    After watching the finale of the Sopranos, I have to say…I wish I watched the Tonys.

    I expected the Sopranos to end with a climax of some sort, so like a lot of people I thought "Huh?! What was THAT?" when the credits final started to roll. But upon reflection I think it was about as brilliant a way to end the series as any of the other possible ways I had been imagining would have been.I will miss the characters a lot.

      "Life goes on, and on and on." It was the only ending.The only really interesting aspect of that episode was that Tony's kid finally became the guy Tony wanted Christopher to be: his son. Gotta love that irony.
