    "Huff" is one of the best dramas on TV and easily the best one airing currently on pay cable.

    The unique amalgam of a show that "Huff" has been -- a sort of sampler platter of hyperbolic though realistic, sympathetic but often self-sabotaging characters -- retains its balance and tone quite well this season.
  3. Against everything else available to viewers, "Huff" is premium cable-grade content without the "wows" that justify the extra expense.
  4. The language in "Huff" is still graphic and foul. What redeems it, as always, is the artful acting and occasional small scenes of quiet beauty.

    [It is] a mess of unconvincing drama, and the acting veers from magnificent to quite poor.
  6. "Huff" got too heavy, and too predictable in its moroseness. Lying on the couch for more seems unnecessarily depressing.

    The second flight of episodes shares much with year one -- showy [performances] tethered to uneven writing and a less-defined premise than those of other top pay TV dramas.

    It feels less like Freud's fun house than an opportunity for one performer after another to launch into frenzied, vituperative speeches. [24 Apr 2006, p.39]

    Despite the storylines' incessant emotional and psychological delvings, the result is an inert if not annoying muddle among unpleasantly profane people whose prospective salvation isn't worth wading toward.

    Huff is stubbornly inert, going all over the place tonally while going nowhere emotionally.

    Best show! I have all my friends hooked on it after I bought the 1st season DVD. This show was cancelled due to not enough/the right advertising and NOT because of the content. Better than HOUSE. Full Review »
