The second season has also expanded the world of the show by exploring its supporting cast, with standout episodes delving deeper into Rita (Sarah Podemski)’s rare time alone as a single mother and Big (Zahn McClarnon)’s lingering guilt over not being able to avoid from a previous tragedy on the reservation.
“Reservation Dogs is not only a much-needed correction of decades of Native American representation (or removal) on American television, but it also accomplishes another feat: churning comic gold from a grounded, if stylized, vision of reservation life,” writes The AV club‘s Manuel Betancourt in our season two review.
