Still trucking along. Just solid episode after solid episode.


Finally caught up. Just amazingly solid for me. I don't know that he wanted to that's the problem.

He joined for the cause but the number one was always running away into the sunset. Moscow would be hard yards and he likes his perks/weed. Amazing tv, I kinda agree with Haemish about the relationship thing but at the same time I empathise with both sides mistakes and decisions.  Heart

Great season finale. A really, really solid first season of a show.

The whole season just fucking killed. I can't really find much to bitch about at all. Just solid from start to finish.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Finale was really damn good. It kept the tension up to a point where you weren't sure where it would end, but left enough threads for next season (if there is one - anyone hear anything?).

It was renewed for a second season back in February. We're good for now.

Glad I checked it out because of this thread, really great show.  I really like that the time period involved also means that mobile phones are incredibly rare and nobody knows shit about DNA.

This has been renewed for another season miraculously. And if you're not watching, what the fuck is wrong with you? Between the gut-wrenching, "why are we not normal?" scene from last night and the following Eddie Murphy SNL reference, this show continues to absolutely kill.

This season especially has been kind of a slow build-up which might not be appealing to some people, but to me the payoff is well worth it.  I agree, last night's episode was amazing.

I think this might be my favourite thing on TV at the moment. Incredibly tense, brilliantly done, love it.

It's an extremely difficult show to just tune into. Unless you've been watching from the beginning, and actually paying attention, you're going to be lost.

Hell, even during a single episode, if I space out for a couple of minutes, I'm going to be confused within the next couple of scenes. It actually takes effort to watch, but it's definitely worth the effort, IMO.

I had the entire season stored on my Tivo and kind of binged it over the last week. Damn. What a fantastic, fucked up season. It feels like they have to be building to an ending, an ending that will not be good. I'm hoping it doesn't go on too long like Sons of Anarchy.

Agreed, I hope they decide early on that next season will be the last. I'd hate to see it do a Deadwood.

That is my hope as well make a final decision on the end point and finish this up I would hate if this show ends just hanging with no completion and I also don't think it would do to well being dragged out endlessly.

I was personally hoping they'd make it to Glasnost and then be stuck wondering what the hell to do.

But I'm an asshole.

I watched the first season as it was airing and loved it, but never got around to season two until recently...and now it's sort of boring me. I might restart from the beginning to reimmerse myself, since it's still getting glowing praise here.
