Hmm, after all of the rave reviews, I was slightly underwhelmed. Just seemed to be a lot of people planning to do things, then making random decisions instead of following the plans they'd just made.

Doesn't help that I watched it after Fargo S1 & S2, which at least had humour. It didn't grip me, but it was an interesting premise.

Colour me underwhelmed (so far) I'm two episodes in and a bit bored by the obviousness of the whole thing.

I used to rely on the forums for pointing me towards good shows, but after this and Mr Robot I'm losing my faith lol

We just finished this last night, it took us 4 weeks to get through it because we just found it a proper drag. It feels like it was dragged out over 10 episodes whereas they could have got all of it plus the atmosphere etc into about 3 or 4 episodes. There's just no excitement, no surprises and no likeable characters. I don't know if I'll manage series 2.

Looking forward to this, especially the cameos from Michael McIntyre, Carrott Top and The Chuckle Brothers.

Similar to Series One in a way in that some of the plotting and pacing in the middle is very plodding but I thought the last three episodes in particular ratcheted the tension up nicely. Smith is by far and away the most interesting character while

Just finished Season 2 and like the first absolutely loved it.

I get it's not for everyone but if you liked the first season it continues on nicely.

Enjoyed this but only really because of Obergruppenführer John Smith - the other characters are a bit dull.

Really enjoying season 2, sadly only have 2 episodes left now. It so much better than SS GB (but only seen 1 episode of that)

The show can be a little slow at times but its so well done. Interesting to see how technology changes in show with alternate timelines.

I've had this on my to-watch list for ages, and whizzed through the existing 3 seasons in a couple of weeks.

Although it sagged treading water a fair few times, and suffered from a few too many filler characters (and people suddenly having to go and do something and missing the bus), I really enjoyed it. The main characters are interesting and complex, especially soft spoken nazi Jon Smith's and Juliana's survival instincts.
Oddly, while I usually love mythology shows (although they have a habit of betraying my trust), I found the mythology part of this the least interesting bit. I think it would have worked better as a straight drama, or at least have the films left as unexplained.

Looking forward to season 4 at any rate.

Hey Alexa Davalos was in Angel! Thought I recognised her from somewhere.
