Talking about what I'm reading and watching on TV.

Sad day in entertainment news

Two deaths this week devastated the entertainment field, as actor James Gandolfini died at 51 of a heart attack and novelist Vince Flynn died at 47 after battling prostate cancer.

Gandolfini changed the entire way TV was perceived and produced, making character Tony Soprano truly must-watch television and "The Sopranos" a show that altered the landscape.

Flynn and his self-published start helped inspire writers and kick off his series of thrillers, which quickly developed into the Mitch Rapp series as terrorists were battled by the CIA operative.

Both will be missed and I will share more thoughts here later.
