A broken shell of its former self.
13 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Do yourself a favor and watch season 1. It is GREAT. Now do yourself an even bigger favor and stop there. Six hours of my life I can't get back.

While the original set us up with high expectations, the problem isn't that it's different - though it did cause much of the initial appeal to completely vanish. It's just BAD.

Forced plot line. Contrived connections. Stunted characterizations of inappropriately flat characters bordering on parody mixed with beyond the scope over-the-top stock characters though impressively portrayed despite an unconvincing story and dialogue that is not even close to compelling and ranging, occasionally, from outlandish to absurd. Two of the foils (bio-mom and bf) took the most flight, but never landed.

I completely agree with a previous reviewer about the cinematic intrigue of the opening scene and the segments revolving around that particular optic... Yes to much more of that and much less of everything else.

Such a shame these important and relevant topics were handled so clumsily. A total waste of talent and time. But, seriously, watch the first season. It's absolutely everything this isn't.
