Contrary to D'Addario's inaccurate review, The Village has several actors who are stellar when delivering the lines given to them. Frankie Faison, Lorraine Toussaint, and Dominic Chianese are all seasoned actors who play their characters with nuance, passion and real believability. As a seasoned Drama TV viewer, I have been completely drawn in by their compelling and sensitive character portrayals week to week. Warren Christie, Michaela McManus, Daren Kagasoff and Grace Van Dien as the younger set of actors all are excellent in their roles and ignite the viewer's compassion and interest in wanting to see more of their life-touching life stories. There is something for everyone in The Village as the writing is current, topical and brilliant. The premise of the show is very unique as it explores the varied, complex and intertwining lives of those who live in one single apartment building. All of these lives appear to be quite ordinary until the viewer is given an up close and in-depth view of each character. This is when the character's lives then take on real meaning as the superficial assumptions are peeled away to reveal human beings who we, as the viewers, can all relate to from similar experiences in our own lives. The Village is a Thinking Person's show and takes the time to develop its characters with a fine, full-bodied approach much like a seasoned fine wine. It is a finely written dramatic series that has great potential to go the distance like the award-winning, "This Is Us" TV series. It is also a welcome respite from all the formulaic sitcoms with canned audience laughter that are a bane to most TV viewer's existence. I hope the studio execs realize the brilliance of The Village and green light it for several more seasons. Give us, as the viewers, stellar shows like this so that we are less inclined to watch the non-network channels or surf the net/play video games on our computers. The major networks ratings have been declining for years because TPTB appear to have lost their ability to recognize superior, quality shows like The Village. Do the right thing and renew it for the foreseeable future. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The last episode was the most intense and sentimental episode of any show i have ever watched. All of them had something going on. From Katie going into emergency labor due to her placenta ripping to Patricia who was having surgery for her cancer. Enzo proposed, Ben was grieving for his son, Ron was praying for Patricia, and for the first time in weeks (in the show), Katie allows her dad, who left her mom before he knew she was pregnant 17 years ago, but found out 10 years later and never came back, see her. And the fight between The Village (the apartment complex they all stay in) and Katie ends. Katie also finds new relationship with Liam and they finally kiss. THIS ALL HAPPENED IN ONE EPISODE!!! You would think this would make it seem crowded, but everything going on was so put together that it didn’t seem like it was all packed in, it felt like how it would happen in real life. Expand

I loved The Village and looked forward to it every week. Shame on NBC for cancelling the show. With all the other crap on at night, it was refreshing to see a show like this. Please bring it back!!!!!!!!
