I don’t have a TV but enjoyed watching this show when I visited my mom. I liked the characters and agree with your assessment of Root. I hate when the networks cancel the good shows, there are so few of them. The issue of access to knowledge and the ethics of what is done with that knowledge were part of every show I saw. The desire for someone almost superhuman (John Reese here or Robert McCall from The Equalizer) who can help the innocent/naive/unfortunate caught in an “unfair” situation pressed up against the desire for freedom. In my mind there isn’t an easy answer to these competing desires.
