25 February 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Quite an excellent brilliant show... not at all betraying the spirit of the homo-graphic film. A nice and sharp portrayal of a very funny dysfunctional southern family with the "Billy Wilder touch" hitting Tennessee Williams where it hurts... never cynical and outrageously funny. Let's hope a second season might some day get to the screens... until then it's worth enjoying the first one on DVD even more though as some pretty good bonuses were smartly included. Especially do not miss the bloopers !!! and enjoy the uncensored dialogs. Director / writer Del Shores deserves a special review for shaking the establishment once again with intelligence if not to say wit. He is indeed a "smuggler" as Martin Scorcese would say and we're pretty much in need of them in what would otherwise be our very "sordid lives"...
