Just wow
7 December 2015 | by mrswizzSee all my reviews

The thing is, you will either think this is the greatest thing or think it's pointless. I absolutely adore this and season 2 has just got better and better. Justin Theroux deserves so many accolades for what he has brought to the show. Then again, pretty much everyone concerned with making this have hit a home run. I don't know if there will be a season 3. I really hope there will be but if not we were treated to something special. In a world where every show is a copycat of the same bland procedural rubbish it is a breath of fresh air to have a show that leaves you screaming what the fudge! every 3 minutes. We'll miss you :)
