Goodbye To All That
Watchboy, aka Aaron, hot off his 19 for 24 win on his Oscar ballot, pointed me to this interesting essay on "The Coast Of Utopia" in the Nation. I strongly disagree that the show is confusing or overwhelming in its drama. I've had the advantage of seeing it all in one day and then again over a period of ten days, but it was no more difficult to follow the twists and turns of the characters than on your usual primetime drama. But the writer's more esoteric thoughts are worth pondering.
