Riley now enjoys 'spoiling' the special list customers. An instant favorite is TJ 'camel' Braswell, an oil rig worker who comes for at least a week before each sex-starved shift. Learning he never digested being dumped by his bride, she even tries to mend that couple. All the working girls swoon over hunky laundry man Nick. Missing husband Kyle' brother Evan proves a wonderful, patient substitute father, but Riley suspects him of helping Kyle keep secret what seems to be a secret second family which she finds out about accidentally. Suddenly, Kyle seeks contact, shortly after he's back home. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Kyle's "Tivo" list has a folder labeled "Texas Football" then lists recordings of various games, including "Oklahoma vs Texas Wed 8:00", "Texas vs Alabama Wed 8:00" and "Texas vs Ohio Tue 8:00", along with Saturday listings for games against Florida and Virginia. Although it may be plausible for Texas to play those teams during the regular season, all those games could not be played while keeping the mandatory Big 12 schedule of conference opponents (the only Big 12 conference game listed is against Oklahoma). Also, college football Division 1 football games are not scheduled for Tuesdays or Wednesdays, and especially not the "Red River Rivalry" between Texas and Oklahoma, which is always played on a Saturday in October.

hot hunk of the week TV show
14 April 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

Massage parlor show. Sounds like very steamy stuff, but, guys, beware, this show definitely is geared towards the fairer sex, with some (muscular) goodies for them. Well, judging from the pilot and this, the second episode, it's gonna be six-packs and men's feet. In close-up. So, The Raven is wading about in the enemy camp. What do I find to rise up over the embarrassing result? Really not all that much. Despite its racy theme, the show plays like it has undertones of some Christian channel, the script is very conscious of religion, in the pilot, Riley glancing up guiltily, Linette's boyfriend mentioned in this episode, stuff working out like it's a schmaltzy TV movie, aaarghh, this business is sugary sweet except for the rippling six-packs and the men's soles and toes filling the screen. Okay, so Jenn appears in lingerie during her sessions with the hot-blooded male customers, but come on, rent HEARTBREAKERS, you JLH fans. Believe me, that is some of the best advice I have given here on IMDb. To guys. If you are a hot-blooded woman, I suppose, there might be some titillation here, JLH sure gets the kind of paying customer that is representative of the average lonely heart: big Tarzan Playgirl type studs. No wimpy nerdy old boys. Ooh I'm sure massage parlor workers can relate!!

I must have missed something. The pilot ended with Kyle phoning. That story-line is discarded. Maybe that was a dream as well?

Loretta Divine. Very basic character. No sass. No reason visible why she was chosen for the part. I wonder why...

The only saving grace of this show is that Jennifer Love Hewitt is foxily cute. There is definitely, for me, no other reason to watch. The Season Two is freakishly expensive due to corporate greed, I will not partake. I am still considering the original TV movie, but I'm already kinda bummed with this, so...
