Storyline

Marketing Ray as a high-end "happiness consultant," Tanya tracks down former law-firm colleague Lenore, who agrees to take Ray for a test ride in exchange for the names and numbers of wealthy women. Jessica's obsessive behavior grates on her kids, who push Ray to fix his fire-damaged house. A contractor promises Ray a "wolf pack" discount for repairs, but money mismanagement has Ray strapped for cash. That could change after Ray's session with Lenore - or so he and Tanya hope.

Entertaining but not inspiring ; good performers and characters ; short format but intriguing story
1 February 2010 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

This second episode wasn't as interesting as the first one. It was still entertaining but not as funny even it should make you laugh enough. But what I really missed were the sad and smart elements of the pilot that allowed us to relate to the characters. In fact it mostly focused on the pimp arc and not really how the protagonist is going to get things back right on track. So I really hope it won't become as superficial as shows like Weeds and Californication. Moreover as it not even lasted a half hour I worry that the episodes duration won't allow the writers to properly cover essential topics like character development.

But even if I was slightly disappointed by it I can only recommend it because I think the show has potential. The acting is good and even Tanya grew on me. There's also something intriguing going on with the mum and their children. In fact they're so ugly that they reminded me of the King in the film Dragon Heart. I also enjoyed how the plot was reverse designed because it's often surprising to know the end first. All the new characters revolving around Ray should also bring up some spice to his story even if I really hope it won't make him less authentic.
