I only just finished watching this series for the first time. I didn't buy the hype when it came out but now I see it was well deserved.

All the characters were so well written and acted. I just binged the series from start to finish so I know now I'll spend a while ruminating on it. I can't say much that hasn't been written in these pages, but I will reiterate what some others have said: I'm glad I watched it now and not 15 years ago, with what I have learned about human (and particularly female) nature in that time.

Also, for the record: I don't think Tony gets whacked in that final blackout. I do think we are left with the idea that it will happen sooner or later (maybe sooner) and that he will forever be looking over his shoulder, never knowing when it is coming.
I'm glad this thread got revived; quite appropriate for a timeless great which is relevant to men. Also I've been watching and rewatching to get into the nuances of their conversations. It's treasure to an overanalyzing type like me.

That said I'm impatiently waiting for the prequel movie. I'm wary how it will go as it's amid the 70's race riots. Will we see Dickie Moltisanti or young Tony being proto SJW's? I'm revving to see how much Chase gets away with his realism this time.
