With a strong returning cast, ‘Search Party’ shifts tone while maintaining laughs in season two

If you’ve been around me in the past year, I’m sure I’ve brought up “Search Party” at some point during our conversations.

Season one was full of mystery and twists with a cast that seemed to be made for one another, and season two is keeping the momentum going.

Amazon’s TV pilots showcase strong female representation

Last Friday, Amazon released three new shows as a part of their biannual pilot season program. The way the pilot season works is they release a bunch of pilot episodes for new shows, after which the viewers are able to rate and review them. The ones with the best ratings get picked up for a series order. This winter, they released three new pilots — “I Love You More,” “Sea Oak” and “The Climb” — showing a push for female representation both on and off the camera.

The show is a parody of the true-crime documentary series genre, following two aspiring filmmakers/high schoolers as they investigate an act of vandalism at their school. As a die-hard fan of anything true-crime, I felt protective of the genre and not ready to watch anything making fun of it. But I bit the bullet and binged the entire series in one sitting. Calling it a parody may not even be correct; instead, it is a love letter to the true-crime genre.
