Vinyl Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Vinyl premiered last week with a two hour pilot episode. The premiere episode was liked and supported by many, but interestingly, the second episode has garnered quite a backlash due to the “too blunt and bold” portrayal of the story on the screen. Audience was cool with the first episode, but now that the second episode has aired, many are voicing their opinions to shift its air timings away from prime time. Luckily, for those who loved it, HBO has given a green light for season two of the series. (watch: Work Video – Rihanna and Drake.)
The series is made under the watch of Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese and is about Richie Finestra, a record executive in the seventies. Second episode was titled “Yesterday Once More” and was directed by Allen Coulter. It aired on HBO on the night of twenty one February at nine.

The episode starts off with a scene featuring Ritchie enjoying the screening of “Enter the Dragon” while he is high on drugs. He later breaks Zak’s nose after a not so good board meeting trying to show off his Bruce Lee skills. He is thinking about reorganizing the business after the last deal he tried to crack fell flat on its face. Also, he is threatening to fire all his staff.
All this was a result of Ritchie antics after he went high. Zak was stalling the Germans just to seal the deal which just required Ritchie’s signature, but Ritchie shows up after a night of fun and adventure where he almost got killed. He is blabbering and misbehaving due to which the whole Polygram deal fails.Vinyl Season 1 Episode 2 Review
Later Zak is seen organizing a lavish party at a fancy place which he can no longer afford. Later, he is at his home, trying to get some sleep while dodging questions about his injury that his wife threw at him. He has his nose all bandaged up and lies to his wife, telling her that the injury is due to a car accident. He is later seen sitting in his car that is parked in the garage. He is giving a thought to committing suicide by an overdose of Valium but decides against it. He jumps out his car and smashes the back of his car to create an alibi.
Towards the end of the episode, we see some drastic transitions and Ritchie is finally acting in a sensible fashion. Watch the episode yourself for a better insight.
