Recovery Road: Season 1 Reviews

January 26, 2016
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.

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.

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.

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.

Teen-alcoholic redemption tales were 1970s afterschool special staples, but this wise, realistic drama is too smart to try to wrap up its main character's issues in a two-hour-with-commercials movie.
