Second Chance is one of those TV shows that it undeniably awful, but I still want to watch it (for some odd reason). I think the core story here is really strong, but it is just poorly executed. The writing is terrible. The dialogue? Just, really bad. I’m a big fan of the actors in the show, and that’s basically the only reason I’m staying around.
If we could work with the core idea, of a man brought back to life in a younger, stronger body, to right the wrongs of the past, then we’d have a show. Unfortunately, we’re bogged down in a bunch of side storylines, involving cancer, corruption, and some other nonsense that I have a feeling will continue to weigh down the season. Also, super potent sperm? Come on. Really? Someone in a writers room thought that was funny?
The whole cast deserves better, but they all deserve to be on TV. So, for now, I’ll probably stick with this show, but you shouldn’t.
FINAL GRADE: D+
