Did anyone else make it through to the end of the season? I thought it improved a bit once they got away from the courtroom subplots. I don't know if I'll pick it back up next season though -- it was so effectively creepy sometimes that it was unsettling to watch.

Watched them all. It has been a little uneven script-wise but the acting has been really good. I think that the full Satanic Conspiracy that will have to make up much of next season will be a harder balance for them to walk. I feel that this is one of the kinds of shows that either starts truly shining its second season or just fades away.

I did watch the whole season, I could not tell you why!

>all of those mind teasers are intentional to a) make a fun experience and b) make an experience you’d want to return to.<

Quote above from Robert King. However I did not find the show or its "teasers" fun; and, I am not sure why I kept returning to the next episode. For explanation, perhaps? Explanation was not forthcoming.

I found many of the characters unlikable, irritating. I am frequently infuriated by their actions, even those of characters I like. If the goal of the Kings is to provoke, they are certainly provoking me.

Still I am awaiting a second season . Go figure! ::eye roll::

I've only seen 2-3 eps and the previous post seems exactly on the spot. Go figure! ::eye roll::

(or does the rolling eyes mean the poster is possessed, is the show actually.... oh noooo)

I enjoyed this season, mostly for its willingness to throw everything at the wall to see if anything sticks, plus I like the cast.

I just watched this on Netflix and liked it a lot. Seems like mefi felt differently pre-quar, but this week it perfectly scratched my housebound rainy day itch.

Michael Emerson is always delightful to watch, Mike Colter is immensely likable and handsome, Katja Herbers is great, and omg Christine Lahti! I like the weird horror/black comedy tone and the ambiguity of the supernatural elements. Sometimes the horror really is just systemic racism.
