You're a bit behind, but if you're not watching it, you should be.

If you've got FX, you can watch the first few eps online.

I finally got around to watching the first 2 episodes last night (1 on Amazon, 1 On-Demand).
I wish it had subtitles.
The first episode of the second season had me confused; names sounded familiar, but I didn't recognize anyone. I thought they had changed the actors playing all the roles. It took me a bit to realize that this season was a generation earlier than season 1.
Week 9: Well that was just weird.
You damn betcha, and I haven't a clue how they will tie that in to the finale. My guess: they won't, but it will reappear in Season 3.

On another note...

Hanzee's AR has the triangle fore end, which seems period correct to me. I note that Mike Milligan's 1911 has a very modern looking beavertail on it. How common was that in 1979?
It wasn't... or they can call it an Ed Brown prototype
That's what I thought. I wasn't sure of the timeline as to when that was invented, and when it became a common custom modification. I didn't think it was commonly available on new guns until Kimber got into the act in the mid 90s. The shape of the one on MM's gun looked modern, not like a combat special. If it had looked like a Pachmayr gun, I would've been very impressed.
I went back and looked again. The scene was 39 minutes into Episode 9, and the 1911 in question is clearly visualized, but backlit. Modern beavertail, commander hammer, and Novak profile rear sights. Clearly anachronistic for 1979.
Here's your new office...ever play golf?
THAT was the highlight of the finale. I was cracking up. My wife, who hadn't seen any of the previous episodes thought I was nuts. Here's your great promotion Mike, an office that's smaller and less comfortable than a prison cell. Oh, and we reward initiative, so stay late and come in on weekends!
