I had recorded the first six episodes of Season 2 and thought it was a bit slow to start off, but I really liked the acting from all of the principal characters. As has been previously mentioned, I was amazed seeing Farrell get shot at the end of Episode 2 so I had to follow up with Episode 3 immediately. I binge-watched the last three episodes last night and now I'm nodding off at work.

One thing I really don't get: why do rich and powerful men all seem to like having sex when other rich and powerful men are in the same room? Doesn't anyone enjoy privacy anymore?

Wow! Tonight's episode was intense!!! So sad they got that dude. Something about seeing my girl crush making out with my man crush, made me a little uncomfortable though. :mishchief:

I think it's 90 minutes long.

Great episode. Actually really enjoying the season
I'd be happy to kill her, she called me a fish.

Meh. Wasn't a fan of this season because the whole 'brooding dark character muttering nonsense meant to sound poetic' thing- it got stale really fast. it only worked as last season because they were self aware of it and had Woody work with that.

that said, Frank's death walk was incredible.

Ditto. The first couple of episdoes and the last couple of episdoes were really good, imo. Everything in between was boring filler. Although, that gun fight was pretty intense. No nudity + no sex = no fun. :D

I liked Season 1 but couldn't get into season 2. I even canceled our HBO subscription mid-season to save some money until Thrones comes back.
The :) means it's all ok.

Season 2 needed some lightheartedness. Just a little woody.
Also. If Colin had died in episode 2 it would have been epic.
