    there were tiny bits of new material, tiny hints of present tense stuff and introduction of a new character

    Jokes aside, a solid ending. Epilogue was great. Big ole smile at our big ole man coming back for one last thing. Not as powerful a story overall for me, but

    "This is computers ain't it" has come full circle bc not only was it ALIENS it was COMPUTERS.

    This season really could've been stronger but that's what happens when you play a fun game and railroad less. Tbh it's still good, even if I wasn't a super fan.

    honestly Amnesty was, to me, a much more powerful storytelling experience than Balance ever was. and i loved Balance! but Balance had a clear feeling of playing in someone else's sandbox, even though Griffin did a lot of work to make it his own, and the stakes just felt... much lower, most of the time. even though there was universe-ending stuff afoot. the fact that it wasn't a big deal for Tres Horny Boys to murder whoever got in their way made the NPCs feel less real, less important. meanwhile, in Amnesty, all the NPCs felt so much more real. everyone had ties to other people. "Pigeon Wilson, eh? you Jackie's girl?" in the very first episode sold me, i think. suddenly i care WAY more about Pigeon, because Pigeon has a mom and Duck knows her mom and the whole community feels a lot more real and vibrant. when the stakes are more localized like that, it makes each and every risk they take feel WAY bigger and more important.

    i think they made a really smart choice, using West Virginia as their homebrew setting, because it made all the boys much more willing to ad lib relationships and stuff like that. the lack of rails on the story did leave a lot more loose ends untied than Balance, but i didn't think that was to the detriment of the story. overall i honestly was way more invested from minute 1 in Amnesty than i ever got in Balance.

    also Justin from downtown in the last 15 minutes, bringing me a ship i never even pondered but am instantly into, god damn.
