Early Review: DIRT – Season 2 “Welcome To Normal”


After a shocking first season, DIRT is coming back on March 2 for Season 2.

If you read our interview with Courteney Cox then you already know a few things about this new season, for example that the storylines are ripped from real headlines and that the new season will have a lighter overall tone.

After watching the first episode, “Welcome To Normal” I can tell you that you do notice a difference in the tone of the show, starting with Lucy Spiller’s first words out of her mouth as she wakes up from her coma: “The cover.”

This new season of Dirt looks like it’s going to be another good one. In the first episode you can already look forward to some new staff, a new guy named Farber Kauffman and a new Kenny (literally) who has a “condition” that Lucy enjoys taking advantage of.

In addition, you can look forward to a Britney and an Anna Nicole Smith type story line in the first episode alone. I can only imagine what the rest of the season has in store for us.


Finally, even after all she went through, Lucy Spiller still goes after the story no matter what it takes, aka popping a few stitches shouldn’t stop you. And that’s why we love her.

As for the fate of Julia Mallory, you’ll have to tune in to find out. I will tell you this, just remember this is the Dirt world…

Overall, “Welcome To Normal” is a great way to start a new season of Dirt. If you aren’t a fan yet, I can only urge you to catch this new season. And the good news is you don’t need to know much about season 1 to understand season 2.

So get ready for a new season of Dirt starting tomorrow, March 2, at 10pm on FX.

Also keep an eye out for our review of the second episode of season 2 of Dirt, “Dirty Slutty Whores,” which will air March 9 on FX.
