Critic Reviews for Vida Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (12)

Vida's sophomore season lacks the brashness of its debut year, and certain supporting characters...But the things that the show does so well are without parallel.

Jun 21, 2019 | Full Review…

That these conversations are happening at all in a mainstream TV drama feels profound. That Saracho is able to weave them so fluently into a series that reverberates with the aches and joys and conflicts of everyday life is remarkable.

May 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's becoming especially important that we support and champion these types of series-and Vida is certainly a show that you won't regret watching.

May 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Confident, clever, and bursting with style, "Vida" offers more of what you love in a richer second season.

May 23, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

There was suddenly a lot going on, all of it smart, much of it sexy with a solid mix of pathos and humor... Vida had ceased to be an interesting world in search of a TV show, and come into its own.

Sep 12, 2019 | Full Review…

There's nothing else in the TV landscape quite like this hypersexual, celebratory show -- in its embrace of Hispanic soapiness in a millennial English-speaking story, and in its dedication to female fantasy.

Jul 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Vida is the rare show on TV with a real understanding of how class identities intersect with race, sexuality, and gender.

Jul 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Those kind of characters and storylines could easily translate into a soap opera or an earnest and preachy show, but showrunner Tanya Saracho, who comes from the world of theater, makes sure that doesn't happen.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Vida dives into the cultural make-up of this Californian Latin-community without leaving one stone uncovered.

May 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Characters on Vida often behave stupidly, but this is a smart, smart show, one that looks at culture on high and low levels, from debates about the flavor and significance of Valentina hot sauce to a point-by-point breakdown of Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird.

May 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Vida is fearless and moving art. I'm looking forward to seeing it continue developing on all these foundational themes it has set, y mas espero.

Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Vida Season 2 is an exquisite and flawless season of television.

Audience Reviews for Vida: Season 2

    More of the first season. If low polish soap dramas are your thing, this might not even be for you.
  • Jun 15, 2019
    I think this may be the best television series I've ever seen.
  • Jun 10, 2019
    This series is awful. What do people see?
  • Jun 04, 2019
    Season 2 is absolutely fabulous. I LOVE this show! Characterisation is superb with will real depth and substance to all the main characters. This show has such an authentic feel to it and that applies to the roles, the neighborhood and the story.

    This show just gets better and better. The first season was great and amazing but the second is richer in all the right places. The second season flawlessly covers numerous topics including gentrification, LGBT discourse, etc but what I love most is how we're able to further explore our protagonists, Lyn and Emma, more on a deeper level. I'm glad we were able to see some vulnerable moments from Emma. We not used to see that from her but that's what makes her my favorite character. It'll take some time but that's a journey I can't wait to explore/see. Can't wait to get more out of them both in the next season! Character development in this is so rewarding to see. These characters are just so intriguing to watch and the actors who play them are just simply astonishing. I binged the second season a few days ago and haven't thought about anything else since. I will happily and proudly scream from the rooftops that everyone should watch this show because it's that fucking good! This show deserves so much attention. I'm not Latino (I'm black) but I appreciate this show so much and am so happy it exists. STARZ RENEW THE DAMN SHOW!!...please. and to Tanya Saracho and the writer's room, YOU ARE BRILLIANT! releasing the whole season to binge was bittersweet. I WANT MORE!

    I've got the chili sweats. My wife says "It's about time they showed a wiener ( in a movie)." Can these Latina sisters put a bridel on the heat and conquer the business world ? Based on the amount of liquor they give away down at the bar, I dunno. Can I have cebolla on my taco please ? No cilantro.
