Planes? Shit, I'm terrified to get in my car now!

Yeah it's just you! A large part of this show is specifically about Elliot's head, and what goes on inside it. Which I think also applies to Angela. For me a lot of this season so far has been about the different pulls on her - deeper into E-Corp and the dead-eyed corporate zombie she could become or drawn more into F-Society and the revenge for he mother that path could afford her.

The best games are always head games and this show is full of them.

Just started this. Literally on the second episode. Slater ain't Brad Pitt and this ain't fight club. But its really fun to watch regardless.

Yeah, I just started watching this yesterday as well.  Still not through the first episode because reasons, but it's one of the more compelling first episodes I've seen in a long time.  Not sure why I put this one off for so long.

Finished season 1. I think I liked it? I don't know. Some of the storylines and filler were just terrible. Which I guess is what happens when you stretch Fight Club out to 10 hours. How could they possibly do a season 2 though?

The stretching gets worse but I'm told I'm in the minority on this one.

It does get better later in the 2nd season.

The other reason I keep watching is that Esmail has already said its only going 4-5 seasons.  I so prefer shit which has an already defined arc.

About halfway through season 2, it must get better because this is terrible.

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

Not sure if you liked the twist, but it got me. I found the slowness of the season worth it just for that.

Just finished season two and enjoyed the ride (and definitely enjoyed the mid-season twist/reveal, though I think they could have tightened up the first half by about an episode's worth of time).  I feel like season one's plotting and placing were more consistent, but while it was much more up and down season two had plenty of great moments.  Hoping season three evens stuff out a bit and explores some new places.

I finally just finished watching season 3. Definitely a show that's kind of lost its way a bit - I don't think they had a plan for what happens after fsociety "destroys the world." The performances and cinematography are what make it continually worth watching. The guy who returns at the end of the finale was the drug dealer from season 1, if you didn't know. I had to look it up to be sure.

Yup agree. Malek is amazing.  Hope they keep it together.
