The Sopranos has rewritten the rules of television drama and changed attitudes toward television itself. Topics explored include the extraordinary characterization of Tony Soprano; racism; dreams; Dr. Melfi as narratee; Carmela as a feminist; Italian-American womanhood; mafia theatrics; use and abuse of family values and feudal codes; the HBO brand; food's role on the show; and more.
