The Sopranos

I just watched the final episode of The Sopranos last night, ending a months long voyage from Episode 1 to the end. While I don't want to put a spoiler in my blog, all I can say is...

Wow! or WTF?! I know I'm over a year late in expressing this relative to the rest of America that watched this in real-time, but I can't decide how to react. It was either the perfect ending or a severe let-down. I vacillate on my verdict every time I think about it. Either way, I'm going to miss The Sopranos. I probably won't miss having to hurriedly dim the screen on airplanes around the world as images of Bada-Bing came up on my screen, but I'll miss everything else. I love those characters even though we're not supposed to. They were people you could identify with even though their profession is one we are taught not to mirror. Amazing how their lives mirrored ours.

I'm moving on to Lost, which I also haven't watched. It might now be clear to the readers that I tend to miss shows in their first run. Gosh, I love the digital media era ;-)
