TV serials, says Richard Beck, self-consciously set out from the very beginning to get us to take them seriously. From Hill Street Blues
to The West Wing
to The Sopranos
and The Wire
, how the television series convinced us that it was art
— and now, why Lost
's achievement of success via casual genre mixing and narrative derangement might signal that there's no future creative ground left within the old limits of serial drama.

Not a Journey fan? This tool
over at Stereogum allows you to re-score the final scene of The Sopranos with any MP3 you can either find online
or host online yourself.

E Street Band guitarist and erstwhile Sopranos
star Little Steven
is launching a syndicated radio show
to be centered around garage rock of the '60's plus latter day punk as well according to this story
. Steve's own site includes some great live reviews
and excellent garage rock links
. I, for one, am really looking forward to hearing this show. Good luck, Steve.

A.J. Arrested -- for real!
The actor that plays Anthony Jr. on the Sopranos was arrested for boosting another kid's bag of weed on a street corner. It's one thing when you start to believe your own hype, but when your doper buddies do -- watch out!!

Tomorrow night - Sopranos Finale
- Will Jackie Jr. get a pass? Will Paulie or Christopher get whacked? Where the Hell did that Russian go? Will we ever see Gloria again? I don't often get wrapped up in a TV series, but damn, I am hooked into this one.
