I actually kind of like it for that reason? Like there was some character development and progression, but the story hadn't really built up to something huge and major, and that's okay?
I mean I can see your point, and you may very well be right. I just don't think it's that kind of a show, or it needs to be.
I guess I kind of compare it to Mission Hill. That show didn't really build up to anything too major, about the only thing would have been Andy confessing his love for Gwen in a never-finished episode. https://youtu.be/tKTGTyxdsoU
