As I understand it, most of the USA Network original series have a reputation of being too trashy for "good" cable channels (AMC), but still better than some of the other cable channels (Lifetime, Bravo, etc.). Whatever; I will happily admit to watching and enjoying the **** out of this show.
They left off season 1 with a cliffhanger, even though we all knew what the eventual outcome would be since they can't get rid of the main character (this not being Game of Thrones). As such, I was a bit disappointed in the season premiere since it didn't hold much suspense.
Although every time Gina Torres gets angry, I get nostalgic for Firefly all over again. And a little hot and bothered. Rawr.
