    I believe that the producers said that this season would be more linear...

    I was pondering if it was worth picking up the 3 months of hbo that were being discounted by amazon because I wasn't sure when this was going to start. Might have to think about that.

    I hope so. the problem with these kinds of shows, is that you watch S1, it's hard to follow but you are into the story and stick with it hoping it comes together. Then S2 hits and it's really the same thing. After awhile it becomes too exhausting and I am sitting here wondering if it's worth it, especially with so much else on these days. I'll probably watch (if only because it always looks great, even if the stories are too convoluted and I have a new 65" 4K TV, that this would be great to watch with).

    In this case, they had a great puzzle for the first season, which was resolved. I think they really struggled with how to go on from there. It seems like the third season is a kind of reset (pushing the conflicts of the first two seasons into the futuristic real world), which could be what it needs to get its footing back.

    That's where I'm still stuck, after the 1st season. I keep on forgetting about the 2nd season and to watch it, and when I do remember it, I keep on thinking of something else.

    This is an example of TV trying to be too "smart" for their own good. HBO has been guilty of this more often than other networks. A lot of their shows, have gotten to the point where it takes at least 5 episodes to really understand what is going on, sometimes it takes almost the whole season, and then it's over. So you are watching and hoping it comes together all the while you are sitting there confused and wondering if it's worth it. And as it is I have trouble squeezing in all I want to watch, I feel like why am I wasting my time? HBO has a great track record with their shows so I usually stick with it, but I often wonder if these shows would be better done as a 3 hour movie or whatever.

    ... and then there are the TV shows (mostly broadcast), that are not only so easy to follow, they find it necessary to flashback to something that happened 10 minutes ago, just in case you missed it :)

    Man we are torn about watching another season
    S1 could have ended the show
    S2 really could have ended it
    Really enjoy it but also would be fine pretending that S2 was the end :D

    Loved S1, did not care much for S2. Sophomore jinx? In any case, I'll be there again.

    Thought I post this here.
    As part of the new streaming deal, Hulu will now be the exclusive streaming home for more than 40 past and current FX series, and new episodes of most FX shows will be available to stream on Hulu immediately after they air.

    FX on Hulu is set to launch March 2nd

    I'm torn on this. While I have liked the show, I'm just wondering where they could go for an 8th season. It feels as if the story has been told and anything new will just seem REALLY contrived.

    I'd like them to go down a 'rumors of Mr. Kaplan's death being greatly exaggerated' path and the feud continues. I don't care if that's overly contrived - it's great TV.
