    Watched the first episode of this, and it was enjoyable. Not that I care, but it got a decent review in the NYT. Has Terry O'Quinn (Locke from Lost) so that's always a good reason to watch :) Premise is, a reluctant spy gets called back into service by his dad who's a head of some intelligence agency (either I missed it or it's unclear as to which agency).

    I love this show! The main character is hilarious. So deadpan, but so many quirky things happen to him. Good to see Terry O'Quinn again (and the guy from Sons of Anarchy too). We are only about five episodes in so far. It can be a bit slow at times, but the payoffs are worth it.

    I've seen three episodes but took a break from it because I have a bunch of other stuff to catch up on and will revisit at some point. I like the show a lot.

    Episode 8 has a scene that I really think I rate as one of the best I've ever seen on television...and another that's darn close.

    Quite the remarkable show once it gets rolling.

    New season dropped today.
    I hate these long waits between seasons.
    I remember I liked it,but honestly I couldn't tell you a single thing about the plot till I watched the recap.

    I hadn't realized how long ago the first season was. I'm in for S2, just have to find the time.

    I love this show. Hope season 3 isnt far off. Season 2 was a crazy ride.

    just finished the whole run. hope they get a season 3.

    Patriot fans have been posting a bunch over in r/television. which lead me to give it a second chance. And while its a bit too quirky at times, its an awesome show.

    Just binged S1 this week. Will get to S2 over the next several days. Really enjoyed it. So different than most shows.
    Just watched Episode 8 (and 9 and 10) tonight. Curious what scene you're referencing (if you can remember from that long ago).

    Been a while, but I assume I meant the scene where John’s sitting outside and in a single take, in-person and phone conversations confirm his plan is all coming together perfectly, and then completely fall back apart again. Not a technological marvel, but I really enjoyed it.

    I have to get back to S2. I think I watched the first episode months ago but never finished. I enjoyed S1

    Bump...I'm just getting into this. 5 episodes in and I love it. Not sure how this missed my radar.
