    Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Tuesday night

    The Sopranos 8 p.m., HBO Signature

    Which of the great TV dramas will hold up over the years? I’m thinking “The Sopranos” definitely will. Every time I stumble across an episode of the show, which HBO is in the process of reairing, I’m impressed all over again, especially when it comes to the first three seasons. The acting is so raw, particularly by James Gandolfini (pictured), Michael Imperioli, and Edie Falco. Tuesday’s episode is the first-season finale, with Carmela confronting Father Phil (played by Falco’s “Nurse Jackie” costar Paul Schulze) and Tony confronting his mother about trying to have him killed. Livia’s smiling response is priceless.

    The Life of Muhammad 8 p.m., Channel 2

It reaches from his birth in Mecca in 570 A.D. to his death and his legacy, and it was filmed on location in Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Jerusalem, the United States, and Britain. Journalist Rageh Omaar (pictured) is the host.
