The second season of the BBC’s striking, endlessly watchable sketch comedy series is just as hilarious as the first. Leads David Walliams and Matt Lucas continue to play off each other with comedic perfection, and it’s never anything less than impressive to watch them do just about everything. The first season’s characters return here in addition to a slew of new ones that blend in perfectly well with the overall show, so the second season is an entirely effective continuation of what started in the previous season. In particular, the character of Vicky Pollard, played by the jaw-droppingly talented Lucas, continues to steal the show every single time. Even folks who don’t care for sketch comedy can find plenty to love here.
