I'm sorry if there's a lot of grammatical mistake, English is not my first language.

After binge watch this drama from the first season, I feel like the season 2 is a disappointment compared to season 1. There is a few major change in this season, most notably the series become a "buddy cop" type of drama instead of a squadron (if you watch this season you will know why).

Although the second season have a more interesting episodic story and character, but the main plot is not as interesting as the first season. the first one is kinda make you want to dig more about Shimazaki's (KimuTaku) and Commander Murata's (Takaya Kamikawa) past, but the second season doesn't have one. To describe it, it's the usual "David vs Goliath" story.

The acting is as good as the first season. but the love-hate relationship between the main 2 character is a bit off for a buddy cop drama, probably due to it having seven episode.

Speaking of why is it only have 7 episode, i think the pandemic could be the main cause and it's acceptable. you can see some re-shoot and there's a bit of plot hole in the series. the show feel rushed after the 4th episode, i think they're once planning a 9-11 episode.

Not the best show to watch if you're not the main lead fan or a fan from season 1. I hope that they can do better in the third season.

As I stated from my first review about the first season of BG: Personal Bodyguard I was a bit nervous how this would hold up to it's predecessor. In my opinion it shocked me that it held up well. A lot of sequels and prequels aren't capable of doing this but this one did.

A lot of the first original cast was in this minus the captain which made me glad about because I did enjoy the cast.

Every plot in this series was different from the first season which I was glad about.

The episodes were fast paced. There was never a slow episode. I think I was able to finish all of these in one day. It wasn't too much and it wasn't too little. It was just right for me. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that there may not be a 3rd installment of this.
