Hung: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review

Hung: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review

Synopsis: At first glance, Ray Drecker seems like an ordinary divorced dad who’s facing tough times and trying to make ends meet. But Ray’s got one extraordinary, God-given gift – call it his “winning tool” – that sets him apart from other underpaid high-school teachers. With a little help from an unlikely business ally named Tanya, Ray is about to hatch an inspired plan to ride his winning tool all the way to a moreproductive, debt-free life.

Review: HBO often has great programming, but HUNG is the best show I've seen in years.  Its literally hilarious and dramatic all at once.  If you enjoy WEEDS, HUNG is kinda like its male counterpart.  I mean that in the most flattering of ways.

Ray, played by Punisher star Thomas Jane, is a screw-up.  He's a divorced gym teacher and father who can't afford his life and lives in a busted old house by the lake.  He has failure after failure in his life, until he goes to these motivational seminars about finding your 'winning tool'.  He quickly decides that his winning tool is...well...his tool.  He subsequently decides to become a male escort and bumbles his way into the world with the help of Tanya as a shy, but odd pimp.  

The show is hands-down original and hilarious.  It only has 12 episodes, but each is more enjoyable than the last.  I can't wait for season 2.  This one is best seen in blu-ray, as is everything these days!  I highly recommend.

Interest Range: TV Shows, Drama, Sensual, Dark Comedy
