    Season 1 was good and engaging with lots of actual folklore, Season 2 is primarily a horror series without any depth. Even the few episodes that deal with unsolved / ongoing stories do not connect.

    This combined with the removal of Aaron Mahnke as the narrator decimates any connection to the deeper storytelling of the podcast.

    This is what you call "dropping the ball". I am a big fan of the podcast and season one, due to Aaron Mahnke's narration and storytelling, but season two is Lore in name only and contains nothing much of what makes the podcast or previous season so damn special. What we get is a sub-par horror series without a soul.

    Wow, as much as I enjoyed season one of Lore I have the new season that much. The first season of Lore was an intriguing and engaging look as some of the creepiest corners of history. The show was narrated by Lore podcast host Aaron Mahnke. He filled each episode with fact and interesting bits that drew the viewer in.

I was excited to learn there would be a season two, however the second season lacks the charm of the first season, it lacks the narration, and ultimately it fails to be interesting. I watched the first three episode, but don't believe I will bring myself to watch the final three. Expand

    The narration and documentary elements that made the original season so fascinating are completely gone. It's just a bunch of mediocre re-enactments of horrifying events from history. It's just like a Disney teen-horror drama. It's very sad,

    Murder shoudln't be "fun" to watch, yet Lore is strangely engrossing. [19/26 Oct 2018, p.89]
