So I'm watching this show for the first time this season (except for one episode I saw a year or two ago), and it's good and all, but there's one thing I can't seem to get past--just how connected everything seems to be. Character A knows Character Z, who knows Character B, who knows Character Y, and so on. It's the same problem (or at least one of many) I have with the Star Wars prequels, and to a greater extent, the EU, and to an even greater extent, the crappy SW fanfic. Maybe that makes it easier to tell the story or something--I don't know--but it just makes everything feel real small and unrealistic and soap opera-y.
So is this a reasonable thing to take issue with, or should I just forget it, and enjoy the show for what it is?
