A Much Better Season
I kind of watched the 1st season out of boredom. It had some interesting characters and plot lines, but it felt somewhat disjointed. It was OK, but nothing special.
This season surprised me. First we meet a whole host of new characters and completely new plot. Instead of the season taking place in the 12hrs of the Purge, this one starts towards the end of the yearly Purge and continues for months after. It's a stand alone plot so no need to have watched season 1 to follow and enjoy it. Through what we see characters experience we get to better understand the totalitarian America under NFFA rule. It makes the whole Purge universe more interesting. I wouldn't give it full 5 stars, for now it's solid 4, although this might change as the series finishes.

I have watched the whole of season two, and not just one episode!
Just so you know, most reviews here are based on the first episode of this show. Sadly, the season turns into a plodding political crime drama, with very little purge, as the story is structured around the rest of the year - who cares. The characters are weak, uninteresting, but good-looking, that's the main thing, right, and of the three story lines, one about a black guy who's white neighbours want to purge him, one about a white guy who turns into a serial killer off purge because of what happened on purge, and one about a Mexican lady who defects from working for the new founding fathers, teaming up with a defected cop turned bank-robber instead, in order to expose the evil of the NFFA. If you don't like being force fed politically correct liberal politics, avoid. If you like the Purge series, avoid. If you like good acting, and writing, avoid. If you are looking to waste your time, knock yourself out mate!

Well thought out change of focus
Great idea, and a brilliant idea to keep the franchise fresh - the concept of following survivors between the purges. Episode 1 was excellent, looking forward to no. 2.

Reactions of "normal" people during the rest of the year
I like this because it focuses on normal life, overshadowed by Purge Night. People lose loved ones, breadwinners are gone, leaving families in poverty, bosses disappear, making stores shut, affecting hundreds of jobs. Any grudges surface on the night, so be extra nice to people all year, as you never know what wacko will take offence and take his revenge.
Some people cannot "switch off" what they've done, making them more likely to purge the next year. No-one talks about killing, anymore, just purging, as if that makes it any better.
Do what you want, just don't get caught after the siren goes, as they are always watching. Any crime, no matter if it is minor, is punishable by death on the next Purge Night.
Worth a watch.

A big improvement over Season One
Like many I found Season One to be mediocre, both character and story-wise, but kept watching hoping it would pick up. Season Two by contrast is a big improvement. Exploring life in the dystopian world of the New Founding Fathers over a year between Purges is a good move, allowing space for fresher plot-lines, and some really clever satire. Each pre-title sequence, for instance, is its own little gem of world-building. Add some sympathetic characters with believable motivations, better pacing, and some decent twists, and I was glad I gave it a second chance.

Incredible
I don't watch a lot of television, but this is certainly one of the best shows that I have watched...for a long time! Highly recommend.
