I enjoyed the first season of Avenue 5, but after such a long gap between entries, I wasn't sure it would grasp me like before. Although the premiere was a rocky start, it quickly finds its footing to bring back the dark comedy I so enjoyed in its first go around. In fact, it has become even darker. These absurd and morbid storylines work thanks to the hilarious cast led by Hugh Laurie, but it’s a true ensemble that brings its A-game (including what is easily my favourite Josh Gad performance). The series is a specific brand of humour, but it works for me.
