Velcoro really fucked up. Wish we got more of Nails. I'm glad I don't have to hear that singer anymore. The cops shooting the black captain was :lol: . Nice work there.

Biggest issue was how the hell was Velcoro's phone battery still on 100% after that chase?

Cell service in California is shit. I think Frank became my favorite character the last few episodes. RIP Frank and Stan.

Cascading betrayals?! He literally pizza'd his own butt this season and we all watched it. Vaughn actually comes out of this unscathed somehow. He played the trapped 'rat' perfectly. See what I did there?

Overall the show was alright. I almost gave up it when I went on vacation for 3 weeks. Then I decided to watch it after all, and the later episodes engaged me enough that I marathon-ed what I missed. Had the show cut out all that odd little silent staring moments during dialogue than the finale would not have needed an extra half hour. So, yeah, again overall it was fine. Not worthy of licking season one's ass, nor do I think it a show that needs a third season, but I'd watch next year.

So I counted Chinatown, LA Confidential, and the kicker, the end of the first Terminator this season.

The vultures chasing Frank was a nice touch, Frank getting harrassed by Run D.M.C. was even better.

One might argue that that's a fair assessment, yes.

I enjoyed this season but it didn't touch the first in terms of quality. I think Nic Pizzolatto needs to not write the third season and give someone else the opportunity to create a story but keep the mood/general darkness of the series. Maybe bring back Fukunaga. Maybe not.

no...it does not fucking suck...are there dumb fucking moments? sure. is it too heavy for its own good? maybe.

but it is BETTER than season 1.

it went for the best grand slam of all time and...maybe hit only a... triple...but at least it tried.

I enjoyed every fucking minute of season 2...and it'll be a shame if twitter cunts and internet fucking bullshit kill it at 2

Nothing in Breaking Bad was as terrible as the Birdman. "I AM THE BLADE" :lol: :wank: :nopizza: And dumping Caspere's body for the lulz. And incest. :roll:

i think if you're looking for more "cop" shows sure, but TD season 1 was it's own entity. it had a mystical take to it which gave it life beyond cops n bad dudes, that sense of awe in what the flying fuck was going to happen from episode to episode. there was no weird neo-nazi kidnapper in a gas mask lurking around. it was simpler and that worked for Pizzolatto.

you must be kidding...season 2 had real life mysticism...

the whole thing was mystifying...a city built on corruption...and no way out...

no decent person lives except as a wave goodbye...

he's telling you the gutter truth about our world while entertaining you...

I would've ended it differently though:

There was some goofy, stupid shit and horrible acting this entire season but that cinematography and creepy score were top notch.

I busted out laughing when he said that.

I was hoping they'd kill Ray's son by a sniper while Ray looked on, just cause you don't fuck with Black Mountain.

You can't even blame the actors because they weren't working with prime material. Pizzolato needs to hire a co-writer for season 3.
