    After seeing Season 2, I am reminded that TV programming can, in the right hands, be relevant, brilliant and ground-breaking.

    The second season of ABC drama American Crime is a great example to show us why are anthology series so popular nowadays(Fargo, American Horror Story, American Crime Story). The creative team behind the series knows exactly how much time they have to deliver a great story and finish it satisfactorily. They are simply great. And AC2 is no exception. In only ten 40-minute episodes the producers manage to do a whole lot. They bring us an emotional story of four damaged teenagers, four very different mothers who cope with shows' events in very different ways and three fathers, who try to be there for their kids in best ways possible. The show outdoes itself by dealing with our, post(?)modern society issues like inequality, homophobia, racism and sexual assault. There is no way around complimenting the stellar cast-led(this season) by Lily Taylor and mostly underrated Connor Jessup. The supporting cast(Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Trevor Jackson, Joey Pollari, Angelique Rivera, Regina King, Hope Davis,Emily Bergl, André L. Benjamin) all bring their own spark to their respective roles. Watching this show-remember, it is not about truth, its not about happy endings or even satisfying conclusions. Its about "normal" people bumping into the consequences of their actions while facing harsh reality. And even if we don't know everything that happened by the end, I do know that this show deserves your attention.

    Awesome series. Topic that has never been covered before but, we know it and like things do. Handled with all the emotion that is expected from each of the groups involved with a perfect cast of actors

    Talk about a bingewatch must! Provocative, engrossing, smartly written and beautifully acted by everyone involved.

    This show makes you think about "truth" how one person's truth may be different from another's. It's all about perspective.

    I don't dig the "there aren't resolutions in real life" ending, but this was an incredible season of television. Seeing that there are people that are willing to take these chances and tell these types of stories is really inspiring to someone who wants to be a writer like myself. If you haven't seen this then you're missing out.

    This is one of the few tv shows that are actually hard to look at, i found the show hitting too close too home way too many times, the incredible performances elevates it even more
