Product Description

In Sugar Rush Series 2, star of the show Kim is no longer a fifteen year-old homophobic gay virgin--she's now a horny seventeen year-old who's ready to unleash her libido on Brighton's lesbian scene… that is, when she's not revising for her A Levels, saving Sugar from her probation officer, persuading Matt that playing Marilyn Manson backwards won't make him privy to satanic messages, or discovering the hideous truth behind her parents's apparently saved marriage. The second series also sees the introduction of sex-shop manager Saint, who, along with Sugar, attracts the attention of Kim. In addition to the distractions provided by these two, Kim also has to deal with her dysfunctional family--an obsessive father, an exceedingly unusual brother, and a ridiculously childish mother. With each new episode of the show--which is set in Brighton and based on the book by Julie Burchill--Kim's wry observations and experiences of forbidden love take you on a completely different journey.

By Patrick Neylan VINE VOICE on 14 Jan. 2010
Format: DVD
The first series of Sugar Rush was wonderfully original, and the makers felt they needed to take the show forward second time round. Instead of out-doing it, they have over-done it.

No plot twist is too ludicrous, no coincidence too implausible for Series 2. I won't spoil it by giving examples, but time after time (at least twice in each episode) a character walks in (or out) at PRECISELY the wrong moment. Unfortunately, the unfolding story totally depends on these ridiculously implausible coincidences. The plot has become so utterly contrived that any sense of realism is lost. Upping the sex content is a poor substitute for good writing, although presumably the need to get straight (so to speak) to some girl-on-girl action explains why Kim's coming out to her family was allowed to fall into the gap between Series 1 and 2. And what happened to the humour?

Characters that were charmingly batty have become lurid caricatures of themselves. Sugar, who was obliviously self-centred in Series 1, is by now so consciously devious and manipulative as to be positively evil. Kim's father Nathan was neurotic enough in the first series, but his hand-wringing self-pity is now nauseating. Her mother Stella only avoids the same trap because her character is reduced to little more than shrugging her shoulders and reaching for another glass of wine while her husband prattles on. Olivian Hallinan as Kim is again excellent, but even she struggles to make her character's gullibility convincing.

Over-written and over-acted, Sugar Rush 2 is a perfect example of a series over-reaching itself. What a shame it went so wrong so quickly.

It's eighteen months since the last series and Kim (Olivia Hallinan) is out and proud. Though it is a shame that we don't see the in-between part, I think it fits well with the programme that it skips straight to the action. Not every show with gay characters has to have a big coming-out scene and the way in which Kim is outed is wickedly funny. What makes the show so addictive is that it is outrageously over-the-top whilst still being realistic. It manages to be entertaining and strikes a chord; it's even blackly comic in parts, remembering in Series One where Kim contemplates spiking Sugar's (Lenora Crichlow) drink. I think the only weakness in the show is the character of Matt (Kurtis O'Brien), Kim's little brother. The writers didn't quite know what to do with him and whilst I liked the fact that the programme didn't judge Matt, he just didn't develop in the way that Stella (Sara Stewart) and Nathan (Richard Lumsden) and of course the two leads did.

For me, the main point of this series is to show Kim as independent. In Series One she was obsessed by Sugar but now she has grown up a bit and moved on. It shows how tight their friendship is that the two girls manage to maintain it, even if there is a slight role reversal. The lesbian aspect is more prominent in this series as Kim is out and proud. Some reviewers think that it is too prominent; I think that it works. The idea of Kim falling in love with a sex shop owner, Saint (Sarah-Jane Potts), is true to the tongue-in-cheek attitude of Sugar Rush. The show never hides away from sexuality and I think for teenage viewers that it is a positive message, particularly as it is not simply standard heterosexuality. Basically, anything goes and anything is accepted. I think that's another appeal of the show; it never judges.

Format: DVD
The first series of Sugar Rush was one of the best pieces of original television in recent years. It combined satirical humour, drama and poigniancy into a single lively, trendy programme. Somehow the producers managed to come up with a way to make a second series just as good, without just re-hashing the first.

Kim's new object of desire is Saint, the magnetic Sarah-Jane Potts. What with Sugar's interference, Kim's mistakes and Saint's enigmatic personality, much of the drama is in whether or not they will actually get together. Kim is a more driven character than before, partly through maturity and partly because her sexuality is now out in the open. Sugar, on the other hand, is having a tougher time of things and shows a more vulnerable side on occasion.

The acting, particularly of the three leads, is excellent and causes real empathy with the characters. There are several moments when the viewer may be genuinely moved, and the brilliance of the programme is the humour in and around those same moments. There is perhaps more of both comedy and emotion in this series than the first.

The DVD contains several extras: There are a lot of deleted scenes, some of which fill in background events; an odd, brief behind-the-scenes montage; some good cast interviews (but sadly not all the main characters are included); and commentaries on 3 or 4 episodes. The commentaries have some awful sound quality in places, which is a shame because the content is quite interesting for those fans wanting to know more about how the programme was made.

Whilst this series inevitably loses the freshness and originality of the first, it is by no means a re-hash, nor has it lost the essential ingredients that made the first so watchable.
