News & Interviews for Santa Clarita Diet: Season 2
If Santa Clarita Diet is going to succeed with self-awareness, it needs to give Joel and Sheila as many honest, joke-breaking scenes as their daughter (Abby still feels like the only real character on the show), and it needs to amp up the insanity.
Instead, it remains as static and unyielding as it's possible for a 10-episode comedy series to be.
...there's something nice about seeing a family sticking by each other through thick and thin, even when their matriarch is using a human heart as a stress ball.
The writing remains very crisp and the action is punctuated by the show's comically theatrical gore. It is a reliably amusing series, and its return is very welcome.
Season two took the series from light-hearted entertainment to full-blown addictive television. There's gore and a lot of gross-out gags, but more than that there's a ton of heart.
