    The acting is uneven and erratic. (Particularly Ty). Episodes are too short and choppy (need to be a full hour). But there ARE some great laughs. It's a bit campy and the emotional outburts are definitely over the top, making it something of a charicature. That makes it hard to make Ty's "coming out" as seriously as it's played.

    Sordid Lives: The Series has a decidedly amateurish tone, with shoddy production values and acting that shows some seams. But the tone works in the show's favor.

    Del Shores brings his movie and stage show about crazy Texan Women and slightly-less-crazy gay men to TV with a cavalcade of camp icons and brilliant, canon-ready Beth Grant. [25 Jul 2008, p.64]
  3. Shores has created a funny, loopy, off-kilter comedy that, truth be told, probably would play just as well on other cable channels, including Comedy Central and TV Land.
