I had fun with the first season of Netflix as The Lincoln Lawyer now the second season is coming out, but it’s split into two parts. Should you invest your time in this first part, or should you just wait for it all to come out at once after garnering massive media attention? From his previous high-profile case, defense attorney Mickey holler finds himself overwhelmed with new cases, one of which gets him unwittingly personally involved. Now I don’t really know what this trend is with splitting up Seasons, but almost all of the time it becomes a disservice to the fans. Now, obviously, this isn’t the case every single time, but the majority of the time it seems to ring true season.
Two of The Lincoln Lawyer picks up with Mickey holler inundated with requests for representation, as well as media interviews, making him one of the most sought after defense. Attorneys in La the second season is a little more convoluted and packed than the previous first season, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing, but there is a lot more to focus on and I found that the narrative was bouncing around between several character. Arcs almost like there wasn’t enough to tell about Mickey and his case, and there are minor cases that he takes on that interspersed with the main case, and sometimes these are interesting, but ultimately they only work to show how clever Mickey is when it comes to working. His opponents and the main story arc. I thought the season was taking on turned out to be something different and again, that’s not a bad thing, but it was sort of a shift in the storytelling, because I thought we were going One Direction and then we just switch and go someplace else now.
I’M liking the complications that continue to rise in Mickey’s main case he’s emotionally invested, which can be both good and bad, but every time it seems he’s taking a step forward. He gets surprised by something new and takes a couple of steps in Reverse. It does work to make the story intriguing, but also begins to feel more drawn out than necessary that this could have been told just in a much more efficient manner. And maybe that’s because the main case doesn’t actually have the meat to sustain a full 10 episode season Arc. Now I mean I don’t know yet since part.
One only contains five episodes and the story isn’t anywhere close to being completed. Maybe it will feel unnecessarily stretched out or maybe the second half contains a ton of mystery and suspense and makes it all worthwhile Nev Campbell returns as holler’s first ex-wife and I’m really enjoying their Dynamic. It’S strained, but in process slowly trying to progress into something positive. There’S a weird Arc with Campbell’s character and her job that feels like it might go somewhere, but it also feels like just a random story: complication that is meant to infuse more drama. But at this point, because we’re not really given much, it feels pointless to continue to dwell on her struggles.
We also get more with Lorna and Cisco and they’re fun as a Duo bring in some humor as well as frustration, but their storylines are also taking a lot of the focus. This first part, which can be interesting to watch at times but, like I’ve, said before. It also feels like a larger distraction to Mickey’s case. I really wish the season wouldn’t have been split, because I genuinely can’t tell if some of these story elements actually create a meaningful addition to the overall season or if they just serve as filler, in an overall thin story, and the same goes for Izzy. I really loved her introduction into the first season and I really enjoyed the theme of get chances that was Illustrated through her character, but here she feels a little sidelined, not getting much story prominence, even though there are some small offshoots that do focus on her.
Now I really enjoy Manuel Garcia ruleful as Mickey holler he’s got the right amount of hubris and charm. Little arrogance you know mixed with Suave Charisma and while his actions could be seen as slimy at times, I never feel that way about him, and I mean that’s a huge difference there, because if he were slimy, he wouldn’t be relatable or a character that I’d want To support or see succeed, the episodes are only about 45 to 50 minutes, so the binge is a quick one, but I think even with that, you might be better served in find it much more engaging if you just wait until August 3rd for the second part, To release so that, then, you can binge all 10 episodes at once. You’Ll be able to have the complete story arc, and ideally, since I haven’t even seen the second part, yet the story will focus more on Mickey’s main case and introduce more Intrigue and mystery. That will make the series a more captivating watch as it stands. Mystery is only so so I mean I’m enjoying the setup, and while I could use less of the tangents that the story takes on Manuel Garcia, rufo in the lead role, he continues to crush it.
The addition of Lana paria through the cast and it’s a new and frustrating Dynamic, and hopefully it will also lead to some additional Intrigue. The pacing is mixed thanks mainly to the shifting story Focus, so I’m hoping that the second part Finds Its footage, which will allow the series to regain the Allure and charm, as well as engagement. That was present in that first season. There’S no sex or nudity a lot of profanity and some violence. Now I’m going to hold off on giving this a score, since it’s literally only half the story, but do know that while I had some fun while watching I’d recommend waiting until the full season is available to get the story as a whole.
So, are you a fan of this series or even the novels, that it’s based on who’s, your favorite character? Let me know in the comments below, if you enjoyed this review.
