What have I seen on Netflix? Second season of Suburra

Source: Netflix
Yesterday I finished watching Suburra's second season and I have to say that I liked it quite a lot, not more than the first season, but it was up to the task, maintaining the dramatic tension without deviating with useless sub-plots that lead nowhere.
Although in the middle of the season, on the fourth episode, the series enters into a kind of slowing down of the action, as if I wanted to catch a little breath and continue with the rhythm that I had since chapter one.
The important thing, in my opinion, is that the series continues to keep the interest in how the three friends, Aureliano, Spadino and Lele, try to become the new mafia kings of Rome, with direct action and without the hassles that take us away from the main plot.
I hope that the third season, which in the eighth chapter gave us a preview of how it was going to be, will be just as interesting or more so than this one.
