Funny Sopranos link

I think the 15 Minutes of Fame Tour has finally come to a halt, but I thought some of you might get a kick out of Emmy-winning blogger Ken Levine's take on what "The Sopranos" finale would have been like if it was a network show.

When I get done with the Apatow story, I'll try to wrap up my take on the first few ABC pilots I watched.

Here's a funny link to the "original ending".

The parallel parking thing is interesting. One of the things that William Goldman mentions in his books about screenwriting is that no one in film ever has trouble finding a parking space because it would completely zap the flow of a scene. Watching Meadow struggle over parallel parking was an effective tension builder in that last scene. I mean, for those viewers who actually expected something to happen.

This one isn't so funny, but it's brilliant, IMHO:

I rewatched the final scene and it's not just Meadow's travails with parallel parking that build tension, but the way Tony looks around the room, and Meadow crossing a busy street (and getting honked at), and on and on. People may think Chase is a bastard for doing it, but that's probably because he was so damn effective.
