We sat down to watch season 2 of Wanted Monday night and ended up watching all 6 episodes and not going to bed till after midnight. Haven't watched any TV since.
Season 2 is a continuation of the story that started in season 1, except the McGuffin has inexplicably changed from a duffel bag full of cash to a safe deposit box key. There were some bone headed maneuvers early on that had me yelling at the screen, which annoyed my wife. So after two episodes I started drinking beer and after that the screw-ups didn't bother me as much.
Much of the story depends on blind, dumb luck and coincidences. Frigging unlikely, but it could have happened, and truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, so I'll give them a pass.
The two women are an unlikely pair. The older one has spent a lifetime keeping her head down and staying out of sight. The younger one lived a very sheltered existence, but when they get dumped in the shit they become each other's best friend. Very Thelma and Louise, except they don't kill themselves. They don't even die, and I appreciate that.
