HBO® presents the Season Two premiere of Hung®, the hit comedy series from Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin (The Riches), and starring Thomas Jane, Jane Adams and Anne Heche. Set in the (still) recession-plagued suburbs of Detroit, Hung continues to revolve around the unorthodox efforts of divorced teacher/coach Ray Drecker (Jane) to generate extra cash – by selling his "winning tool" to desperate women.]]>
While Ray is entertaining the ladies--including the married neighbor with whom he's having an affair--fellow baseball coach Mike (Clark Gregg) is going through a midlife crisis of his own until he meets Frances (Chicago Hope's Roxanne Hart, very good), a widow who thinks he's also a gigolo, a situation Tanya complicates when she takes advice from veteran pimp Charlie (Lennie James). Says Tanya to Ray after Damon (accidentally) tries his first pot-laced pastry, "I'm good in a crisis." Replies Ray, "You are a crisis."
If Hung remains engaging, the second year doesn't make as much of an impact as the first, though Jane and Heche continue to do fine work (Creskoff and Adams come close to caricature at times). As a whole, the series, which was renewed for a third year, feels like it's in a holding pattern, with the exception of Damon, who becomes less off-putting and more sympathetic as he forms an identity separate from his sister, who resents his success. The most notable guest director is Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right), who helms "Beaverville," in which Jess spots a furry creature--the four-legged kind--in the basement. --Kathleen C.

All 3 seasons were funny to me. Some moments were funnier than others, but nonetheless, they were cool.Published 1 day ago by rican

This series ended too soon. Thomas Jane is quite good. The series was sexy and darkly funny.... also quite frustrating in the story complications. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Donald Cripe
