All in all, I don’t think we’ve ever taken Guilded Age itself as unseriously as we do here. It’s just a story with neat crap in it, kids, stop freakin’ thinking. If you’re analyzing it, you’re probably getting too old for it! As you can see from all the rest of these annotations, for the rest of the series, we took a… different approach.

Not that we ever quite lost sight of the fact that we needed “wizards an’ elves an’ shit” to make the rest of it interesting. We were never going to read like an Existentialist drama.

Next time out, the mighty Guilded Age characters have to interact with shadowy figures who’ve been observing their every move! No, not Carol and HR: you the readers.
