Personal Opinion

Rarely TV shows hold my attention, I get board with the plot and just shut the TV off. I started recording "Claws" because a few of my friends have worked on the production and I was just curious after hearing them talk about "Uncle Daddy" and the entire list of characters. I started watching the first episode only to binge watch the entire season to the current episode. I was hooked! I had to know what happened next and I have not done that since the days of Falcon Crest and Dallas when I was a kid! I HAD to tune in Sunday night when the current episode was to air because I just had to know what was going to happen. It is not a family friendly show by any means, it is directed to mature audiences. You will see T&A if you watch it so don't be shocked just hide your eyes. Again, I am hooked on the show! I think I need my nails done now too.
