Must See TV: Grantchester: Season Two
You know that moment when you finish a shows season and you think, "oh my goodness, this was the best ever and it just cannot get any better!" Well this is what happened to me after watching Season One of Grantchester. When the first season ended I eagerly anticipated the second season but I had no clue that it would leave me completely wowed. Wowed is the best word I can think of to describe this season.
The relationships between Geordie and Sydney and Sydney and Amanda come to boil and the results are surprising and lovely all at once. This season they changed things up a bit by having a crime that happens in the first episode cross over to the entire series. The writers do an outstanding job weaving that story line along with the relationships of all the main characters as well as solving other crimes and dealing with the morality of the first crime. Did that make you dizzy? Trust me it works out a lot better than I just made it sound.
Believe me when I say this to you, Season Two of Grantchester is incredible. The entire team behind the show really went the extra mile but all in a way that kept the show true to the story that started it all. A white collared religious man who ends up solving murders on the side and how his hobby affects everyone around him.
Have you seen Grantchester yet? If so, are you all caught up with the second season? Did the last fifteen minutes of the last episode leave you just as pleasantly surprised and bewildered as it did me?
