    I've taken way too long of a break between seasons 2 and 3, but now that I've picked it back up again, I can't see how I'll stop anytime soon. While seasons 1 and 2 had arguably some of the strongest episodes of television I've ever seen, the overall season was pretty varied in terms of quality, for me. I can safely say that season 3 is a marked improvement in consistency, one subplot about an office romance aside, and I've already seen an instant classic episode in the first few of the season. This is arguably where the show perfects its formula and starts to coast... on greatness. Also, a quick note: the soundtrack has been really good in this season.

    It has taken me much too long to pick this show back up. I'll start Season 3 probably after I finish Slings and Arrows and probably Treme.

    Yeah, Stephen. I highly suggest picking it back up. Another plus of this season is that we really get to learn more about who Bayliss is. Since he was consumed by the Adena Watson case, we mostly got to know him through that, but now that we're back in the swing of things, we get to spend some time with him (well, more time) in his private life, and I find him to be pretty fascinating.

    I watched the first few episodes of season 1 a long time ago and then never continued for some reason...
