I'm watching S2E1 now.  I think I need to go back and watch the last episode of S1, I've forgotten too much.  "This is some bullshit!"   :laugh:

We tried to watch it again when the 2nd half of season 2 started up a couple weeks ago.  We got bored and turned it off again.

I'm warming up to it. Really liked the second episode of the second half of the season.

I can't watch the first season again unless I signup for a subscription service to Peacock.  (I have Peacock, but just the free version)  So I read the S1 episode synopses online and continued watching S2 on syfy.  The 3rd episode, I think it was called "Girls' Night" was pretty bad.  If I had started with that episode I think I would have just turned it off and found something else to watch.  The first 2 episodes were pretty good and hopefully S2E3 was just a one-off wokefest and they got it out of their system and can get back to the story.

I am running a week behind and so far with season 2 I am .... meh...., so far I am not impressed and even less so after watching the episode from last week. I only watch it at this point because I still have hopes it will kind of go back to its roots from season 1 but it seems it is destined to careen off on a new, touchy-feely direction. I don't know if they are trying to pull in a different demographic (women in particular) or not.With season 1 I would watch it within a day or so, this season if I even remember it is recorded I will eventually get to it.

Time to bring it back to the top so those who want to binge watch the first two seasons before season 3 will have close to a week to do it. Season 3 starts Feb 14 on SyFy and Peacock streaming.

Two episodes into the season and so far so good!

I'm really liking it so far.

Considering how Season 2 ended, I really was expecting more exposition of what was going on in the secret underground facility Linda Hamilton's character took our RA into last year. About all I got was that our RA didn't like the way Linda's people were shuffling papers.

It's two episodes in.

Give it time.

Crap! I wanted to go back and watch a couple of episodes from seasons 1 and 2 because I enjoyed them.

I though the entire series was streaming on Hulu.

Nope.

Peacock.

Gotta think about this.

^^^

It appears the older seasons are on Netflix now as well.

I haven't watched the new season yet. I've got the episodes recording and will probably start watching in a couple of weeks.

I almost dropped a hysterically funny spoiler from the second episode.

I just about fell off my sofa I was laughing so hard.
