I can't do justice to the vibrant thrill of the central performances. The bond between Maya and Anna feels unspoken and lived-in, full of sentences that trail off into meaningful glances.

While I appreciate all of the work Konkle is turning in here in Season 2, especially as she plays a young teen caught in the middle of her parents' messy separation, it's clear that Maya's emotional journey is the anchor of PEN15 this season.

The potency of PEN15 is in the moments that send you spiralling back to adolescence, whether capturing the ache of a first crush or grappling with burgeoning adulthood.

Pen15 has definitely changed, but in ways that are almost entirely for the better. What was once a gimmick is now a thoroughly excellent and warm show.

This will presumably always be Erskine and Konkle's showcase - both should be awards contenders - but the second season accentuates casting director Melissa DeLizia's smart work selecting the younger actors.

These are the timeless, traumatic experiences I gasped at, surprised and impressed by how much they resembled my own memories of seventh grade. And they're what has made me fall deeper and deeper for the show.

"Pen15" will have you screaming at your fellow viewers over how hard it is to watch friends and families fight, and a half-hour later you'll be howling with laughter at their wild, endearing antics
