Fuck House of Cards and all the other Netflix series, this is the one. And this season, jesus, is more amazing, deep, tense and moving than ever. Wow.
Talk about going out with a bang. This is an amazing season with one of the best finales ever. Wow.
So, yeah, it's possible to get better with the second album, even if the first one was a masterpiece.
A wonderful send off for a great series. Really, every single episode is amazing and the way it wraps up everything with the final three is... wow.
This is probably the best season of TV I've seen in a very long time. An astonishing bunch of episodes that mixes drama and comedy in an organic, deep, unpredictable and striking way. I've been laughing my ass out while I was crying. Amazing.
What an amazing bunch of episodes. Hilarious, tense, moving, they've got everything and they are incredibly consistent in not letting you forget what a violent piece of shit is the main character, even if he doesn't want to believe it. I can't wait for season three.
The first four episodes are a nice and entertaining warm up, then it becomes fucking amazing for the rest of the season. Fucking. Amazing. Between this and Mindhunter, Netflix is really hitting it out of the park.
Great writing, great performances, gripping drama and a tiny hint of humour. Louis CK is one of the great contemporary authors.
What a beautiful, funny, deep but always light show.
Incredibly well written and acted, it's got an amazing way of subverting cliches and expectations and it's so good at balacing laughs, tension, drama, emotion.
A couple of episodes are a bit flat but honestly that's nitpicking. The main themes of depression, loss, and love troubles are all incredibly well written and thought out, the supporting cast is much more explored than in the past (and with two great episodes devoted to them) and the last four episodes are amazing. Plus, a full episode made only of tracking shots, and not just for showing off, but with great depth in terms of storytelling. If you're not watching this, I can't even... whatever, fuck off.
The first few episodes are honestly sub par, but then the season takes off and gives us a great finale for one of the best series in the last few years.
Yep, still amazing, even as a rewatch.
It takes two or three episodes to get the rhythm but by then the series becomes amazing. Great writing, ambitious direction, a very good cast, nice themes and an actually marvelous actress.
Even better than season one. The level of not giving a fuck and doing whatever it wants is amazing.
How the fuck does this get better and better every year?
Funny, poignant and deep. Another great TV show from the "30 minutes area".
The first half of the season is out of this world, then it loses some momentum (maybe because of the changes on the director's chair) but it's still really, really good. The private life stuff and the way it intersects with work is good, even though sometimes it feels a bit forced/tacked on. The interviews and the investigations are amazing as usual and the Wayne case is treated very well. It also manages to reflect on various issues that are still quite relevant today in a smart way. Overall, though, I have to say that I may be a little biased because I have a young daughter and a whole season 90% based on kids being murdered and/or having issues is quite affecting to me.
I'm amazed at how this stays consistently good. The procedural part, the overall storyline, everything's really great. Plus, the will to reinvent everything and scramble the status quo every single year keeps it fresh. A great show.
A couple of episodes to get the engines running and then simply one of the best seasons of television ever. Much better than the already great season 1. Netflix was finally able to make something comparable to Orange is the New Black.
Poor Boone and Olivia, they didn't know what they were getting themselves into.
What the fuck wow yeah.
Finally a season that fullfills all the potential and is on par with what I've been hearing about this show. The underwater episode and the abortion one are amazing but almost everything is top notch.
How can the best TV show of all get better every year? No idea, but that's what we're witnessing.
The pilot is really amazing and the rest of the series is not on the same level but it's still really, really good, with great characters and a wonderful pair of actors in John Turturro and Riz Ahmed. This is how procedural crime stories should be made.
A really, really good hard boiled detective story, with fantastic performances by great actors, solid writing, the usual iper complex crime tale and - fortunately - a much less pretentious tone and writing style than season one. Sure, it's also less visually stunning and less consistent than season one, with a few really cheesy moments, but I found it overall more interesting and less empty. I guess it's a matter of taste. Oh, by the way, the shootout at the end of episode 4 is amazing and sooo much better than the great, but ultimately masturbatory, tracking shot in season one.
Pulpier, bloodier, campier, more romantic and more fucked up than season one. A beautiful second season, more daring both in narration and visual style. Plus, the native american Mazinger and Julian Sands almost compensate for the loss of the albino guy.
It uses all the most adorable cliches of the action/thriller genre with no shame at all ("They picked the wrong fucking town"), but at the same time it's pretty smart in how it actually manages to subvert a couple of them. It's got a very passionate and romantic drive and it expresses it through violence, while telling a story in which relationships are all based on eruptions of blood. The action is fine, but rarely spectacular in a traditional way. The real entertainment comes in the way Banshee uses insisted violence to express basically everything. And that's the reason why these first ten episodes are really great. Also, the albino guy.
After the disappointing season 5, this is a return to form and a great ending for one of the best series of recent years.
Wow. Just wow. This is funny, deep, full of amazing performances, incredibly smart in how it's able to tackle very tough stuff while balancing lotos of great laughs, some very interesting drama and sudden, amazing moments of thrilling, unbearable tension. The last two episodes are out of this world.
