I haven't said a thing about it all season - the past 2 months!
Eight episodes of pure freaking awesome! No, really. It is so
much better than Season 1.
They got rid of Leslie Kay. I have no great dislike for the actress, but she just didn't gel for me and I'm glad they didn't just try to keep making that work.
The writing - it ain't perfect, but what is? - but it's also a hundred times better than last season. It's broken into actual episodes, so that it's watchable - episodic television vs. a movie that you just see in spaced out, weekly chunks.
And while we're talking about episodes, lets mention episode lengths. Because, guys? The little ticker said 18:36 or something like that for episode time the other day. No lie. None of this three minute crap.
As for the plot/characters, well the season started with a bang, and it's continued on nicely. There's only been one episode where I've been a little meh. One episode - the most recent - even made me write fic. Which is awesome. The Lara/Ani progressed on as you would expect from the previous season but with better chemistry and a bit of tension lurking in the background which added some spice to it. Gina and Ani aren't together. Not yet. But that doesn't mean that their scenes aren't filled with every bit of the chemistry they possess and all the layers that Otalia brought to the table.
Well worth watching if you're an Otalia fan jonesing for a new fix, or just for someone who wants to watch a good show with girls making out with girls. Girls who just so happen to be incredibly hot.
Because if possible, Venice got even prettier than last season. Seriously.
And, why, you ask, if this is as awesome as you say, have you not been rhapsodizing about it here on LJ? Well, I have just not on my LJ. My bad, check out Rysler's awesome Venice reviews here
