I’m six episodes in, very interesting season, especially with Monica and her squad navigating their newfound fame while preparing for competition.
From what they’ve shown, I much prefer Monica’s coaching style and approaches to Vontae’s. He seems to do a LOT of screaming and cursing at his squad. And what’s with his squad’s version of Navarro’s “We Can — We Will — We Must!” chant that ends with them chanting “fuck ‘em!” to judges?! Nice sportsmanship!
There was a little moment early on that illustrated the difference between Monica and Vontae: Monica and her assistant coach Andy (who’s so cute, like a low-key, less-thirsty Steve Grand!) were talking and he asked someone nearby to get his red pen. “Please!” Monica said, and then Andy said to the person “Please, sorry!” So you’ve got Monica reminding of the importance of please and thank-you, while Vontae is cursing at his team and gloating over a basketball game victory.
Jeron on Vontae’s team is very likable and appealing, but that girl (Jada) is foul-mouthed and obnoxious. WAAAY too much makeup, too, even by Texas cheerleading standards!
The sad and shocking Jerry situation was covered well. Without divulging too much, some of the folks they interviewed were interesting.
Agreed with the posters above that Maddy Brum is an interesting subject.

The twins seemed utterly creepy. Their entire affect was bizarre. The fact that they are on a reality show talking about their run-in with a pathetic loser is very strange. The mother seems like a Basic Karen, using this pathetic incident to get them all famous and amass victim points is odd -- she's all over twitter now picking fights with Gabi. Also, they never let Jerry actually speak, and instead we are treated to a montage of his most flamboyant and stereotypically gay moments, as the twins mechanically repeat their traumatic experience. That seemed homophobic to me. That said, if Jerry wasn't stopped he would eventually become some kind of coach and continued his creep.

Agree with everything you said R16. I actually felt like Gabi’s reaction was very genuine - it was assumed by all these hysterics that everyone should cut Jerry off immediately and I liked that she said he’s her family and it’s not that simple.
I couldn’t stand that victims rights attorney (who let Larry Nasser finger her anus until she was 25 and in law school) who went off on what Monica should have said. Like Monica owes everyone some statement immediately.
Too bad Jerry immediately cooperated and confessed everything to the FBI. I wonder if he had a lawyer - I bet he waived it.
The whole episode just left me feeling strange - maybe because of the clips they showed like you said and the twins who were bizarre.

I thought the mother of the twins was fine, but the victim's rights attorney was a bitch. Jerry wasn't trying to tip off anyone to his little hobby and it's not like it was taking place at Navarro. The grandstanding about it by the attorney was obnoxious--particularly as Jerry Harris has been in jail for more than a year awaiting trial.
I'm halfway through, hope things lighten up a bit, so far it's been pretty grim compared to Season 1, but that's not surprising given COVID and the arrest.

Dee, the homophobic little black dude on Trinity Valley's team, was really hot. Even though he was a midget, he had nice proportions and a great body. Trinity Valley looks like a complete shithole - I thought Navarro looked dull in Season 1 but my god!
Same, R30. Even though La'Darius is hot, I've kind of had enough of him. He's obviously mentally unstable, one minute calling Monica an abuser to hundreds of thousands of people online and then saying to her in private that he didn't mean it. That just isn't good enough. I'd have preferred to see more of James, a tall, sensible guy at Navarro (see R24).

La'Darius is still making various accusations online. He's got some serious, serious issues. My armchair psychologist take is that he's projecting some of his massive maternal abandonment issues on Monica when she left to do Dancing with the Stars and then had a very young assistant coach come in of whom he was clearly jealous and saw as kind of a favored child. It all seems to have spiraled out from there.
It's been a depressing season to watch (I have two episodes left), but kind of shows the limits of what even a happy ending can do. Success doesn't heal a traumatic childhood. I hope La'Darius gets help.

The filmmakers tried, but the TVCC team just aren't as interesting to follow as the Novarro cheerleaders. Monica's a more interesting character than the two men running TVCC, though Vonte's fun to look at.
Honestly, I want to see a third season with Maddie that's less grim than this season. Wouldn't mind an episode that followed around some of the "graduates" a bit more--see Gaby Butler cheering at that college I've never heard of. I could probably do without Jerry Harris' trial, though.

R40, I got the same impression as you did. The pants were too tight and too stuffed in the crotch.
Jerry’s behavior is reprehensible. He clearly needs time in prison to reflect and rehabilitate. The fact his activity is not confined to the twins and is focused on children as young as ten is the mark of mental issues. That said, the Jerry situation is nothing like Larry Nasser.
Cheerleading is a sexualized environment overall. My BFF was sucking off his 25 yo cheer coach at 14 years of age in the late 80s, enjoyed it then and doesn’t regret it now. Adult content is readily available to people at all ages on their phones. I found the pearl clutching tiresome.
I believe the twins were telling the truth. I do wonder how traumatized they actually are, why the kid felt the need to flirt in the first place, give up a butt pic, meet Jerry in a bathroom ALONE, what else mom might have found on his phone and how successful a cash payment would have been to have Karen go away if the gym had taken swifter action in the first place.
I feel like women are reacting to this story through the lens of their past victim hood. They clearly don’t understand how being a young male and gay, in particular, is different.
I find it funny these parents are all fired up to protect children, but they dress them as adults in skimpy and tight clothing, allow them to execute slutty choreo, fail to monitor their phones, and give the kids ample room to be preyed upon.
Terrible look for the governing bodies, though. They have to investigate these matters promptly. I do agree that care should be taken to separate the adults from the children on teams. It might help to mitigate the environment I describe above. Young horny hardbodies in the presence of hot hardbodies 4-5 years their senior in cavernous gyms and away on competition trips makes inappropriate behavior too likely.
Pivoting to TVCC coach Khris Franklin…I found his living situation odd. Maybe everything’s as it was depicted, but I wonder if he’s the child’s bio dad or if he is in a relationship with his BFF and his wife.

