Critics 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.

Critic Reviews for Hung Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Nov 20, 2018 | Full Review…

The feeling I get from Hung is that of a lot of talent -- both in front of and behind the camera -- that hasn't been applied toward a coherent goal.

Jun 27, 2010 | Full Review…

For years, HBO has been billing itself as "Not Just TV." Hung can now proudly call itself "Not Just Sex."

Jun 27, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Although at times Hung unravels and feels as lost as Ray Drecker himself, its individual scenes present as darkly funny and disturbing a parable of the disheartening state of American culture as you'll find on the small screen.

We're more or less where we started, with no sense that we're going to go anywhere new and different. But, as mentioned, the performances are still a lot of fun.

After an improbably poignant first season "Hung" has hung a couple of wrong turns.

Thanks to Adams and Kreskoff's delightfully wicked power struggle, "Hung" feels fresher now than it felt last summer and more textured.

Jun 27, 2010 | Full Review…

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***.

Jun 27, 2010 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

Nov 20, 2018 | Full Review…

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

  • Apr 12, 2015
    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!
