I felt that in Season 1, we knew right out the gate what the overall story was going to be about, "to find the killer." What's the overall story with this season?

The overall corruption of the city. The character development of the 3 cops and a casino owner. The death of a government official. Am I missing something? Imo, none of these make for great overall stories for this season.

Thanks for posting this, holy shit the opener blew my mind! It isn't the same as last season by I am intrigued by each character's story so far.

I'm interested in seeing where it will go. I just watched it again and felt that it was a little better the second time around, however I do still think that the director is having a real disconnect with the tone of the writing.

Felt very much like a "Here's all the characters"-episode, since the roster is larger this time around. I think they did a good job giving a nice overview of each character. This was more of a episode 0 than anything else. It'll get into the meat soon. The character interactions and story development.

I'm going to give the story time to settle in, I am loving Collin Farrells character though.

I really wasn't all that impressed with it. It ranged from being pretty dull in parts to being completely over the top in others. Like you said, I didn't feel that hook the way I did when I watched the first episode of season 1. From what I saw last night I don't have high hopes for season 2. I hope Im wrong.

Really hoping it turns around in the next couple of episodes. Did you find it hard to follow at all? I feel I had a pretty good sense of the story overall, although I did notice some chaotic scene cuts and a bit of confusion until about 20 mins in.

Yeah it was a bit hard to follow. The thing was that they spent so long showing us how fucked up all of the different characters are, because thats just so interesting /s, that the sense of suspense and mystery around the main event was kinda lost.

That was the main hook for season 1 for me. The sense of mystery and suspense was laid on super thick from pretty much the first scene and it never let up.

Sure not much really happened, they spent basically the entire episode establishing everyone's background and character. I was kind of expecting that though, and I'm fine with it, it seems like it's setting up to be a pretty interesting story. I love the cast this season too, idk I have pretty high hopes, but we'll see.

Absolutely LOVED the imagery during Ray and Antigone's drive.

"We get the world we deserve"- followed immediately by them driving through the oil refinery with the refuse spouts blazing high into the sky.