I thought the second season was even better than the first. It was like the second act of Into the Woods where they had to pay for the highs achieved in the first act. The opening scene of Monica sitting at her desk looking utterly dejected was a great way to introduce the season.

I thought the stuff with Jerry was handled well. It wasn’t minimized and his teammates and coaches seemed aware of how fucked up it was, but they acknowledged their mixed feelings in mature and thoughtful ways. The only thing I didn’t like was when Monica revealed that he thought he could be a motivational speaker. I thought that was kicking someone when they were down. But I have a problem with making excuses for poor behavior, so I’m probably too sympathetic regarding Jerry. I also thought it was especially disappointing because he looked like he had lost weight it seemed like he might have really been able to leverage his popularity and create a real career.
The lawyer was a bitch.
I didn’t completely follow the storyline about Monica going off to be on Dancing With the Stars. Was than while cheerleading was shit down for COVID, or did she desert those kids in the middle of a season? If she did, that’s pretty fucked up. It’s not like those kids were recruited to Harvard and will have three other years of competition and Ivy League degrees to fall back on. Community college is only two years and those kids are there ONLY to train with Monica.

I know Varsity doesn't allow other professional crews to film, but people in the stands film the entire thing. I have to go on Youtube to find it.
I realize the producers would say it isn't about the routine it's about all this other stuff, but for god's sake could we see what they actually worked so hard on without the frenetic half-second shots?

This certainly felt true for Monica.
S1 Monica was tough, unapologetic, commanded respect and was, for the most part (and until the series debuted), revered.
S2 Monica seemed sad, fragile and nervous... like she was second-guessing every thing she did and word she said in front of the camera, for fear of being attacked and vilified. And, after the simultaneous love/hate she got from the world after S1, this isn't really surprising. The fame tsunami completely swallowed her and spat her out. I felt bad for her.
The entire second season of the show felt like Navarro getting its teeth kicked in, one thing after the next, with Monica treading water throughout.
As for TVCC, I think the problem there -- in terms of the show and creating compelling drama -- was a lack of likeable characters for the audience to root for, and what seemed to be a largely joyless team. The coaches and Jeron were great, but Dee? Jada? The weird blonde guy with the bad speeches? I didn't like any of them.
Also, as an aside, I think Navarro's James and TVCC's Jeron would make an ADORABLE couple.

They stretched this season out. The last four episodes were weak. They needed a better editor. Too much repetition, too little content. Yet, I hate how they edit the competition performances to death. They're only four or so minutes. Let us just watch them in full without the smoke and mirrors.
I think it's kind of funny how bargain basement Trinity comes across next to Navarro. I chuckled when they won. There wasn't much of a narrative buildup to it, or at least I wasn't vibing whatever they were doing. I don't think they got into the personal stories much after they got passed covid and the Jerry drama, much to the detriment of the doco. I didn't feel attached to any of the new people. And Jada was so ratchet.
One of the main dramas of the season was whether or not a straight dude would smile, which he likened to acting gay. AND HE NEVER ENDED UP SMILING and his team won anyway. lmao. I wonder if the Trinity win was manipulated as a set-up for Season 3 (Navarro redemption).
And, poor Gillian. Is she gonna be okay? You'd think she killed someone and will never forgive herself.

I agree with everything everyone said here. It's the small things that I noticed that were validated, like the package on the guy who needed to go a size up. It was clear his cock was bulging.
Monica seemed defeated and the unity of Navarro seemed shaky. It really is amazing how quickly fame comes and goes and what effect if has. It was interesting to watch Monica tread water. I think she wanted it all - she wanted to advance her own career, she wanted the kids to make the most of the moment, but it's easy to get sucked in.
I thought the episode with the twins was effective but off. It was interesting because they or the mom would say something traumatic and then they would gut to the boys in almost sexualized still photos or videos. I thought I the twin on the left who did the most talking said something like, "I wanted to be the star of Cheer by telling the truth". Who knows - bottom line they were 13 and Jerry should not have gone there. And the lawyer - what educated woman of 25 would let their MD finger their asshole and vadge, trauma or not?

Just saw the part where Monica swaps out that little Boston girl for the other random girl because the stunt wasn't working and the Boston girl starts hysterical sobbing like a maniac. That did seem like something they should have warned her about instead of embarrassing her on camera to get a reaction. They are just kids.
I like Boston girl because she had no tolerance for her loser dad in a jail and she dropped as a casual aside that her mother was arrested in the school parking lot for stealing license plates. She has a good backstory.
The Jada backstory seemed nonexistent (her parent almost got divorced and she had a tumbling "block") but they really tried to play it up to make her more compelling. The Boston girl felt like she had more like a season 1 type situation where you understood why this ridiculous cheerleading shit was so important to her.

You do what’s best for the team. I couldn’t care less about your feelings.

Jada sometimes reminded me of the head cheerleader head mean girl. She had a potty mouth and could be obnoxious but she is also really good looking with a great body. So she can say shit like, you guys better win this! To the basketball team and they don’t tell her to fuck off. At times I kind of liked her genuinely even tho I doubt I would in real life.
