5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent, But Short-lived Sci-Fi TV Series
Michael Duggan, Carol Flint, Mark Levin and Billy Ray created an interesting concept for a new sci-fi TV program.Airing in the fall of 1994, their show was entitled "Earth 2" and was set 200 years in the future."Earth 2" painted a very dark future for mankind in which the Earth is no longer capable of supporting terrestrial life.Consequently, the surviving members of the human race have been living in orbiting space stations; but living in the sterile environments has created a sickness called the Syndrome.A wealthy woman named Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino) is convinced that the key to mankind's survival, including her Syndrome-infected son Ulysses 'Uly' Adair (Joey Zimmerman), is to once again live in a natural environment.Gathering 250 other Syndrome-infected families, she pursues the establishment of a colony on a planet named G889 orbiting a star 22 light-years away; but the current government has other plans for planet G889. Undeterred, Devon, her son and some of the other 250 families embark on a ship named "Eden Advance" for G889 to establish a community in advance of the main colonization; but the ship has been sabotaged.The ship arrives at G889, but the ship soon explodes.Stranded on G889, the ship's survivors attempt to settle and begin new lives on G889.The survivors include Devon, Uly, engineer John Danziger (Clancy Brown), his daughter True (J. Madison Wright), pilot Alonzo Solace (Antonio Sabato Jr.), Dr. Julia Heller (Jessica Steen), Earth-government representative Morgan Martin (John Gegenhuber), his wife Bess (Rebecca Gayheart) and Uly's cyborg teacher Yale (Sullivan Walker).

Unfortunately, lower than expected ratings for the series caused its cancellation after its first season; so only a total of 22 episodes were ever produced. These episodes include the following:

1. "First Contact (1)".The embarkation to G889, destruction of the ship and survivors reaching the planet's surface.G889 is inhabited by subterranean natives called Terrians.

2. "First Contact (2)".Uly is abducted by Terrians, but he is returned after they heal him from they Syndrome.

3. "The Man Who Fell to Earth (Two)". An astronaut who had previously crash-landed on G889, Gaal (Tim Curry), kills the commander (Richard Bradford).Solace has Terrian dreams.

4. "Life Lessons". Gaal tries to disrupt the survivors' encampment.

5. "Promises, Promises".Gaal abducts several Terrians; but the colonists free them. Gaal disappears underground and is never seen again.

6. "A Memory Play".The colonists discover a third escape pod with people infected by a woman that had been implanted by the government to sabotage the ship.Grendler saliva is the cure.

7. "Water". Devon & Dazinger search for water.

8. "The Church of Morgan". Morgan & Bess argue while Dr. Heller contemplates removing Uly's pineal gland; but Uly is becoming an evolutionary link with the Terrians.

9. "The Enemy Within". Dr. Heller injects some of Uly's DNA into herself, she goes nuts and is abandoned.

10. "Redemption". Dr. Heller rejoins the colonists thanks to Solace.

11. "Moon Cross". A woman, Mary (Kelli Williams), is found living among the Terrians, who want Uly to be their link with colonists.

12. "Better Living Through Morganite (1)". As Yale regains his memory, Morgan finds glowing rocks.

13. "Better Living Through Morganite (2)".Mary saves Yale from Terrian punishment after he's been captured (along with Morgan and Bess) and finds out he's not a criminal.

14. "Grendlers in the Myst". The colonists believe they have located a killer, but he's only the son of the real killer that's now only a hologram.

15. "The Greatest Love Story Never Told". Danzinger comes across a colony of reformed criminals

16. "Brave New Pacifica". Two scavenging Grendlers come across a box containing human blood.

17. "After the Thaw". Dazinger is possessed by a an evil Terrian's spirit.

18. "The Boy Who Would be Terrian King". A future version of Uly travels back in time to have Devon hide some his blood.

19. "Survival of the Fittest".Several colonists start to act strange after consuming a Grendler when they are stranded.

20. "All About Eve".Dying from a mysterious disease, the colonists find a crashed ship from 100 years ago whose computer may explain the cure.

21. "Natural Born Grendlers". Solace gets depressed about being marooned while Devon & Bess trade for supplies with a friendly Grendler.

22. "Flower Child".Dazinger & Bess have strange symptoms after being sprayed with a native plant's pollen.

Overall, I rate "Earth 2-The Complete Series" with 5 out of 5 stars. It's a shame that this show was not given sufficient opportunity to continue past its first and only season.

