Top 20 Television Characters of the Past 10 Years

#1) Tony Soprano (Portrayed by James Gandolfini):

Makes sense that the best character on this list comes from the best television series ever, The Sopranos. If this pick came as a surprise to you, you're dumb. Tony Soprano is the only character to appear in every single episode of The Sopranos. Juggling all of the members of his crew, all of the enemies that pop up every season, and the wire tappers in the FBI, Tony Soprano has a tough life. It's no wonder that he suffers panic attacks every so often. Here's the difficulty with this final post on this list: if you've never seen The Sopranos, how do I convince you that he is the best character of the past 10 years (and probably ever)? 1] He curb stomps someones face. 2] He murders a former mobster turned rat in Waterville, Me. 3] He bangs strippers and Russian whores and one legged women, among many others. 4] He murders one of his best friends while having the shits from bad Indian food. 5] He shoots a certain someone in the face with a shotgun. These are just 5 instances out of 100s that I could mention, but it's not worth spoiling things for people who haven't seen this incredible series. You could write 20 page papers on how great his therapy sessions are with Dr. Jennifer Melfi (my PSN handle). You could write 50 page papers about the epicness of his arguments with his cunt wife Carmela. I'm on my 4th time through watching the entire series right now, and every time I click play I still become excited enough to have to change my underwear. Let's just say I've gone through a lot of pairs since Tony first graced the credits of The Sopranos, driving home into New Jersey, puffing on that huge cigar for the first time.
