I think TTGL has 3 layers. 1) A foregrounded, somewhat crude, message, 2) a series of clear but not explicitly stated parallels and concepts like the nature of the “bad guys”, 3) subtext (mainly genre based). I quite like the way that rather than hammering in the “bad guys have humane motivations” angle, they had it in a position which was apparent but not clumsy - impacting on the shows meaning more than its story. It’s that sophistication in its writing which makes me admire TTGL.
