Hey there Figge - taking a break from managing your fantasy footie team ;-)


The first season is very much worth watching, an exceptional piece of television. The second season has some incredible, jaw dropping moments but does slightly morph into 24 half way through and then takes some bizarre twists and turns with regards one of the antagonists.

At present, however, the third season is fucking laughable. There are certain elements that make it just about watchable, but it's like they've sacked all the smart, talented writers from season one and brought in a load of amateurs who don't seem to think that logic and common sense are that important. It's developed so many holes and resorted to some really cheap narrative sleight of hand techniques that are meant to amaze us, but just make us feel cheated, as the set ups are so poorly botched the pay offs feel completely incoherent with regards what's proceeded them.

The problem is that after the climax to season 2 they've pretty much shot their load, and this third one feels like they're scrambling around trying to figure out where to go next. The central premise of seasons 1 and 2 couldn't last forever, and in truth it feels like no one has any clue what direction the show should go in.

But defo watch season 1 and 2 mate.
