It was pointed out to me as I was watching the show last week that one of the reasons that things may be dragging on as they are is the fact that the show was actually extended for a season given how well-received season 1 was. We'll know when season 3 is geometrically better than the two seasons that came before it.
It does seem oddly cobbled together to me atm. I still really like the show though there is just something slightly off-kilter about the way a few of the female characters are written (i.e I find them really annoying. )
