My favorite episode is Hit and Run. Noblet and Jellineck are priceless in this one. This whole season is better than good, its gooder. ...
in an age where the vast majority of non-sitcom comedy shows are parody humor (i.e. SNL, MadTV) it's a breathe of fresh air to see something so inventive, creative, and politically incorrect; the central theme to this show is the satiring of the "after-school special" mentality; where in the end, the protagonist discovers some new enlightening, cathartic revelation about life and everything is okay again, but it's much more complex than that. the writers toss in some of the most bizarre dialogue, often laced with double negatives and contradictions (such as "must be great to hope for the things you wish you wanted", etc ...)
all in all, this show is certainly not for everyone. as amy sedaris (jerri blank) said herself in an interview: "I'm glad everyone doesn't like it, that would mean i was doing something wrong." amen.
In many respects the second season of Strangers with Candy is better than the first. The characters are fully realized and their behavior becomes even more outrageous. The dialog is sharp and the scenarios more absurd. The writing and directing for this show does a fantastic job of playing up to the talent of the principal actors. Throw in some fantastic guest stars and this season is not to be missed.
