How much hate?
So much that the volume of hate traffic to the HBO web site brought the site down for a significant period of time according to Adotas. This is backed by Deadline Hollywood Daily which is even pissier about the premature fade-to-blaculation:
This is why America hates Hollywood. Unlike some network series that end abruptly because broadcasters pull the plug without warning, The Sopranos has been slated for years to go off the air tonight. But instead of carefully crafted, this finale looked like it had been concocted in a day or two.
As far as the belief that the series finale was a moment of artistic zen, I maintain that Sopranos creator David Chase could’ve had a monkey eating a banana at the end of the episode and some folks would write about the ‘brilliance’ behind its ending.
If we want to figure out what Chase meant, I don’t believe we have to look any further than minutes before the infamous diner scene. Paulie was tripping over the cat who was fixated on Chrissy’s photo. Tony’s response?
Don’t read too much into anything or you’ll miss out on life.
Another big F.U. from David Chase to the fans.
I guess we could follow his advice…
But where is the fun in that?
The morning after, where do you stand on the Sopranos season finale?Related Posts
