I know what you mean, and you critique the show very well, but perhaps you're just not the right audience. I mean, the shaggy-dog-tale nature is part of its charm for me. I think the acting, ideas, plotting, and production are all very high quality. But it depends on what you like. It is a bit spectacle over substance. But it does have some substance, and the spectacle is enjoyable as well. It's a show that attempts to appeal to a mass audience, and succeeds, but it also has interesting ideas about identity and time travel and throwing Hitler into a cupboard. It's a modern day melodrama; and for me, it's enjoyable, interesting, and sometimes exhilarating.
