Loved the first season, watched 3 episodes of the second one and thought it went down hill pretty quickly. I'll watch the entire thing soon enough.

My uncle had a long lingering illness. One day my aunt rubbed him all over with lard. He went downhill pretty quickly after that.

I gave up in series one. I couldn't cope with the monotonous, impossible to hear dialogue.

Yeah, Malek can be tough to hear some times. Then again I'm one of those weirdoes that likes subtitles while he watches shows.

Season 2 finally started a few weeks back. Still enjoying this very much. Sometimes goes over the same ground a bit too often, but is doing enough to keep me entertained.

I need to get season 2 on DVD, it's disappeared off the network. I was able to watch about 5 eps of it before it vanished. Not as good as sseason 1, but I do want to see the rest.

Waiting on ep 5 next week. I'm gonna keep with it, too invested not to.

I’m on season three episode 4. I’m addicted to this. I absolutely love it. I thought season 2 was head fucking sensational.

It was all I could do not to buy a can of spray paint and climb up on all the billboards and spray an "O" at the end of the title.

Gave up after four episodes of season one. Mumbled dialogue was one reason, as was the lack of empathy for any of the lead characters. But the main problem for me was the plot and waiting for something interesting to start.
