Euphoria season two review: Zendaya’s star vehicle justifies all its provocations – and penises
The Independent says Ninety seconds. That’s how long it takes to see the first penis of Euphoria’s second season. The first emotional gut punch comes moments later. Fans of Sam Levinson’s gritty teen drama have been waiting nearly three years for round two but we still remember the routine: shock, heartache, shock, heartache. Rinse and repeat.
The pattern is just one of the many characteristics that first distinguished Euphoria from its coming-of-age contemporaries on TV in 2019. The show’s highly stylised art direction, graphic sex scenes, full-frontal nudity, and hefty subject matter are some of the others. Now, after two comparatively quiet bridge episodes last summer, Euphoria is back to regularly scheduled programming. Levinson once again places his cohort of badly behaved high schoolers onto an emotional minefield. Inevitably, the teens step on each one, releasing psychological shrapnel and a good deal of glitter as they go.
