I actually feel that it's lost its way a little this series with the main storyline they're trying to persue. It really hasn't worked for me and it feels like it's dwarfed everything else that had been building up from the first season. I'd go so far as to say the "Newsnight With Will McAvoy" episode felt shoe-horned in as if they got worried about just focussing on the one thing and needed to get back to basics.
I'm really happy with the progression its made from the first season. Jim's fannying about with blondie was getting annoying, as was the constant will they won't they between Will and Mac.
This season they've just chucked that out and gone at it fresh. Of course there are a couple more will they won't theys, but neither seem so intrusive.
I love the idea of an arc with one primary focus, rather than a succession of different weekly escapades. You get a real feeling with this that it's going to end up with something huge.
I'm going to watch the latest one tonight so hopefully it'll keep up the good work.
