First, what drew me in to the show was the unconventional pairing of the two series leads. I loved watching them learn to work together and trust each other. They were all over the place in this season and their relationship didn't grow. Worst of all, it ended with them having a huge fight, that I’m not sure can be satisfactorily resolved. I hated everything about the season finale.
Tying into this is that there were a ton of episodes where nothing seemed to happen...because so much was happening with the series storyline. While the overarching storylines for the season and the series are intriguing, what I enjoy is the heist, con, or case that we encounter episode to episode. Around the middle of the season, all of the episodes focused on the season storyline and each episode storyline seemed clichéd at best. And speaking of clichés... the last half of the season had dialog so bad that I was literally rolling my eyes.
Then there are the women. I mentioned in my review of season one how much I love Burke's wife and their healthy relationship. In the first half of season two, Mrs. Suit, as Mozzy so affectionately calls her, is relegated to a conversation here and there. I could overlook that, because she is brought back for some decent storylines at the end, but Neil's love interests drove me crazy.

I will watch season three, but I have reservations. Most of the characters are still awesome and there are some great moments, but most of the season left me shaking my head as characters acted out of character and storylines were consistently unoriginal.
