Default Fantastic interview with David Chase with some interesting admissions about The Sopranos

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/07/a...interview.html

https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-e...-a8718741.html

Quote:
Chase: Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the endÖ Tony was going to get called to a meeting with Johnny Sack in Manhattan, and he was going to go back through the Lincoln Tunnel for this meeting, and it was going to go black there and you never saw him again as he was heading back, the theory being that something bad happens to him at the meeting. But we didnít do that.


Matt Zoller Seitz [co-author]: You realise, of course, that you just referred to that as a death scene.

Chase: Fuck you guys!

tís important to note that Chase does well to ensure that the ensuing exchange ends up leaving Tonyís fate up in the air.

The Sopranos ended in 2007 with a finale that continues to be meticulously analysed to this day. It depicts a seemingly ordinary restaurant scene between Tony and his family, which ends with the screen cutting to black. Following its broadcast, many assumed this symbolised the showís protagonist getting whacked.

Later, in the book (page 389 for those with a copy), Chase added: "[The point was] that he could have been whacked in the diner. We all could be whacked in a diner. That was the point of the scene."
Also claims the show was orginally planned to be a movie with Robert de Niro playing Tony and Anne Bancroft as his mother.

Also said he didn't like the epsiodes in Italy.

New book out called The Soprano Sessions celebrating 20 years of the show. Ordered.

Does anyone really care any more?
What difference does it make if he died or lived?
As much as I liked the show, never understood the fuss.

I just ordered it as well.

I am past caring if he lived or died. Im my mind he died when James Gandolfini died.

I watch a couple of hours television a week, at most.

I would rather scoop my eyeballs out than sit through the cretinous public participation programmes and I find soaps equally as pointless.

I was lent the complete Sopranos box set by someone who insisted I gave it a go; I watched it...and then watched the whole lot again.

Utterly outstanding.

Literally watched it at least five times through.

Never gets old.

Was always a bit disappointed that a war between Tony and Johnny Sack never came to fruition. Not a fan of endings that are neither climactic nor conclusive, in some way, either.

Still, best show ever made bar none, IMO. It's even one of the funniest.
