Product Description

Dr. Craig “Huff” Huffstodt is a family man and a successful psychiatrist who gets a wake-up call when one of his patients commits suicide during a therapy session. Huff's whole existence - as doctor, husband, father, son, brother and friend - goes through a dramatic reawakening as he begins to question who he is, what he's made of and how he fits in -anywhere. Winner of 2 Emmy® Awards and featuring an impressive cast including HANK AZARIA, PAGET BREWSTER, BLYTHE DANNER and OLIVER PLATT, HUFF is “funny, emotionally complex and surprising (Newsweek)” …and that’s just what the doctor ordered!

Amazon.com

Dr. Craig Huffstodt (Hank Azaria, Shattered Glass) has it all--beautiful wife Beth (Paget Brewster, Andy Richter Controls the Universe), cute son Byrd (Anton Yelchin), sleek golden retriever, silver BMW, and tastefully-appointed model home. In the pilot, an inconsolable teenager pulls a gun out of his bag and shoots himself--right in the middle of a therapy session. Suddenly, Huff starts to question everything: the job, the marriage, life. Created by Bob Lowry (Any Day Now) and produced by Scott Winant (thirtysomething) for Showtime, Huff combines drama, comedy, flashbacks, and dream sequences to examine one "rich, guilt-ridden white man's" struggle with the Abyss. Sometimes it's Frasier, sometimes The Sopranos--sometimes American Beauty.

Appearances to the contrary, Huff's well-constructed façade is not without its fissures, and as Byrd ominously quotes in episode eight ("Cold Day in Shanghai"), "If you gaze for long into the Abyss, the Abyss also gazes into you--Nietzsche." Live-in mother Izzy (Emmy winner Blythe Danner) is a judgmental busybody, younger brother Teddy (Andy Comeau, Providence) is a sympathetic schizophrenic, and best buddy Russell (Oliver Platt having the time of his life) is a pill-popping, cocaine-snorting, booze-guzzling lawyer whose moral compass has been missing "ever since my daddy's sperm hit the egg." Then there's psychotic patient Melody (Lara Flynn Boyle, The Practice), smart-talking office manager Paula (Kimberly Russell), and homeless Hungarian musician István (Jack Laufer) who keeps crossing his path. (Does he really even exist?) Other recurring characters include Huff's estranged father, Ben (Robert Forster), and Beth's terminally ill mother, Madeline (Swoosie Kurtz). In its first year, Huff garnered seven Emmy nominations and was renewed for a second season. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This and Weeds are the most entertaining shows on television. Hank Azaria is just incredible and the only person who could play Huff. Oliver Platt is an absolute comic genius and I am madly in love with him. He is in a class by himself and deserves his own 5 stars. The way the whole family interacts is so fascinating and complicated and keeps me wanting more. I have watched the whole first season again just because I can't get enough!!! Bring on season 2.

Whenever people talk about the great shows pay cable has to offer, they always talk about HBO. Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, Deadwood... Showtime never gets a mention, despite such great and innovative programs such as Dead Like Me, Jeremiah and now: Huff.

With Huff, like all their shows, Showtime manages to make a show with conflicted, real characters without resorting to graphic sex or violence. The language is still as harsh as ever, but it's nothing you probably wouldn't hear in the course of a day if you were in these situations.

Even if HBO gets all the press for their sex and violence, Showtime has another winner with Huff. Great stories, wonderfully real characters who - gasp! - make mistakes, amazing acting... Craig Huffstodt and Hank Azaria are two different people who happen to look and sound a lot alike, I must say. Paget Brewster is completely believable as the harried housewife and who would have thought Blythe Danner could be unlikeable?!

Give this show a chance. The storylines don't resolve at the end of one episode, the characters strike realistically and behave much as you'd expect while you're hoping and praying they won't be that self-destructive.

