After some 17 weeks, I’ve finally finished watching The Sopranos on More4 where they’ve been showing it every weekday night. Having watched the last episode I must say it came as something of an anticlimax, it’s almost as if they ran out of tape and didn’t bother recording the last few seconds of the episode. I’m left with no feeling of closure.

    I knew about the anticlimax when it ended in the US, if you look up the reason for the ending the writer said something stupid like ‘what ever you think you;re wrong’ or ‘don’t read anything into it it’s all rubbish’ or something equally stupid.

    I reckon you’re right about the tape thing.

    I’ve read his explanations for it, and I think he’s just making excuses for the tape cock-up :)

    I reckon he just got bored of writing it and it was sunny outside so he just scribbled.

    Relatively speaking, so few shows get the opportunity to get actual, proper, closure, so it’s annoying when they mess it up or leave you feeling cheated (eg Rosanne….)….

    Like Matt says, there were post-transmission comments when 24m americans [1] collectively went “Huuuuh?” at the conclusion of the series. I vaguely remember one trying to say that the ending was open to interpretation, or some such rot.
