Yeah, season 2 good.  Really hope that (a) this goes for at least another season and (b) next season goes in a totally different direction from time travel doomsday shenanigans.

I really enjoyed S2. But it didn't leave me wanting more to the degree that the first one did.

Wife and I love the kid who plays Number 5. Something about his mannerisms and tone/cadence.

His motivation in every scene is always "I'm too old for this shit".   awesome, for real

They all do a great job with their individual baggage.

I am interested to see how well they handle that with the father guy next year. The scenes with him were a highlight this year.

I was so amazed that he still looked exactly the same in season 2 that I had to check he was actually a kid, not some babyfaced adult. He does an incredible job of seeming to be a real, jaded fiftysomething inhabiting a kid's body.

Knocks it out the god damn park. Even the weakest storyline is leagues better than most shows entire season.

No and I hope they never do.

He was a board member, of course.

I felt like Season 2 wandered a bit, and didn't feel like it really worked.  As for hoping that Time Travel will not pay a part in Season 3... good luck.  That is the only way to fix the problem introduced at the end of Season 2.  

2020 will be the year I gave up all hope.

I'm curious to see what they changed exactly - It sounded like the dad was opposed to killing Kennedy the whole time and Kennedy died in the 'real' timeline so that doesn't seem to have been it, unless it was just him being pre-warned about all this crazy business.

I didn't enjoy this season as much as the first but it was good, fun and well acted. Luther stuck between old/young and young/old 5 was really great and I quite enjoyed the poor Swedes.

His relationship with "mom" was ruined. I imagine she had a very profound effect on his concept of humanity. Enough, that even if they didn't have a real lasting relationship, he created the android version of her to be there for the children.

Less love, more bitterness and alienation (hyuk hyuk). Should be a fun group.

Not to mention the fact that he viewed all his "children" as failures and clearly needed to adjust their upbringing to be much harsher.

Decided to take a break from watching anime (finished The Dragon Prince S3, now to wait for more!) and started watching this last night.  Only one episode so far but that was a pretty damn good one for someone who's not read the comics.  Feels like a nice, dysfunctional family, all come together for a funeral, and it feels real with how the siblings all get along.

That dance scene was perfect though!

I finally watched both seasons of this and I loved it. There were some uneven parts but overall, I really dug it. Then I read the comics and...

Wow. The TV show is like someone was told a plot synopsis of the comic, took those really broad strokes and fleshed it out. I actually prefer it, though there is something charming about the way over the top pulpiness of the comic. But really, they are just two entirely separate stories that share some commonalities.

Season 3 confirmed (not a surprise, they signed to pay for two more after the first).

Took me longer than planned but I finished S2 this past weekend and now I have to wait for S3 to see how they fix the timeline.  I really did enjoy S2 quite a bit, it felt like a slice of life show that brought everything together at the end and yet...  Do we know if Pogo is still around in the new timeline?
