    I just watched the first episode of the second season. I felt like the characters were old friends I missed and got to see again. The episode looked and sounds great and the stories are interesting. I'll watch one a day to make them last.

    Can't wait to watch!
    Do they do any kind of a recap at the beginning of the episode, or do I need to go watch some of Season 1 again? Hard to remember the major story lines.

    Comin' Home Baby by Mel Torme! I grew up with the wonderful Herbie Mann instrumental version of this great song. We wore that cassette tape out.

    I've never heard of this show until very recently. It seems it is set in Dallas? Not totally sure if season 1 was or if there was a different setting.

    I binged the first season last weekend and couldn't wait to get into season 2. I watched the first couple of episodes and thought that this was a show I might actually be able to get my wife to watch with me so we watched the first episode of season 1 last night and she sat through the whole thing. Funny thing is that I had thought I had already seen the entire first season previously, but when I watched the 2nd episode I realized that I had only seen the 1st episode and never got back to it. I'm glad I decided to go back and check it out to see the rest of the episodes. It's been a fun ride so far. Looking forward to seeing the rest of season 2 and hopefully more.

    This show is so good that my 14 year old son gave up two nights of playstation games with his friends to binge watch it with me and my daughter.

    I've been binging on early seasons of the Trailer Park Boys and was surprised when I realized that Trina was played by a very young Ellen Page. She was literally just a little kid when she did this show, but she looks so young anyway she could have been about 15 or so, but I'm guessing a bit younger than that.

    I liked season 2 but I have the same criticism as I had with season 1: I'd have been happier with around 80% less Klaus. The Klaus-centric scenes just draaaaaaggg.

    I'm willing to accept that Number 5's space-time shenanigans left him in the body of his younger self. It's sci-fi so I accept the weird. What I have a hard time accepting is that he seemingly can't change out of his childhood Umbrella Academy uniform. Yes, the uniform adds an element of fun to the show but it's still illogical even for sci-fi.

    HAve we ever learned Number 5's real first name?

    Angus Young may disagree. :D
