I am Groot!
It got much worse in the second season. Subtext became text.Did that happen after the first season? I only saw the first season (of BL), and I didn't get any sense of heavyhanding. But, then I broke my Season Pass, didn't record the next season, fell behind, and didn't get back to it. Are you saying I shouldn't bother?
Actually, I started the third season, but it got even worse there and I quit pretty quickly.
