Great first season, then Amazon ruined it

Season 1 is very good, for adults. Season two has poor writing, FULL FRONTAL MALE NUDITY - penis and testicles clearly visible, plot holes, and is, overall, terrible.

This title has:

Too much sex

Good, but bloody and scandalous

I went to common sense media to make sure it wasn’t too nasty for my liking, with only 2 stars for sex I thought it was safe to watch. I was very shocked with the amount of sex and FULL FRONTAL MALE NUDITY! The rating should be changed for accuracy. Story line is great but Sex was unnecessary

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This dark and humorous series offers some fun moments as the narrative takes some wild twists and turns. Despite Marius' (aka Pete's) actions, he's a sympathetic figure, and the rest of the cast is imperfect, colorful, and likable. However, some of the characters are more developed than others, which makes the show feel a little uneven at times.

Sneaky Pete lacks some of the edginess one often expects from a streaming-only series. But there's plenty of bad behavior here to make you feel a little guilty for rooting for Marius' (aka Pete's) success with his new family and enough humor to help you feel better about it. If you're looking for something entertaining to watch, this show is worth tuning into.
