Tonight at 9PM, The Sopranos will air its final episode on HBO. It marks six seasons over eight years where viewers got to know NJ mob boss Tony Soprano, his blood family and his mob family. Creator David Chase filled each episode with enough angst, passion, violence, and intensity to make pretty much anything else on TV seem half-hearted. As we approach the final hours before we say good bye to Tony, Carm, Paulie and everyone else who remains, we wonder what you think:

Keep in mind, Chase filmed three different endings. Who's your favorite Sopranos characters? And what's your favorite Sopranos episode? We're going to make ourselves a breasole sandwich and ponder this.
