It’s one of the best shows to have ever run. Period. But some of the episodes, I have to say, suck. They’re bloated and pretentious and poorly written. I even say that about the lauded final episode. Sorry, but all of that falderal made no sense. but then again, I’m not a person devoted to figuring it out. By the way, “the village” is a real place that you can actually visit.
