    1. Bell rings, camera goes to straight on shot of Tony's face, camera goes to Tony's view looking at door (random lady comes in)
    2. Bell rings, camera goes to straight on shot of Tony's face, camera goes to Tony's view looking at door (old man in USA hat comes in)
    3. Bell rings, camera goes to straight on shot of Tony's face, camera goes to Tony's view looking at door (Carmella comes in)
    4. Bell rings, camera goes to straight on shot of Tony's face, camera goes to Tony's view looking at door (Members Only Guy comes in, followed by AJ not too far behind)

    Members Only Guy goes to men's room with a 100% clear line of sight straight to Tony since Meadow isn't sitting there. Meadow runs across the street an into Holsten's

    5. Bell rings, camera goes to straight on shot of Tony's face, then pitch black (Meadow comes in)

    I don't see how anyone can interpret that as anything other than Members Only Guy pulling a Michael Corleone on Tony. They get that Godfather reference into the last scene as well as the Goodfellas reference that you never see it coming when you're murdered (which Bobby also brought up in the episode they were on the boat going to Canada).

    I don't see what's ambiguous about that ending. It's a crystal clear pattern

    Bell rings, camera goes to straight on shot of Tony's face, camera goes to Tony's view looking at door

    Except in the fifth time Tony's view is black because he's killed instantly by Members Only Guy who could just walk straight up to him and blow his brains out since the seat next to Tony is empty.

    It's easily my favorite ending I have seen to any series.
    Yeah the godfather thing was on the nose. Just didn't provide satisfying closure for me. After his selfish detestable acts, I wanted to see him fall not have it fade to black from his pov.

    I respect its efforts tho, just didn't do it for me

    I have not watched the before mentioned. My favorite are Mr.Robot and Last Kingdom.

    Seinfeld, Friends and Community

    Cheers and Office are also great

    In the last year, I've rewatched Sopranos, the Wire, and BB. The Sopranos felt a little dated in how the series was shot and written. Still great but right now, I've got:

    1) BB
    2) The Wire
    3) The Sopranos

    Not sure where the rest of my top 5 winds up. Better Call Saul, Bosch, Downton Abbey probably get to top 6 in some order. About to rewatch DA.
    Sherlock was also great but it was almost like watching several individual movies.
    Great List. Don't know if it counts, as it's more of an anthology, but Season 1 of True Detective is pretty awesome also.

    Yeah...that first season of True Detective is one of the best seasons of any series. But Season 2 sucked and Season 3 was just OK. Not enough to qualify in a top 10 list.

    I also thought of including Sherlock but it didn't feel right because of the format. It'd be in my top 5 or 6 though.

    Yeah...Mad Men is up there for sure. It's somewhere between 4 and 6 for me.

    yeah Mad Men would be in my top 5 as well

    Season 1 of True Detective was great. didnt even make it through season 2.

    season 1 of mr robot was fun. imo the show got worse and worse with each season. however the plot twist in season 2 was an amazing moment

    first half of Dexter was top notch. 2nd half was pretty dull

    I don't know if it is in my top 5, but Luther was really good. Mad Men is up there for me too.

    Is realism a parameter? Because nobody's really mentioning the comedies.

    Luther is great. Hadn’t really considered it. Maybe because of the relatively few seasons compared to the rest.

    As far as a completed vision, I can't put Lost or Game of Thrones in my top tier. But in terms of shows that I most enjoyed watching on their run? Shows that I couldn't wait to see the next episode or read episode recaps for? Not sure anything else compares. Sucks that they had crappy endings and didn't follow through on their potential.

    Then I don't have much problem with what's being put forth other than to quintuple down on 'The Wire' being the most over-rated show on ST by far.
    It's as if all the neckbeards here would never forgive themselves if they didn't appease their white guilt.

    Everything that is the best thing ever is always called overrated these days bc of the reddit TIL type internet

    For my money I've still not seen anything supersede the wire. Done 3 or so full rewatches. I can see myself watching all of it again some time in the future.

    TUBI stream has brought back the series "Family" from 1976. Loved this is in the circa and it's a fine transfer; uncut, with a few 1 minute commercials during each episode. All 5 seasons/83 episodes are right there.

    Also, the H&I network on cable is showing "Hill Street Blues" and are about to restart from Season One within the next week. (restarts tonight, early Friday morning with Episode 1.)

    HEADS UP!!!
