I can probably find my original social media posts about it. Then the locale and title changed. More info leaked out. I grew even more excited. I had very high expectations by the time the show premiered and it didn't fail. I also enjoyed the second season and can't wait for the third. I think this show is fun and amazing.
    my friend used to have a band called The Montauk Project!

    My distaste for season 2 isnt based on high expectations. I just thought it was boring, it had a lot of redundancies, frustrating lack of character development, weird sexual politics which included the strange isolation of all of it's female characters. I felt like the pacing was off, and character choices were hard to buy. The continued victimized state of the missing kid from season one and the continued frantic state of his mother became tiring.

    A lot of season twos are bad for the last few years, and I think some of these prestige shows build their first seasons as self contained stories, and in coming up with a sequel they faulter often failing to come up with a proper way to escalate the action or altogether not really having a coherent plan for the shows future.


    A recent exception would be Mrs. Maisel. I came to season 2 with very high expectations based on the first season and those were more or less successfully met. That season cleverly deserializes the show, which allowed individual episodes to thrive while larger arcs played out in a secondary sort of way.

    You just blew my mind, being a native Long Islander myself, I rememeber the talk about Montauk as well, so story corroborated a little more . The amount of times I Google earthed Plum Island...

    Word around the interwebs is that season 4 may begin filming ‘as soon as October’.

    No discussion on season 3? I'm letting my Netflix account lapse for a few months, so in the meantime am wondering what everyone's making of the new episodes.

    People on the internet freak me out... calling this a spoiler. Jesus, if it wasn't clear to you what that ending implied, then I don't know. And hell, this is just a teaser giving away absolutely nothing.

    Curious where they will take this for the new season!
