Audience Reviews for The Great: Season 2

  • Nov 14, 2022
    Es increíble como esta temporada ha sido mejor que la anterior, los personajes son cada vez mas únicos y solidos en sus arcos en los que se desarrollan de una manera muy orgánica, no hay un personaje que me parezca forzado su inclusión o su cambio. El nivel de Elle Fanning es toda una sorpresa para mi, destaca en todo momento y eso hace que la serie crezca con ella.

    Wasn't sure what to expect but this is one of the best comedies I've seen for along time. Historically accurate on many fronts (and some not so much) and hilariously funny. Well written and perfectly cast. If you're sensitive to over the top swearing maybe not for you.
  • Aug 28, 2022
    This continues to be weirdly good
  • Aug 26, 2022
    Love the fact that the second season pulls on your heart strings a bit more. Gives us even more of a range to Elle's already outstanding performance. Can't wait for season 3
  • May 12, 2022
    So very good. Great acting, writing, casting. Yes, it can be very "adult" but it has quite a heart at the center of it all.
  • May 03, 2022
    I love where s02 took the characters! Looking forward to s03.
  • Apr 23, 2022
    I couldn't remember what happened during the first season, but I definitely enjoyed this season more. The social gatherings this season are hilarious. Can't wait for season 3.
  • Apr 19, 2022
    For me, a significant deterioration from the first season. The previously witty writing and imaginative naughtiness has been largely replaced by a predictable, meandering script and a non-stop barrage of profanity for profanity's sake. Please don't do a third season if it's going to be anything like this; it's especially hard to bear as The Great initially so completely lived up to its name.
  • Mar 28, 2022
    A great blend of comedy and drama in a not-quite-accurate historical setting. While it wasn't quite as compelling as the first season, I still couldn't stop watching it.
  • Mar 03, 2022
    extremely boring and annoying.
