    Just finished Season 2. Watched both seasons over the course of a couple weeks. Looking forward to Season 3.
    Is Ruth going to now feel betrayed that the Byrds are staying and she won't be in charge anymore?
    I assume once Petty is found the Feds will be all over the casino and related businesses.

    I could not believe how many of the supporting cast got knocked off in the last few episodes. What a bloodbath!!!

    This is an entertaining show, but it's also one of the most implausible shows I've ever seen. It's definitely not the kind of plot that holds up to any type of scrutiny. You just have to turn off your brain and enjoy the ride. :)

    Just finished season two. I guess we have to wait for fall?

    I hate that nothing ever seems to go right for them. Also it feels like lots of time is passing but it hasn't even been a year--they've only had one summer season and the kids are still in school. I like that Wendy is feeling different now just like the lawyer predicted.

    . That's how I felt after watching about 6 eps in season 1. I gave up it was just too dark for me.

    Isn't that the whole point of the series? Marty got them into this to keep them alive and they'll only get out of it by keeping at it until they're at the top (and, even then, they'll always be watching their backs). Things can't go right for them because everything they do is wrong (morally and legally).

    This show got more and more ridiculous as it went along, but I can't deny that I still enjoyed both seasons thoroughly. :)

    Interesting twist on this season. I'll avoid spoilers. In any case, at least they are keeping it interesting.

    No crossover I can recall, except Jason Bateman is in both series.

    I swear Jane Lynch could play Helens sister.

    Just finished episode 8 and
    I thought for a moment I knew how Laura Linney’s brother “Hey Babe” wound up in the Psych ward for Love Actually. ;)

    Just finished S3 and I have to say thought it was better than S2. Did not see that ending! And certainly sets up a S4. But no word on that yet.

    Ruth was always the scene stealer, but this season goes to Uncle Ben. The actor was so good. Did not recognized him 'til I googled him. He played Ward Meachum in Netflix's Iron Fist. He was very good in that as well. I still love Ruth.

    The penultimate episode is the best this season and felt like a movie to me. It is very dark and tragic. Laura Linney was phenomenal. Here's hoping for a S4.

    This was a very good season. Uncle ben truly conveyed the mania and depression of bi-polar syndrome. Bottom line---he was the only character to come right out and say "this is wrong" "what (insert name) is doing is just wrong" and he was right about so many of the wrongs going on in this show. The kids are not supposed to be ok with murder and crime and money laundering. Somehow the Cartel guy knew the lawyer was planning on killing Wendy and Marty. So he blew her head off. Uncle Ben would say "that is wrong!".

    I did not see it that way. The lawyer was setting up Marty and Wendy with the documentation she was bringing and expected the Cartel to take them out but Marty trumped her by saying he had gotten the FBI on board to take out his opponent. Marty also indicated I believe that Helen was causing problems to him. It was pretty clear the Cartel guy knew who was more valuable to him.

    Finished up S3 last night. Great season. Marty is always such a cool character, fazed by nothing. But Ruth is my favorite...some great one liners from her.

    That ending was kind of startling - definitely did not see that coming.
