S1 is damn great.
Because of that S2 was bound to suck. I thought there were some ok things in S2 and I get the vibe they were going for. I think had it been set in the 50's it would have been better off.
I heard S3 is adding Deadwood's writer to the staff which has kicked off speculation that it will be set in the 1800's
Oh, Cary Fukunaga is the director of the new "It" movie too.
