What I’m Watching: Physical (Season Premiere)

Physical: Season 2, Episode 1 “Don’t You Want Me” (B+)

It’s a rare case these days of a show returning for another season in under a year, and it’s nice to have this one back. I’ll admit I didn’t remember much of what happened last time, but this new introduction was helpful in catching me up to what’s going on. It’s interesting to see how Sheila is now operating, determined to control her instincts but also just as set on not letting her husband or anyone else control her. Danny is still as clueless as ever, thinking that he’s doing the right thing for Sheila but then hopeless to understand what she really needs, as evidenced by him saying he “needed to better” for her only to have her give him pleasure. It was good to see her lash out, even if he thinks that means she’s overreacting, and I like that Greta is encouraging her to leave him, something that she insists she’ll do even though she can’t do it yet. Going to the motel for one last time had a different ending than in season one, and Breem is already getting his wife angry enough by flirting in another language in their own home, so let’s hope she doesn’t find out what’s going on anytime soon. Bunny is likelier to come for her more directly, and having Tyler film her new vide only to have her very unsanitary houseguests tape over it is only getting her angrier about what could have been. I’m eager to see what she does next.
