I really enjoyed the premiere. I did not finish the first season at first, so when I heard that this episode was released, I watched them all to catch up. The season two premiere was much better than season 1, and I liked season 1. Great acting, great directing, decent writing. I enjoyed seeing Danny Strong show up. Also, Maggie Siff was once again great. Hopefully this shows awards chances can materialize on the awards front for acting. The performances are definatley awards worthy.February 12, 2017 at 8:39 am #1202008676

Maggie Siff is definitely the highlight of the series, for me.February 19, 2017 at 9:17 pm #1202016189
Premiere was stellar. The show hasn’t missed a single beat since last season. Can’t wait to see where they’re going with Rhodes vs. Axe, Round 2!February 22, 2017 at 3:33 am #1202018345
Just watched 2×02 and it’s even better than the premiere. I’m glad Danny Strong appeared in more than just one episode.February 23, 2017 at 2:29 pm #1202019955
This is pretty great, loving it so far !February 26, 2017 at 4:02 am #1202022599

The conspiring forces against Chuck angle is intriguing as a contrast to how the same sort of approach was taken for Axe last season, and we know how that turned out. Both Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis were excellent. I’m also really liking that non-gender conforming intern prodigy character who’s stealing scenes left and right from everyone involved. Glad that David Costabile is getting a “high” level of screen time this season. Maggie Siff always wows, so please don’t sideline her! Iffy about Malin Akerman as usual, but that’s more about her character’s perceived relevance more than anything else. Danny Strong has been a hoot so far as well. Hope he sticks around for more episodes.February 28, 2017 at 9:48 am #1202026068
I love Danny Strong in this. I hope he has a big episode so he can get a guest nomination.February 28, 2017 at 9:56 am #1202026076

I’m loving this season, but I tend to love shows that place emphasis on “cat and mouse games” (this series reminds me of the male-version of “Damages,” and “Damages” was one of my favorite series).
