Tv Season Info

Season two of this modern fable set in Long Beach, CA centers on likable "Squire" and ex-surfer Sean "Dud" Dudley (Wyatt Russell), whose beloved fraternal order -- the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx -- is suffering under new rule by an ill-suited leader. Despite his "Knight" and mentor Ernie's (Brent Jennings) lost faith, and his twin sister Liz's (Sonya Cassidy) struggle with their past, Dud believes he is the key to restoring the Lodge to its former grandeur and putting the rightful king on the throne. In addition to Russell, Jennings and Cassidy, this season's cast includes Linda Emond (Connie), Eric Allan Kramer (Scott) and David Pasquesi (Blaise).

The show is full of sly signs, portents, and odd, incidental details that end up paying out many episodes later.

A country-hopping, plane-transcending hangout with individuals of boundless depth.

It's in the episode's sense of finality where a wealth of meaning makes this one of the most poignant Lodge 49 episodes yet.

We predict Season 2 will have more viewers than Season 1.

Lodge 49 has big ambitions - it's a series primarily about why American society feels like it's coming apart at the seams, after all - beneath its easygoing sensibility.

For viewers who are tuned to that distinct wavelength, Lodge 49 continues to be a unique gem whose continuation during the age of Peak TV is nothing short of a miracle itself.

Lodge 49 is both whimsical and pragmatic, a cacophonous collection of divergent ideologies that through some bewildering alchemy not only works but thrives.

There is something quiet and nice about a show that is, well, quiet and nice.

What a performance by Jennings! What a vision of the splendor in the regular! And Lodge 49 was beautiful - is, darn it, is beautiful!

Oct 15, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Somehow the actors and writers throw equal parts of mundane reality into a bowl of bizarre and whipped the combination of reality and fantasy into a cream thick enough to hold up. It feels right and not quite right at the same time.

What comes next is a series of strange and fascinating tableaux which, although I'm happy to let this beautiful show just wash over me, I couldn't resist pausing and rewinding in order to make sense of the iconography.

Lodge 49 is a show that's all over the place and yet feels elegantly and confidently arced, rather than haphazard. It's silly and profound, deep and frivolous.

Audience Reviews for Lodge 49: Season 2

    A rather excellent sophomore year for Lodge 49, that augments all of the first season's strengths and then some. While the show's storyline certainly grows more complex this year (although it's certainly more accessible than anything concocted by series-inspiration, Thomas Pynchon), it's almost an afterthought compared to the show's other areas. Lodge 49 has just such an intriguing ratio between the surreal and the everyday, with many of this year's themes continuing to touch on the monotony of work-life, as well as the importance of family. Still, the show's dips into magical realism are majestic to say the least, and outstanding filmmaking highlight its singular tone, from astral-inspired cinematography and what must be the best scene of the year to be shot in slow-mo. Warm, peculiar, original, unpredictable, wry...Lodge 49 has it all! This show immediately came out the gate last year as one of the weirdest shows on air. It now cements itself as one of the best too.

    Great series, enjoyed it immensely! Quite unpredictable and mysteriously magical because of its mystical references. The show keeps a happy vibe throughout. Highly recommended!

    Quirky and strange, completely loveable characters and engrossing story. I've never seen anything like it. Wholly original. Worth every second.

    A show that up until recently I had never heard of but came across its high ratings on RT and decided to give it a go. Am very pleased that I did - a very difficult show to describe but it takes me on a surreal journey in every episode with its quirky characters, excellent acting and dialogue. Sad, funny and stupid at times and definitely won't appeal to everyone. It certainly appeals to my own warped sense of humour !

    One of The Best out there amazing show Wyatt Russel is an amazing actor

    Always a surprise. Likable characters never react in predictable ways. Such fun to watch. Leading man Dub, with his optimistic nature despite always recovering from some surf related accident, is a nice contrast to his downbeat yet adorable sister. If you haven't watched "Lodge 49" give it a chance to live among us who are just trying to get by in life. It's a great ride.

    Season 1 was the best show that year and season 2 is off to a great start!
