I really, really liked the first season. I was always intrigued and anticipating for the next episode.
Second season is straight horseshit in my eyes. They've taken a bunch of cliches and threw them together. No gusta...
I actually agree with all the cliche stuff, BUT they do a good job at executing. At times you don't even see them coming because they set them up properly, and when they do come they do a good job at executing them that they don't feel as cliched.
Does it get any better after the first couple of episodes? I watched the first two when they debuted and the show sort of reminded me of Twin Peaks except that this show was complete sh*t. Seemed like they tried too hard.
