Togetherness: Season 2 Reviews

February 29, 2016
As in life, conflict resolution often comes down to people speaking in a normal tone of voice, or not talking, or just embracing what's obvious and unstated, which makes it no less powerful. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Togetherness has arrived for a second season with all its powers intact and familiar characters deepened.
February 23, 2016
The affair continues to exist as a bomb under the table, and we're left wondering when this season it will go off.
February 22, 2016
Togetherness, co-created by Zissis and brothers Mark and Jay Duplass, for all the unhappiness its characters regularly experience, is full of happy surprises.
February 22, 2016
The series is very good at what it does, but I can't help thinking that more Gonzaga, Peet and Gallagher - in upbeat story form - would go exceptionally well with less dire versions of the excellent Lynskey, Zissis and Duplass.

As similar as it seems to be to the rest of the L.A. depression shows, Togetherness offers four people to actually root for.

While Mark and Jay Duplass certainly do push their show to new and exciting highs and lows, Togetherness is still the same magnificent creation we fell in love with a year ago.
February 22, 2016
As it stands, everyone made some drastic choices during the season finale and had to live with it.
February 21, 2016
The show doesn't ask you to step into a boldly realized fantasy world, or attempt to seduce you with sex and melodrama. Its goals are more straightforward. If there is any credo to the series, it's that the only thing certain thing in life is uncertainty.

Over a decade ago, Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant's The Office brought about a new era of cringe comedy, but with Togetherness, that balance swings too far into cringe and not enough into comedy.

Love, Togetherness suggests, is not about being constantly together. It's about having bonds that stretch as you inevitably drift apart, and faith that they might eventually snap back.
February 19, 2016
This was a terrific show last year, it's even better this year, and I'm glad the TV universe continues to have room for something so great in its smallness.

Too much of it feels like epilogue instead of another chapter.
February 18, 2016
Zissis and Peet pluck the heartstrings as Alex and Tina do the dance of the modern rom-com, often with different partners, but it's Brett and Michelle whose struggles to connect make Togetherness a little too real to be funny.
February 18, 2016
Togetherness is a mildly charming dramedy of self-involvement that ignores the crowded, cutthroat TV landscape it's a part of.

In its second season, Togetherness blooms into a stirring study of modern parenting as an experiment in creation and imagination.

This season, the show does a fine job of demonstrating how frustrated film editor Brett (Mark Duplass) uses creativity as both an avenue of retreat and a tool of liberation.
