Uncomfortable & raw. "Enlightened" illustrates our need for connection while trying to stand straight on the balance beam between openness and defensiveness.

and another great show with actual content instead of stereotypes got cancelled ... it's sad to see that HBO seems to care only about the money and not about the artistic value. One would think that they have enough "blockbuster shows" to also make space for at least some more niche shows that may not draw so much viewers but please reviewers and people who are not willing to put the IQ on suspend while watching shows... unfortunately it becomes a bit of a trademark of HBO to cancel shows (rome, deadwood, enlightened) ... why should we at all start to watch a new one?!
