I’ll have to say I was really looking forward to the Sopranos finale, but now that it’s over I am really feeling like I invested a pretty significant chunk of my life in something with very little payoff. The cut to black and no music while the credits ran was just ridiculous. Phil getting his melon rolled over was good, but I think you have to deliver a bit more than that in a serues finale.
Is it just me or did the finale seem pretty disconnected from just about everything that was great about the series in the beginning ? It all just seemed completely anti-climactic. I’d say that it was probably my least favorite episode of the entire series. There are so many ways they could have made it more interesting – like someone on the inside betraying Tony and aiding Phil’s guys in attempting a whack on Tony. Something.. anything!! I walked away from the TV just a wee bit sour.
Unless this ending is leaving the door open for a movie, this was a pretty sadistic ending for those of us who followed this series for so long.
