I never read the book, but I loved the movie. I don't have Hulu so I won't watch this series. I'm currently doing a re-watch of the Sopranos. Just finished the first two seasons. It's the first time I've done it since the episodes aired originally. It's strange how 20 years later it more than holds up. As I've gotten older I appreciate different things about it than I did when I was younger. I now really enjoy Carmella's story lines (and especially her acting) and Dr. Melfi whereas 20 years ago I mostly cared about the mob stuff.
