Those who have an affinity for explicit scatological humor may find all this hilarious. Personally, it made me miss the refined sophistication of season one's dick jokes.
October 10, 2018
This time around, "American Vandal" hits some great highs. Yet the series takes a step back from its incredible first season.

It gives you a visceral reaction when you see something so dark, and you want to look away, but you're compelled to know who is behind the madness.

Though American Vandal's second season is notably dynamic, a rollercoaster throughout, it's still a show about shit, teens, and revenge... It's manipulative genius, parody without comedy, and I'd watch it again.

The thing to know about Season 2 of American Vandal is that it is, against all odds, a pretty dark ride.

It spins sh-t into pure gold.

Halfway through watching season two of Netflix's "American Vandal," I paused the show and screamed in delight at the well-executed poop humor - to no one except my dog.

Maybe it seems like a stretch to call a show about dick jokes and poop one of the most well-crafted and self-aware works to come out of the last few years, but in season two, American Vandal has only continued to surpass expectations.

Brace yourself: This literal s**t show just might hit you in the feels.
November 5, 2018
The whole thing is remarkably refreshing, and its understanding of youth shows serious maturity.
September 11, 2018
Moments like Peter and Sam having an honest conversation with a fellow 16-year-old kid about the exhaustion of being judged, and living up to pre-conceived, unrealistic standards, are when the show finds its moments of brilliance.
September 12, 2018
As the season approaches its conclusion, it becomes harder to ascertain what exactly American Vandal finds funny.

The writing and development of this mockumentary series is pure genius

Season 2 is more serious, and the "twist" is much more distressing than season 1's. In a show framed by social media, American Vandal makes us question how we consume it.

Though its themes aren't as serious as racism in America, they're still potent and palpable. American Vandal's execution of its mission last season was pretty flawless.
September 13, 2018
There's still that delightfully juvenile hook...but there's an attempt at leveling-up that I find admirable. The drawback, again, is that it loses some of that rascal-y playfulness it had the first time around.
September 13, 2018
It's impressive how many themes it touches on, but it's even more amazing that a show about finding a "Turd Burglar" deftly comments on these issues with such a delicate touch.

With its stellar ensemble of returning and new cast members and a solid writing ethos, chances are no one is going to mind. Even if poop is involved. (A lot of poop is involved.)

The stakes are higher and the relationships more tangled this season, but don't expect it to be as funny as its novel debut.

That is American Vandal's best and most unsettling trick: It dares you to play in the gutter, and then shows you that the elevated place you came from isn't as clean as you thought it was.
