During this remarkably stressful time, TV is one of the I Tackled 100 Days Of School Football shirt in other words I will buy this few bastions of comfort and predictability we have left; when I pull up my Netflix browser and hit play on The Great British Baking Show, I know I’m going to go to bed soothed (if struck with an inferiority complex about my baking skills). Similarly, when I delve back into my marathon Sopranos rewatch, I know I’ll emerge from it (1) in awe of James Gandolfini’s acting range and (2) desperately craving an Adriana La Cerva–style beaded tennis outfit. Luckily, my New Jersey mob-wife-outfit coveting just got a whole lot easier with HBO’s announcement that The Sopranos, Veep, Six Feet Under, and a host of its other classic shows would be available to watch for free on HBO Now and HBO Go beginning April 3.
Passionate HBO scholar that I am, I’ve taken it upon myself to rank the I Tackled 100 Days Of School Football shirt in other words I will buy this network’s now free shows in order of how quickly it is incumbent upon you to watch them. The Sopranos: Every day that you don’t familiarize yourself with the goings-on of Tony, Silvio, Paulie, and the gang is a day wasted. Is it dark and, at times, horrifying? Absolutely, but it’s also one of the funniest shows of all time. (Reddit agrees.) Veep: If you want to laugh at a political reality that’s only slightly more bizarre than our current one, this is the uproariously, stomach-cramp-inducingly funny show for you. Succession: Channel your anger at the people currently fleeing New York into love-hating these other selfish rich people who are mired in New York instead.
