After a rocky first episode, a super sophomore season
on April 7, 2013
If the first season brought you here, you will be delighted to know that Jack is as clueless and self-absorbed as ever (and we are the better for it).
But the second season opener threatens to take that away from us, as Jack seems more tame (though not too tame to turn a murder into a car-shopping opportunity)--though then the season settles down for all the outrageous quips and preposterous situations you watch this for, all in the name of British crime fighting. So be patient. After the slow season opener, you get five follow-on episodes of great fun.
Season two mixes up the show a bit--a new partner (Miranda Raison), who gets her share of screen time, and an occasional foray into situations other than murder. And first episode aside, the season is stronger for her addition. Raison is a more rounded character, and she hold her own on screen.
The rest of the fine ensemble cast is intact. So if you loved the first season, there is twice as much to love here. Enjoy!
