Review of Hung

Hung (2009–2011)
1/10
Sophomoric garbage
29 June 2009
A silly, sophomoric premise delivered with ham-fisted cynicism. A shame, really, because there's some real talent involved here.

The show misses on all counts: it's not funny, sophisticated, insightful, interesting or entertaining.

Worse, it takes itself VERY seriously. It's like hearing a great joke told by someone with no comic timing.

It's like a college freshman who's just discovered Nietzsche. Terribly exciting for them, but tedious for the rest of us!

It's neither edgy nor innovative. It parades its essential narcissism without apology.

A swing and a miss for HBO.
