    Thanks to Adams and Kreskoff's delightfully wicked power struggle, Hung feels fresher now than it felt last summer and more textured.
  2. While the show does contain a few obvious penis punch lines, it is so much more than its gimmicky name suggests, offering plenty of heart, along with worthwhile riffs on the national economy, American resourcefulness and, yes, gender dynamics.

    Hung grows more penetrating with every episode. There are still throwaway scenes (like between Ray and the rich neighbor whose having an affair with him), but they contribute to the way in which Ray is coming to terms with his lifestyle.

    Although at times Hung unravels and feels as lost as Ray Drecker himself, its individual scenes present as darkly funny and disturbing a parable of the disheartening state of American culture as you'll find on the small screen.

    I feel that there's a really good dark comedy about the decline of the American dream struggling to emerge from the often-forced plots.

    While Hung has its stage set to see some of these types of stories play out, scene after scene positions Ray as a cipher for other characters.
  7. It turns out, not merely depressing, but unfunny in its comedic moments and unmoving in its dramatic ones. Which is weird, because Thomas Jane is charming as gigolo Ray and Jane Adams' Tanya is always interesting as his pimp.

Not all TV series need to be 9 seasons long. Expand
