Refreshingly unique and funny!
on 20 September 2011
I'll admit I am a fan of Tom Jane, and just wanted to see him get his kit off! However, what I found is a talented cast with an interesting and funny storyline which unfolds into a brilliant show. I think Tom Jane is pretty good to watch in films, he does the dark, brooding type very well, and in this he is Ray Drecker, the high school jock divorced from the high school cheerleader (Anne Heche) with a burnt-out house which is the least of his problems. He decides to team up with the dappy yet lovable Tanya (Jane Adams) to promote his "Happiness Consultant" business, using his biggest asset!
I must admit, I thought this was a brilliant idea for a show and I really did enjoy the first half of the season, particular Jane Adams as Tanya, his loyal and caring pimp! She is superb! However, I am not a fan of the conniving and back-stabbing Lenore (Rebecca Creskoff), granted she is superbly played however, I didn't like the direction of the plot and was disappointed with the finale.
Overall, an enjoyable first season with Tom Jane in the lead, and Jane Adams supporting, I think most will enjoy the refreshing comedy and naughty bits!
