I liked season 1 more than most. And I had mixed feelings about season 1.
Billy Crudup as Cory Ellison is excellent. My favourite character. And there’s a lot more Cory Ellison in season 2. You are rooting for him.
But this show is mostly annoying rich, entitled people complaining about how miserable they are. Whiners.
Season 2 has even more moaning. Again, too much drama. Not enough action. Guardian called it the messiest show on TV.
But Steve Carell as Mitch Kessler is quite believable in season 2. You almost start to like him in the mansion on Lake Como.
Guilty pleasure ~ Reese Witherspoon as Bradley Jackson. Reese really can do no wrong for me. Even with the over-the-top writing of this show. I just like her.
On the other hand, I really appreciated season 2 being realistically depicted over the start of pandemic early 2020. It was a blast from the past to see those first news stories again.
The timeline works up to the point where Tom Hanks gets Covid.
Recall season 1 was about the #MeToo movement.
There are some good moments in season 2. Bradley’s interview with Maggie Brener was awesome.
It’s almost worth watching.
But with all the Apple money, all the talent, I expected better.
… Should I watch season 3?
