Re: This season and this finale: one last thing to ponder...
It was character driven at first, but moved more and more towards the mythology. And unfortunately, when you have the characters doing stupid or out-of-character things solely because of the plot/mythology, it would help to have that mythology thought out and make a little sense. If there's no reason for the characters to be doing what they're doing, it doesn't hang together very well...
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
