The Agony of Anticipation

It's downright agonizing waiting for tonight's final episode of the greatest dramatic series in the history of television, i.e., The Sopranos. There's the agony of the suspense about how David Chase decides to bring this to an end. Will it be memorable? A legendary hour in and of itself? A letdown? A whimper? A bang? What will be resolved? Or will all be left unresolved? Chase is fully capable of leaving it all up in the air.

Then there's the agony of knowing that it ends forever. I'll probably be dead before anything this good comes along again. Well, in a couple of years, I'll get the DVD's, and start from the beginning, one episode per week, and re-live the pleasure all over again.

Of course, speculation about tonight's finale has been flying all over every form of media. My favorite comes from the blogosphere's own David Weinberger.