And hey, Bob Saget plays a drug-addicted former sitcom star in one episode. It's almost worth the price of the set alone. ;-D

I love Sopranos, Six Feet, etc., but I consider "Huff" the best show on television. Hank Azaria is great as usual, but the performances given by Blythe Danner and Oliver Platt are superlative, both deserving of "Best Supporting" Emmys.

With the price set at $25 (with a $25 rebate if you subscribe to Shotime), the DVD set is a great way to get acquainted with "Huff."

The First season of Huff is an addicting & well done show. It is up to par with other great cable TV shows like Six Feet Under, Nip/Tuck, & Weeds. It features a superb cast including, Hank Azaria, Paget Brewster, Blythe Danner, and Oliver Platt. The show has great mix of dark comedy and serious drama centering around Craig Huffstodt's (Hank Azaria)

life as a psychologist and his family & friends. There were a few weak storyline moments in the beginning of the season but the actors made it work and the season keeps getting stronger right up to the shocking finale! There are also fantastic guest appearances by Lara Flynn Boyle and Swoosie Kurtz.

I'm about 2 episodes away from finishing my dvd set. It's been fun. I'd heard so many good things about it, and I know it's been an Emmy nominee for various reasons so I went ahead and ordered it since in Australia we don't get it (only got it in the last week around midnight showing).

Hank Azaria is great as I thought he might be as the lead as a psychiatrist Dr. Craig 'Huff' Huffstodt. That's basically what the show centers around - his work life (where he is dealing with a patients suicide), his family life (great wife, interfering mother, turbulent teen son) and his own feelings about all of the above.

This is a funny show, serious and moving. I really recommend it if you are a fan of a darker comedy with great story lines. To be honest, I cannot stand his friend who is played by Oliver Platt. He is the only negative for me. He is arrogant and cocky, but the other characters are fantastic (especially Blythe Danner - Huff's mother).

Bereft of any promotion, Huff crept unnoticed into the UK, via a new and little known satellite channel called FX. I took a gamble and was spellbound from Episode 1. Emotionally it's an extreme experience. I can't think of a series so capable of generating side-splitting laughter one minute and under-the-cushion tension the next - not forgetting all-too-frequent bouts of genuine tears. To achieve this in a cynical, stiff-upper-lip English household is no small achievement. Typically, from this UK perspective - much U.S. material is either heavy-handed with sentiment or transparently hesitant when it comes to controversial issues. Huff is not. Beautiful writing, incredible characterisation, tremendous acting, Huff is a work of genius on the part of everyone involved. I shall be buying the DVD set of Series One for my friends and I can't wait for a Series II. I just wish Russell was for real and my best friend. But then - fortunately - I have a son more than a little like Bird....

Huff is another shining example of why cable television is better than regular. The first day we meet psychiatrist Craig Hufstodt, known as Huff to his friends, a teenage patient shoots himself in Huff's office. Stricken and guilt-ridden Huff turns to his family's support to get him through this troubled time. Huff's family is composed of his wife Beth, a party planner who seems more concerned with her career than her family, his mother Izzy (played by the always excellent Blythe Danner) who lives with him and his wife and whose antagonistic relationship with Beth is reason enough to watch the show, and his son Byrd, who Huff accurately describes as "14 going on 40." Rounding out his support system are his best friend and lawyer Russell (played by Oliver Platt in an increasingly over the top and hysterical fashion) who is a misogynist with a drug, booze and debauchery problem, and his brother Teddy, a schizophrenic mental patient who Huff often visits.

This show is full of twists and turns and you never quite know what's going to happen next. It leaves you wondering what the significance is of the homeless Hungarian man who seems to appear as if from nowhere and wondering if Huff will ever get his life sorted out. Platt and Danner shine in their supporting roles and I've never seen finer work from Hank Azaria than in his role as Huff. Others to look out for: Lara Flynn Boyle as a manic depressive patient who goes over the edge and Swoosie Kurtz as Beth's mother. I find the show enthralling and engaging and would definitely recommend it to the same crowd who goes for Nip/Tuck and Melrose Place.
