What’s missing from Serial’s second season?

I enjoyed this article — it highlights the key reasons why season 2 is not working for me, especially the line:

“ There is no tension at the center of this story, which leaves the details informing nothing, building towards no larger understanding.”

In series 1 the tiny, sometimes seemingly insignificant details were fascinating and allowed for speculation and discussion. In series 2, the details about Bowe’s personality and background feel superfluous and detract from the central point, why did he leave his post?

Should I persist: Y/N/M??

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
