My problem is that someone with very limited insights are selling a halfbaked analysis as a fact. I would probably have ignored this, had Syddjurs muncipality not decided to put up signs and use this...

This is basically how I feel. I constantly nitpick while watching it, and though I am entertained by the show, there is no buzz.

I do hope they get to wrap the story up somewhat neatly though.
