One nerd. Two boyfriends. It’s about to get messy. Season 2 dropped on Netflix July 15th, 2021.

It was great, and stronger than the first season because all the characters were more had storylines for everyone.

Really enjoyed (I think it was) ep 5 where we get an ep from a non-Devi perspective, and a new narrator to boot.

Yeah, I binged all ten episodes in one night (semi-shamefully). Everything works, and there is a big set up for season 3.

This show is so cute.

I liked Nalini getting a love interest, and while no one could live up to hot, dead Mohan, Common is an acceptable rebound (I do not recall his character name though, so I'm obviously not attached.).

I also liked Mohan's mother coming to live with them. All of Devi's female relatives are a delight.

I was torn on Kamala's plot line - her coworkers were a bit too Big Bang Theory nerd stereotypes for my taste, but I liked her realization that her boyfriend's career advice underestimated her.

My one small quibble is that I would prefer to just move on from the love triangle already. Let Ben and Aneesa be happy - our Devi is infinitely resourceful at producing drama, and we've had two seasons of love triangle already. I know it is a classic rom com trope, and it doesn't bother me, but I'd like to see Devi's plot go somewhere new. (Plus, seems like we're getting a possible love triangle for Kamala, so all the more reason to ditch Devi's.)

I'm still on episode 6, but I'm starting to come to the conclusion that Devi is a real jerk. Again and again she does things that are hurtful to the people who care about her and then tries to just cover the whole thing up and then expects it all to go away if she apologizes. Is this supposed to be "growing up is hard" behaviour or is she deliberately written as a jerk?

Keep going, for sure. Devi is definitely supposed to be a jerk. But she does a LOT of growing in the second half of the season.

I love her character. It was only this season I got why John McEnroe narrates her episodes - like him, she’s full of rage and does dumb, hurtful things because of it. But we start to understand this season where that comes from, and she really does start to grow out of it.

One thing I liked about this season was that it really showed where every character had room for growth, including the adults. The show allows its characters to be messy and to fuck up, but it also allows them the grace to learn from their mistakes.

I laughed a lot but I also cried several times in the last few episodes. This show is so great.

This was exactly my sentiment. I thought Season 2 was an improvement over the already terrific Season 1: deeper, richer, more fully fleshed out. As they reached the very end of the season, though, when it became obvious they were setting up yet another season of “Ben or Paxton, who will she choose?” I rolled my eyes.

Loved the addition of Nirmala. She stole almost every scene she was in.
