I do not know if Harriet Tubman ever held two slave traders at bay with a rifle in each hand.

That’s the spirit that infuses WGN America’s Underground, which returns for its second season on Wednesday night and, through its first three episodes, remains one of the hardest shows on TV to properly describe — while also being a show that could surely be adored by a bigger audience (and by more critics) than it currently is.
