With high hopes for a second season of the The Two Coreys it all came to a slow stuttering halt only a few episodes in, and sadly it wasn’t too soon for this viewer as I quickly grew tired as what was once a decades-long brotherhood turned into an ill-fated friendship.

Season one was based around Corey Haim staying with Corey Feldman and his wife while trying to get his career back on track with some ups and downs of what’s usually seen as every day life events. Season two was just about pure hatred and who would come to the realization the fastest that Haim was in need of serious help to kick his ever present drug habits. Denial is an amazing tool – I only wish I suffered from it part way into the season. Instead, I stared at the TV every week like a bad accident, unable look away from the horror. The worst part of this season is the producers indulged in this downward spiral even when it meant harm to some and grief for others.

Is a third season in the works? If it is, I sincerely hope the creators go back to the drawing board and use what worked previously. Yes viewers like to see drama from reality, but I really don’t need to see someone killing themselves in the name of stardom and stupidity.
