It reminds me of watching an American movie in France. I was so used to watching subtitled movies that it was almost impossible not to tune out the (English) dialogue and read the (French) subtitles instead.

Geeks are strange.

This. I actually understand Spanish, so between that and the subs I'm ok. But I have to force myself not to look at captions.

Our really heroes put their Stupid Hats on. Sonya for letting Eleanor know she had the ledger. Marco for trying to get to Fausto alone.

Eleanor, incompetent to the end.

I'll miss this show if it doesn't get renewed. I thought season 2 was much better than season 1.

I've never crossed the US/Mexican border. Nobody would give a second look to an obviously wounded guy in hospital clothes limping across the border?

I enjoyed season 2 quite a bit more than season 1. I thought it was a weak finale, whether it's a season finale or series finale. With both Sons of Anarchy and Justified ending this season maybe this one will be brought back. I don't really know what the ratings are but it's a decent show.

I preferred season 2 because it didn't have the usual tv super villain who impossibly outwits everybody that season 1 had.

So sad to see this season end, and I am hoping it will be renewed. The ending, however, did give enough resolution and tying up the storylines if it is indeed the season finale.

The scene between Eleanor and her "father" was .... just outstanding in its sparseness. It seemed to be so true to both characters, even though we didn't know one of them at all other than through the perspective of Franka's character. The viewer is primed to feel sorry for this old, decrepit, nearly naked man in chains, and then his evil nature reveals itself, not through some trick of tv or directing, but just through actions, which is how find out the truth about all people in our worlds.

I'm not saying it's the best tv there is, but I have enjoyed the ride.

There won't be a season 3. The show has been canceled.

That's too bad, but not unexpected. Different show, interesting characters, set in a place that rarely gets air time.

I enjoyed it while it lasted.

I'll be the odd man out. I flat out didn't like season 2. Thought it was incredibly boring. Only reason I stuck with it was because of season 1 and my wife wanted to finish it. Kinda glad I won't have to decide whether or not to try a third season.
