    Once again, it’s a story about the light that slips through the cracks in broken hearts; this time, the light may not be quite as dazzling, but it’s absolutely still worth capturing.

    The good news is that season two of The End of the F***ing World stays true to the vibe of the first season, has a decently good but not great story and manages, by the end of the final episode (of eight in total), to have righted most of the wrongs that came before it.

    Overall, fans of The End of the F***ing World's first season should be pleased with what they find in Season 2. Though there are new faces and places involved, it's still got that same dreary dryness and wild unpredictability in play. While the second season doesn't exactly feel necessary, it's still fun to take another aimless ride with the show's resident weirdos and see where we end up.

    The new batch of episodes, which Covell has indicated will be the last, is essentially all resolution, a season-long working out of the original story’s loose ends, and while it’s as assured in its execution, it’s ordinary by comparison.

    It’s watchable but unnecessary.

    Season 2 is an empty shell of an epilogue that still usurps what it should be propping up.

    When the season ends, you’re left with a strong sense of, “Is that all there is?” There’s no new perspective or deeper point made by season two that wasn’t already conveyed more effectively by season one.

    It was alright. I watched all the episodes of the second season in one late night/early morning sitting. Alyssa's character was particularlyIt was alright. I watched all the episodes of the second season in one late night/early morning sitting. Alyssa's character was particularly stunted all the way through, and that got to be a bigger and bigger letdown as it seriously curtailed her expression. Not as good as Season 1, not sure if it's even worth the watch. Just alright. Full Review »

    The clearest example of when you ran out of narrative ideas but wanted to extend things to exploit a little more a success you weren't expecting.
