Well, I'm happy to report that the second helping is definitely a step up. The characters feel more rounded and the stories are more engaging.
Unfortunately, just as it was starting to find its footing, I just found out that the show has officially been canceled by HBO, further cementing my ambivalence about getting hooked by TV shows.
So season 2's finale, which was very nice, served as series finale as well, and marked the end of a show that could have been more.
Grade - Season 2: 7
