What was Campion thinking?
8 September 2017 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

After enjoying season 1 so much, my wife and I were dying to see the second series. I, or I should say my wife and I, can be brief about our conclusion. It is obvious Mrs. Campion wanted to show us the different angles to the male race. Or to put it differently, how different men react to women. We are puzzled. Sexual exploitation? Broken relationships? Surrogate mothers? Sex workers? Nerds discussing women the entire day? Male chauvinism and manipulation? It's all there and much more. But to put all this in six episodes was simply too much. Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss), a deeply complex character, is therefore at the center of all the action. As a crime/detective story this is simply one of the worst plots I have seen to date. Especially, the beach scene in episode 6. Why did she know this? Why did no one pick up the box? And why is Griffin's daughter center-stage? Why show us the Miranda character? What use does she have? And why did she also have to be pregnant? And what use does this horny detective have? The acting was excellent that kept us watching, and of course the expectation that at the end we would see IT. But No this was very disappointing.
