The Sopranos – final edit

I thought it was worth re-posting this entry from 6 years ago… Gonna miss that big lug.


I don’t often blog about TV shows. To me, it is a bit of a waste of time editorializing about fiction – especially fiction presented on this medium.

But I don’t mind breaking this rule in the name of Uncle Tony and the gang.

Last night’s series conclusion was baffling to say the least. Yes, I know many of the true fans are pointing to the ending as appropriate in terms of not having a really conclusion with the ends nicely tied up because Tony S. was much the same piece of work… lots of loose ends.

But I can’t help but figger if we fans were taken for a bunch of saps. Here is the conclusion. You guys figure it out – and BTW – here’s the DVD with alternate endings and the full -length feature film!

Maybe I missed something on the way to the peeler joint, but one can interpret the ending as I have stated above – nuthin‘ but a set-up. Or it can be seen as a purist’s delight due to the symbolism shown in the final scene and the cut to black technique.

After some angry moments, I am coming over to the more artsy interpretation. The fans sites are busy places today and one of the posts points out the scene when Tony and Bobby are on the lake and Tony says that when you’re whacked, you never see it coming and you just cut to back.

Just like the ending.
