The second the last episode of the Sopranos finished I realized that I’d had this sensation before. It felt just like watching the last Matrix movie, waiting for something to happen and finally finishing with a big wet sloppy WTF? Now I think my previous diffidence was probably the correct response. I’m glad I didn’t spend a lot of energy being excited about this. To quote Johnny Rotten: “Do you ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”
On the upside, John from Cincinnati was completely intriguing. I predict we will find out that the titular John is in the role of John the Baptist, and the Yost family are either the second coming of or descendants of Jesus. Anything with Luis Guzman will get at least a fair shake from me. I figured this would have to be strong, because HBO doesn’t want to have a massive cancellation of the service tomorrow. Kind of like we were planning to. We shall see.
