Love watching this show. Freddie Hightower is so creepy! Love it!! It seems like a lot of the shows I watch are being cancel5lef.... I'm hoping this doesn't become one of them.

Season 4 sucks!!!! It's boring as hell! Who cares about Norma and her marriage of convenience that suddenly turns into a loving relationship??/ WTF is up with that? It's like the writers forgot what they wrote the week before. -- Seriously.. season 4 has been utterly terrible. If this is what is in store for season 5 why even bother.

Watching this from the outset, it has really grown into something that justifies two seasons of renewals. Freddie Highmore does the difficult task of being charismatic, vulnerable and evil. Mad, bad, and dangerous to know. That final episode of Season 3 could have been concluding - I'd have lived with that - yet really showed what could happen if renewed. I may be alone in thinking this really could blossom further into something that gets venerably mentioned alongside the staples. Who could have thought that of a prequel to a movie?

I stopped watching this after longmire was cancelled. I let it slide when they cancelled breakout kings and the glades but when they cancelled longmire they went too far. Suck it A&E
A&E is owned by Disney and another company I have never heard of. Disney doesn't run it though the other idiots do. So they can suck it Disney your good for now.

Season 1 was great, season 2 was ok, and I didn't much like season 3.
I hope they can turn things around. Hopefully they will move the story along further and closer to the Psycho era. I hope they can get there before the show ends.
