I swear, Season 2 of this series is one of my favorite 'films' of 2017.  It's more engaging and entertaining than most of the "top-rated", "universally critically acclaimed" films of this year.  Top-notch performances and production values.  (Netflix spent an entire fuck-ton of money on it, so it should.)

If you're that bored halfway thru Season One, then you might as well move on to something else.  Seriously.

I'm on record as loving this series, and now I'm even more stoked to see Olivia Fuckin' Coleman as Liz in Season 3!

It's like a reveal for a superhero suit.
