Gangster categorization[edit]

I believe lots of sources list Sopranos as a gangster show. Why does that cat have to be removed? Deloop82 (talk) 17:46, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

The fact that the program centered around mobsters/gangsters would appear to make it a valid candidate for inclusion of the category as a defining feature (per WP:CATDEF). @Gareth Griffith-Jones: is there a reason you continue to remove it? Your edit summaries calling the edit "stupid" and "idiotic" don't impart much explanation as to the actual reason why the category doesn't apply in this case.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 18:07, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Does it conflict with Category:American crime drama television series perhaps, being too narrow of a category to use?--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 18:12, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I believe Gangster cat should be kept because there are different types of crime dramas, for example, Godfather is a crime drama and is gangster film, meanwhile Drive (2011) is a crime drama but mot a gangster film, it just happens that the main character is a criminal. I still defend that we add Category:Gangster television series to the Sopranos. Just like CSI is a crime drama but it's not a gangster show, but a police procedural.Deloop82 (talk) 19:03, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I am dubious about this new category – in part for the reason given above by Ponyo: it is so narrow the category will remain under-populated simply because there are very few relevant programs to put in the cat. I definitely oppose adding Mob film to the genres in the infobox, as that article is only about Mob films, and there is no relevant article for gangster tv shows, which is another problem with the new cat. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 21:00, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I totally agree about the film genre addition to the infobox, it doesn't apply.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 21:06, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
