Anyone else completely enamored with this show?

 

Showtime's just released the season two premiere, if you'd like to watch ahead. Otherwise, it premieres May 3rd at 10pm ET.

This show is SO BAD but I kind of love it. I'll watch the new episode and post my thoughts in a bit!

The U.S., but I'm sure it's trickled over to other free websites as well, now. Tell me how you like the premiere! It really is a cheeseball of a show, but I love it!

I watched a marathon for this one last weekend for my brother's birthday. I love all the different characters introduced. Especially since you know most of them from other movies or books.

@Shannon and @Bone you guys kind of fizzled off without actually saying what you thought about it? I'm all up to speed as of a few days back and I want to hear opinions and insights

Ah sorry about that! I wasn't super impressed with this season. Sure there were some interesting scenes with Sembene, Ethan, and John, but I think the romances were frivolous and some storylines dragged on too long. If I never hear about those witches again, I'll be happy.

I thought it was just me. The romances were so...fleeting and...tangential. At one point I was wondering if they were just doing Desperate Housewives meets Supernatural. Same, I hated the witches so so much, they were simultaneously boring yet over-the-top. I enjoyed a few scenes with them but I thought they ruined it by making them last longer than necessary, especially with the drawn-out chanting. I want to like it, but I wish they focused more on story and less on who's going to romance who next.

Yup it felt like all the romances were super inconsequential and just didn't further the story in any way. I'm also SO tired of Brona/Lily and Dorian. It's like their scenes were crafted just to use Dorian's pretty home. And agreed about your Sembene spoiler. He's my fave
