Season 2 opens seconds after season 1 ends, with Gus and Mickey at the gas station where they first met.

I am watching this show 100% for Mickey. She actually seems like she's trying to change and become a better person. Gus on the other hand ...

I actually just finished the first season on Thursday and I didn't know there would be a second season. So it was like magic! there was and I'm actually glad because ... there are answers I need. I still hope the second season goes in a different direction.

I think this episode was a good move toward what I'd like this show to be but we'll see (I've watched through 2.3 at this point).

I watched this episode but I don't know if I will continue. Gus is just so painful to watch, and while I get that it is an intentional artistic choice, he is nails on a blackboard to me.

Watch for Mickey, not for Gus, seems to be the rule for this season.

Big points for leaving Mickey's issues at the forefront, while presenting them as not easy to solve. She really likes Gus, but is messed up and should do X, but, but, but...This season is either gonna be really brutal or really mundane.

This show breaks me every single time. Season 3 was just released and I don't think I'm in the right frame of mind to watch it, but I have a feeling that I'm going to ignore what's good for me and watch it anyway.

Really enjoyed this season, I don't watch for Gus or Mickey, it's all Bertie for me. She needs a spin-off.

I binge-watched this show because I was sick over the last couple of days. Cringe-worthy from the beginning (I am at Season 3, Episode 2), but I watched because it reminds me of the darkest period in my life when I lived in LA (1990-1995) -- and I laughed when Gus listed all the catastrophes that occurred in LA in the early 90s, but he left out a bunch. How hard it was to make friends; how everyone I met lived 45 mins away from me (Had some friends in Silverlake too); how if you weren't in "The Industry" you weren't worth speaking to, let alone dating. Now I am watching for closure even though I dislike everyone but Bertie (On second thought, I also like Kevin and all of the Springwood neighbors -- Chris & Randy are too dumb to dislike). I was thinking last night that I would watch Claudia O'Doherty in just about anything.

I get that Mickey has a challenge in the form of her addictions, but she's still a habitual liar with a hair trigger who is cruel, and uses sex as a weapon. Gus is annoying, but he is seldom (ever?) mean -- so far. So I don't get the Mickey love.
