He was also on The Sopranos. Played the guy who owned the sporting goods store Tony busted out. 

Yeah I remember that.  Lost his store (and an SUV) to Tony due to way too many boxes of ziti.

Yep. Tony gave the SUV to Meadow. It was actually the SUV Scatino gave to his son, who was a classmate of Meadow’s. When Meadow found out where it came from, she was pissed. 🤣

In fairness, Meadow was always pissed.

For TV shows, lots of great ones mentioned throughout the thread but I will add 4 "non-mainstream" shows I've enjoyed that I haven't seen mentioned:

Nathan for You - docu-reality "prank" series. Prank is in quotes because most of the time the butt of the joke is the host. Much of it is very cringe-inducing comedy so you have to like that but I have never laughed harder at a TV show than this one. The finale is a two hour episode that might be one of the best two hours of TV I have ever seen.

DARK - Netflix Sci-fi show. One of the best time-travel paradox stories I've ever seen. In addition to the sci-fi aspect there is real character/family dynamics. Season 1 is imo on par with the best of Breaking Bad or Sopranos. Very rare to have a sci-fi show where the entire plot is planned and buttoned up in 3 seasons. The catch is it's german-language which will put a lot of ppl off but the subtitles are so worth it, better than the english dub.

Detectorists- British comedy by Mackenzie Crook (the Jim character from the original office) about the metal detecting hobby. Can't think of a better light-hearted, feel-good, relaxing show for the stress of quarantine. Very easy to binge, but you have to like british humor.

Ramy- Comedy/drama written by and starring a guy who grew up in Rutherford area (it's set in NJ) about his experience as a muslim. I'm a catholic school kid around the same age and I find it really interesting. I haven't started season 2 yet but I think it's gotten good reviews...

Dark was fantastic. And subtitles should never be a reason for someone to not try something new. You’re are missing out on a whole world full of great movies and shows if you limit yourself to just your own language. I loved Bong Joon-Ho’s comments about that when he won the Oscar for Parasite.

Oh agreed, I just know some people who when presented with a choice between a so-so english show and and great foreign language show would choose the former. But I was able to get my parents (whose typical fare is more the Downton Abbey crowd) into Dark so that should tell you that anyone can do it!

I've only watched a few episodes of Dark but I've been enjoying it so far. When I originally tried watching foreign films and shows I tried the English dubs but the words not syncing up annoyed me too much so I switched to subtitles. It does take a little bit to get use to at first. 

Yeah for Dark I really appreciated the subtitles because it forced me to focus on the show and it's a show that needs a lot of attention, there's so many details you can miss. Plus the german actors are just amazing in that and the dub does them a disservice.
