The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2 Reviews: Everything We Know So Far

My mailbox was flooded with screeners for Season 2 of The Sex Lives of College Girls a few weeks ago. I watched all six episodes made accessible to reviewers in only two days. I just couldn't help myself. That Saturday, I planned to do some housework and go to the gym. Although, as I kept playing the comedy by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, I found myself abandoning said goals.

In a time when there are too many television programs to keep up with, the return of The Sex Lives of College Girls is a welcome sight: a fully realized comedy that begs to be your next guilty pleasure.

While intriguing from the start, The Sex Lives of College Girls really shines as a binge-watch during the second half of Season 1. We owe a great deal of responsibility to our core girls for this shift. Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet), Whitney (Alyah Chanelle Scott), Bela (Amrit Kaur), and Leighton (Reneé Rapp) may or may not wind up being friends.

Through the first part of Season 1, they were primarily shown as allies or at least amicable roommates. Sometimes they'd go out together, but there was never any hope for a genuine connection. However, as the season progressed, those acquaintances developed into genuine friendships, and so did the show.

In Season 2, Kimberley, Whitney, Bela, and Leighton have formed their own group of outcasts. Furthermore, it's magnificent. Most episodes adhere to a tried-and-true format common to all successful comedies. When one of the females gets into a jam, she turns to her friend for help, who gives her sound counsel.

This is a notable comedy because of its predictability and its fantastic humor. However, there's always something more that makes you want to revisit these characters even after you've memorized their punchlines, and that's what makes a fantastic binge-watch. Whatever the secret ingredient is, The Sex Lives of College Girls has found it.

Maybe it's because each leading lady is believable as a part of the Greek culture of partying and late nights. Who hasn't sat next to a well-intentioned but bumbling nerd? Who among us hasn't been irritated by the cruising athlete or the sneering affluent prep schooler? Who among us hasn't felt the heat of the collegiate comedy scene? It's an inevitable consequence of the event, therefore you can't avoid it.

The actors do a great job of capturing the essence of these cliched college students. Rapp shines brightest once again. It's rare to find an actor like Rapp, who can make something as simple as a hair flip feel as sad as a coming out statement. Kaur's unique brand of lusty intensity is a constant standout as well.

The theme of optimism is especially strong in The Sex Lives of College Girls. Most people view their time at university as a period of limitless potential. College is when you figure out what you really want out of life, not what your parents or teachers want for you.

 You find your academic passions, you figure out your sexuality, and you begin to envisage your ideal future. The untidy trials and blunders of coming into one's own character characterize this time period. I could watch what Kaling and Noble have done all day since they have frozen in time what is otherwise a transient sensation.

The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2 Episodes 1 & 2 debut on HBO Max on Thursday, November 17.
