after 8.5 years it all came down to a pile of onion rings? lame as hell david chase. leaving loose ends is cool sometimes, but this deserved something better. much better. disgraziato!
The show itself was truly worth all those years of devotion. However, I felt the ending was a lame, contrived attempt at ‘high art.’ It seemed cheezy, synthetic.
I’ve heard all the various accounts and theories of how and why it was “genius.” I wasn’t hoping for a bloodbath or for a definitive answer to the mystery that was Tony Soprano. Whatever it was, I just wasn’t feelin’ it. And I knew it the second I saw it — before I listened to anyone else’s opinion.
Ultimately, though, it’s the journey that’s counts — not the destination. Endings are not that important. That’s why I don’t think the last scene mattered as much as everyone’s saying it did.
I never watch the show, but I know what’s happening via blogs and the internets. I watched the show, tonight, and could have predicted the ending. There wasn’t enough time built into the episode for a decent bloodbath.
I’m glad that I didn’t waste 9 years of my life for that show.
