Well, probably the greatest show ever, as HBO's little seen The Wire certainly gives it a good run for its money, but that's another story. The weakest of all the Seasons by a long way it has as many plodding episodes as great ones. It starts off strong with one of the best season openers ever but seems to lose its way long before the much maligned ending. Far too much focus on A.J. who, in all fairness, has always been one of few annoying characters in the show, absences of logic in things that well established characters do (including Tony - where did his gambling problem suddenly appear from?!), burst of violence that, for the first time ever in The Soprano's, seem over-stylised and gratuitous. And where has the humour gone? I understand that this was always going to be a 'dark' season, it could never have been anything else, but the complete lack of the jet black humour that has characterised the show since its inception is bewildering - much of it is borderline depressing to watch. And Phil Leotardo has proved himself a very dull adversary - criminal considering he's played by the legend that is Frank Vincent. For all my griping though, it's the final 9 episodes of TVs (probable) finest hour. I'm going to miss it like hell.
