I saw the HBO program Hung for the first time last night and was actually quite impressed.

I sat down at a friends who had recorded 3 episodes, intigued but really not expecting too much other than "man with large penis, down on his luck, falls into escorting and woos the ladies!" How long can HBO keep this one joke going before people get bored?

Now I missed the first episode but I was surprised to find it had much more depth of story than I thought it would. It was amusing, reasonably well acted, and i'm actually looking forward to the next episode.

I thinks it's too early to say if it will have a positive effect on male companionship but it may just open up the idea to women who have never thought of the service before.

Curious to know other's thoughts who have seen it.

I saw the first episode in a hotel room last night myself.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised as well.  The main character is easy to connect with as we all know that same high school jock.  Other characters seem quirky enough, in the usual HBO fashion, to keep twists and turns going in the story.  I'll be curious to see how he progresses beyond his "Big Donnie" profile.

I already have a running debate with someone about who his skittish first client was.  I say it's his ex, she thinks it's the ex's new husband.

As for long term effects, I think you're spot on.  It may not spark a large movement, but it could start some interesting conversations and make women aware of us.

I've been enjoying the show a great deal this week and have been recommending it to my friends, hoping this will spark discussions about male escorting.  I'll report back on any feedback I get from them.:)

I'll try anything once, twice if it feels good, three times just to make sure!

Great blog Smith!  Very nice job of explaining the show and the industry, and well-written too.

Cheers,

Holly introduced me to this show. Have watched all the clips available and it looks great! Ive been trying to find a way to watch it in New Zealand (asked on Facebook and Forums over here) but no luck  :'(.

I haven't seen the show but I want to. I've been a little put off by the idea that a large penis makes a great male escort (similiar to the idea that large boobs make a great female escort). Good to hear that it seems real and likable.

I haven't seen the show over here in the uk either and it does sound like it could be quite good.  Hope they show it some time here

I will be keeping my eyes peeled

I wonder how you could get it over there. Do you guys get Netflix?

Hung in my opinion is pretty good. I didn't have high hopes for it at first but it's funny, quirky, and you can't help but like Ray, the main character.

That said, his pimp is okay although a tad wishy washy, his kids bizarre in the looks department, his pimps connection Lenore, a complete psycho, and his ex-wife annoying. Apart from that its a great show. :)

Did I just completely change my opinion?

Well to be honest

I am sure the UK will be catching up very soon and show it.  They are big copy cats of good shows in the US so I am sure some high flying executive producer will pay for the show to be shown here pretty soon
