If you haven’t quite gotten the last episode of The Sopranos out of your head (clearly, I haven’t) … if you’re still mulling over what happened during those closing moments, then you may want to peruse a TV writer’s intriguing and informed take on whether Tony got whacked in the last episode. There’s a lot of good analysis and interpretation here. For an alternative view, you can also listen to this week’s podcast from TV Talk Machine. Here, Tim Goodman, who writes for The San Francisco Chronicle, and Joe Garofoli mull over which interpretations hold water, and which don’t. Plus, you can also read Goodman’s blog entry — “Sopranos” finale: What really happened” — and the many reader comments, reactions and theories at the bottom of the page.Now, with this chapter of television history closed, HBO is hoping to start another new and important one with John From Cincinnati. If you don’t have cable, you can watch the first episode here in its entirety. Good thinking HBO. Have they found another Sopranos? I’m not too optimistic. Have a look and see what you think.
JFC is brilliant once one gives it a chance. It really is a show w/o a genre and therefore is difficult unless one goes into it with an open mind.
