    I have no problem with the 'life goes on' ending, however the abruptness of Tony looking up, and a solid black screen led me to think first "oh **** what at time for the cable to go".

    And wasn't the guy at the counter from the NY crew?

    One question, after all these years, who's the guy who whacked Phil?

    I took it that the FBI guy was getting some vicarious pleasure from the war between the families (and a distraction from his hated terrorism focus) and he let it slip out when he said "I think were gonna win this thing" because he was excited to actually have an effect on something.

    That was my favorite part of the whole episode.....I laughed my ass off at that.

    i'm sure HBO had alot to do with that ending. i mean its so open ended anything could happen. a movie will definitely happen and now they can go anywhere with it. or they could even be roped into making another season in a few years if enough money is thrown at everyone. no way in hell this is the last we'll see from the sopranos especially since it is HBO's cash cow and i'm sure they will have thousands of cancelled subs tomorrow.

    Horrible, horrible ending. Total cop out on Chase's part. Have the balls to tell the story you want to tell, don't let the viewers decide for themselves.

    Horrible.

    I have to weigh in and agree with the others.....with a big WTF???

    WORST Series finale EVER!

    The only thing that this does is set us up for the big "Sopranos" movie.....to see what happens to Tony. This, when they promised that tonight's show would be the definitive end of the characters. This is no definitive ending.....just leaves it open.

    Nice hit on Phil, I definitely cringed as they showed his head as the tire was rolling.....but the ending of this show was just pitiful. Ok...if you want to fade down to black...that is one thing....but I (and apparently lots of others) thought the DirectTV signal went out or I had a drop out on my TiVo. I even switched to my backup TiVo thinking my TiVo had a problem (especially since my TiVo had rebooted right before Christopher's car crash and came back up with Tony on the phone telling Carm that Chrisopher was dead!!!)

    Maybe it's not the last you'll see of it. But after that ending, it's the last I'll see of it. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

    Oh, and my new subwoofer went BOOOM when the car blew up.

    The music in digital sounded great, and the picture looked great in HD.

    I really enjoyed it.

    I also suspect that Chase knew that he would get the reaction that he is getting from most people, and I think he enjoys that too.

    That sucked. I sort of expect this from Lost, but not Sopranos.

    They should have taken series finale lessons from the good folks at Six Feet Under.

    It was anti-climactic to say the least -- but it's what I expected as this Final Season went along. Chase didn't want to kill off Tony, I think he felt that the fans would not want to see that.

    My interpretation of the ending is that life goes on for Tony as it always had. He'll always be looking over his shoulder, he'll always beat the rap.

    That's an interesting theory about Meadow though. They do make a point of delaying her entering the restaurant by having the parallel parking difficulties long enough so that the mysterious guy at the counter goes to the bathroom before she is seated. Otherwise what's the point of showing us Meadow in the car. If the guy does in fact come out firing, then Meadow surely gets it.

    But I don't think that's what Chase was getting at.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible.

    Even if it was meant that Tony died then why go to black? When he was in a coma, we still saw life outside his brain.

    If you want to leave it in doubt, why the sudden cut like someone ran out of film?

    F* you to the whole thing.

    Now THAT was a series finale!

    I'm in the "worst ever series finale" camp, I'm afraid.

    I gotta agree with this ending. That was why Chase cut to black silence. And Meadow saw the whole thing.
