Pretty cool how they used the Saint of Killers comic book mini-series in parts of the library/study montage.

Just watched the first 3 eps of season 2 last night. Definitely a much better start than season 1 and I'm all in on this. I only read parts of the comics so idk if it's accurate or not, but either way... such a fun show.

It's kind of like Walking Dead, in the sense that it's not entirely accurate, and it doesn't really try. But it's familiar and faithful enough to be appealing to comic readers like myself while also being good television.

I think its been handled a lot better than TWD, also this has a definitive end and it's cool to see pieces come into place.

It helps that the 3 main characters have a ton of charisma. Hell, even the saint of killers, who says all of 10 lines, is played by an established actor.

This season definitely feels different than the first. I read that those involved wanted to ease viewers into this universe, and now the reins are loose so to speak.

This week's ep was amazing, I thought. Enjoyed the addition of the Japanese soul traders.

Caught up, I'm still a solid "meh" compared to the first season. So many more intriguing characters in Annville with great sub-plots.

How the hell can Cassidy be so old and not know French? Wonder what he's going to do re: Dennis. Can't find any spoiler sites on this show.

Really good episode. The scene with the preacher in Eugene's hell holodeck had me laughing.

A lot of filler, Starr or no. I stand by my earlier statement, nowhere near as interesting as the first season. I feel like I'm holed up in that dingy apartment with them, not going anywhere.

I'll give it one more episode, then I'll decide if I want to continue. This last episode sucked.
