Is it just me?

Or is it a little bit funny that Seinfeld---a show about nothing, revolving around people who spend all their time yakking with friends in a diner---ends with its final shot of the four main characters in prison, while The Sopranos---a show about violent, narcissistic, sociopathic gangsters who spend all their time doing things deserving of prison---ends with its final shot of the four main characters in a diner, yakking about nothing?

Further thoughts from those fine cynics at Pajiba.

I think the world would have been a better place with five more seasons of Rome and five less of the Sopranos.

Oh, and John from Cincinatti looks like a super-snoozer.

HBO has gotten cocky. They think they can just churn out hit series at will now - as a cow drops patties - and they are about to find out that isn't true. I forcast crappy shows and shitty ratings for HBO.

I thought the ending was fine. I wanted Tony to get his brains splattered all over ceation, and since it was a write-your-own-ending ending, that's exactly what happened. The suspicious hitter-looking-guy came out of the men's room and shot Tony in the temple - right in that sociopathic personality of his.

Happy ending.

Sopranos? Seinfeld?
Never watched either.
(though as a kid I did watch Dukes of Hazzard and Three's Company)
