    I watched an enjoyed season 1. Is season 2 worth it ? Does it wrap up or does it leave things hanging in an unpleasant way ???

    Season 2, as I remember it, kicks it up a notch from season 1. It moves quicker, especially at the end. It does come to a resolution, but somewhat open ended to continue if the show was picked up.

    It's been awhile since I've watched it, though.

    And yes, I'd recommend watching!

    ABSOLUTELY. In my opinion-it's one of the best seasons of TV ever. Bar none.

    It is satisfying-BUT it does leave you hanging.

    Yes, it was much better than season 1 and IMO ends in an appropriate spot.

    The show was kind of depressing for me to watch....

    But it was well written / shot / put together.

    Absolutely, one of the best shows of recent years, though there seems to be some disagreement about whether the ending brought things to an appropriate degree of closure. I'm on the side of those who say it left us hanging (and I thought the Sopranos ending was absolutely perfect!)

    absofrickenloutly it's worth watching.
    In fact in places Season 2 is better then Season 1 since we think we know the characters.

    I have both seasons in my "must watch again" list after the new season calms down, to this day one of my favorite series.. ever.

    I agree with the statements above. Season 2 was very good. I think it ended at the right time though.

    I found the second half of season 1 really dragged somewhat, as it seemed like they decided to stretch things out when it got picked up for the second season. However, season 2 was quite good. That said, while they did wrap some things up, I was still yelling at the tv in disgust at how they left it hanging, knowing that I wouldn't see more. If you liked season 1, I think you'll definitely like season 2. (And personally, I'd say season 2 was better than 1).
