It's nowhere near as interesting watching the calculating Jen subtly manipulate the grateful-to-be-forgiven Judy. That lack of urgency is, unfortunately, a mainstay of the sophomore season, which also lacks its predecessor's brutal intensity.

If you dare to look beyond the kitchen porn and killer acting, “Dead to Me” Season 2 offers nothing you should want to hold onto.

The two [Applegate and Cardellini] are great together even when “Dead to Me” doesn’t give them the scenes they deserve. Because they’re so linked, the second season episodes should be binged. Alone, they lack context; together, they’re like a tray of appetizers – easy to slide down.

Ultimately, the show is a comedy, after all. Cardellini is especially good this season, as we learn more about how Jen came about her extremely mellow demeanor. And Applegate is funny, as she was last season, as she curses, breaks down, and swigs wine with a vengeance, all while her world continues to fall apart.

The Dead to Me writers continue to be inordinately perceptive at observing how connected anger and grief are, and the many challenges involved with learning to cope and move forward. The result is another season of moving, thoughtful television.
