As usual, I'll just skip that one. The absolute hubris of that being their follow-up to the amazing first season is almost -- but not quite -- Twin Peaks Season 2 territory.Looking forward to season 2 at the docks!? Huh? Huh!? HUUUUH!!!
The NEWS part of Season 5 always felt like a Marvel comics-style portrayal of how a scandal could go down. That sticks out because most of the other seasons have subdued, realistic portrayals. But this big showdown is exaggerated to demonstrate that a big incendiary event, capable of burning the heads of all three institutions, (police, city hall, and news) would necessitate them conspiring together to contain the damage. But ... in real life, these are three entities with many variables between them, and to top it off, none of them trust each other. So it would be pretty much impossible to contain such a thing. But all of that is a vehicle to show how they are intertwined, which is a way of wrapping the show's different focuses together in a nice... big... burrito.I may have asked this before, but as a professional journalist what was your take on the more out there elements of season 5? Completely bonkers, or a dramatization of games reporters and police actually play to varying degrees?
