FX's dark comedy Baskets continues to clown around in Season 2. After leaving home Chip Baskets joins a homeless group of street performers, but is forced to seek help from his mother when tragedy strikes. And while helping her son, Mrs. Baskets strikes up an unlikely friendship that leads to something more. This season Louie Anderson steps up and takes on a bigger role, and Zach Galifianakis stretches himself a bit, doing more switches between twin brothers Chip and Dale; further developing each of them. Yet the writing is still pretty weak, letting some of the sketches go on too long and leaving several story threads undeveloped. Still, Season 2 of Baskets, while it has problems, delivers some laughs and has some poignant things to say about family.
