Michael Bierut’s “Everything I Know About Design I Learned from The Sopranos” is an especially fun read on The Morning After the end of the Sopranos.
It’s funny to hear people bitch about the end. There are lots of people saying it was lazy and lacked creativity, but in the same breath they fire off all the possible endings they envisioned.
Isn’t a large part of creativity about the unexpected? If it was predicable it wasn’t creative. If it was formulaic it wasn’t creative. if it was obvious is wasn’t creative.
I think last night’s show was one of the most creative finales I’ve ever seen. The show may be over, but it didn’t end. Or did it? That’s creative.
