News & Interviews for PEN15: Season 2
Pen15 is giving us a rare, truthful glimpse into our daughter's future, the tumultuous middle school years looming on the horizon, the reality of what she'll likely experience. It's some of the most perfect practice an aspiring woke dad can get.
PEN15 is the weirder, funnier and completely un-sexy spiritual companion to Britney cradling that Teletubby, and the more soulful counterpart to "Not a Girl."
"Pen15" will have you screaming at your fellow viewers over how hard it is to watch friends and families fight, and a half-hour later you'll be howling with laughter at their wild, endearing antics.
Erskine and Konkle are still inexplicably wonderful at capturing the endlessly awkward physicality of adolescence.
As hilarious this show can be, it is just as deeply emotional. It's what makes it feel relevant to bring up in therapy!
The show gives serious gravity to the stakes for each character, where we're laughing at it because it's absurd and reminds us of middle school and how embarrassing it was, but also it reminds us of how visceral these feelings were.
There are numerous hilarious episodes and moments, but PEN15's second season excels in its beauty to examine how it takes the absurdity of childhood seriously.
Konkle and Erskine disappear even further into their characters; I found myself experiencing secondhand embarrassment (and empathy).
For those of us who weren't cool kids, PEN15 will unearth some more than likely repressed memories. Better than the first season, the show's second act gets a little deeper as its characters start to grow up and understand the complexities of life.
Maybe it's a product of just living within this world that the women have created, maybe its some actual sorcery they've employed, but at some point, you stop paying attention to the gag, and you start becoming genuinely invested in these girls' lives.
