    So glad this show is going to get a third and final season. Season two was fantastic.

    I've been thinking about re-watching this entire series again. That second season was something else entirely. So great.

    Second season was so good, haha and got trippy at the end, which I love.

    I loved every bit about the second season. I think, though, that seeing Justin Theroux again would just piss me off because I'm trying to get in shape and having the damndest time.

    I loved season 2. I am really glad this show is getting a final season so we can all get closure.

    If there's one thing I'm not expecting from this show, it's probably closure if we're being honest.

    Haha I think he was talking more about emotional closure.

    Season 2 was one of the best seasons of television I've ever seen.

    Sub. Season 2 was my favorite season of tv last year, and I'll likely re-watch it at some point this year.

    I'm like 4 in to the second season. Enjoying quite a bit when I am in a mood to be moody.

    Not Kyle Shanahan Prestigious

    Remember on AP when I was gungho about how the show should have ended after 1 season because it wrapped up the narrative perfectly and could only ruin itself from there?

    How dumb was I.

    Very

    Once you get to episode 6 you're not going to be able to turn it off until you're done.

    I've been putting it off until maybe next week because I'm afraid of that. I'm glad I stuck with season 1 just for season 2.

    Season 1 was good but it was too bleak. I appreciated the moments of levity in S2.

    It was definitely a huge leap for the show, to go past what was in the book, but boy did they do it well

    I already discussed the issues I had with season two on the last forum, but I'm excited for next season as well.
