He is prone to bouts of depression and the first episode finds him beginning therapy with psychiatrist Dr Melfi (Lorraine Bracco). He has a strained relationship with his wife Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco) and their two children, Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) and Anthony Jr (Robert Iler). His Mafia associates include his cousin and protege Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli). Created by David Chase, it went on to win 21 Emmy awards and numerous other gongs during its six-season run. "The Sopranos" can be seen on Sky Atlantic.
