Average rating for the season: 3.75

Quite an improvement over 3.25 for season 1, but I wonder if that number really reflects how good the season is. Or maybe it just seems that way because the second part of the season was so strong. I gave exactly half of the episodes (11) a rating or 4 or higher, 14 episodes got an above average rating, but a few weaker episodes and inconsistency in the early part of the season bring the average rating down somewhat. It’s worth mentioning that the average rating for the first 12 episodes is 3.5, and for the last 10 episodes (from Surprise) – 4.05 (4.10 if you count from Innocence).

It will be very interesting to compare this to the average rating for season 3.

God, season 2 took a long time. I hope real life won't interfere as much and that I'll do season 3 much more regularly!
