all right!  and defiance comes back on too.  on the 19th, i think.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

A little late in posting. What a great ending - we won. I must admit, I miss this show.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools, because they have to say something.

Noah Wyle seems to have a love of history and this country.  His shows incorporate this.  I also like The Librarians.  It's a bit goofy, but it's got lots of bits of history, mythology, etc.

Did you notice he worked Alexis de Tocqueville into a couple of the episodes in the last season?
