I thought the ending was a massive cop-out. I was disappointed that it went out with a fizzle.<br><br>Still, loved the series. Can't throw out the baby with the bathwater.<br><br>[color:red]max</font color=red>
i heard the ending described as lazy elsewhere. <br><br>some day i plan to watch all of the seasons, but finding 82 hours to do so is going to be a problem (and $$$). i hear very good things about the series, but 82 hours . . . wow.<br><br>
WOW.... it had me on the edge of my seat...<br><br>...the suspense as Meadow kept banging the curb...<br>I kept thinking "would it spell either her doom, ...or her salvation?"<br>kept wanting to yell to "T" to "lift your eyes & scan the people coming going!!!"<br><br><br>Lea was right.... no ending could have been better than whatever you were anticipating...<br><br><br>...what was going to happen NEXT...<br><br>(My mind was racing over bizarre scenarios;<br>such as them all dead with mouthfuls of onion rings )<br><br>PERFECTION<br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>

I was unsatisfied with the ending and thought the final episode was rather wimpy. I wanted more work on finding Phil. Too much time spent in the therepist for a last show. I know they have used this all during the run to let us know what Tony was thinking but sometimes I feel they used it as cop out. Much like they show headlines in newspapers or even a narriator to fill in the viewer the details. <br><br>The best part was the thing with Meadow having trouble parking thinking it was going to save her but then a cop out. <br><br>It just was to quick a jump from having two families at war with each other to having 'peace'. But they have done these 150's (not quite 180 turns) all through the series.<br><br>dave<br><br><br><br>

Obviously they couldn't kill off Tony if a movie was even a thought.<br><br>One of three things to explain the series finale last night:<br><br>#1:<br>It went black just as Tony was shot dead in front of his family. We were witnessing the last moments of his life. Meadow was saved by her lack of parking skills<br><br>#2<br>They gave all the classic hints toward "Next on Sopranos" - in other words, the guy that came in and got up from the counter to go into the restroom IS the hitman, Meadow coming in late allows her to see the guy draw the gun and warn dad... this is just the start of the movie. Paulie gets fed-up with Tony's B.S. and ends up doing something about it.<br><br>#3<br>Our loyalty to HBO and the Sopranos was raped when we were catered to the absolute worst season or series final in television history.<br><br>CreativeGuy for daily tips, tricks and commentary on all things graphic design.

Salon.com agrees with you, Lea:<br><br>[color:blue]For his final trick, "Sopranos" writer/creator David Chase made Tony Soprano disappear without fanfare. In what may go down as the most heart-stopping final scene of a drama series in the history of television, Tony walked into a restaurant, sat down at a booth, ate a few onion rings, and . . . that was it. Roll credits.<br><br>As the screen went black in the middle of a line from the song "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey, it was hard not to wonder, Is Chase brilliant for so thoroughly subverting our expectations, or... is he just an [censored]?</font color=blue><br><br>
