Soprano Sue reminds us in her blog that the Sopranos’ highly-touted Google Maps promotion is supposed to go live today. We predict this could be
an even bigger time-waster temporarily more interesting than Baristanet. Imagine the possibilites of sitting in front of your computer all day and finding where Paulie Walnuts lives, and how long it takes him to get to Tony’s house. There’s only one problem. HBO doesn’t seem to have remembered. Nothing on their website about the maps yet. (Although we did discover that there are a lot of Bada Bings out there.)
While we wait for the map, let’s brainstorm about how the show might finally come to an end — the subject of a story in yesterday’s New York Times.
One thing both men now know for sure is that the voyage of “The Sopranos” is coming to an end. After several years of speculation, Mr. Chase and the executives of HBO came to an agreement that the latest season of 12 episodes, which starts up on March 12, would be the show’s last √¢‚Ç¨‚Äù and then they renegotiated again and added a mini-season of eight more episodes that will be shot in the coming months and played starting next January.
Of course, like with Six Feet Under, it’s got to end with the main character’s funeral, right? So how should Tony Soprano get offed? In fact, let’s make it a contest. Prize: some Sopranos swag lying around Soprano Sue’s house, yet to be determined. Judge: Soprano Sue herself. Points for creativity and making us laugh out loud. And remember, boys and girls, this is a family website. So keep it clean.
