry’s suits) has been the opening montage’s that they have edited together to some great songs.  Last night was the best one so far, as they used the Foo Fighters for the music.  This was the only video I could find of it, so apologies for all the text on the screen…
 

 
Here are the other montage’s they have made for the finals…this is from game 1, with Oasis at the soundtrack:

 
I loved the one they did for game 2, with the music of The Black Keys…


 
Game 3 featured Neil Young…pretty cool, check it out:
 

 
Sad news yesterday…it’s interesting how the passing of certain celebrities will hit you harder than others, and yesterday I was really bummed to hear about James Gandolfini dying…after suffering a massive heart attack in Italy…he was only  51.  Judging by the Twitter/Facebook updates I saw yesterday his death hit others pretty hard as well.  James is best known for his role as Tony Soprano, for which he won three Emmys.  That role was iconic…one of the best TV characters of all time, if not the best. 

We came across the pop culture website UGO.com, and they made a list of the top 50 characters on TV of all time, and Tony Soprano was number 1.
Here is the top 10 (some are VERY debatable…Willow?  C’mon!):

1. Tony Soprano (The Sopranos)
 
2. Vic Mackey (The Sheild)
 
3. William Adama (BattleStar Galactica)
 
4. Willow Rosenberg (Buffy)
 
5. Lennie Briscoe (Law & Order)
 
6. Sylar (Heroes)
 
7. Tracy Jordan (30 Rock)
 
8. Kermit the Frog (The Muppet Show)
 
9. Bender (Futurama)
 
10. Horatio Caine (CSI: Miami)
 
Get the full list here:  www.ugo.com/tv/best-tv-characters-of-all-time
So this led to us taking calls and texts about the best TV characters…here are some of the texts we got:

Homer Simpson "Beer, the solution to and cause of all of life's little problems." The Beer Monkey
