Default Are You a Soprano Fan?

Well, well,well Last night the Goodfella's went to the mattresses!!! What do you think?? Poor Bobby & Sylvio Who's next?

How would you like it to end?
How would you hate it to end?

I just didn't want it to end, period! Even though David Chase drove us all crazy!

PS...Dr Malfi, how could ya?

I love the show and really don't want it to end! Things are really looking grim for the goodfella's, but I guess all good things must come to an end. It is time for Camilla to get her head out of the sand

it's definetly ending with a splash.... I was hoping to see Pauly get it before Syl or Bobby

maybe they will have Carmella take out Janice

or with Carmella protecting her hubby; Not, she is the first one that needs to whack him, then his sister.... then the New York Family and she can run the show....

I guess if it has to end it is good that they all get whacked...

Love it. Also Love Big Love.

I think Pauly is part of it. You know him and the New York guy were talking and don't you think it was wierd that when they mentioned the top three - they listed Bobby instead of Pauly? Very strange.

They have this alternate story line with the kid AJ. It will have to tie in somewhere. Either he kills someone to save his father or he joins the family ala godfather rip off as the head of the family when Tony gets it.

man they just left us Hanging :evil: what a cold hearted way to end the series for the fans: so were are left speculating; that they have a nice dinner in the dinner and life goes on for the 4 of them; the FBI takes him down in the dinner; or the dinner is robbed and there is a shoot out.... ???

You know, I don't have cable. And apparently, many of us don't.

And while I'm not a Soprano's fan, I am curious what the excitement is. I mean, what happened the last episode?

So there you were -- and then it all went blank. For the rest of us, this only happens during thunderstorms. For you Soprano's fans, this is something significant.

So let the rest of us know what happened, and what it's significance is. Inquiring minds want to know...........!

after several episodes of being teased that some of the Soprano family, including Tony was going to get whacked or get nabbed by the FBI, etc the last 5 minutes of the last episode had Tony's family getting together for dinner in a little dinner famous for its onion rings.

Tony arrives first and sits in a booth facing the door, he has this sad/worried look the whole time; as he gazes around the camera teases you with views of one man in a booth facing Tony looking a little shady, possibly wearing a "DEA" hat; then another man walks in and he looks either mob connected or another agent; then Carmela shows up; the camera pans on the "bad guys" again; then AJ the son shows up; meanwhile, the daughter Meadow is trying to park her car (parallel parking is a nightmare for her and takes forever) and this music is playing and it all feels surreal); the one guy gets up walks by Tony, glances at him and then goes to the restroom behind Tony (sinister in itself)

As Meadow is parking; more people enter the dinner, who appear to be street gang members; Tony looks around some more with a worried look; Meadow runs for the dinner door; starts to open it; then Tony looks up and *POOOF* the screen goes blank; nothing, nada , zilch.

Hope that helps Dean, but I tried to make it short as possible; basically we were teased all season (sort of like CG teasing DTW).

Back when the Sopranos first aired, we had HBO and we watched the first few episodes. We didn't particularly like it, mostly because of the constant foul language, so we stopped watching it and eventually dropped our HBO subscription. That was seven years ago.

Now it's 2007, and we have HBO again thanks to a gift from family members. But we're still not watching The Sopranos ... until the other night when the finale aired.
No Sopranos for 7 years, but we couldn't resist seeing what finally happened to this disfunctional family of felons.

I wasn't impressed! Frankly, I wanted to see the whole bunch of them wasted in some manner or another. To my utter disbelief, we were left to our own imaginations as to what did (or didn't) happen in the end. They call it "artistic license", I believe. I call it BS, plain & simple ... a "copout"! The producer wanted to leave the door open, I suppose, so he gave us a non-ending and said, "Figure it out yourselves, folks!"

So much for the "smash ending". But I now conclude, we didn't miss much for those nearly seven years we didn't have HBO. And we did get to watch The Tudors in the end.

I respectfully disagree. How can you miss 7 years of a show then decide that the ending wasn't good.

That would be like me walking into the last 15 minutes of the Wizard of Oz and say, that was BS.

You couldn't have a clue about the character development.

Thanks, Martha, for filling me in.

I guess I'd be a little irritated at an ending like that. The only reason for an ending like that is to sell tickets at the box office when the big-screen version comes out.

My self, I didn't like the series finale of Frasier. There didn't seem to be closure for him the way the writers ended it. I prefer to have all the loose ends tied up neatly, and at the end, he was flying to San Francisco to begin his new life and career, and then he lands in Chicago, and poof, it's all over.

I guess that what we get for our loyalty these days.........

While surprised, I thought the ending was apropos, considering this journey we have taken with David Chase. He went to France, to not have to answer, the why's and why nots & how comes.....He felt he owes no one an explanation..envision it how you wish.....

To me, it would be like asking a famous artist..why did you paint that flower that color? He did it because he could..his story, his vision.

Thanks for the ride
