I just finished watching today. What an amazing ride! The ending left me feeling like a punch in the gut, but I'll withhold any spoilers. It was absolutely worth the $31 admission. Such great performances by all, and the writing... I could listen to the Horace and Pete's regulars banter and debate all day, especially when Kurt is involved. I'm glad Joe Pesci turned down the part of Uncle Pete, because Alan Alda is perfect. Edie Falco is top-notch, and Steve Buscemi's performance really hit me hard... Pete's such a tragic character! I believe some awards are in order. I'm curious to hear some of your opinions on this show.
