    Thoughts on season 2? I have one more episode to go. Seems to have moved slower than the first season.

    Thoughts on season 2? I have one more episode to go. Seems to have moved slower than the first season.

    It did seem to move a little bit slow especially with 3 main characters being spread out all over the place. Finale was really good.

    Very good finale. Julianna basically saves the world.

    Did anyone else know Smith was an American soldier before? I thought he was German all along

    Yeah, I always assumed he was a soldier or a cop or something like that before the war. Assumed that him and his family had been in the US all along.....no German accent or anything. Smith is definitely the most compelling character on the show.

    Good to know! I was just thinking about this program yesterday wondering when season three would be released.

    I haven't read the book, but found the show to be thought-provoking and felt that the attention to detail was cool.

    All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it.

    I will still watch but when I realized there was a sci-fi component it really bummed me out.

    The sci-fi component, while a major theme, isn't really prevalent throughout the show. I mean it is....but it's always like it's lurking in the background. You don't feel like you're watching a typical science fiction show. If it did, I wouldn't be watching it. Give it a whirl.

    Finally!  Will be almost 2 years since the last season came out.  I read that there have been a lot of behind the scenes issues with showrunners, writers, etc. which caused such a long delay.

    It has also been renewed for season 4 already too, so don't have to worry about that either. 
    ...got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul...

    I think of it more as alternative history than sci-fi, fwiw.

    The film they're searching for suggests there's an alternative reality where the good guys won WWII....

    I see...I didn’t realize that’s what was going on. I thought it was just propaganda for the resistance or for the Reich/Pacific states and some were victims and some were in on the fix. I did read that there’s more of a sci-fi slant as the story progresses. Cool show.

    Pretty thorough recap of Season 1 and 2

    Watched the first two episodes of Season 3.  I'm fucking clueless what is going on.  Wondering whether it is worth it to keep watching.   I guess the films are just like a Choose Your Own Adventure book and show the different endings, but at the end of the day I am just watching the characters take one path to get to one of those endings.  Liked it much better before I found out the plot!

    Anyone still watching? I’m up through the 7th episode. They’re getting to the point where they’re explaining the films to other people now and trying to convince them they’re real. 

    Childon’s storyline is sad but a little amusing. I felt bad laughing at his predicament.

    I thought the third season ended well.  They are explaining a little more about how everything works.  Still very confusing to me and have to rewind and think through some of the dialogue.

    I've tried watching the 1st episode of season 3 a couple times now and I can't get through it.  I keep finding myself not paying attention because I'm so bored.  Maybe I'll come back to it one day...
