Trivia

The Season 1 marketing for this show includes a shot of a man (face not shown) putting on a sock with holes on his large foot. This has two clever meanings: first, the holes in the sock show that he's running short on money; second, the size of his foot is intended to play on the long-standing belief that the size of a man's feet is an indication of his "endowment".

A HUGE hit for HBO
6 July 2009 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

HBO is bringing something positive into the world…another hit show!

HUNG, showcasing poignant performances by Thomas Jane and Jane Adams, captures the tone of the current American economic climate through the journey of two flawed but lovable characters, Ray Drecker and Tanya Skagle. With authentically relatable situations embedded in the premise (i.e. a high-school basketball coach trying to make ends meet, teenagers coping with the divorce of their parents, an artist succumbing to temp work) HUNG delivers in making a comedy that does not lose its sense of reality.

It's American Beauty for television that will make you laugh and leave you talking the next day.
