SPOILER AHEAD - AS IF YOU HAVEN'T RUN INTO ONE ALREADY
We really should have seen this one coming. Anyone who's watched even a single episode of HBO'sThe Sopranos has felt the need to chime in on how New Jersey mob boss/family man Tony would meet his demise in last night's highly anticipated series finale: Would he be brutally whacked by a competing crime unit? Would his wife and kids be tortured in front of him? Would he (gasp) be sent to prison? Would he possibly take his own life?

Eighty-six episodes later, and we still don't know the answer. Because in keeping with a recent media theme, it's all about YOU, the audience. We'll let YOU figure it out, The Sopranos creators teased, as content cut abruptly to black in the program's final seconds.

It may be mixing pop-culture messages. But as far as I'm concerned, the whole "you" business really jumped the shark with this one.
