This show was last year’s biggest surprise for me. I thought I’d get a cheesy Hollywood soap - and yeah, that is why I started watching, a cheesy Hollywood soap with Josh Henderson - but I got something very different, or should I say, something much more.
The first season was a really smart, thought-provoking tale exploring subjects like freedom, boundaries, identity and in the end, honesty, what is the truth and what is real.
The season one finale was fittingly called The New Narrative. Much of the season delved into narrative, who is writing yours? What is the story we want to tell and who has the power to change it.
In the last episode it is all about finding your true story. It was a good episode, but I must admit, I was an itsy bit disappointed over the last second ending. I was hoping for something else from Megan.
Season 2 (premiered Mar 11) starts with The Long Game and already from the beginning we are back to the narrative. It all has to look a certain way, but whether it is true and honest, well… It is not immediately as fetching with its revenge theme, but I do long for more.
“We all want to realise the greatest version of ourselves” Henderson’s Kyle claims at the end, and I do hope that season 2 will rise to the greater version of itself.
