The Soprano’s and political retaliation

The soprano’s can take care of itself! In a famous episode of the simpsons following president bush’s attack on the show when he said, “we need a nation closer to the waltons than the simpsons”. Matt groening and company responded by including Bush’s actual comments in the show itself and having Bart sarcastically comment that the characters of both show have one thing in common, “hey we are like the waltons. We’re praying for the depression to end”. The Sopranos have responded to its critics to, when a group of Italien Americans stated The Sopranos was unfairly representing them. The show staged on-screen debates, with characters talking about such issues in direct response. The shows producers reacted directly and abruptly, just as The Soprano’s character do so.
