There's been 1 or 2 times where I've looked at my phone during a slow dialogue scene, but I think the longer running time generally works. We've waited so long for a new season, it's great to be spoiled with content. It also helps that I forced my boyfriend to re-watch the entire series since he'd only seen the first 2 episodes of S1. We've been watching 1 episode a night, and I think it gives the correct breathing/digest time. I adore the Max/Kate Bush scene, but (this might be controversial) despite all the emotion/metaphors tied between both the song and character, I still want to hear more Hounds of Love lol.
