Critical Eye

New York mob boss Johnny "Sack" Sacramoni (Vince Curatola) pleaded guilty and will be in prison for a long, long time. Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli) has a new love and is playing house - when he isn't shooting heroin. Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco) again has seen the ghost of Adrianna La Cerva (Drea de Matteo). Meanwhile Carmela's husband, Tony (James Gandolfini), the man responsible for Adrianna's death, has survived his own brush with death and wonders why, if every day's a gift, so many "wind up being a pair of socks."

The last full season of HBO's acclaimed crime drama, The Sopranos, ends tonight, and there is widespread disagreement as to whether or not the past 12 episodes have been worth the 21-month wait. (A short season of eight final episodes will air in January and February.)
