I'm with you—though I promise, this season is great! I came in at the end of season 2, and I often tell people that the only reason I made it through season 1 and 2 were because I marathoner them in 2 days on Netflix. I actually really love the second season solely for that reason: when you watch it in rapid succession, it's kind of awesome to see how they turned a man from good to lost, but I can imagine over the course of 12 weeks it would be unbearably slow. Season 3 in the prison is also similarly slow the first half, so I'm really not making a great case here…but the character work IS excellent. And luckily unlike GoT, you can have the boring episodes on while you multitask and still keep up, if you're open to giving it another shot!
