Season two of Legendary is challenging itself and getting even better. Yes, the missing audience made some situations more awkward and intense, but the second season of the HBO Max Original show rose and made a splash.
For those who don’t know, Legendary is a voguing reality competition series, exploring the world of ball culture. Season one ended last year with the start of the pandemic, missing the audience. Sadly, all of season two had to filmed during the pandemic, so no audience. But that’s the only not-so-great thing about this season.
Legendary moved to LA for its season two. Yes, it was mainly due to the pandemic, but that gave them a bigger stage, better production, and even bigger guests.
In fact, the production value of the performances alone this year is worth all the first season (no offense). Some performances were just outstanding and Emmy worthy. To be honest, few of the houses this season where underwhelming. Most of the were either REALLY great, or just stellar.
In addition, some minor changes made some episodes even more exciting: from not revealing the score straight away all the way to hiding the house member identity during certain challenges. I can see the producers experimenting with different ideas to keep the competition fresh.
Now let’s hope that HBO Max renews the show for yet another season, and fingers crossed we get the audience back!
Should you watch it?
If you enjoyed season one, you’ll love this one. Season two takes the performances to the next level, as well as the house rivalries.
