Never watched the Sopranos but I'm assuming it's still generally beyond realism.
Realism? Seriously? People who bitch about "realism" while watching TV shows, movies, wrestling, while playing video games, etc., ARE THE WORST. Those people are stuck in just one single state of mind, and that's it, I pity them.
You want "realism"? Okay, then read Balzac or Tolstoy.
