Though the constant gurning of that lead female agent really irritates. Either the actress or the character only has one reaction expression and it’s irksome. Otherwise fairly enjoyable up to episode 3.
Finished this last night, really enjoyed it and look forward to S3.
How many times did Hanna try to rescue Clara only to get caught / betrayed? Once would have been enough, but jeez just get the flip out while you have the chance! Once out of The Meadows it all picked up though and I forgive it
8/10 for S2, I miss Joel Kinnamon but no daft camping family (which also featured in the movie to be fair) was a bonus.
Really enjoyed the series. Pacing was much better, as was the acting. The main hurdle I couldn't get over was that it seemed completely unnecessary to have teenage girls doing the missions in the first place. Seemed like a very complicated way to achieve what they could have done with an ordinary military unit, and in fact just caused more problems for them than it solved.
S1 was hugely enjoyable with kinnaman really nailing the part and we were both really looking forward to watching S2....(yes, the camping teenager angst thing was overdone but nothings perfect)
Unfortunately though, S2 was just a meandering mess with massive plot holes that just tainted the overall enjoyment. The 'girls' just didnt seem real or dark enough for me and they slipped into the giggly teenage thing way too easy spoiling many of the episodes. As mentioned above, it was far too complicated for a very simple story line (anonymous emails anyone?) And as for Enos, how many times were they going to capture her!! Her scars and bruises did seem to heal up a bit quickly for the last episode....
