"Woke Up This Morning & Got Myself a Gun!"

Oh, if only I had, then I could have shot myself & been spared watching THE SOPRANOS finale! One of the worst endings to one of the greatest TV shows ever.

From The Los Angeles Times:

The Sopranos” decided to fool millions of Americans into believing their cable had gone out for possibly the most important moment in the history of televised drama.
The final scene of the final episode of “The Sopranos” had all the elements of traditional climax down to the benign plate of onion rings Tony “ordered for the table.” As the Soprano family gathered in a diner, the light was mellow, the talk was mundane and Tony (James Gandolfini) kept one eye on the door, watching any number of possible assassins or smug federal agents as they poured sugar in their coffee or visited the men’s room (possibly to retrieve, à la “The Godfather,” their weapons cache). Then, just as Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) joined the group, and the tension became virtually unbearable — szzzz. Blank screen.
For several agonizing moments, America was united ... in uttering every profanity known to man as millions of hands reached for millions of remotes, while partners and friends yelled, “No, no, don’t touch it!”
Then, silently, the credits began to roll and somewhere Chase was, no doubt, having a pretty good laugh.

Whaaaaaat? This is funny? Christ!

It was good to see Uncle Junior, & Aida Tuturro had her usual fine moments & the Phil whacking was cool, but was it the best idea to feature the show’s least interesting character (A.J.) played by the show’s least talented actor, Robert Iler??? I mean A.J. had like what 30 minutes of screen time?
He’s joining the army, he blows up his suv, he’s taking Arabic lessons? Now he’s a film producer?? WHO CARES?????????

The dramatic posibilites of an Italian funeral! Janice wailing in the front pew, Bobby laid out in splendor surrounded by obnoxious floral tributes , all the goons paying their respects, but what do we get? Yep! Another AJ soliloquy. Christ!
I feel like a hooker who just took a bad check. Maybe Mr. Chase was making some artistic statement. As the saying goes, “I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like”…this wasn’t it!
