I like it, but progressively less as the seasons have gone by, which is not unusual for me with series as the writing becomes increasingly less-polished.

The premise leaves me completely uninterested, ergo I have zero intent to watch it.

I’m enjoying it. This last season was a little meh, but I still enjoy Kate Mulgrew’s character.

Oddly, like many shows lately, I find the main character the least interesting.

I love it and agree with @Seek ‘s whole answer!

Pachy's avatar

Agree with @Seek. Mulgrew is amazing.

NerdyKeith's avatar

@Seek, I agree. From the middle of season 1 to season 3 I felt that Piper was really starting to evolve. But she’s becoming a little bland. Lets hope Piper ups her game in the fourth season.

But I have to say Mulgrew is hilarious as Red and I love her character relationship with Healey.

YES. Also her advice on how to peel potatoes changed. my. life.

ragingloli's avatar

Potatoes actually taste better with the skin.
But if you have to peel them, peel them after cooking them. You can do it easily with your bare hands.

Seek's avatar

^ That was the revelation Red gave on the show. I taught myself how to cook, so I never had anyone around to teach me such wonderful folk wisdom.

My brother in the US sent the first series to me for Christmas. I watched it and could never decide whether I actually enjoyed it or not. Unusual for me, I can usually tell by episode 3 at least whether I’m going to get into it. And I normally love quirky black humour, but I just couldn’t get interested in any of the characters, not enough anyway. I did watch the entire series I might add though. I may watch series 2 at some stage in the future, and give it another go, perhaps. Conversely, I have been loving The Night Manager, only two episodes left to go unfortunately.
