Talking heads comprises a 30-40 minute monologue of a character, documenting experiences that they have had in the life. While the first season was interesting and at times moving, this second season takes us to an altogether deeper level.
This second season focuses on 6 more characters, explaining the experiences they have had, recent or distant. While all 6 monologues are exceptional, there were 2 particularly moving ones.
Waiting for the telegram has Thora Hird, a 90-something year old woman in a nursing home explaining her life. When she reminisces on her young man back in World War I, it becomes truly saddening.

If you are looking to have a meaningful and moving Sunday afternoon sometime, this second season of Talking Heads is recommended.
