>Reports have recently emerged, stating that the Sons of Anarchy Mayans spin-off show is finally in production at FX Networks. With Kurt Sutter having wrapped up production on Season 1 of The Bastard Executioner, he now has the time to begin producing the Mayans show. It is confirmed that Kurt Sutter is in the Executive Producer seat for the new show.
>Entertainment Weekly has verified that the storyline will revolve around the Oakland-based Mayans MC, which as we remember, had a rocky relationship with SAMCRO throughout the seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy. The spin-off will highlight the Mayans history, without compromising the already-established SAMCRO story.

I finished The Sopranos yesterday. Gotta say, as I watched it, I didn't feel like it was one of the best shows of all time, but now that its finished, it really starts to sink in as a really robust piece of work.
Because Breaking Bad is one of my few drama references for TV-greatness (haven't delved too much into series) I originally expected a lot of cliffhangers (stuff like this absolute masterpiece of a scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBcbc8eWz6U) and escalating situations, so I was very surprised when I realized that the episodes are mostly auto-conclusive, almost as if it had a format ala CSI, and that the development was much more internalized, rather than focusing on narrative. I didn't mind this, I guess it's more closer to a life-like portrait, but it certainly is a different approach to what I expected.
Now, the ending completely caught me by surprise, but not exactly the way it did to everyone. What happened is that I first came to contact with it years ago during one of the "Talking Bad" episodes, in which Vince Gilligan mentions how the series ended "in midst of a shootout", so out of curiosity I searched the ending on YouTube and, I don't remember if I actually saw any clips or filled the scene in my mind, but somehow I had this clear image of Tony barricading behind a car while incessantly shooting something akin to an AK47 on a final standout against another crew, and then the credits start rolling with the sound of the guns still firing, and not knowing who gets shot. When I saw the actual ending, you can imagine my absolute surprise at the ending itself and the fact that this was all in my mind.
All I can say about it is that to make a song as shit as "Don't Stop Believing" work in a way that feels so inherently climatic and emotional has to take some serious fucking skill.
Since the reception of it seems to be good, I wonder, is there anybody here who didn't like the finale? Or the entire series, for that matter? Talk Sopranos!

EW has released a number of set photos and the plotline:
>Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander (Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne) comes to New York with his trusty weathered case. This case is one of those a bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called “No-Maj” in the States, more on that here) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (Salem witch trials). Fantastic Beasts is the story of what happens when this uniquely skilled English wizard travels to wiz-phobic America and a variety of his creatures, some quite dangerous … get out of their case.
Some set reports are also hinting that we may see actors from the HP series, both reprising new roles (Jason Isaacs as Abraxas, Lucius Malfoy's father, for example) and their previous roles. A
