In this deeper connection with characters, Casual feels all the more real.

Privilege isolates and devastates people in both directions, and somewhere in its bones, Casual knows this.

The laughs (albeit small chuckles mostly) remain and Watkins and Dewey continue to be impress.

A self-satisfied smirk stretched out into 30-minute installments, the Hulu series hides its lack of profundity and originality behind a faux-edginess.

Casual -- the let's-call-it-a-sitcom starring Michaela Watkins as a single-mom therapist -- proceeds from a place of diffidence, of setting up the mildest of jokes and seeing how softly the show can make them land.

If you were there from the start, know that Casual isn't racing through story in this second season so much as it's pushing outward in a show of confidence that it's going to be around for a while.

The acting is fantastic across the board and the writing consistently sharp and irreverent.

Jun 8, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Where Casual excels is in making the steps toward personal growth feel as real and meaningful as the setbacks, even though they unfold within the heightened world of a television dramedy.

What especially makes this season of Casual work so well is its emphasis on friendship.

Anyone looking for easy laughs, look elsewhere. But you would be hard pressed to find a comedy with more substance than Casual.

Audience Reviews for Casual: Season 2

While this season wasn't enjoyable as the other season it's still very watchable.

While Season 1 was great it missed the mark a couple times because of it's shorter length of episodes and many storylines randomly ending towards the end. Season 2 however gives us a much more focused look at the 3 leads and reminds us how they and feel and puts them into situations that turn casual relationships into genuine commitments as well as having the characters have to go through change and how that process is for all of them. It also gives us a much more interesting story and gives all 3 of the characters a lot more to do and is significantly darker than last season while still having some light laughs throughout and ends in a very hopeful positive direction for the show that makes us think that these characters might finally find happiness and might be ready to finally face reality and make a change to there repetitive lifestyle. Grade for the Season: A+

I had such high hopes for this series. Sadly, its been disappointing. The first season was smart, well written and had more depth, even though the chatacters were barely getting introduced. Season 2 has left me with a sour taste, to say the least. I keep watching because I keep waiting for some miracle but, its not happening. Looks like the writers and actors to a hiatus and they called it season 2.

Loved Season 1, looking forward to more.

refreshing to see a real love scenario that is elevated above social construct of hetero/homo division in this last episode. really evolved shit.
