If you were enthralled by the non-stop action, wild adventures and witty banter of the first season of The Legend of Vox Machina, then you are in for a treat with Season 2. With more action, higher stakes, bigger emotional arcs and even funnier punch lines, Vox Machina levels up in its second season.

Vox Machina is based on the popular Dungeon & Dragons-roleplay web series Critical Role, starring some of the video game and anime industries’ most beloved voice actors. In 2015, friends (and beloved voice actors) Laura Bailey, Liam O’Brien, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel, Travis Willingham and Matthew Mercer brought their household Dungeon & Dragons game to the internet. Since the debut of the webseries’ first campaign, in which the friends role-play and wisecrack for hours at a time, Critical Role has blown up into a cultural phenomenon.

The most important thing to note about Vox Machina is that knowing anything about Dungeons & Dragons or even Critical Role itself is not at all required. Whether you are a long-time fan of the campaign or a newbie looking for a new fantasy-adventure show to watch, it is readily accessible to all. And that is exactly where the show’s strengths lie.
