Critic Consensus: Hung's sophomore season is engaging thanks to winning performances by Thomas Jane and Jane Adams, but the series' narrative limpness continues to hamper its sizable potential.

It is so much more than its gimmicky name suggests, offering plenty of heart, along with worthwhile riffs on the national economy, American resourcefulness and, yes, gender dynamics.
Sure, this second season asks some well-worn philosophical questions about the nature of right and wrong (as did the first season), but as the center of that debate, Ray signifies nothing more compelling than a very big d***.
I can count the number of times this show has made me laugh out loud on one hand or less. Having said that, not all comedies are alike. This show creates a dark comedic vibe that gets you to smirk and smile at certain situations, while cringing at others.
Tom Jane, as expected, is just as good as he was last season in a role that will undoubtedly expand his presence and offer him the rightful opportunities he deserves in TV and film
Hung season two is doing roughly the same things as season one, and about as well -- and that's a big problem... Because so little has changed, I'm having a much harder time enjoying elements that worked for me in the first season.
Audience Reviews for Hung: Season 2
Second 2 brings more competition to the business as Tanya and Lenore battle to secure their share of the pie from Ray's prostitution income. All hell breaks loose. A little bit less exciting than the first season but still enjoyable to watch, the sex were even more outrageous than the past, the jokes wilder!
