It’s amazing how quickly groundbreaking becomes conventional. That’s certainly true of TV’s love affair with anti-heroes and morally ambiguous characters. Once upon a time, they were seldom seen. In the nine years since HBO’s “The Sopranos” premiered, these rough-edged characters have become the norm.
