Storyline

Down on his luck after losing his job, '60s activist/ex-con Hap Collins can't help but listen when his seductive former wife Trudy, for whom he still pines, resurfaces with promises of finding a sunken treasure in the Deep South. Joining the adventure is Hap's unlikely buddy Leonard Pine, an openly gay black Vietnam War vet with a bad temper and little use for Trudy's feminine wiles. Soon enough the simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into bloody mayhem.

Gritty, quirky, thrilling drama with some awesome acting
11 June 2016 | by Perse_phoneSee all my reviews

Hap & Leonard is a gritty, suspenseful show with interesting, 3-dimensional characters portrayed by very talented actors.

This was truly a fun ride. As other reviewers might have already mentioned, the story and the characters are introduced slowly but you get a feel for the plot, the southern atmosphere and the relationships between the characters. The chemistry, friendship and banter between Hap and Leonard is highly entertaining all on its own, even without the suspenseful, dark "turn" of events which takes place later in the plot.

The show combines a southern, serene and at times somewhat glum atmosphere, the story of an amusing, maybe even (at times) unlikely friendship of two guys and my favourite kind of crime comedy -- not lacking gore and violence on top of that. The latter is bloody but overall very fitting, meeting the tone and the general gritty feel of the show.

Overall, this was a very positive surprise of a (fairly unknown--as it seems) show with a great variety of interesting characters and an entertaining, dark-ish plot. I'm so glad that I found this on amazon prime! Totally recommended.
