HUNG

Recommended Posts

When I heard Tom was going to do the View, I was having a hard time imagining how that was going to work out. I had a really good laugh watching it and I think both Tom and Jane did a fantastic job presenting themselves and the show.

"I'm pissing in my lake!" :lol:

 

Can't wait for next week. This keeps getting better with every episode. I love the fighting between Ray and the neighbor. Great job Tom!

For anyone who didn't see it, here is the The View show:

It actually was fun to watch...

 

"I had to go into the next room to take my clothes off, so I wouldn't hit anybody." Haha, good one Tom. But you didn't take that from the thread here, did you? ^^

 

"I hand my wife the script, hey this thing is called Hung, they want me to play the title character-"

"That's great, more Science Fiction."

 

:lol:

...and from the official The View site:

 

they have some video clips of Tom and Jane Adams being interviewed:

Looked at the "pre-show" video as well.

 

Tom's best line, "you mean like the view?" That was funny :)

Third episode was great! This show just gets better and better. There were way more drama in this episode than any other so far as well. Some scenes were very uncomfortable to watch! I felt so sorry for Tanya!

 

Looking forward to the 4th ep!

I thought the argument in the street was pretty damn funny, but the continued rivalry and tension with the neighbor is just going to get better and better.

I loved the drama of this week's episode. This show really gets better and better.

 

Love the bit with the cookie message that Ray didn't get to read: The truth is, you're sexy!

Ratings were down a bit this week, but still good. 2.77M. Slightly off from last week(-23%), but still higher than the premiere. As long as it continues to hold at this level, the show should be good for a renewal for next season.

Hope it keeps going like this.

Maybe there was just not enough sex in the last episode.... ;)

Maybe not. Although I did finally get to watch it, and it was good, but I got a little annoyed with Tanya. She was too wimpy at first, but she did step up at the end and call Lenore out for what she did. And Lenore-what a witch! Did anyone notice that when she was on the phone with Tanya at the end and she was putting on her dress, that it still had the anti-theft device on it, and she actually had one of those things to take it off with?! :lol: OMG! The woman is like a career shoplifter and professional thief!

 

I loved the end though when Ray was leaving the hardware store and Tanya's message was playing as he came across the ad for their business. Nice way to end.

 

And his battle with Koontz is getting hilarious! :) I'm pissing in my lake! TOO funny! I don't know if someone on here said it, or if it was at IMDb, but I bet Ray ends up sleeping with Koontz' wife before the season's over. After she found the note in the cookie (that Tanya obviously meant for Ray), I bet she jumps him!

 

I think Tanya's got a thing for Ray too. And I bet they start to get serious about each other soon.

Blogger review of Hung:

"Hung is funny, yes, but in a sweet and caring way. It's satirical but good-hearted..."

 

http://eriklerouge.blogspot.com/2009/07/hbo.html

 

and

 

 

ABC News article about Hung:

 

"But what "Hung" has right, according to former and current sex workers, is the more-common-than-talked-about trend of good looking guys exploring side gigs as escorts during tough economic times America's currently enduring."

 

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/Televi...4173&page=1

 

and

 

 

Another News article about Hung and other shows:

 

"As the recession drags well into its second year, the battered economy is being reflected in all aspects of popular culture, including television shows about tough times..."

and

 

 

 

Review of "Great Sausage" episode of Hung:

 

"...interested to see where things go, because the acting isn’t too bad and I think Thomas Jane does a good job and it’s especially funny to see him kind of dance and pretend to be some kind of suave guy..."

and

 

 

A review of The Pickle Jar" episode of Hung:

 

""The Pickle Jar" was the last episode I saw in advance, and the one that really convinced me that "Hung" was trending in the right direction."

I'm really enjoying the show. Tom got himself in a good spot here I think. Yesterday's episode was good. It doesn't have to be funny all the time to be good. I'm almost looking at this as a dramedy if you will. It's a fun show.

...I changed my mind...

fuck! I almost choked to death on chicago style pizza when she muttered that line. Can't wait for the next episode. This show has so much it can do story wise. Just loving it. Thanks Tom for the great work.

Hey! The next Hung episode is directed by Bronwen Hughes, who directed Stander!

 

She also has an episode that's airing on the 23th of Aug.

Just watched the pickle jar episode. The stuff with Ray's kids (who are just so friggin' ODD) was well done. Really funny. There is a loose, confident chemistry there that works great.

 

I thought it was damn funny that Ray brought the pickle jar into the hardware store, and hadn't counted the money himself.

 

What I'm enjoying more than anything else is this character study on Ray. You see him as a coach, father, an ex-husband, a burned out athlete, a friend, a "professional", a homeless man in a tent, and a decent human being all in the same half hour. It's really some excellent work being done here!!

One thing I was wondering about in "The Pickle Jar" episode was Ray's comments about blood and gore at the drive-in. Courious if that was Ray's scripted diolouge or if it was Tom's ;)
