In season 2 of Netflix's French political drama, the power structures within the titular city are shifting, but the problems that plagued the first season persist. This show wants to be House of Cards, full of scheming and power-hungry politicos, but the deck is stacked against it. It's definitely better than the first season, but a promotion to "mostly competent but forgettable" isn't exactly a ringing endorsement to make this your next binge watch. Far and away the most entertaining character this season is Jeanne Coste, a charismatic, love-to-hate-her far-right schemer clearly intended as an homage to former French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.
