    The ambitious, family friendly and extremely relatable tv-show continues on a greater and emotional path. To have a home and to belongThe ambitious, family friendly and extremely relatable tv-show continues on a greater and emotional path. To have a home and to belong somewhere is a basic human need, and the show still manages to get to me on an emotional level. The show is therefor very relatable, and you must thank the strong characters to that! The storytelling is just as stunning, but a bit more emotional than the previous season, and it still got a lot to tell about freedom, love, LGBT, parenting, attraction, childhood, diversity and of course everyday life. That's how great this show really is. We also get to see a lot more critical aspects with stereotypes, and the show really makes a stand with classic social roles in our society. When it comes to the characters; well they're just as incredible and relatable, but they have developed since the first season. We see what small events can do to us, it really is a clever show! The actors have also developed, and it still is that one tv-show that makes me crave to love my family even more.

    My previous flaws with the first season was the classic "drama-clichés" and some vague actors, but those flaws have actually decreased and I feel that the actors really have grown into their roles more, they interact much better now than before! I can definitely say this; it's one of the most family friendly tv-shows out there, that not just got a classic parenting plot, but a nuanced everyday life-story from adults, teenagers and kids perspective. It separates stereotypes and gender-roles to mention a few, so if you haven't seen it yet, go check it out!

    From my more critical perspective does this second season of The Fosters definitely deserve a high rating, just the plot is extremely ambitious that challenges for example; social norms -- and to see all these small events result into disaster, or everyday happiness really is something extraordinary. But some of the actors haven't really gotten the best out of them, and yes the somewhat annoying clichés do pull down my critic-rating considerably (not to mention that the whole show is a bit predictable from time to time). My critical rating for this second season is an 8, but since the show needs even more to impress me at a personal level do I only give it a personal rating of a 7/10.

    Overall rating for each episode: 7.2/10

    Critical rating: 8/10

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Still vas melodramatic as last season The Fosters picks up where it left off, Callie is unable to be adopted because she and Jude have different fathers, she is also stripped from the Fosters for a couple of days because their Adoption License has expired, Marianna is struggling with trying to fit in with the girls on the dance team, Jesus is still struggling to try and impress his girlfriend, and Lena is the new interim Principle for Anchor Ridge Charter School, Stef finds out the day Marianna and Jesus" mom disappeared she was in an argument with Mike(Stef's ex husband) Callie's father is also revealed at the end of the episode and it seems she has a sister as well.The Fosters struggle with predictable writing at times, and being melodramatic for most of the episode but at times can be brilliant and Parenthood-Esque which is why i still watch the shows and mostly enjoy it, one could only guess how good the show would be on a network like AMC or FX, but overall it was a solid first episode and i hope it turns out to be another good season Expand
