5.0 out of 5 stars Winslet Day, 5 Aug 2014
Kate Winslet has become the unsurpassed poster girl for small town Americana ; quite an achievement for a Brit. Of course it all started with Titanic, the rebellious heiress falling in love with small town Jack.

A stroke of allegorical genius using the music of Gounods Faust as a background motif, while W.W. faces the Schwartz's for the final episode- undeniably the most addictive series I've ever had the pleasure to view. Although I am still grappling with the thought that Season 4 would have been a satisfying conclusion , as Season 5 seems to take the viewer on a 'what if' , darker journey- gripping to the last.
