I'm enjoying season 2 so far a lot more than season 1 since it's more of its own beast, and less blatantly, tediously derivative of the Coens' oeuvre, but I'm still bemused by anyone talking about it as if it's a game changer. It's good, it's very entertaining, there isn't a single weak link in the cast and I'm interested to see how everything will go down. But it still feels more like a fun pastiche than a bold work that can stand alone. It's a hell of a lot better than True Detective 2 (though that's kind of a backhanded compliment, jeeeeeeesus that was bad), but it doesn't touch the best of Coens, Sopranos, Breaking Bad etc. Not even close.
But not everything has to be a masterpiece. I'm still glad it exists and will keep watching. Nothing wrong with a pastiche, just nothing truly great about them either.
