Overview

Following the lives of a group of thirtysomethings isn’t easy, especially when they never sit still. The 17 episodes of Season 2 (1988-9) pick up where everyone left off -- and then some. Hope (Mel Harris) and Michael (Ken Olin) contemplate a second child; Elliot (Timothy Busfield) moves to lure Nancy (Patricia Wettig) back; Gary (Peter Horton) gets serious with a new woman; Melissa (Melanie Mayron) continues to find herself; and Ellyn (Polly Draper) develops an ulcer. But it's all the moments in-between that crank up the drama. And Season 2 introduces the show's first bad guy: David Clennon joins the cast as the diabolical, smug, manipulative and very successful advertising mogul Miles Drentell in a role reminiscent of Gordon Gekko. A commercial success by this time in 1988, the series continued to push the limits of what great TV was supposed to be and all the while maintaining its artistic and political edge.
