Watched the first season of the Netflix series Bad Blood. It is loosely a historical docu-drama about the drug trade in Canadistan. The first season was decent with a nice twist at the mid end point. There is enough reality to keep it grounded and enough drama to make it fun. Based on that alone, we had read about a continuation of the series for more season(s). We were disappointed to see that it moved much further into the fiction section to a run of the mill offering, all the way around.

Where I like the main character, particularly his portrayal as off the rails "Tig" in SOA, this continuation is not taking advantage of his skill set. The rest of the casting and characterization is shallow and predictable as well as the storyline. Where I would go so far as to rate the first season a 7/8 I would be reaching to give this season a 4. I have committed to a degree that I will finish it in the hopes that a fizzle might happen but would otherwise suggest to watch soap opera re-runs.
