wow, a great recap for someone who never got into this show — I watched a few episodes, and all I remember are Kerry Washington’s giant quivering lips, and two characters who seemed WAAAY too absorbed in their own petty issues, considering the gravity of the sh#t & other people’s lives they were fucking with.
so … how did that last episode go? don’t worry about spoiling it for me, I’ll never watch it, but after your essay I am curious.
did they leave the door open for a spinoff?
Gettysburger? that’s funny
ps: if you’re looking for a new show to fill the gap, maybe go back & rediscover Six Feet Under, my all-time favorite
