The first season of Flaked was alright, it had some problems with random overly dramatic elements coming into play though this second season is just pointless. It didn't really have much of a focus or purpose and just when it could have been reaching one it ended abruptly. I didn't look at how long it was as I assumed it would be similar or longer than last year and was disappointed at the pitiful number of episodes. For those that liked the first season it's basically just the same with everyone reverting.
Things have gotten horrible in Venice during the time gap with every characters from the first season coming along to say they hate Chip (Will Arnett). This gets old fast and so does the rest of the show, it wasn't particularly interesting despite some great looking shots of the area. I will also comment that the music was well chosen, but the plot wasn't even there really. It seemed like they had ideas of where to place the characters following the fallout of what happened last season and then decided to take them back steps. It doesn't make any sense.
I find the idea of Flaked to be a good one, but it's just not being fleshed out enough. I don't know if it's the ever shorter second season or that there aren't many good ideas on what to do. It's not entirely comedy and yet the dramatic elements don't make it something to get emotionally attached to. The acting was alright, but nothing different from them just going along with it.
I did want to enjoy Flake as the premise is good, the first season was alright and they left it off where things could have gotten interesting. Instead everyone had a downturn with the worst of luck presented to each person out there. I also wasn't a fan of the wellness center portions as they didn't tie into anything. These sessions had suggested an event that could happen with good reasoning, yet they were mostly wasted. I just felt like this second season was a complete waste of time and I'm sure I could sit through another repetitive season of this.
