Sneaky Pete released Season 2 on Amazon almost three weeks ago…which is an eon ago in terms of “binge watch television”. But getting released in the same weekend as Jessica Jones and Love didn’t do it any favors.
But despite dropping to Number 3 on my watch list for the weekend, this season kept up with the big guns.
Last season we had a lot of Marius (Giovanni Ribisi) pretending to be Pete and living with his family, but by the end of the season he was mixed up in all of their messes, from bail bonds to cops getting killed.
But people still want to get ahold of Marius and have him return monies owed, and Season 2 picks up right there, as everyone has a little secret, and no one knows the next persons, so it’s only a matter of time before it all comes out…especially when it involves that aforementioned dead cop.
Also, the real Pete is getting out of prison, and it’s bound to be chaos if he goes back home…especially as his real mother comes out of the woodwork.
Now Marius has to do one big con to help free his new found family from his previous mistakes.
This “Ocean’s Eleven” style show, stretched over a full season, was one of the slowest binges I’ve done in years. But I wasn’t bored with it, but at the same time, I wasn’t enamored. It’s enjoyable, but not necessarily memorable. This season gets another 7 out of 10.
