    I'm almost through the first season of this, pretty solid. It's made for some fun post-episode Wikipedia-ing to see how much of the material is based on history or "established" folklore/urban legend versus how much is the show's own creation.

    Hmm. Good to know @Sideswipe. I'll have to head on over to Wikipedia and check that out.

    Is anyone still listening to season 2 of Serial? Still good? I knocked out the first 3 episodes months ago, but just haven't had the strong desire to listen that i did with the first season. Granted, I was able to binge almost the entire first season since all but 1 or 2 episodes had already dropped when I started listening.

    Yeah, I'm still listening to it. I didn't think I would get sucked in, but I must admit I am. The whole military mentality thing is interesting to me. I don't find it as gripping as season 1, but I still think it is a good show.

    Season 2 gets a bit better as it's moved along. It's definitely not as gripping as season 1. I don't think they did as good a job this time around establishing a narrative from the onset. It took me a bit longer to really understand exactly why I was listening, exactly what the tensions were that were compelling enough to demand the serialized format. But it finds its footing a bit more in the coming episodes. I'd stick with it. Or at least revisit once the whole thing has dropped.

    I agree that the season has gotten better as it has gone along. I think they spent too many stand-alone episodes on the ground stuff in Afghanistan, as the stuff that's been most interesting to me has been the home life before the army, the rescue efforts (or lack thereof), the reactions and thoughts of fellow soldiers, and the politics. I think that they could have condensed some of the early episodes or told it in flashback. In sum, there was less meat early and more meat later and I think the season overall could have been leaner.

    I just realized I have not made my wife watch this movie in full. This will be corrected.
