I read about the HBO show Hung in a magazine. They set up the premise: High school basketball coach with huge penis decides to capitalize on his biggest assest and become a prostitite (or something like that). The mag asked if readers believed this was going to be a new series.

I didn't. But I was wrong.

Hung stars the sexy Thomas Jane as a divorced, middle-aged dad who has no money and decides to sleep with women for cash to pay his expenses after his house is destroyed by fire.

It's a dark comedy and the show really wants to make a statement by pointing out the things we all must resort to for money in times like these.


The show just premiered and airs on Sundays at 10pm.

I haven't seen it yet, but I can't say I'm not curious.

Have you seen Hung? What do you think of this show?
