Meanwhile, Arabella’s agents find another writer to try and encourage her to finish her book, and Kwame (Paapa Essiedu) deals with love entanglements with his new boyfriend.

It’s a trippy show and often toes the line between the sensuous and horrific. If you want a palate cleanser (pun intended) after watching the first season, we recommend this gag reel:
