Read full description of the books:
This is a way of talking about the entire show, as I have spent six weeks watching as many seasons. It won't be a surprise that a story about pushing the boundaries of friendship, beliefs and walking your own path would appeal to me, given what I write myself (and other things I've reviewed). I was less sure about the relentless action and increasing horror, and that the fun and the seriousness separated from season 3, so you had very silly episodes and then pretty harsh ones, rather than the synthesis which originally made the show so engaging. I admired the sweep of themes, but the show often grated too.
This book isn't the best quality production-wise and it gives skimpy episode overviews which are often unmeritedly self congratulatory. I'd hoped for more discussion on those themes and understanding of what was intended.
I was never sure if the producers were on the side of peace and love or kicking ass for justice.
I was disappointed ultimately with the show's portrayal of the central relationship, which must be one of the most powerful pairings I can think of, yet the producers said some frustrating things about it not being a romantic love.
I would gladly enter into a discussion on the topic.
