winding down

The story of Queen Seon Deok is coming to a close. I'm at episode 59, and there are only three episodes left after this one. It's been a great ride, though I think the storytelling and direction have slacked off somewhat since episode 50, which is about when the story's greatest villain dies. The rest feels a bit like a rushed anticlimax, and thus far, the handling of Bidam's rebellion against the queen suggests a dramatic rewriting of history for the sake of a romantic subplot. As with "True Grit," I'll have more to say about this series later.
