  2. Al says:

    Why the different episode count for each season? Season 1 – 8eps, Season 2 – 10eps, now Season 3 with 9eps? Kinda weird!

    • Aly says:

      I think John Logan said it just depended on the number of episodes the story ‘fit’ into. Apparently this year it was 9, and Showtime was happy for that to be the case.

  3. Aly says:

    I’m super pleased to have a date to count down to, but May is so far away…
