Episode Synopsis: HUNG Season 2 Episode 9 “Fat Off My Love or I’m the Allergen” – A bad day at school gets worse when Mike accuses Ray of betrayal. Ronnie vents his frustrations with Jessica at a dermatology banquet, sending his wife running for the exit. Empowered by confession, Tanya lashes out at Ray, Lenore and Horny Patty (Lauren Weedman).
Okay, viewer #4 checking in. I REALLY enjoyed Hung this season, but if they ended it on Ray and Tanya driving away with a dozen cows in tow, I could live with that. I loved how they de-emphasized Jessica and the kids who have always been a huge weakness in seasons past. And the Lenore ending, wow, I did NOT see that coming. Poor Horny Patty.
I do think most of HBO's comedies exist in a level of comedy gravity that keeps them too anchored for laughs, which is why I found HUNG season 3 so refreshing. There was a color and a buoyancy to the stories and characters this season that made it such a fun series to look forward to on a weekly basis. The women were sexy, the stories fresh, and the characters continually growing and struggling for their victories.
