    "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.

    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.
  5. "Huff" got too heavy, and too predictable in its moroseness. Lying on the couch for more seems unnecessarily depressing.
  6. 38
    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]

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