Another juicy titbit from Showtime. If the opening ten minutes of this show doesn't get your attention nothing will. Hank Mooney, a womanising, slugging writer who is desperate to get his family back into his life but is clueless how to.

No time is wasted in introducing us to the characters we're thrown in head first, we hit the ground running but everything falls into place. We instantly have a picture of Hank's life as it stands. His work, his active sex life, his friends, his daughter and ex-girlfriend.

It's in your face, it doesn't pull any punches. Its got a lot of attitude but at the core, beneath the exposed flesh is a story about a man wanting his family to be whole again. It's not mainstream television and that's why it works. Keep watching, I will be.

There has been a lot of controversy about this series. I'd like to add: Don't like the content? Don't watch the show!
