Set in the late 1980's, Hap and Leonard is a darkly comic swamp noir of two best friends, one femme fatale, a crew of washed up revolutionaries, a pair of murderous psycho killers, some lost loot, and the fuzz.
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.
Episode 2 "The Bottoms" is also the name of another Joe R Lansdale (award winning) novel although it doesn't feature the characters of Hap and Leonard. Like a lot of Lansdale stories it does share the same setting of East Texas, where the author himself is from. See more »
About time the unlikely bond of two great friends came together, one Black one White and the Black guy is gay for a change. I love the Acting in this , the story and the general plot. great stuff. Watch it.Michael Williams was brilliant in 'Boardwalk Empire and I am sad they did-int continue that show however, He (Williams) is a stunning soft cold and warm Actor who can bring any character to life in leaps and bounds.I would hire him in a second for any Role .
