I'm 3 episodes in. So far it's pretty good, just as action-packed as S1, though it does get off to kind of a slow start. Not liking the villain so far, he's a bit annoying and reminds me of Diamondback from Luke Cage. Definitely interested in seeing how the rest of the season goes though.

Jigsaw/Billy Russo? I liked him in season 1.

No, not him, though he does show up in eps 2 and 3. The main villain is a different guy, I think his name's Pilgrim or something. :thinking:

Yeah, pretty brutal at times. But pretty good in general. I enjoyed it. Too bad there's not gonna be another season.

The John Pilgrim stuff kind of just seems thrown in their as a reason to get the plot moving, the character himself didn't really amount to much. It just seemed like they were trying to jumble lots of threads together. It didn't feel cohesive to me, just hodge podge. But I can see how each thread adds to Frank's character development.

Yeah Pilgrim was just nowhere near as fascinating of a character compared to Billy Russo IMO. The Bible-thumping, especially, was really irritating to me. Really jarring hearing him quote some random Bible verse right before punching a guy in the face 15 times lol.

Welp they finally made it official: all of the Marvel Netflix shows are canceled. Disney better pick up at least one of them or I'm gonna be pissed. But at least JJ still gets a S3 though.

BSG Season 2. I'm gonna say it, we make TV shows better than we used to.

There's way too much starting the episode with some exciting cliffhanger, then going "48 hours earlier". Also one episode had two commercial breaks with the SAME CLIFFHANGER because we had traveled back and forth in time to the same spot. Jeez, BSG. You guys liked Memento. I've also been nitpicking character inconsistency between episodes because of different writers. In Black Market, Apollo tries to have a father-daughter relationship with the child of his hooker, then just straight up murders someone, and afterwards everything just kind of works out, lol.

I overall agree, tv is at a much higher and consistent level now. However BSG will always hold a great place in my heart. Also why I never want to rewatch it and risk ruining my thoughts of it.

In all fairness even the fact that most shows now don't need to worry about the commericals and base little cliffhangers off them, not to mention that with most streaming services then entire need to an episode ending cliffhanger is gone also as you don't need to try hook ppl to come back next week as the next episode is always available. Helps with pacing and structure of shows.
