Season 2

This season takes us deeper into the machinations and motivations of the character’s we ended up with from Season one (with a couple of surprises) but the appeal of the show has waned a bit. Without the fascination of The Process to watch, this show just turns into another dystopian struggle between the rebels and the tyrants. Of course there’s double-crossing and “whose side is he/she on?” quandaries but it’s just not that deep or tense as the first season was. I have come to be fond of most of the characters so there’s that. The camera style and world-building continue to be solid and believable but something has been lost in the switch from “survivor” style to “hunger games behind the scenes” style.

I’ll still watch Season 3.
