Loved Season 1. Not feeling it for Season 2. I find the story telling disjointed and confusing. Bowling4Bikes said it perfectly, "the disgust-factor gratuitous and unnecessary." And Lefty, "I'm so sick of Huey. He'a outlived his usefulness." Yup. Why didn't they melt or explode his head?

Back to Shameless and a world of chronic addiction, failure and disfunction.

S1 was good partially because we (the audience) didnt have a clue about most everything in the show. With S2, it seems like we know more than all the characters and it sucks. They already used up one big reveal (Homelander's kid) but didnt build any suspense for anything else. I hope theres some twist or conspiracy hinted at soon, but im not holding my breath. S2 may just be interesting-but-mindless TV like a lot of other mediocre shows.

You are crazy. I seriously think that Antony Starr's Homelander may be one of the greatest villain portrayals of all time. He is up there with James Earl's Jone's Vader, Anthony Hopkins Hannibal Lecter, and Heath Ledger's Joker.

If dude isn't up for awards yet, he should be.

Laz ALnso (M.M.), Jessie Usher (A-Train), Chance Crawford (The Deep), and Tomer Kapon (Frenchie) all give fantastic supporting performances and even the wildly underrated Karen Fukuhara (The Female) gives an amazingly compelling performance despite her character being mute.

Tons of excellent acting in this series with support from good writing and strong cinematography. The gore is pretty minor, I don't even know why you would focus on that.

You know the character is named Stormfront for a reason, right?

I was watching it with my gf and she goes “omg I love Stormfront!” (After episode 1). I was like why does that ring a bell...<googles stormfront> “yeeeeaaaaaaaaah I wouldn’t go telling people you love Stormfront or let any of your coworkers hear you say that. There’s no fucking way that’s a coincidence in this day and age...”

Episode 3: “aaaaaaaaaand there it is.”

Yep, she's a gender swapped literal Nazi from the comics. I feel these days he takes anything remotely anti-Asian personally.

Dammit! Looks like I need to start up my Amazon Prime membership again. But, I’ll wait until they upload the whole season so I can binge it in one weekend and cancel my Prime membership again.

Does he understand that the Super Heroes are the Bad Guys on this show and the only confirmed good guy Hero is Asian?

LOL, I didn't even read teh comics, but when I heard they were adding a new character named Stormfront I was all, "Oh eww."

Well, I guess Season II needed someone worse than Homelander.

I just keep wondering if she is going to be the root for a redemption arc for him. He is such a fucking psycho, I would be amazed to see how that would play out.

Not sure about her yet. Seemed like it at the end of SI, now in SII, things seem less clear.

The luster of being a do-goody has been scrubbed off her. You can see some of her values eroding in the way she manipulates A-Train. Albeit turnabout.
