The second season of Netflix’s winning comedy-drama is just as good as the first. Expanding on the themes that were previously introduced and developed, the show manages to tap into the same tone and vibe of the first season from the first few minutes here, and it takes very little time to get re-acquainted with the show’s many characters and intertwined storylines. Alison Brie remains compelling in the lead, and she’s blessed with a terrific supporting cast of strong performers who have an evident respect for their own characters. The show’s overall narrative arc develops and gels faster this time around, with each character having more to do and the finished result is an entirely satisfying ensemble comedy with a unique premise.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
