Following on from the great reception to Season 1, with a show that felt so unique and fresh, meant Michaela Coel had a big challenge on her hands, but she took it in her stride and ran with.

This second season is better than the first, even if only slightly, and it feels even more willing to take risks and address unique topics.

The show is less centred on Tracey (Coel) and her friends, and more focused this time on Tracey and her family, and it makes some fascinating observations.

The main topics the show tackles are sex, religion, race, and class, all of which are huge topics to explore and Coel’s writing tackles them with such a brave and hilarious angle that it feels like the first time they’ve been shown.

Michaela Coel has often been compared to Phoebe Waller-Bridge (I wish people could just acknowledge they are two brilliant writers that shouldn’t just be compared because they are women and should be allowed to just be brilliant in their own right) and if you have to make that comparison, I guess this could be similar to Waller-Bridge doing the more light comedy of ‘Crashing’ before the emotional masterpiece of ‘Fleabag’, and Coel goes on from here to make the remarkable ‘I May Destroy You’.

I think this show is a real hidden gem that most of the general public has still yet to see and it’s a comedic treat.

Rating = 4/5
