The annoying habit of jumping back and forth in a timeline is not adding anything to the series either. It gives me the feeling that they were editing this thing up till the last day.
I think there are plenty of spinoffs possible. Im especially interested in the "emptying" of the Great Smokies National Park of all the approximately 7500 residents who were hard scrabble hillbilly farmers.
Maybe te entire scope of the project got away from Burns and he tried to bring it back with the little vignettes of "ordinary" people interacting in the Nat Parks.
Oh well, Ive invested 4 days, Im goin for all 6 then I can bitch with greater understanding. Maybe itll all come together like a Tarrantino movie.
