Product Description

Amazon.ca

Produced by Alexander Payne (Sideways), who directed the pilot, Hung reinvents the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold archetype for the postfeminist era. High school basketball coach Ray Drecker (a first-rate Thomas Jane) lives in a Detroit devastated by the decline of the auto industry. After an electrical fire destroys his home, he loses custody of his kids to ex-wife Jessica (Anne Heche); joins forces with poet-turned-pimp Tanya (Jane Adams), with whom he once had a fling; and becomes a male escort. Though Drecker's life looks nothing like the one depicted in Boogie Nights, the anatomical anomaly he shares with porn star Dirk Diggler makes him well suited for his new line of work. To ensure that things look legit, Tanya markets Ray as a "happiness consultant." While she attempts to locate clients, he sleeps in a tent until he can inhabit his house again, tries to maintain a relationship with mopey twins Damon (Charlie Saxton) and Darby (Sianoa Smit-McPhee), and wages a stealth war against his image-obsessed neighbor, Howard (Loren Lester). Once Tanya reconnects with Lenore (Rebecca Kreskoff), a forceful fashion consultant, Ray hooks up with a controlling executive (Dirty Sexy Money's Natalie Zea) and a married woman who could use some TLC (Margo Martindale).

As the poignantly funny, if tonally erratic first season unfolds, Tanya meets a new man (Humpday's Joshua Leonard) and tangles with her pompous mother (Rhea Perlman); Jessica finds out her wealthy dermatologist husband, Ronnie (Eddie Jemison), isn't as wealthy as she thought; and Lenore tries to steal Ray away from Tanya. The premise may sound salacious, but Hung concerns itself more with economic imperatives and unconventional friendships than with cheap thrills. Created by Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin, the married team behind The Riches, Hung ends with the intimation of layoffs and affairs, rich dilemmas to fuel the second season. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Not a fan of this show. Seems fairly contrived but that's my personal take.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big smiles, big problems, and a big... Aug. 17 2009
By Caitlin B. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Hung started about the same time as True Blood season two. After the second episode I was hooked! The main character is a high school history teacher and basketball coach whose house burns down, children want to live with his ex-wife and he's broke broke broke. He meets up with a poet who he once (ahem) and together they hatch a harebrained scheme to pimp him and his ... out. Through this he has to deal with women he isn't attracted to but learns to love what's under the skin, crazy women who pay for him but not his "services" and the working in's and out's of women. Meanwhile his pimp, Tanya, is suffering as a failed poet and drowning in her own lack of love in her life. Bumps and bruises along the way but every episode bring laughter and smiles to my face (and my husbands!).
The characters learn and even though they get a lot more bad than good cards, they always grow. I'm very pleased with the direction this new series is going and sit in anticipation every Sunday night when my little red dot that indicates my DVR is recording blinks on. Hung is a lot more than I had anticipated and am tickled with the gem found under dirty gym socks and a slathering of sexual innuendo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hung up on Hung Sept. 19 2009
By pele5474 - Published on Amazon.com

Wasn't sure what to expect from this besides the obvious. It seemed in the beginning that there was a lot to balance between the facade of the student admired, all around good guy of Coach Ray Drecker and his cocky and at times infantile alter ego. Then you have hot mess, wanna be pimp Tonya who seems likes she's one bad hair day away from workplace homicide. But in the end, it all somehow works and entices you to want to watch more. (It doesn't hurt Thomas Jane isn't afraid to show his bum off alot!) It was HBO's most watched freshmen show ever so I hope that means a 2nd season and beyond will be secured because watching these characters come into their own will be entertaining!

Take a ridiculous commodity (big penis), attach it to the most unsuspecting guy Coach Ray Drecker, throw in a dizzied and frantically fanatic poetic wanna-be pimpette named Tanya Skagle and you have the basis for this show called Hung.

Though sounding laughable at first I found this series to be really all about the hard times in America and what lengths people will go to to survive and make it in this economy.

Jessica Haxon is Ray's ex-wife and married to a nervous and timid dermatologist. She's in the money now after giving up the dream she thought her life would be when she first married her high school sweetheart Coach Ray. She has neurotic episodes and is always trying to convince her two children Daman and Darby (whom she had by Coach Ray) to love her as any children would love their mom. But they just don't. The kids are great. The episodes are hysterical and everyone is made fun of and made to laugh at themselves.

Hung is a light and fun comedy for adults that plays around and pokes fun at the prostitution industry. Here we have two characters trying to make a million out of...

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch entertainment! June 27 2010
By Eduardo Abdullah Nagasaki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A promising start... July 3 2010
By Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I'll watch all of Deep Blue Sea just for Thomas Jane in a wetsuit, so it isn't too much of a hardship to watch him in Hung. It's actually nice to see an HBO series tackle the recession even if the protagonist is forced to sell his body to make ends meet. It sounded like an original storyline, it was available OnDemand, and once I got started, it keep me coming back to finish Season One in just a couple of days. I think Thomas Jane does a fantastic job with the role of Ray Drecker. He's likeable and even as he bumbles his way through his first few jobs, still very believable and endearing. Jane Adams as Tanya, Ray's pimp, drives me crazy. She's so sweet and naive, it's kind of excruciating watching her try to be a pimp - I just want to smack her and tell her to grow a backbone, so I'm actually looking forward to Lenore's expanding role and tough love approach. I'm hoping now that the writers have gotten their feet wet, there will be some more consistency and a lot more heat. I mean, come on, the show is on AFTER True Blood. I was expecting a little more erotic content.
