TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: America's first crime family bows out in a chilling cut to black during a meditative final season that is debatably cruel to audience expectations but wholly committed to its thematic integrity.

It's still a master-class in building tension. David Chase mines more suspense out of a family talking at a diner as a young woman struggles to parallel park than most pure horror directors could even dream.

Any explanation... no matter how smart or well-reasoned, misses the point. To explain it would diminish it.

Rather than an ending that would stop the conversation about Tony Soprano, Chase gave us an ending that will keep us talking.

Somehow, though, it feels like the perfect final note. Why wouldn't a show that's taken such pleasure in rewriting the rules of storytelling go out in the least conventional way possible?

Think of it as complete at last, a perfect whole. It's finished but it's not over. Life goes on.

Its final season mostly crackled, with the usual superior performances and writing from actors James Gandolfini and Edie Falco, and creator David Chase... For now it's curtains on an extraordinary achievement.

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!!!
