Recovery Road: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
The show is earnest and well intentioned, as it shows us a young woman grappling with denial and working to get her life on track. It's not a cynical venture. But it does make happily-ever-after into a distinct possibility.
If Recovery Road continues to progress on the trajectory it lays out in its first three installments, it may leave both teens and those in recovery feeling that, for once, a TV drama hasn't patronized them.
The premise here is very after-school special. Fortunately... Recovery Road avoids the overwrought trappings by dealing with addiction and recovery in a nuanced and compelling way.
Recovery Road does a good job of capturing the complex web of both emotions and actions that are taken in the journey to sobriety suggested by the show title.
With a complex heroine and snappy dialogue, Recovery Road manages to push past its hokey demeanor to become a solid drama capable of depicting addiction in an innovative manner.
Audience Reviews for Recovery Road: Season 1
Sep 14, 2016why cancel this show? It was great
Sep 04, 2016I love Recovery Road, this show rocks and it's one of the best new shows of all time. The actors and actresses are awesome including Jessica Sula who is amazing and talented pus she is my favorite.
Mar 29, 2016I just finished watching the season one finale and this is definitely one of my favourite shows now. Amazing characters and interesting dialogue. Hoping that this show gets renewed for a second season.
Mar 09, 2016Recovery road offers a real look at teen addiction in the United States. A lot of A.A. lingo and recovery talk is used to inform the audience about the process of recovery. The show serves up a fairly decent version of what addiction recovery can be like in all its idiosyncracies. Relapse. Denial. Living with crazy people. However, by showing the audience what is possible, it also offers a roadmap to living a new life. Most importantly, we hope Recovery Road can make the subject of addiction and addiction recovery more acceptable to teens, families, school teachers, peers... AND help lower the stigma that surrounds addiction. Good stuff!
Feb 14, 2016Saw the first episode. It sucked. Do not recommend
Feb 08, 2016Depressing premise, not sure worth anyone's time, and it is like a soap opera gone wrong.
Jan 28, 2016Wonderful show! Incredibly well done, entertaining while opening up a very relevant and important dialogue around the issue of the disease of addiction.
Jan 28, 2016Thoroughly enjoyed the program. Realistic, well acted, well written and most important- Relevant
Jan 28, 2016It has current relevance and it's important to depict the struggles of recovery for both the addicted and those who enable. The acting was honest and therefore believable. The occasional measure of sarcasm brought a levity into the right scenarios. Gene Ruth
Jan 27, 2016Excellent show, enjoyed it immensely. Well acted, well written and it deals with an important subject in a very realistic manner. The pairing with the Fosters is especially great since it also makes profound statement about issues relevant to young people today
