Critic Reviews for Vida Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (10)

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

May 28, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | 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…

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.

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

    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.

    This series is awful. What do people see?

    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.
