This is such a great weird show and I hope it gets picked up for another season again, I enjoy it so much. The scene with the kid and Harry sass talking each other was so good. All of the secondary characters are great, and Astra with her affection for Harry mixed with her very real grief, ahh.

I loved Harry's 'Lennie Brisco' suit -- so baggy.

I wasn't convince about season 1 until a few eps in then I fell in love.

The first half of this ep got me concerned, but the Harry trying to shut down a baseball game got me grinning and kept me there. Effective pacing for the second half.

... and how badly Harry wore it because he isn't naturally human-shaped; nice bit of visual storytelling.

I'm still fond of the octopode.

I just love this show and all of its characters. New ep was a bit weird with the mayor and his wife...what the heck is happening with them?

Mrs. Ber and I love this show so much it's frightening. I am looking forward to the octopus taking up residence in Harry's cabin.

We were worried it would not live up to the first season, but were pleased it seemed to do that.

The mayor and his wife, last season they invited the MiB's over for dinner and caught them snooping in Max's room and out of them. I figure the parental instinct coming out that violently released all kinds of chemical signals for protecting/making more cubs, as it were, so mama bear and papa bear are super horny for each other.

Someone start a new thread! We just watched tonight's episode and I have lots of notes, and two good questions.
