liked it

I liked this, but it was actually a bit disappointing. I'll admit that may be mostly due to my expectations, but after reading the promotional material, I was kind of expecting a sequel or companion piece to "Wimbledon Green" in content moreso than just in execution.

Where Wimbledon Green is full of adventure, and walks a great line between fussy and funny, this is just... Well, it's literally like taking a sort of boring tour of a sort of interesting place. There's really no "story" here, and since I really have no concept of what's fiction and what's fact, it doesn't even serve as a departure point for a deeper investigation of potentially interesting material.

I still love Seth, and I'm excited to read anything new he releases, but here he maybe went a bit too much towards the margins for my tastes. It still looks great, but that's most of what I got out of it.
