I bought my Season Pass for Underground within 10 minutes of the first episode! The research the production team puts into this show is amazing, and I have to look up several of the references and allusions after each episode.

Underground is not the kind of show you can watch and multitask. If you are not paying close attention to dialogue and gestures as well as the action onscreen, you might miss context and nuance.

If you are not interested in history and the ways it continues to shape the present, or if you need a show that leaves you with warm fuzzy feelings each week, Underground is not the show for you.

Season 2 is jst as great as season 1
Verified purchase
I HIGHLY recommend everyone to watch all seasons & episodes of this tv series.

Season 2 is jst as great as season 1 was. This series is the truth!!! Intertwining true history with nailbiting fiction, plot development, character complexity, & plot driving present-day music. All combined to create this masterpiece. Underground is the best, engulfing tv series of this day & time. Anyone would be hard pressed to find ANY tv series, much less one set in slavery & antebellum time periods, that even remotely matches Underground's quality & caliber. The final product & everything that goes into making the final product that we have seen on our screens since season 1 episode 1 is usually only seen in films/movies/motion pictures, but never in a TV series!! Every episode is like a mini-movie. I LOVE this series, & everyone who watches this show instantly becomes enthralled in it!

Underground is simply amazing!!

Underground is simply amazing!!!!! It picked off where it left off from Season 1 (leaving us in suspense!) and came back with thrilling monologues and great acting. I look forward to seeing it every week, as I know I'm in for a treat! The young lady that plays Harriet Tubman's role in the episode "Minty" is worthy of an Oscar!!! Great scenery, costume, acting, and actors. I suggest watching it from the beginning and not missing an episode. Thanks to the writers and producers for this magnificent show! Kudos to the entire cast.

Awesome! I'm so hooked it's not even funny. Nothing or no one can interrupt me while I'm watching. The actors are incredible. While suspenseful and thrilling, its insightful and informative. When do I get to see season 3?

Absolutely Spectacular! This show will leaving you wanting more after EVERY episode!
Verified purchase
I am obsessed with this show. I watched season 1 through my cable provider. Before season 2 came out, my cable company cut ties with WGN. I immediately bought the entire second season without having seen one episode because I knew it would be amazing! I cannot wait for a third season! I hope I don't have to wait too long. The acting is amazing, the story line is gripping, and the twists are endless. I cannot count the number of times this show makes me gasp.

Underground - Season 2 Reflection
Verified purchase
What can u say about a show that stirs every emotion in the human body? What we gain from shows that reflects the true nature of being forced to work through your differences or die is invaluable because it is as close to reality as it gets. We move on to the future by facing the truth and becoming stronger, and by growing smarter and wise enough to showcase the effects of our errors and misjudgments. Underground - Season 2.

This series is well worth them viewing, the writer does a great job of showing true American history from all cultural perspectives. It exposes the human hearts balance of Good and Evil, that lives in all people regardless of race color or social status. The foundation building blocks for America as we know it today Good and Bad were established on a coat of many colors. This film does not DEMONIZE white people and it does not project all black people as weak quitters, it shows the strength and weakness of both cultures.
