    Looking forward to Season 3.  I had initially dropped it when Season 2 started out very limp, but thankfully I decided to catch back up later and it did get significantly better and topped the first season.

    Nice season premiere. The show knows exactly what it is and executes it beautifully. The ensemble work from Giamatti, Siff, Lewis, Costabile, DeMunn, Strathairn, Dillon, Rashad, Shenkman, Strong, etc., is superb. Looking forward to seeing what J. Clancy Brown does here. I can sense Trump influences here even though his name is never mentioned (just a “new president” or “new sheriff in town” sort of references). Christopher Denham is very interesting to me, as is this slight time jump that could have been handled better. Previews look strong for the season.

    Great episode and pretty timely exploration of the current immigration issue. As strong as Giamatti and Lewis both are, I’m glad to see the supporting cast get more screentime. Asia Kate Dillon is phenomenal. Maggie Siff should have been nodded for every season. And look at Malin Akermam stepping her game up for a change. J. Clancy Brown is as much of a Trump surrogate as we’ve seen on the series yet. Christopher Denham is such a specific actor. I’m glad he found a role like this, b/c it’s not the first actor choice I would have made for Deke.

    I’m interested in seeing how Bobby trades without really trading by using his surrogates. This was a major episode for Ben Shenkman and the first time I found him to be Emmy-worthy. The scenes where Axe turns him in the jewelry store, the opening scene with the fiancée at the fancy restaurant, and the meeting with Deke and Connerty when Ira implicates Chuck and Sr. for the Ice Juice scandal, were all thrilling. Taylor and Wags make a surprising great combo together and very funny. The interview scenes were highlights of the episode for me. Chuck having to circumvent his Trump-stand-in AG is both prescient and sad. J. Clancy Brown is too good playing this role. Not enough Wendy, but she had the line of the night. When Chuck Sr. wanted Wendy to take boxes of Chuck’s childhood awards with her and the kids home, she said, “They won’t fit in the car. I drove the Maserati here. It’ll have to wait.” Ballin’ fucking bitch, and I love it!

    Jeffrey DeMunn was very … vivid in this episode. I’d love to see him get some recognition for his work here, but I guess that sadly isn’t in the cards for any involved. It’s the Emmy’s loss, really. Also bummed that they killed off James Wolk’s character, which is a shame considering the chemistry he had with Maggie Siff in their scenes together last season. Strong work from both Siff and Asia Kate Dillon, who is riveting and can’t miss as Taylor. Really intrigued where this season goes and how far Connerty gets to nailing Chuck and Sr. for their roles in the Ice Juice scandal. Bobby’s just as much at fault in his own way, but one got “caught” while the other one didn’t. It’s gonna get dicey in the coming weeks.

    Pretty big episode for Kelly Aucoin, an actor who’s memorable enough on the show but mostly one-note to me. But now I genuinely want to see where they go with his character next. Finally something for Condola Rashad to do, even in a secondary sense. The Chuck/Connerty battle is heating up, and in an odd way, I’m rooting for them both to succeed? Axe can be an outright street thug when he wants to be, so it was interesting to see how the coersion played out with the doctor witness. Taylor gets a love interest? Didn’t expect that at all, but okay. Less Wendy is never good, but some nice scenes for Maggie Siff. Line of the night was well-placed “L.A. Confidential” reference that I cheered over! Great episode.

    Hands down this is the best show on TV.
