    I aplogize if this has been posted here before, but the poll about the premium channels reminded me of it.

    I will give my view later after I hear one or two of yours.

    At first I thought it sucked. After some reflection and discussing it with friends I consider the final episode to be okay; but not great. The static to black screen was stupid. I have not changed my opinion of that though.

    I was looking forward to a series finale similar to Six Feet Under where all the loose ends were neatly tied up.

    I've never seen The Sopranos, but I've yet to hear anything positive about its ending.

    That's funny because I've heard people on TV and radio say they loved it and that the ending was obvious. In fact I head that Stephen King was to have said that he thought it was great.

    WOW, I am surprised, I thought you would be one of those who said how great the ending was. I'm not surprised that you did not like the show in general.

    It is widely considered the greatest drama ever on TV.

    Here is the theory on those who say it was great. There were shady characters in the diner. When the screen went to black and there was no music over the credits. (all other episodes had music) This relates to a previous conversation in the series where they say that when you get "hit" you don't see or hear it coming.

    So those who think Tony got killed by the guy who came out of the bathroom, think it was great.

    The others like me thought the cable went out. (I did just order HBO a few days earlier) I didn't like the fact that they kept it hanging.

    If there ever is a Sopranos movie (Tony will be back) then all the people who say how great the ending is will be eating their words.

    How much character development was left?

    Everybody left the stage gracefully. Another reason to appreciate a great series, as far as I'm concerned.

    Incidentally, the last episode of The Sopranos was my first. I began watching the series backwards from there with On Demand. When those ran out -- they had the whole last season up for a while -- I started renting, from the first season.

    'Was done in about two weeks!

    I normally hate television and excessive violence. :redface:

    When I taped the last episode of six feet under, I didn't realize that
    it was 10 minutes longer than normal,, so I missed the final wrap up.:mad:

    I'm equally surprised that you're able to read.

    After season 2 the entire show sucked. The final ending which they made was even worse than the Bob Newhart show ending a lot of years ago.

    You have lost your mind. THe Newhart show ending where he ends up in bed with his old wife from the previous Newhart sitcom and you find that his 2nd sitcom was a dream is the BEST EVER.

    the worst is probably Seinfeld where they end up in a mail/female jail cell.

    I disagree, Seinfeld was a GREAT show. Just the ending sucked.

    You must have missed "the competition" the episode to see who would hold out the longest without jerking off. They never even used the word masterbate.

    Tonight we finally got to see the last episode in the UK. I'd read a few negative comments about it (besides this thread) so I was prepared to be a bit disappointed.
    My only disappointment is that it's finished.I thought it was a great way to end.The show has never under-estimated the intelligence of it's audience.In the same way that Twin Peaks ended,the writer has challenged viewers to use their imagination.He's written 6 series,if you want more fill the rest in yourself...

    I thought it was brilliant. Tony was always such the open book. His ending isn't.
