But, this show wouldn't really exist without Tatiana and i continued watching season 2 because of her. It didn't disappoint me, i believe they'll try to mix it up and make it even more interesting, but i expected a little downgrade from a show with this kind of limited ability. If you know what i mean, it will get stale because there is not much you can do about the story which gets more and more confusing over time. But it is worth watching mainly because of Tatiana's talent and i really want her to get Golden Globe!!
oh i don't want to believe they already shot their whole creative ammo!
idk what it was. with season 1, i watched pretty much all episodes a bunch of times. i watched the show when it originally aired and only a handful of people knew about it, so waiting week after week for the next ep annoyed me and after the season was over i did a couple of rewatches with family and friends to get them into the show as well. it never lost its magic.
season 2 i only watched once through and then never again. there was just something about it that didn't draw me in like season 1 did. i don't think it was that season 1 was brandnew and fresh, but something about the writing, i think. it felt more like a caricature of itself than a progression IMO (much like season 2 of girls). it's just the charm seemed gone and it was much more action-oriented than anything else, unfortunately. and the worst: i didn't care for cosima at all :/ after her blood coughing and her "delphine, i'm sick" confession in season one, i was like "NOOOOOOO COSIMA!!"... but throughout season 2 i just cared less and less.
wow, this is looong. anyway, i can't wait for season 3 and see where they take things. and if it sucks even more, at least we have tatiana maslany!
