Critic Reviews for Pose: Season 2

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (15)

Combined with substantial character development... this renewed sense of the ticking clock made for a sophomore season that elevated Pose from a comforting but cautious security blanket...into one of TV's smartest, funniest, and most urgent dramas

"Pose" is at its best when orbiting these three characters, which makes this season's first two outings a joy to watch.

June 12, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Pose has always been a worthwhile series rather than a well-crafted one, and its writing in Season 2 veers all over the place, between heartfelt, didactic, over-explanatory, and anachronistic.

June 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The second season of Pose is a lovely return to this family, although it does occasionally stumble due to some odd plotting or stylistic choices as well as its attempt to cover far more ground than it has the time for.

June 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The most glorious thing about Pose remains unchanged: At its heart, it's simply a family drama. The family is one its characters built themselves, in a world where love can be scarce.

June 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Even as its characters face the possibility of illness and death, Pose manages to be about life, love, and family. Its tagline couldn't be more apt: Live. Work. Pose.
