    Wow, it's hard not to take this personally.

    I mean, I'm sorry if you don't agree with my opinions, but...

    Really?

    Well, I think I speak for all people who became very disappointed in this show when I say that "disagrees with Meagan"≠"jerk."

    But wait! Ever had jerk chicken, etc.? It's great!

    Unlike this show.

    Thanks folks for posting who killed what's-her-name for those of us unable to endure a 2nd season.

    It seems that some people take it personally when someone expresses dislike for a show that they like. Almost like the person who dislikes the show is somehow insulting people who do like the show. I cannot understand or sympathize with that sort of attitude, but unfortunately it does not seem to be a rare attitude around here.

    I enjoyed this season. Not as good as Breaking Bad obviously, but still entertaining.

    Is this show definitely being renewed for a Season 3? I know the two leads are getting hot as film actors, so I thought it might get cancelled.

    According to The Futon Critic, no official decision has been announced regarding its renewal.

    Fine. I apologize. You can disagree as much as you want with me or anyone else. That was not appropriate of me, and I apologize.

    Cool.

    It's nice that we can both find shows we enjoy, even if they're not the same ones.

    I thought the ending with the family watching the video was sweet, and I am probably overthinking this, but I thought it was odd that Stan and Mitch would let the kids watch the video without looking at it first-there could have been anything on that video...like I said, probably overthinking....

    The viewing of Rosie's video made me misty.

    I'd given up earlier in the season but wanted to know how things resolved so I watched the last two episodes. I chuckled when it was still raining and Mitch Larsen was still the most miserable person in the universe. I had to resist ffwding through all of her scenes.

    The acting on this show was always first rate. It was the constant depressing atmosphere and the miserable Larsen family that I hated. Also, the crime should have been solved in one season.

    Didn't Terry find a photo of Rosie in the trunk of the campaign car in Stan's desk a couple of episodes ago? Did I miss something? It seemed like a really odd moment that I had no idea how they would explain.....they didn't....Or did I misinterpret what I was seeing.

    Yeah, it was a police photograph. I don't think the implication was that Stan was the photographer or anything.

    It was supposed to plant a seed that Terry had something to do with it. That was the first time she had seen the result of her actions. I think the actress was trying to look ashamed, guilty, scared, and sad all at the same time.

    And yes, it was just the police photo that was taken from Rosies file by Stans mobster buddy.

    When the chief walked in (and you only saw her) she said "Thanks for dealing with those charges - they were ludicrous" - so Richmond "fixed" her situation for her. Then Ames followed, leaving you to assume he "fixed" his situation as well. Then the look on Gwen's face when she realizes Richmond is just another slimy politician, just like her dad (and JUST as Jamie had accused him). Juxtapose this with the scene where Richmond tells her he is "moving on" and a smile creeped up on her face. She was sure she knew him at that point, but she was proven wrong. Some superb writing and acting. Not much dialog needed when your actors can pull of subtlety like that. Reminds me of The Wire.

    Could not disagree more. I agree with a previous poster that the show used the Rosie Larsen murder as a vehicle to explore the other characters on the show. I felt it was very well done and superbly acted.

    For me personally I do not understand why someone would watch the show religiously for two seasons only to come to this forum to trash it every single week. I know for me if I dislike a show I don't watch it.
