Vicious: Season 2


I almost fully recommend watching this season for the last scene. Season 2 is really and truly an improvement over the last and the last season got a 9/10, so think about that for a minute. I actually really appreciate what this season did, it goes from the sitcom format to more of a drama with the comedy still in it, this season put these characters in situations and places they've never been before and it is handled so incredibly well. Freddie and Stuart continue living their lives together but at the end of just the third episode we get kind of an unexpected bombshell, Freddie asks Stuart to marry him. And then the rest of the season is them just getting prepared for it, which is not only funny but I was very shocked at how many little character moments there are when if only for just a few moments these characters can have sweet and touching moments that give them so much more likability and enjoyment from the audience. It still has it's snarky humor and fun dialogue but it really pushes for this to be a much better show. I do feel it makes that full leap from a 9 to a 10/10, and I have to say the wedding was very nice. I kinda like how not a lot is made of it, it's not trying to be this television event of the decade because these two people have been together for 50 years so they don't need anything extravagant or put a lot of worry into how the wedding will turn out. They're just happy to be doing it. I wish more shows did that instead of trying to be ratings gold and make it into something more than it really is. And the final scene of the season is one of the most heartbreaking things I've seen in a predominantly comedic show, it's brutally real and doesn't pull any punches to manipulate your feelings. It's a truly human moment that countless individuals can identify with and is something everyone must one day face. The whole season was excellent, but that simple moment alone gets this to be a 10/10. There is no doubt in my mind that it deserves it, and I'm just so happy to talk about it and share it with others. When you've been doing this for almost 5 years you occasionally think of this as a job, but then there's moments like this where you can really appreciate the material you're talking about and take great pride in sharing it with other people. And I'm just so happy to show my love for this wonderful little show that quite honestly always deserves more recognition in my eyes. But this story has yet to truly end.
