The Hazans are back! Season 2 of Family Business is available today on Netflix and we tell you what we thought.
She did not look like much, but when it was released in 2019, the French series Family Business starring Jonathan Cohen and Gérard Darmon surprised everyone, fitting in as a wacky, original and refreshing comedy. It must be said that the Hazan family made us laugh with their desire to transform their butcher’s shop into a woodcutter’s shop after learning, “from a reliable source”, that cannabis will soon be legalized in France. Nothing went as planned of course and at the end of the season Joseph, aka Jonathan Cohen, and his family got together. found trapped by awkward drug lord, heralding a most thrilling sequel. But what is it really?
We got to watch Family Business Season 2 preview and honestly, we can’t recommend the binge-watcher enough without further ado. The return of the Hazan family is most chaotic! While their cannabis trafficking seems to be paying them off, a THC problem kicks things up, not to mention Joseph who sets up a super flawed plan to get his family out of this illegal situation. And like in the first season, Joseph’s plan doesn’t go as planned. We don’t tell you more so as not to spoil anything, but what we can guarantee you in any case is that you will not get bored.
This second season is still so crazy, the dialogues are even more chiseled, the scenario is well paced, alternating brilliantly incredible situations, situational comics, more dramatic moments and misunderstandings. As for the actors, they are still just as good and their characters still just as off the mark. We are not going to lie to each other, we should not expect the big series, but at the same time, it is not his bias. Family Business is second-degree, caricature, it doesn’t take itself seriously at all. It’s done to make us have a good time and make us laugh and on this point, this season 2 did not disappoint us.
