Better than the first season
16 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can totally see why this show was cancelled. It's just so hard to get into at times because it feels like its main goal is to not give audiences the usual climactic satisfactions most other shows thrive on. Also because it's not nearly as plot-driven as you'd expect a western show to be. In this way, it's completely unpredictable, and yet just like Season 1, it ends on notes that should have been obvious in retrospect. It's an easier show to admire than love, but I pretty much loved it this season. I do think the first 8 episodes are stronger as a cohesive whole than the last four, and the episodes 5-7 unit are pretty much amazing. It manages to be more engaging on a character level, and gives us a lot of great performances. It was a lot of fun to see Sarah Paulson and Anna Gunn in something a decade old, and the former especially delivers some stunning work. I'm just so glad my baby Joannie wasn't killed, I was sure she would
