User Reviews

Season 2 better than season 1
4 December 2019 | by NightmarelogicSee all my reviews

Although I really enjoyed season 1 it really didn't say a thing new about The Purge that anyone who hasn't watched the movies didn't already know. Season 2 however takes place in the 364 days between one Purge and the next and involves the NFFA which adds a whole new level to the show. Like season one it involves a select group of people but it also has short opening stories that show how normalized violence has become.

That being said all the really low reviews for season 1 are hilariously wrong. Was the season perfect? No. It had its problems but it is nowhere near a one star. At absolute worst I would give it five stars. But the people don't really get the concept of the star system, They either 10 star a show or 1 Star it. Season 1 had some tonal problems and a couple problematic characters and didn't really say anything new.

Season 2 is where the show truly shines........
