I've been puzzling over this for a week, and I have to know. You meant that in the Ursula Le Guin sense, right?
Dear CarolynSorry for the delayYes, I thought the characters in the first episode were too modern in their personalities and behavior. Their elves aren't v. elvish, while their harfoots and dwarves are parodic. It fit the phenomenon Le Guin diagnosed in her essay FROM ELFLAND TO POUGHKEEPSIE; hence the (rather oblique) nod to her workNot that I don't think Le Guin only tells half the story. But that's the subject of another post.--John R.
