Storyline

The story of Bible-thumping Baptists, beer-swilling bar trash and everyone in between in a small Texas town, contrasted with the appearance-driven world of Hollywood and the hysterical comedy and tender poignancy that come from learning to be yourself and love the family you have instead of the family you want.

Best Yet to be Discovered by Prime Time Comedy
8 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great comedy, when will F/X or Bravo pick it up? Sordid Lives should be seen by a larger audience. Livy, Rue, and all the wonderful cast, finally bring a comedy I can set up my folding chair to, crack a beer or three, and watch in utter amazement. Kind of like a Texas train wreck. The telephone episode was shear (no pun intended) delight, the comic timing of Lucille Ball, and the droll, wittiness of Seinfeld. What a great escape from my miserable life! It's always nice to see an ensemble cast of actors who are comfortable in their own skin. Of course drug use, albeit prescription drugs, drunkenness, adultery, gay encounters, self gratification, and kinky leg's off, sex, will have any good Texas Republican in a stew; but we all know they will be watching in the privacy of their own homes.
