    Individually, the strands of “Butcher’s Block” are compelling in their own way, but the separation between them makes for a slightly bumpier story that occasionally gets stretched a tad thin.

    That visual language and emboldened aesthetic give Butcher’s Block a distinct flavor from the previous two installments. It’s easily the most striking and eye-catching season, but it also has a distinctly twisted sense of humor that pops up between--and sometimes during--the moments of ringing terror.

    I enjoyed this season much more than the second one. The story is far more engaging.

Several times through the season I felt my stomach turning with horror and fear. Rutger Hauer can still be unspeakably chilling just as well as he can play your kind old grandpa hiding a very horrific secret.
    I do not think I will ever be able to look at a nice piece of stake without remembering this season.
    Although I do think if they intend to leave certain plot points open at the end the writers should may be think about not having them at all considering the closing five seconds of the finale, it would make for a tighter watch.
    I also love that I knew nothing about these seasons going in, so when Replicant gone nuts Roy Batty
    (aka Rutger Hauer) showed up in tht hat, I almost did not recognize him.
    All said and done my complaints with this season again are very minor, may be they could do without certain plot points, even so the good far outweighs the bad for me.
    Loving these bitter-sweet season finales tht are intact since the first season and I am glad that is still a key focus.I felt the editing was a bit stronger in this season over all, acting was excellent all around. The sound definitely helped in making my stomach turn throughout, I would definitely suggest a good sound system while watching all the seasons sinceI I feel a lot of the excellent sound work may get lost thereby losing a lot of the atmosphere.
    I am still a bit sad that the show is not rating a bit higher in the scale. IMHO, I am very confused with a lot of the complaints tht I have been hearing for this season as well as the show in general. But I am confident in my belief of this show hitting a cult status many years after it finishes airing considering the core subject matter chosen every season.
    Definitely catch season 3 as well. A recommendation from me, although I would add that keeping expectations for the show to be just like any of the conventional shows out there might let you down. Best to let the story unfold with an open mind rather than try and analyze which show is just like this, or which show is better than this. Just enjoy the strong writing and let your Imagination FLY !!

    People are all over the aesthetic and tone of this horror show but the imagery is constant, repetitive and numbing, the narrative isPeople are all over the aesthetic and tone of this horror show but the imagery is constant, repetitive and numbing, the narrative is non-existent, the characters shallow and the whole thing feels like one thin idea STRETCHED out to an unendurable length. This entry is gory and campy, playing fast and loose with mental illness, and feels like it was written by an untalented person while filled with opiates. It feels like a bad dream, and that does not make it good television. Plus it's not scary: the pacing is leaden and mechanical and the endless scenes of people eating human flesh and lapping up blood soon become tiresome. Expand
