Sordid Lives.... hit's to close to home??
14 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sordid Lives is the most realistic comedy I have ever seen. As someone from a Baptist family, living dead center in the middle of the Bible belt, (South Carolina/Georgia border) this show hits closer so close to home, it makes most people cringe, close their eyes, and turn it off. when no one else is around, it's the first thing they watch. Trailer Parks, hypocrisy, pill-popping, bars, sweet tea, smoking cigarettes, and ending every sentence with, Bless their heart", is as close to southern living as it gets. This is the REAL South, not the Atlanta metro south. Sissy, Latrelle, LaVonda, and the rest, (except for Ty, but more on this later) are fantastic actors. Del Shores either grew up in the South, or did the best research ever done, to get this so right. This show will make you laugh your a** off, from start to finish. the church scenes are REAL, right down to Brother Boy. (I grew up with a dead-ringer to Brother Boy. He was gay, stood 5 feet, and acted EXACTLY like Brother Boy. His name was Brian, and everyone called him cousin Bri) If you want to experience what living in the South is REALLY like, watch this series, but get ready to feel yourself being portrayed somewhere on this show. Two things. One...Ty PLAYS an actor on the show, so his lack of acting ability is most likely intentional. The second thing,,,this show was cancelled after I believe the second season, so the ending is a cliff-hanger that will NEVER be completed, leaving you with this...'ARE YOU KIDDING ME' feeling. Still, take the time to watch the episodes up to then, you will NEVER forget it.
