The Sam's next level of challenges raising her three girls!
24 February 2018 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

SEASON 02:

There are plenty of TV channels and each produce their own set of series every year. You can't watch them all. Especially I'm being a cinephile, it is hard to keep up the pace with small screen products. And not to forget, in the age of online streaming, among Netflix, Amazon Prime et cetera, it makes even harder to choose what to watch with less time we have. Anyway, I'd seen the first season of this series, so I wanted to continue with its second. Because it was one of the best comedy show. Comedy mean not that revolves around silly things. It was close to realistic, that makes it a special. Sadly, it is for grown ups only. But I don't think there's any harm for older and matured teenagers.

It was not the best scene to open, but the following events folded very nicely. Yeah, started off like another excellent season. Almost all the episodes were great, maybe except a couple with a little margin of let-down. But definitely a beautiful follow up. The same intensity was carried out throughout. The same Sam and the same three daughters of her. They had given preference to each and everyone. Some new characters made into, but they used the existing one to the fullest. I can't say it was better than the first, but surely stood equally. I know everyone's favourite would be the episode 'Eulogy'. It was emotional.

We know Pamela Adlon was one of the creator, since it was loosely based on her own life, but she took more responsibility in this season. I mean she directed the entire season. She did a wonderful job. Nothing was confirmed, but one of the episodes goes superstition. I liked some dialogues. They are knowledgeable and motivational. If you are a single parent, you will understand it better. A woman raising three kids is not an easy task. They absolutely brought it on the screen. Once again the three youngsters gave their best shot for the show. It all ended so coolly. Definitely yes to the season three, but has to wait till the year end!

8/10
