Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage

I finally finished this season of Black Lagoon. I think I've been holding off because it's one of my faves, and I know of no new third season.

In the course of the first season I had labelled it, pretty accurately, I think, as a B-team series. Simple writing, broadly entertaining characters, in short, a popcorn show, filling in for the deeper stuff like Ghost in the Shell.

But by the end of this second season, I have to say they stepped up the nuance and character development to an impressive degree. These are not nice people, but you begin to see a glimmer of how they arrived at where they are.

I hope there's a season three, even if it isn't for a couple of years...
