Audience Reviews for Broadchurch: Season 2

  • May 05, 2022
    Eventhough the attempts at making me sympathise with the defense attorney fall flat, i prefer this to the first season because it still has the same strength as the first season ( good acting, good drama) but i liked the mystery more.
  • Dec 02, 2021
    a complex yet perfectly paced season 2. Excellent performances as usual which ends in an exciting and interest set of events.
  • Oct 21, 2021
    it's all mostly action in the courtroom, lawyer speak and how to present the facts to your advantage. Drags to the end, and interesting to see the resolution and how the community handled it. Very different feel than the first season, more of drama than... mystery.
  • Feb 15, 2021
    Although season two may have lacked some of the thrills of season one, it still had plenty of drama and suspense to make up for it. The polished direction and strong performances from the entire cast keeps the series at a high bar and the introduction new characters and a new mystery to unravel keeps things fresh and unpredictable even if that mystery isn't quite as interesting as the previous.
  • Dec 14, 2020
    Season 2 was unbelievably bad, compared to season 1. Major plot holes, no real reason to actually continue, side stories that we are not interested in, with characters that don't make sense... My advise: Watch season 1 and then stop.
  • Oct 25, 2020
    Excellent all around
  • Oct 16, 2020
    Not a good mystery. Actually, the mystery itself and the people involved are insufferable. Additionally, this season makes the infuriating mistake of absolutely punishing the victims of the first season. And for what?
  • Sep 29, 2020
    The best season of the three. The best court scenes in all series history
  • Sep 02, 2020
    Here's a riddle: Q: Why are the makers of Broadchurch more energetic than other show makers? A: Because they used the least effort.
  • Sep 02, 2020
    There's a question I've been asking myself: why did I waste so much time watching this sh*tty excuse of a show?
