Pumped for the new season but expect we will be using CC while viewing because between accents and fast talkers it was tough at times to make out all the dialog.
Plus I was reading in the Daily Mail site a while back that viewers in the UK were complaining about low volume in the speaking sound track of these new episodes.

Just finished the first episode of the second series and there were no problems with the audio.

That being said, this episode was great and introduced quite a few storylines... it's good to see Mr. Moseley and Neville Longbottom get work.

Finished it tonight. Brilliant writing and acting (again). Misery worth wallowing in with delicious moments of black comedy. Even better than the first season imho.

Nice. That's almost a 7 year gap between seasons. Definitely need a major recap before watching S3.

Realizing I saw season 1 but never returned to this series. I gotta catch up. Sarah Lancashire was great playing Julia Child on HBO for anyone who didn't see her.

Yeah, enjoyed Season 1 but never got around to 2. Looks like it's on AMC+...hmm, maybe it's time to sign up, at least for the free trial and knock out Season 2 before 3 airs.

Season 3 so far is GREAT! This show is up there with the very best of all British crime dramas. "Prime Suspect" and "The Fall", to name a few. And Sarah Lancashire is just brilliant. She deserves every award.

Finally got around to watching S3. Excellent season and finale to the series. Very satisfying ending.
As usual, Lancashire hits it out of the park.
