The second half was really great. My favorite episodes were the cab drivers, Denise's romantic history, and episode 9.

I loved S1 but this season is so much better, crazy to think. So many good episodes.

Thanksgiving, religion, I love NY, the dating app one, episode 9.

They really stepped it up

I laughed out loud a lot more than I can recall during the first season, and overall I liked it more.

I was not feeling the Italian woman at all though. That scene in Walgreens was so twee and precious, I felt like I was watching outtakes from some shitty Duplass brothers movie. That really didn't help during the last couple episodes during the more drawn out interactions between the two of them.

The ending was good though. It didn't give any of the characters any easy answers.

Brians Dad absolutely killed me. "I made a snack. It was the stew."

Thanksgiving episode.
Dev put her on blast and the amount of facial expressions had a negro tripping.











That shit was so funny and then Aunty calling her a thot.
That ending was so sweet too.

Oh man, the end of episode 5 was perfect. Superb acting from Aziz, he managed to nail the "oh shit I'm falling for this person" panic via his facial expressions amazingly.

On Episode 3, and I really don't remember the acting being this bad. Aziz and maybe that little kid from Episode 1 are the only half decent actors in the entire show. The parents are as bad as ever, Arnold is awful, that Navid kid was bad, it's really taking me out of the show.

The parents have always been terrible actors but I think it adds to the comedy, some how it works.

So many great things, and experimental stuff. I really enjoyed this season. My brother on the other hand absolutely hated stuff like the black and white episode and the party where it went completely silent while the deaf woman was the main character for a while. I thought it did a great job of conveying what they wanted to.

Nearly done with the season. This is one of those shows I have no problem going back and rewatching straight away.

Also the music in each episode is amazing. I wish it was the full soundtrack, but I'm definitely picking up the vinyl

totally agree.

LOVED the episode where aziz didn't even show up until the end at the cinema - some really cool little stories.

so much of this is obviously inspired by european film making, and i absolutely love that about it.

felt the emotional conflict between the two main characters real bad, really hit close to home for me.

god i love this show.

Great season. Could skip the first 2 episodes. The show is so much better when it isn't about Devs's love life. I was rooting against Dev the entire time!

Scroll up and read my post. I think so, yes. To expand my thoughts: I think that the last scene is from a couple of weeks after she was SUPPOSED to leave, but didn't, hence the snow outside the window, since it's still winter in NYC. Although the lack of a ring on Francesca is obvious, and the center of the shot (giving us a hint of a happy ending) the facial expressions of the characters betray nothing, so it's really open to interpretation. That said, maybe Francesca was awake before Aziz because she was reflecting on the reality of her choice, her family back home, and having second thoughts. This is honestly the only way I could see it playing out in the next season...we can't have too happy on an antagonist, after all.

Seriously. As a GAFer mentioned above, they haven't been so emotionally invested in a show ever. For me, some major parts of the stories hit me right in the soul because I've been there, man, I've been there. The absolutely best thing the show did with smaller touches is the lingering of shots, where you aren't able to avoid the fucking moment, the awkwardness, that you would in 99.9% of other shows. This is most evident in something we have rarely seen in a show like this, with the end of episode 5, where we are forced to agonize with Aziz. And I did. Man, I have felt what he was feeling in that moment. I'm projecting, but there were moments where I could see him playing out a scenario for a moment, thinking it may work, then sighing and thinking better of it..

Binged the whole show this evening. Loved every second of it. Liked how they brought back recurring characters from the previous season in select but great moments (his agent trying to pierce his soul had me on the floor).

Also I impulse bought the vinyl of the soundtrack and I don't even own a turntable. That cover really caught my eye.

I had forgotten how much I liked the first season until I started watching season 2. Now I'm finished and it's going to be a long wait for season 3...at least there better be a season 3! I don't know why but I got such a big kick out of all the scenes where they were just speaking Italian. Dev's enunciation and flourishes just cracked me up. Oh and I really really need to date an Italian girl one day.

Loved that moment. The series isn't really a "laugh out loud" comedy to me but that episode had a few genuine lol moments, including that one. Son of Scatman caught me by surprise too
