    Well that was a twist I didn't see coming.

    I sort of agree about VV, but I actually like him despite it. He's floundering a bit in the more serious scenes, it's true, but I really liked the scene where he swoops in after he has the guys rear end the gambler and mace and beat him. Seemed like he was really in his element in that scene.

    It didn't help that the radio was playing "I Pity the Fool."

    That was more his kind of scene, honestly.

    Ok. Is this season worth watching? I've heard such intensely mixed things about it, and I don't want to taint my warm, loving memories of Mattie M waxing philosophic...sexily.

    I'm liking it so far, but it's not like season 1 really at all. But there is the promise of much future weirdness.

    F++k season 1. In with the new out with the old. Looking back it was overrated anyways. I like where the new season is going.

    And I hope our special guy is still marching cause I would bone him.

    A lot of people don't like Vince Vaughn in this one but he is turning out to be the best character. I have a feeling he will witness something horrific soon.

    I still feel like Vaughn was miscast. he's pedaling as fast as he can, but he's struggling in the part (he did okay with the opening monologue at least). I think he'd do better playing someone who is more animated versus an internalized slow fuse. The others seem to be sunk pretty deep into their characters and are believable to me.

    Great dialogue between Bezzerides and Velcoro in the car... one of the best moments of the episode.

    Isn't Woodrugh's relationship with his mom rather... odd? Hmmmm. And I think we might have found out something interesting about him as well.

    I'm enjoying the series so far, but I think people have to start taking it on its own terms. it's a bit more straight-forward (aside from a spaghetti plate full of plot strands) than the first season, but that makes sense based on the subject matter. I would like to see more diversity throughout the series, if it continues with more seasons, so that's fine with me.

    One of my favorite lines:
    I think Vaughn nails it. My sister said the. Same thing but Vaughn is really the only one who could play that part. He has the voice and the height and it's realistic. People who tend to rise up in a syndicate speak and act like him. The scene in two where he crosses the street was awesome.
