Critic Reviews for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

I knew this show was a bungle in the jungle when it arrived last summer and figured it would be canceled because it's better to burn out, than fade away.

I was a big fan of Denis Leary's narcissistic characters in The Job and Rescue Me, but his fallen star in Sex&Drugs, which he co-created, seems like one ego trip too many.

No preamble. Denis Leary's Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is the best current TV show about a fictional rock band.

Leary understands that if it ain't broke, you don't fix it. He gets in a good groove when playing the same idiotic everyman placed in a slightly different context on each subsequent show. What does change over time is his focus on a particular motif.

On a certain level it feels like Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is still figuring out what kind of show it wants to be, but the serialization this time around has found an interesting thematic foundation to anchor each week's storyline.

It feels compelled to explain its own jokes, inaccurately thinking it's too hip for its audience.

It's a nice, continuing development for a series that could be the last rock 'n' roll show standing.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll... returns for a second season that's nearly as scattershot as its first.

Audience Reviews for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 2

Making all the wrong moves, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll crashes and burns in its second season. Instead of continuing to follow Gigi and her band struggle to make it in the New York music scene, the show completely changes its focus to Johnny Rock's girlfriend Ava and her launching of a solo project. And in another inexplicable change, Gigi randomly seeks out a lesbian romance while still dating her lead guitarist. The writing is awful and is completely devoid of the wit and clever satire that made the first season so fresh. Worse yet, the characters all come off as insufferable assholes. There's a bit of a recovery in the last third of the season (with a stronger focus on Johnny and Gigi's relationship), but it's not enough to save the season. Much like a real rock band, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll self-destructs, ensuring that its second season is its last.
