    Thought there would have been a thread for this from back when it debuted.

    Season two was just released on Friday. I'm three episodes into the new season.

    It's a fun show. Pure fluff. Very quirky. The dialogue feels forced and unnatural, but a lot of the jokes do land quite well. Not to mention the show is filled with gore gags. In a lot of ways, it feels like a milder Ash Vs Evil Dead. Might be worth checking out for fans of that show.

    Anyone here watching?

    I just started watching season 2 myself and it continues to be really fun. It's definitely a great time killer. And yes, a lot of gore gags in a suburban neighbourhood.

    Finished season two. Just as much fun as the first season. The problem with NetFlix shows is you have a full year between seasons, where weekly shows have significantly less time in between. This season ends with a major "what's next?"

    Enjoyed both seasons. Barrymore and Olyphant work very well together. I wish there were more episodes per season or at least longer episodes. Looking forward to season 3.

    I thought it was great, season two was the better of the two, it felt like there was a freedom to do things, where there was an element of restraint in the first series.

    Acting is on point from all the cast, great dialogue, it's a fun show. Looking forward to series three.

    Cancelled.

    I'm halfway through season 3, which is apparently the last.

    How weird, I finished series 3 about 2 hours ago and have just been thinking about the ending and the fact I didn't think it would be coming back, I won't mention anything else but it makes sense.

    It's been a great series, I think it's the right place to end it, but I hope the decisions due to the cast, crew, writers etc and not Netflix, if the production had an idea and a story to tell I'd love to have seen where it went and would be annoyed to find Netflix had stopped this.

    It's on my list to check out. But I too just read that it was cancelled. I'll still take a look at it one day. It has a good cast.
