What a performance by Jennings! What a vision of the splendor in the regular! And Lodge 49 was beautiful - is, darn it, is beautiful!

It's in the episode's sense of finality where a wealth of meaning makes this one of the most poignant Lodge 49 episodes yet.

The show is full of sly signs, portents, and odd, incidental details that end up paying out many episodes later.

Somehow the actors and writers throw equal parts of mundane reality into a bowl of bizarre and whipped the combination of reality and fantasy into a cream thick enough to hold up. It feels right and not quite right at the same time.

Lodge 49 has big ambitions - it's a series primarily about why American society feels like it's coming apart at the seams, after all - beneath its easygoing sensibility.

What comes next is a series of strange and fascinating tableaux which, although I'm happy to let this beautiful show just wash over me, I couldn't resist pausing and rewinding in order to make sense of the iconography.

Lodge 49 is a show that's all over the place and yet feels elegantly and confidently arced, rather than haphazard. It's silly and profound, deep and frivolous.

A country-hopping, plane-transcending hangout with individuals of boundless depth.

For viewers who are tuned to that distinct wavelength, Lodge 49 continues to be a unique gem whose continuation during the age of Peak TV is nothing short of a miracle itself.

Lodge 49 is both whimsical and pragmatic, a cacophonous collection of divergent ideologies that through some bewildering alchemy not only works but thrives.

There is something quiet and nice about a show that is, well, quiet and nice.

If Lodge 49 often seems to be about nothing, it also manages to say a lot about everything: hopes and dreams and disappointments, and finding reasons to go on when there doesn't seem to be much point.

The show's second season pushes its story to new heights, but on top of the engaging mystery and lovable characters, Lodge 49 is a wonderfully funny series that wields a strange, dark wit for big laughs.

Jim Gavin's show is yearning, idiosyncratic, and sleepy to a fault, a sun-baked couch nap that cares deeply about its charming extended cast of characters.
