Why watch yet another monster movie? The relationships, the deepening characters, the great sense of humor, the conspiracy element, the management of all those while mixing a relatively weak who-done-it theme with a curiosity-poking why-done it aspect and how-they-gonna-tell-it, knowing the surprises are coming right where you don't expect them. Often a hoot (so to beak), albeit sans the depth of StarTrek, there is definitely the symbolic interplay, not to mention the *Wounded Warrior* archetype laying the groundwork for the whole of it.
And the history element, merging the factual with fantasy, but meaningfully symbolic - puts a nice twist on the *family of origin* element, not to mention the "inner-personality" element. The episode titles are definitely more creative than StarTrek. I thought the characters were developing fast into their depth by season three, when for a bit it seemed they would lose their sense of humor as those we came to love or wait for were either killed or lost into their more evil-influenced sides. But it did keep me laughing - the sensitive bluebod with the so well-timed understatements, and his incredibly talented wife, the heart-balance of the show, methinks.
Pulling us through the heartbreak, the long game conspiracy plot reveals itself and deepens via the Wesen royalty and other hierarchies, the resistance, the government part. And some re-emergence of characters, or parts of them, even while the mini-plots keep our Wesen nomenclature up-to-par, albeit ever-expanding with the apparent endless multi-variety of wesen species, the ancient illustrated journals assisting - (who does these anyway!?).
It's not StarTrek - but it's a lot of fun, especially if you like metaphor, plots inside plots, or if your imagination is trying to compete with theirs!
