Builds on the momentum of Season 1 !
on June 9, 2015
I enjoyed season 2 of Enlightened even more than season 1. It is a continuation of the season 1 story arc, allowing us to delve further into the lives of the characters. The writing is very real and authentic, and the characters are so well fleshed out, even those in secondary roles. This is a testament to the actors' performances, and the directin & editing of the show. Every minute of a finished episode really seems to count. The pacing of each 1/2 hour episode is just right. Although I wouldn't call the show "phenomenal" or "can't miss" television, it is definitely engaging and fun to follow these flawed, truly human characters as each does their own thing. The last 4 episodes were particularly poignant and touching, with some very rich scenes between characters. I hope that HBO brings it back for another season!
