What is it?

The 2019 American anthology horror TV show The Purge (Season 2).

What is it about?

This is how Wikipedia describes this anthology TV show:

The second season begins just as an annual Purge night is drawing to a close, and follows different characters dealing with the consequences of that night and investigating conspiracies in the year before the next purge.

One story involves ex-police officers who have become bank robbers.

Another story follows a NFFA detective following a suspicious killing of a scientist friend and discovers many of their peers have also been killed in suspicious circumstances.

Other stories include college fraternity members who went out on Purge Night to collect items on a scavenger hunt, before having to defend themselves and dealing with PTSD afterwards, as well as a husband and wife who survive an assailant on Purge Night, only to discover that it was a hitman sent to kill the husband and begin to investigate why.

Clear connections between these characters and their stories become apparent as the plot unfolds.

My Thoughts

This season had a strong start with things starting during The Purge and they explored some things that I have wondered about that have never been explored in the rest of The Purge franchise so far, and so I was liking this season better than the first; but this show did not spend enough time in The Purge in the beginning, and the college student’s storyline was the worst and brought the show down.

Fortunately the season was still pretty good but it did not keep up the strong start that it had, and so now I am not exactly sure which season I liked better but I am leaning toward this season being better; either way, both seasons were better than expected.

This season had better acting, better directing, better cinematography, and a better start.

The end,
