  1. I have really wanted to like True Story but it has barely elicited a laugh . Very slight stories . Don’t know if problem is only one story per night or what but not working for me

  2. Wanted finale, in particular last 15 mins – very underwhelming. Built up a lot of hype over 5.5 episodes and the ending was a big disappointment and let the whole series down. Wouldn’t watch S3 if it were to be renewed.

    1. Yes, the Wanted finale was such a huge let-down after all the build up.
      Really disappointing, leaving so many things unresolved and unexplained.
      Was never that keen on the storyline anyway – found it all a bit implausible with quite a few many plot holes.
      But still a shame as I quite enjoyed it up till then, especially the main characters and stunning NZ scenery.
      Wonder if there will be a Season 3 to hopefully tie up many loose ends?
