Notice I said "entertainment" NOT "art." Anyone who expects to find "art" in a cable television series needs to get their head examined. Sure, the title and the storyline hinge upon the longstanding myth/reality (depending on which side of the fence you're on) that the better-endowed the man, the better a lover he is...but this is just an excuse for the movie, the "hook" if you will. There are a lot of other layers to this series as well. As far as mass entertainment goes, there is a refreshingly low percentage of cliches, stereotypes and stock characters...many scenes from "Hung" actually do contain a nice bit of originality and authenticity.
Excellent camera work and film editing, great music (especially the intro song by The Black Keys, "I'll Be Your Man"), excellent cast (including a bevy of some FINE FINE babes in various states of undress, especially Alanna Ubach, Natalie Zea and Rebecca Creskoff), and strong dialogue all make this a pleasure to watch. AND to top off all the eye candy, there's a fair bit of social realism and cultural satire happening too. Jane Adams, Anne Heche, and of course Thomas Janes do most of the heavy lifting, and there is often a strong "indie-film" vibe to many of the scenes. The viewer is not constantly being challenged to suspend disbelief, in other words. The viewer does not feel manipulated or patronized or pandered to, which is exceedingly rare in most TV and cinema offerings these days.
I borrowed this DVD set from a friend and watched the entire thing on two successive evenings. LOL, can you guess that I was hooked? Highly recommended!
