Watch Hung

Many of today's shows focus on a main character that is having difficulty surviving while practicing their current profession, but not quite like the show "Hung." In this HBO comedy and drama combination piece, the main role of Ray Drecker is played by Thomas Jane. He is a struggling school teacher that finds himself having to resort to other means of income in order to support his loving family. Against the judgement of society, he decides to utilize his natural male endowment to bring about a slew of new income his way.

Deciding to become a male escort, he finds himself in all sorts of crazy situations with the women that he interacts with. His secrets must be kept from his family and friends, for becoming a male escort may shock them if known. On top of this drama, Drecker is at a constant battle of trying to maintain the happiness of his female pimps, which later in the show come head to head in a battle for supremacy. Calling themselves "Happiness Consultants," they not only book Drecker into some hairy situations, but give him great deal of competition as well. HBO decided to conclude the show after the third season, but not for poor viewing attendance.

The story simply came to a complete circle and the folly of his career choices and of those around him were brought to light to themselves and others. Drecker's secrets life from his kids also ends in a dramatic onslaught of events as well. Finding balance as a male escort and father proved to be more than enough for just about anyone to handle. Somehow, Drecker seems to pull it off quite cleverly in this series, with lots of twists and turns that one might never expect. With a subject matter such as that in this premise, it is obviously not a family-oriented show for all ages. The comic relief is risque enough to be unsuitable, but tolerable for adults that don't mind a few sexual references every once in awhile during scenes.
