i know there's a couple here that watch it.
I've seen the whole works and I was disappointed by the end in the lack of a cohesive narrative and characters getting really flattened out with very little development. There's some delving into race that made me really kind of dislike the whole construct of the show at this point. When it started off it was about the class divides breaking down to some extent, and for the better on all sides. Now it seems to be about reinforcing those barriers and the overall rightness of everyone knowing their place.
