Pop Poll—Will you tune in for the premiere of Hung on Channel Seven?

Pop Poll: Will You Tune in for the Premiere of Hung?

Ever since we first learned of its, er, suggestive name, I've been curious to see Hung. Possibilities for sick jokes aside, there are lots of solid reasons I'm looking forward to checking out this comedy tonight.

For one thing, the extra-long (. . . hee) premiere episode is directed by Alexander Payne of Election and Sideways fame. For another, the show comes from Dmitry Lipkin, who previously created the world of modern-day traveling scam artists in The Riches. Hung stars Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker, a once-promising basketball star turned down-on-his-luck small-time coach. In the midst of a particularly painful string of missteps, he attends a self-help conference and realises he can perhaps make a living using the one asset nobody has ever doubted: his . . . um, you know. It's certainly a unique idea and I'll be curious to see how it works as a comedy. Check out the trailer and let me know—will you be tuning in?
