I can’t say I’ve been the most faithful Sopranos watcher, as I canceled my premium channels a while back to save money. But, I have been a fan of the opening theme song. The actor playing AJ really went through a lot of changes during the series. I hope never to meet a real Tony Soprano. He can turn on a “friend” in a second and beat their brains out. Not unlike Jack Bauer of 24, yet Jack isn’t labeled a sociopath. According to Medicine Net the new term for sociopath is “Antisocial personality disorder: A pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others and inability or unwillingness to conform to what are considered to be the norms of society.” If you haven’t seen the finale, don’t read anymore.
The abrupt ending was an interesting way to leave things. I would think there is no way there can be a happy ending. A lot was made of Meadow parking her car, and of AJ’s bipolar behavior. It was time for the series to end. In a way it would have been very final to have Tony and his family go out the way they lived, but it was quite clever to leave everyone hanging.
