Having never seen it, I now ask, what happened?

having never seen it either, you'd think i wouldn't know what (didn't) happen, but in making such assumption you would be failing to account for the fact that i had 1010 WINS on at the time and they seemed to think it was a major breaking news story.

I never saw it, all I heard was that it sucked.
As for screwing the customer, is it really going to make you watch TV less?
It is going to keep youfrom buying the DVD set if you were even going to in the first place?
They've already got all the advertising dollars out of your eyeballs they're going to in this series, they could have shown you an hour of a leafy glade for all it would have made differnce to financials for the show.
Maybe he pissed off some people who might come looking for him, but from a money point of view, it worked out just fine I think.

But, were we talking about advertising dollars, or fans?

it's all about the advertising dollars in the end anyway though.

Well, HBO is paid for content. There aren't commercials on HBO.

Subscriber dollars, then.

ahh, but then there's an argument for not pissing off the fans. I didn't know it was on hbo.
But really, will that stop you/anybody else from at least tring out the next series that comes along and sounds good?
If lots of people say "there's a great new series, but it's by the same guy who did the one with the sucky ending...." would you bother?

I haven't seen the Soprano ending... and in fact, I haven't seen a single episode of The Sopranos since the first season.

However, my understanding is that the ending is far sweeter if you've carefully reviewed past episodes.  The last episode is kind of a reward to people who have really followed the seasons carefully, and sort of a nod to the notion that when you wrong someone (especially multiple someones), you are very likely to pay for your misdeeds.

Well, first HBO had that opera special with the Three Tenors, then some years later they introduced The Sopranos. Anyone want to venture a guess as to which voice part they'll feature next?

The last couple of episodes were really great. But just cutting the ending the way they did was upsetting......

I would have liked to have seen Tony back in his pool and the ducks return, just like the first episode.

I also am in the boat that never watched the Sopranos.  But since EVERYONE seemed to be talking about it I have 2 observations: 

1) there was a thunderstorm rolling through here at the end of the episode, most people around here though their cable had gone out.

2) There was a caller to a local radio station around here, totally hilarious.  Pretty much said when Tony walked into the restaurant there was another "Tony" already there.  and the parallel parking indicated the ending showed there was a parallel universe.

somebody sent me a video this morning of "a better sopranos ending." Since I didn't see the actual epsiode I can't compare, but basically they're sitting in the diner, the guy comes and sits down, they have some onion rings, the girl outside parks her car badly, and then it ends.
So I guess whatever bad happened after the girl parked the car could have been done without.

I'm not familiar with the storyline, but I hereby delcare that "a better ending" would have to involve both the diner and the car exploding.

somehow I never thought of china as housing the worlds best engineers. That's pretty stuffy of them.
