Vicious: S2

vicious s2The six-part second season of Vicious continues the sit-com parlor genre with more barbs, more sight gags and older adults saying very inappropriate things. I have a soft spot in my heart for this series. It’s not nearly as good as it should be, but it’s Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi poking fun at a 50 year gay male relationship. Most of the time it feels like a British version of a show on TV Land. But there’s still a few laughs in every episode and the finale this season – Freddie and Stuart’s wedding was touching. This season the boys help Violet deal with her sister, join a gym, take ballroom dancing lessons, watch Violet and Ash start dating again, and have a falling out until they finally tie the knot. Stubborn and irascible, Vicious continues to entertain. 3 out of 5.
