Tv Season Info
If The Godfather: Part II offers a revisionist take on the 1950s American Dream, then The Sopranos is our elegy to that long-gone era of postwar affluence.
Each of the final episodes was anticipated not so much with pleasure as dread, since each posed the risk of an unacceptable loss, as characters in whom we had invested years of attention were swept away.
Audience Reviews for The Sopranos: Season 6, Part II
The end is near, right from the start (and startling) first episode with the characters we've grown to love and hate to thread on their darkest paths until the inveitable clash. This is the darkest season yet and whilst most storylines are concluded, I felt some characters deserved something more. Some stories definitely didn't end properly (come on, do you really want to see the last of Silvio in a hospital bed without saying anything?) and some episodes didn't add much we didn't knew before. Also, it takes some major balls to end the show that way. Really well done, even if I felt that the ending wasn't ambiguous as it was supposed to. Some hints on previous episodes left it pretty clear as to what happened on the infamous cut to black and silence. All in all, it's because of all these risks and commitment to do things differently on television that The Sopranos is regarded as one of the best of all time and rightfully so. Major disappointment: the ducks didn't return!!!
