Cancellation after three seasons is no excuse for never looking into the 
murder of [spoiler] at the end of the first!

I describe it as "Hogwarts meets Narnia, not for children," but that's 
very loose.  The school is a home base through most of the series, but 
we rarely see classrooms after the first season.

I bought the Bluray so you don't have to.  I keep meaning to start a log 
of questions, most beginning with "When did", to answer in a rewatch.

I quite liked Poe (the AI hotel manager).  How's the second season?

Is there a way to watch it short of buying discs?
Netflix no longer offers season two.
