Critic Consensus: Enlightened is a must-see, continuing to show Amy Jellicoe as an empathetic, uneasy character who inspires to live positively.

By the time Enlightened reaches Todd Haynes' unspeakably beautiful Season Two entry, "All I've Ever Wanted," Amy's journey comes to reflect her repeated statement of purpose, "You can be wise, and almost whole."
Even as we laugh at Amy's loony attempts to forge a new world, we understand, and are moved by, her longing for a purer soul and a kinder society.
What's most surprising about Enlightened is the intensity with which Amy and her friends get to us, how much of ourselves we may see in them, if we only have the temerity to allow it.
Unleash Amy and watch the endless repercussions in unsparing detail and laugh sardonically at your own stumbling way through the poisoned world. That's post-millennial entertainment!
I have been thinking about Enlightened a lot in 2017. I recently re-watched the entire series and it felt as fresh as anything made this year.
