Just jumping into season 2 today -- so far episode 1 was very tense...which, I guess is appropriate, given the situation? Eagerly hoping these two dummies get their act together!

Okay yeah, I did mainline the entire season (just 6 eps) in one go. And I really enjoyed it. It's *hard* watching her act like a numbskull, but it's supposed to be hard. The bit at the top of one ep in the bathroom with the (redacted) shows what an actual superstar Rose Matafeo is -- funny, moving, ridiculous all at once. I hope we get season 3!

I can't believe they pulled off a second season as good as the first. Excellent work all around. I love this show so much.

I appreciate that while he's not as messy as Jessie, Tom is still pretty messy. He doesn't have it figured out either.

This is so cute and sweet. I got a little teary at the end of episode 6.

I don't know if Jessie and Tom's relationship will stand the test of time but I think they've learned a lot from each other and they'll continue to learn from each other. They make each other better.

Rose Matafeo is a wonder and I love her.
