Sopranos ending

This ridiculous ending (nothing) just shows how much contempt the producers of the Sopranos have for the audience.

Mark Wayne and I thought of a dozen cool scenarios for the ending. But one thing we didn't think of is that the show would snuff itself out like a wet sparkler.

Is this genius as SFGate seems to think? After all, NO ONE suspected it! So, good or bad, if you can do something no one suspects, then the elites think you are fabulous. The problem is that surprise is the only thing this ending had going for it. Surprise in place of a storyline.

In a way it is emblematic of how empty of story the storytellers really are in Hollywood today. Look at all the remakes. They are all so consumed with and terrified of political correctness and their own view of the world that they are actually afraid to tell a freaking story. Welcome to 2007. The Sopranos is a perfect reflection of the emptiness of the artists.

I never watched one episode. Not because I was making a statement. It just never happened.

I'm no fun.
