    No, it's not as unpredictable as "Mad Men," but at least it packs enough of a punch to keep the conspiracy theorists at bay.

Season 2 is stronger already than season 1. I especially enjoyed the episode titled, "Sitting on top of the World" from season 2 as it was the most gripping and nerve-racking of them all to date!
