It's a lot to take on, but it's starting to come together.
Season 2 was my favorite. I may be the only person who says that but I think they did one heck of a job of character development in that season. I don't know why they decided to go in that direction for season 2. It was a deviation from the other seasons.
There are a couple of things I didn't quite like with the series. But overall it was a fantastic watch.
