About That 'Sopranos' Episode

By Published on .

I'm not one of those who was caught up in "Sopranos" fever. Judging by reaction to the final episode, I'm glad. As a person who tends to get involved in his favorite TV shows and who takes it as a personal offense when key episodes fail to live up to expectations or standards, I'm thinking I may have cursed the TV last night. Or that's the impression I'm getting from CNN and a quick cruise of the blogs.

Just to quote one example, here's the always calm and rational (cough, cough) Nikki Finke: "[David] Chase clearly didn't give a damn about his fans. Instead, he crapped in their faces. This is why America hates Hollywood."

More important from a business standpoint, though, are the calls to cancel HBO subscriptions -- though I don't really think the small number of people who actually carry out that threat once the anger passes will make much of a dent.
