    Hey,

    I was wondering if its worth watching the entire series even after knowing the ending? I saw the ending after it first happened and people were pissed and such and never watched a single episode. Just curious if its worth watching even if i may not of liked the ending(even though i never watched the show)

    Here are other shows i love:
    Dexter
    Six Feet Under
    Twin Peaks
    The Shield
    Weeds

    Would i like it based on liking these shows?

    Thanks!

    Yes, start from the beginning

    If nothing else, seasons 1-5 will be very rewarding

    Yes, given the shows you enjoy I think this one would be worth the time invested. I'm sure you'll like it; just get past the first four or five episodes (I didn't like the show initially but it grew on me when I sat down and watched several episodes). Oh and don't get too turned off by Tony's mom...I hated her character but the show is good enough to survive past that subplot.

    Yes, you should still watch it. You have to see characters like Ralph, Tony B, Richie Aprile, along with many others.

    NO QUESTION- WATCH IT!! The Sopranos is one of the finest programs I have ever seen in any medium. Perfectly cast and brilliantly written. This being series television, the episodes and the seasons can be uneven at times- but the first few seasons are especially good. I am in the middle of rewatching the entire series on dvd, and I'm quite surprised at how enjoyable it is, even after my repeated viewings through the years. Enjoy!

    **SPOILERS AHEAD**

    Um, you *DO* realize that a) you were supposed to hate her (who in the hell could possibly LIKE a person like that?); and that b) had Nancy Marchand [the actress who played Tony's Mom] survived, she would have played a MAJOR role in the shaping & direction of the show and its characters...all the way to the end of the series?

    You absolutely should watch the show. It is not how the show ends that makes the show great (probably cuz the ending was bad), it's the whole shoot-em-up-psychoanalyzing-pasta-eating-bada-bing-goin-foul-mouthed-funny-yet-dramatic journey that makes the show one of the greatest TV programs ever!
