It's the final countdown,
This review is from: The Sopranos: HBO Season 6 (Part 2 - The Final Episodes) [DVD]  (DVD)
My final Sopranos review. It's been a hell of a show.
This half season continues where the first half left off, with Tony recovering from being shot, his son in a relationship with a Portirican woman who is ten years his senoir, and the relations with the New York family going sour in the wake of Vito's death. This season closely examines the themes that have fuelled the show since it's genesis: loyalty, the human condition, and weather Tony is a good guy or a complete scumbag. The first two are dealt with subtly, in ways like expressions on faces during conversations, such as the nervous flicker of an eye or the disapointed curve of a mouth. The third theme is given a final confirmation about two thirds of the way through the season, in the episode "Kennedy and Heidi", although i will not say how or which path Tony chooses in the end.
The first few episodes are calm and nothing much happens, giving the viewer time to see the daily lives of the characters they love one final time, before things start happening, and fast. As i said before, the relations between the two famalies is not very good at the moment. I will say no more.
As a half season, these nine episodes round off the series quite well, being at terms frastratingly anti-climactic and brilliantly emotional, right up until the final episode. As a series, the Sopranos has been not as immeadietly accessible as something like Fringe or Smallville, but an emotional rollercoaster of death, bloodshed, loss and, above all, swearing.
Best episodes "Stage 5" "Walk Like a Man" "Kennedy and Heidi" and "The Blue Comet"
