‘THE UNICORN,’ SEASON TWO: FINDS MORE MAGIC BUT LEAVES WITH QUESTIONS

April 16, 2022 5 Comments

In 2020, I started watching a show I didn’t know much about, but wanted to see what it would offer regardless. That show is CBS’ The Unicorn, a charming half-hour comedy that became something to anticipate the return of.

The Unicorn, Season Two CBS TV Review

Despite having no idea who she is or even her name, Wade (Walton Goggins) is still enchanted by his meeting with a stranger in the park. So much so, he, along with his friends Forrest (Rob Corddry) and Ben (Omar Benson Miller), make attempts to find her; all with no information on her. Having spent months healing and then going on casual dates in the aftermath of his wife’s death, Wade finally feels like he made a connection. Trouble is, he doesn’t have a clue who this woman is.

Weeks pass, and it’s again time for his daughter’s, Natalie and Grace (Makenzie Moss, Ruby Jay) to return to school. This prompts Wade to decide on resuming his life without the search. Only then, fate does intervene, and maybe, just maybe, he might meet the person he’s meant to be with…

This is one of those shows I didn’t know what to expect, but as I said in the first season review, I watched it after seeing Goggins in Justified. Obviously these are two very different roles, but surprisingly, he plays this role quite well. What’s even more fun is that Natalie Zea, also from Justified has a recurring role in this second season. A season that while imperfect is mostly still a gem.

Some of the stories feel as if they’re trying “too hard” to fit into a mold, and these are the episodes that disappoint. But like most anything, the show, as a whole, bounces back and again finds its footing. Going back to the charming and wonderful little show that it can be, and better yet, knows it is. The cast is still good, and the characters of Delia and Michelle constantly make me laugh, especially because of their wildly different personalities.

All that said, if you don’t like cliffhangers, you’d best not watch the final episode. It has one and CBS, sadly, opted not to renew this. The show is, as ever, all sorts of lovely. Natalie and Grace don’t have the same screen time early on as they did in season one, but the adults still have plenty of moments in these season two stories. Some of which I’m not very fond of and find unnecessary, but others remind me why I love this show. Plus, the warm camaraderie between the characters is one of the shows best assets and I am here for more of this.

Content: the season deals with hot button social issues. There’s some profanity (mild) and innuendo along with some sex discussion. A man ends up having sex with a woman about to marry. Later, that causes a kerfuffle that leads into that cliffhanger.

      It’s super sweet, Ash! If you do give it a change, let me know what you think. I don’t feel like many people enjoyed it so maybe I’m in the minority. :)
