My two cents

Well, I, for one, LOVED the Sopranos ending. I hated the thought of having doors closed. David Chase left them all wide open.

Amazing to me that so many people are upset about it. What did they want, more blood? It's like the Roman games. Thumbs down. The way we seem to want everything, black and white. Iraq bad, America good. Kill the bad guy.

Ed Cone:
"The Sopranos" experience reassures me that smart, long-form narrative fiction, a hallmark of Western culture since Homer didn't write "The Odyssey," is not going away.

Somehow it seems oddly appropriate, or totally incongruous, that the farewell party featuring many of the cast was held last night at the Seminole Hard Rock casino near Hollywood, Florida.....

(Because lots of people have lots to say about this, more in next posting.....)


  • I do agree - the ending was about as perfect as it gets - a candle snuffed out. John from Cincinnati - I've watched the first two episodes and I'm hooked. Surf's up, dude, and life goes on without Tony S.
