To be clear...I was happy with the review. And I think you pointed out something that is present in every TV show and movie...some people will like it, some people won't. That is just the nature of the beast. If we had done one episode, we would be locked into one story and style. With a couple episodes we might actually reach a wider audience.
Anyway, I am very pleased with both of these episodes, and am glad fans find one or both appealing for different reasons.
