    Default HBO's new comedy: Hung. Will you watch?

    HBO's 'Hung': A risque worth taking?

    May 27, 2009, 09:09 PM | by Dan Snierson
    Categories: Television

    We're about to find out if size matters. HBO just announced a premiere date—June 28—for its new comedy Hung, which centers on a disillusioned gym teacher (Thomas Jane) who decides to use his below-the-waist treasure to make a living as a male prostitute (to fumbling results).

    After checking out the amusing teaser for the show, I now know what I will be doing on that Sunday night. Here are five reasons why I'm willing to hang around for Hung. 1. It’s an audacious, bodacious concept, if not the most provocative premise for any show debuting this summer. 2. It kinda-sorta reminds me of Loverboy—starring Patrick Dempsey as a pizza delivery boy turned underdog male prostitute—and that flick turned out to be a most underrated teen comedy 3. We have already learned that there is great potential when a sadsack high school teacher/father suddenly starts a dirty moonlighting gig (see: Breaking Bad) 4. I’m curious to see how the producers build intrigue and comedy around his you-know-what without making it all about an eventual Dirk Diggler-esque reveal. 5. The pilot episode is 15 minutes, er, longer than the normal half-hour installments. That's rich.

    I saw tons of promo for this waiting for True Blood to come on this week. It looks really good. Is anyone else planning on watching?

    I think I saw another thread about this somewhere..... and yeah, I caught the previews this week too. It looks like it could be either hysterical or lame. I am tempted to watch it though!

    Patrick Dempsey's name should never be mentioned in a column about men with big dicks, real or fictional.

    NSFW. Don't look if you heart Patrick.

    where is his penis? that's not even a small dick. there is no dick. just a bald patch in his pubes where his dick should be. and balls.




    an HBO series about a teacher with a big dick who decides to become a male hooker? hell yes i'm going to watch.

    I don't want to watch this show because I think I saw Anne Heche in the previews and I loathe her

    Yep.

    I love Thomas Jane and until 'Big Love' returns I need a new show!

    My DVR will be set.

    I'll watch to see how it is just because I love most of HBO's shows.

    I wonder how hard and long they can stretch out this premise.

    I doubt it has staying power-it'll probably come to a premature conclusion.

    I will only watch provided they don't get all coy about letting us see the whole package.

    Just watched the pilot this morning.

    I loved it!

    Thomas Jane and Jane Adams make a good team!

    I didn't expect much from this show, but after watching the pilot it has some potential.

    I hate Heche, too. Her 'acting' is like watching flies dance on shit. Thankfully, she wasn't a huge part of the show.
