Alumni game
30 August 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Ray and Mike are appalled when they see the destruction some misguided individual has done to the locker room. Gone are most of the stuff that was kept there, plus the vandals decided to decorate the place with erotic symbols which were not too flattering to the home team. Mike, in a reflective moment asks Ray if Damon could have been involved. After all, he was seen urinating on the home plate at the school's athletic field. As a way to fix the problem Mike suggests an alumni game where the money from ticket sales are used to repair the damage. The star attraction would be Ray, a legendary figure in his high school days. It is clear Ray is out of practice as we watch him train at the batting range. The Wolves would have no chance, based in what we see.

Mike, who is still seeing Francis, takes her to the aquarium. They seem to be having a perfect date. Everything comes to a halt when Mike suggests to Francis the possibility she might like to sponsor the team by buying a block of tickets for the upcoming alumni game. The request surprises her. Tanya decides to have a chat with Francis about the money she had not paid for seeing Mike during the week, an unscheduled visit, she was not told about. Francis is clearly disappointed at the suggestion. She feels she is being taken advantage of.

Ray, having lunch with Damon at a diner, asks him if he had anything to do with the vandalism of the locker room. Damon is clearly insulted. After all, he only peed on the home plate! Ray spots Claire, the pregnant woman with whom he had sex before. She leaves a note for him to call her. That leads into a visit to Claire's house. Ray surprises her in the bathtub. Because of her pregnancy, she only feels good soaking in the tub. Ray offers to perform another kind of sexual sensation on her, which sends her into repeated orgasms, but Ray ends up dislocating his shoulder. He will not be able to play!

Jessica is surprised by Ronnie as she examines the rash on her breast area. Being a dermatologist, Ronnie knows exactly what is causing the rash. Jessica decides to bring Damon and Darby to the alumni game. At the last moment she decides to go into the stadium. Ray, who was acting as a coach sees his team losing and decides to go and play in spite of the pain in his shoulder. He amazes the crowd with a homer. Ronnie, who comes to the game tells Jessica the cause of her problem is that she is allergic to Ray. Ronnie ends up walking to Ray to tell him to leave his wife alone. After all, Jess left Ray for him, in spite of his status as a jock.

Mike, who sees Francis after the game, wants to know why her change of attitude. She tries to explain her conversation with Tanya and the exorbitant amounts she spends to have a good time with him. Tanya comes at the end of the game and sees Mike and Francis, who in turn, see her come to where they are, and immediately begins to run away through the field.

The end of the episode finds Ray meeting Jess and the twins after the game. Ray asks Jessica to do her cheer leading routine for everyone's benefit, and she complies.

This episode was directed by Bronwen Hughes, who has been active in television. The screenplay was written by Julia Brownell and Eileen, both have contributed to the program. This was not one of the most exciting moments in the 2010 season. The creators of the series are sadly missed because of their sharp incisive take of the characters. It is not a failure, by any means, the episode needed more naughtiness, something that is missing in this installment.

The ensemble work of the cast is remarkable. "Hung" has been fun to watch. Obviously it is not for everybody, but those of us who tune into it really appreciate the efforts of Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin in creating a series for adults that is incisive, as well as entertaining.
