And it's all over now, Baby Blue

The greatest TV show of all time is soon coming to an end. If you live in the US of A then the final series of the Sopranos is going to be aired on Easter Sunday (that's April 8th).

If you live in the UK and are addicted to the show, then do not search for "sopranos" on google, avoid all emails from America for the next three months and do not read the newspapers. It seems that we (avid UK based fans) will have to be very careful to not accidentally find out what happens. Seeing as More4/E4/Channel 4 will not pull their finger out and give this series in a respectable time-frame, we'll have to wait until the TV overlords decide that we are worthy enough to see this.

I mean what is all that about? Why can't we just have the show the day after the US airing or something? It would certainly stop those little nerdy pricks downloading it from the net, which seems to excite TV executives to a stupid degree. Hey, even better, why not release it on DVD first as soon as the series is over in the States? I know I'd pay £100 for that.

While we're waiting for it to make our way to our shores, why not get some food down our throats, Sopranos style? Regarding the plot line... my money is on AJ entering the "family" and Tony snuffing it. Only time or a misplaced click of the mouse will prove me right or wrong.

In other news I've written a review of the Playing Fields debut album and one of Craig Johnston's debut EP.

It's All Over Now Baby Blue

I've stuck doggedly with The Sopranos despite barely being excited since the third season. I've bought seasons 1 thru 4 on DVD and will probably spring for the rest at some point, picking them up as cheap R4 discs on CD-Wow. I'm looking forward to the last episodes, but it doesn't get me as hot under the collar as new Doctor Who these days.

All that said, like you, I don't see why we can't get the show a bit sooner. I mean, we get American Idol the same week it airs in the US...
