"So far, the second season has kept pretty much everything from that first round intact," says Steve Greene. "Between the crowning added touches and a vastly different cultural landscape than the one that the show first premiered in, this new batch of episodes has underlined all the reasons why Holey Moley is a perfectly pitched TV tonic. And it’s here at just the right time. Most of that ease of watching comes from the fact that, aside from the quarter-million dollar prize awaiting one mini-golf champion at the end of the season, these people are essentially competing for who can have the most fun goofing off for a national TV audience. There’s no manufactured animosity and no confessional booth promises to backstab their competitors. So far in Season 2, it’s almost more jarring to see when the two players putting against each other aren’t actively invested in the other’s success. It’s so refreshing!"
