I didn't mind this season. May have helped that I watch during lunch while also browsing other sites, so I am not sitting there watching each scene.

Billy Bob Thornton has a real twisted side to his personality, and I suspect he was the one who came up with the twisted over-the-top amputee theme and the knifing in the groin by the Chinese woman.

I was disappointed that Marisol didn’t get arrested.

I really enjoyed watching the character Patty, she has gotten stronger and funnier since
the first season.

In some ways I think S2 storyline was very real. The drug cartels are a huge threat and they are sick bastards who have gotten their tentacles into everything, especially in California.
The fetishism was...strange. Not sure why they did that other than to make it more interesting than just the huge numbers of regular killings and executions perpetrated by drug cartels. That kind of violence has been depicted a lot already so maybe they felt people were inured and wanted to try something different? Or maybe these are rumours of real characters that are out there.

I enjoyed S1 one a lot. Not so much S2. Its not just the fetish sex and violence but also the story line seemed a bit all over the map. The kidnapping in Mexico, then the travel to Mexico to see Gabriel...? I also would have preferred a storyline that ended Marisol. An unrealistic happy ending but I would have enjoyed it.

Hmmm. I've really liked both seasons. We've got 1 more episode in season 2 to go.


I used to not give much thought to Billy Bob Thornton, one way or the other, but I'm really liking him in this role. I could crush on him a little.

We binged watched S1 and S2 this past week. S2 was over-the-top ridiculous with totally unnecessary amputee porn scenes. BMc character did not match his S1 character. Guess he was drunk the entire season with not a moment of clarity. Thumbs way down!

DH and I liked season 1, but we struggled to watch season 2 until we mutually gave up on it about halfway through.

Season 1 was incredible, Season 2 was unwatchable. In Season 2 the story was idiotic especially with him escaping from Mexico, so far fetched. The writing on the first season was excellent and the second was amateur hour. Looks like they couldn't decide what to do. They left the whole thing hanging, with a stupid ending and everything unresolved. The protagonist in Season 1 was William Hurt who IMHO is one of the great actors of our time, the second season had Manuel Garcia-Rulfo who is a fine actor but certainly not in Hurt's class at this point. One a scale of 1-10, Season 1 9, Season 2 1. Not sure what changed from 1 to 2 but it went from Gold to Lead
