@Suzanne (thank you) - I've done that several times: saved the final episode to watch it right before the new season. Of course for me, many times I (unintentionally) haven't finished before the next season starts. But I mostly don't mind gaps of time - it's more impotant to know that it's coming back.
Believe it or not, I haven't watched the last ten minutes of the last episode of Good Behavior. But I think they've already indicated what happens. At the beginning, I wasn't overky interested because I already watch enough stuff where the good guys (protaganists) are really bad guys. And enough stuff about drugs and crime. But what I didn't say below was that all the humor in this show caught me by surprise because it was damn funny. That is the way to watch this show. It is about as funny as anything I've ever seen and in part this is because there is also the serious aspect. We, the audience, deserves that our favorite criminals are not so good, or lucky, as we thought. I'm guessing that the storyline is very close to the (novel) or whoever wrote the bigger story. This could be a case of a script coming to screen and possibly exceeding was written, or just exposing the quality of it. I'm guessing the story is still folowing the novel so no one is making it up as it goes. The end result has been masterfull.

Steve S. One more thing, if I know there is a major cliffhanger, I might actually wait to watch until the season starts back up. Since half the dramas on TV seem to have turned episode finale/season premiere into 2 part dramas, I save the finales until the show starts back up. Otherwise I have to rewatch the finale since I will have long forgotten what it was about. I watch to many shows and they jumble together. So I guess one difference in our viewing is that you don't do it intentionally. I do. :)

@Steve S. - I'm answering here since I don't want to annoy people by taking more space than I already did on a board from another show. Somehow I must have either missed your answer to my ? here or forgotten to watch. I'm not sure which, but thank you for redirecting me back to it.
I owe you 2 fold:
1) Great show! I watched it straight through yesterday. It manages to feel both complete and clearly ready for another season. I agree that the acting and writing are amazing and well worth watching.
2) Somehow my TiVo clipped a bunch of the episodes so I didn't have the ends. In some cases it wasn't that big a deal, but in the last one - huge deal. By some weird coincidence, Comcast On Demand has the 2nd half of the season through March 8th. If a couple more days had passed, I would have been left without endings, and being too cheap to pay for episodes when I only need a few minutes, I would have had to wait until next fall.
I have come to trust your opinions so thanks for that too.

@suzanne: ! If you're like me, you wouldn't intentionally wait for the next year. Unintentionally, and more often than I like, the next season starts before I've caught up - but I never do it on purpose.
It's been over three weeks since I last watched Good Behavior - and I still have two episodes left. Virtually every night since then, I thought about watching the next episode (it's number 1 on my list), but I haven't had time to watch any recorded series since then.
I don't see a cliff-hanger coming because, in a sense, the cliff-hanger possibility, given the storyline, is forever present - and, as you'll see, non-threatening. What I can say, is that this show has been solid every episode. Make sure you post your thoughts somewhere I see them if and when you watch a bunch of episodes (two episodes left in season 1 is a good time :)

@Steve S: I trust your taste so I'll give it a try. Does S1 end with a cliffhanger that would be better watched with S2, or should I just watch S1 all the way through now?

Love everything about this show. It's clear that the writing team puts in some real effort in working out the scripts and overall storylines. It's not like the average "churn and turn" formula based crap that floods the airwaves nowadays.

This show is absolutely brilliant. Michelle Dockery couldn't be any better. Likewise for the script. If you aren't watching this (from the beginning), you are losing out. I don't know how I stumbled into it, and I was skeptical at first, but the payoff is a nothing short of a motherlode.

One of my wife & I's favorite new series. Hoping season two will be just as good, if not better.

Have to say I enjoyed this but the last episode was too packed as if it was concluding so Im a bit in shock that it has been renewed.

Quit watching after 2 episodes. I did not care for Letty. Why did she use her real name when trying to con the hitman? Story driven by stupidity.
