The fat lady sings for 'Sopranos'

PASADENA -- "The Sopranos" is fini after this season -- really. David Chase, creator and executive producer of the HBO hit series, assured critics Friday at the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour that he won't be coaxed back for more after the 20 episodes he is working on are completed. "That will be the end," Chase said. "Definitely." The previous season of "Sopranos" was intended to be the final episodes, but HBO managed to lure Chase back for more. Twelve new episodes unspool in March, followed by the final eight episodes in January 2007. Chase even scotched the perennial speculation that HBO could produce a theatrical version of the show.

as long as Chase wraps it up, that's fine.

It's been on for a long time. I'm still sorry to see it go.

I've been re-watching the episodes in order to get ready for March. I'll be sorry to see it go but I'm also looking forward to seeing how it ends.

This has been the case for a long while. I think it's the right decision.

Kev, call me?

I've been doing that too, HBO On Demand's been showing a season a month.

You know, I get a sinking feeling that the new season is going to be a huge letdown.

So are these going to be seasons 6 and 7? Or just a super long season 6?

In eight years though, they'll have aired only 85 episodes. That's one episode every five weeks.

The latter.

You know, I get a sinking feeling that the new season is going to be a huge letdown. I doubt it will be a letdown, but I'm 100% sure a LOT of people will say it is. EVERY season, people say that the show sucks or jumped the shark or isn't as good as its first season, blah blah blah. But they're always wrong. Sopranos has always maintained a consistent level of quality. Just watch, though. There will be very vocal people not pleased with the season premiere, and I'm going to predict that they'll be full of crap.
