Who’s the brattier Soprano kid: Meadow or A.J.?

“The Sopranos” is a crime comedy-drama that essentially made T.V. cool. The plot is just as much about protagonist Tony Soprano’s (James Gandolfini) real family as it is about his mafia one, which includes two of the brattiest children of all time. There’s Tony’s eldest, Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), who manages to be smug and manipulative at the same time. Then there’s his son, A.J. (Robert Iler), whose shallow nihilism translates into whininess. Who was brattier?

The eldest of the Soprano brood, Meadow's facial expressions rival only those of Carmela’s. Every time that tiny little smirk curls up her mouth, you want to slap it right off her face. She has her parents wrapped around her overly tanned finger, and she takes advantage of it at every turn.

And that voice—that voice. Its already-high tinny reaches a volume level that only dogs can hear every time she doesn’t get her way, which is never,  by the way, even when she’s quote-on-quote “grounded.” She accomplishes this by making everything out to be someone else’s fault, even when she had a party at her grandmother’s house that got busted. She was just stressed about college applications, okay, guys?

The worst part about Meadow Soprano? She’s smart. She uses her wits to bamboozle her parents into submission, wiggling out of any tight spot she (usually) puts herself in. Meadow never receives any real punishment and, most annoyingly, she gets everything she wants in the end. Her character growth is almost as unsatisfying as “The Sopranos" series finale.

A.J. Oh, A.J. As Tyra Banks once screamed at “America’s Next Top Model” contestant, Tiffany, “We were rooting for you, we were all rooting for you!” A.J. Soprano had such promise: his football career was taking off; he's mellow where his father is temperamental; and he lacks the know-it-all sneer he sister possesses. What happened?

The answer to that is Tony and Carmela. Just like Meadow, A.J.’s abhorrent personality may be attributed to his parents’ poor childrearing skills. It’s amazing how Tony Soprano, ruthless mafioso and gumar aficionadoextraordinaire, crumbles like a burnt cannoli wherever his kids are concerned.

When it comes to putting self-destructive mistakes on others, A.J. has Meadow beat. Not only does he like to dodge his parents’ concerns with crying fits about how unfair the world is to him, he actually excuses blowing up his car by saying it was a stand against the U.S.’s dependency on foreign oil. It’s self-righteous, self-serving, and bratty all in one go. Top that off with a sad excuse for facial hair, and you have a little boy that’s as tiny as his beady blue eyes.
