I was quite engrossed in this most of the way through the season, watching in a short period of time. I became bothered by the escalating gruesomeness, however, and the ending in the final episode was quite offputting. It seemed engineered for viewers to be hooked into another season. I just did not like where they chose to go with it. It's very well produced and acted, good escapist stuff. Someone with tastes different than mine might rate it much higher.