5-0 out of 5 stars G889 on DVD at last!
Long-awaited by fans to come to home video, Earth 2 chronicles the first months of survival for a small party of human colonizers stranded on what seems to be an ideal terraform world.Emerging from a mildly dystopian, bureaucratic, and ecologically disastrous future in which much of humanity has moved onto space stations, this planet - G889, or "Earth 2" - is a veritable Shangri-La.Sabotaged by a manipulative orbiting government, however, the crew is faced with a paranoid landscape in which they cannot trust each other at first, or the initial appearance of G889. Some of these colonists intended to make landfall on the planet, others didn't, and none of them anticipated the trials they would face from the planet, from each other, and from a distant but subtly menacing Earth.They must form a cooperative band to not only survive, but acclimate to this strange planet while trekking to the site of their planned advance colony before a large colony ship arrives.

After a decade in which the only available copies of these 21 episodes were those recorded from the original (and occasional syndication) broadcasts, and after recent petitioning by a dedicated core of fans, Earth 2 finally comes to DVD.Though not inherently creative (many of the show's aliens, incidents and general plot themes could be found throughout science fiction literature and films), Earth 2 did weave together disparate fiction conventions in unique and often charming ways to produce a literal wagon train in the stars.Underlying themes of environmentalism, indigenous rights, female empowerment, and repentance, though, added a substance to what might have otherwise been a bland, repetitive imitation of other science fiction.Although occasionally hokey and even melodramatic (i.e., time-lapse cloud footage and poor music video-quality "dreamscape" scenes do degrade the show at times), this short-run series remained entertaining, consistent, and resonant to real-world issues; it continues to be on the eve of its return to television via this 3-disc DVD set.The set is likely scant on extra features, as the series was filmed before making-of specials for television shows had become the ubiquitous smorgasbord DVD consumers have come to expect on current series' releases.However, the episodes alone are worth the purchase.

Fans of more recent television series, such as "Firefly" (though Earth 2 admittedly lacks the verbal wit and relative sophistication of Joss Wedon's sci-fi series), may enjoy giving these discs a spin.Readers of Niven's "Ringworld" series or Robinson's "Mars" series may also be interested in giving Earth 2 a try. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Episodes. Not so great extras
The DVD version of this series is dangerous because the story arch is so compelling you'll find yourself sitting and watching episode after episode unable to stop just to see what happens next. If you've already seen the shows you'll watch them in great anticipation of those dynamic character moments contained in each episode (Yo-Yo Ma at the White House, sparing between the Bartletts, the moment when Donna learns of the President's medical condition). It's incredibly enjoyable to spend time with these characters and Mr. Sorkin's writing tickles us and touches our hearts such that we're reluctant to leave this amazing world and these equally amazing people who populate it.

The unfortunate part of the DVD package is the extras. The commentaries are just plain awful. They are stilted, awkward and boring, offering very little insight into the making of the show, backstage with the actors or any technical information - or what we're all hoping for -- some real gossip. In the published scripts of the show, Mr. Sorkin has written introductions which provide fascinating anecdotes about what was going on around the construction of the script and/or what was the inspiration for the story. That doesn't happen on the DVD. The outtakes or gag reel is short and not very satisfying. And where are the taped interviews with the actors and show's creators? I wonder if the departure from West Wing by Mr. Sorkin and Mr. Schlamme (which seemed to happen not be their choice) has created a situation in which pulling together some meaningful documentary regarding this significant television drama undoable.

Buy the DVDs to watch the episodes over and over (and you will, I'm sure). Buy the published scripts for the real "behind the scenes" stuff that adds a bit of color and depth to an already deeply colorful and moving television show.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic First Season & Superb Second Season
I didn't start watching The West Wing till early in the second season, but it quickly became my favorite show (replacing Aaron Sorkin's other masterpiece, 'Sports Night', which had just been dropped by ABC). It was killing me that I'd missed so many episodes, so I was ecstatic when I heard that Warner was finally releasing the first season on DVD! Having the episodes on DVD is great, even for episodes you've seen. If you've seen The West Wing, you know how rapid-fire the dialogue is; with DVD, it's easy to back up a few seconds to catch a line you missed.

Sorkin is an amazing writer. He is able to weave a compelling and entertaining storyline involving real issues facing our country and world. The characters debate those issues in a way that illuminates both sides of the argument. You'll likely find yourself thinking, 'I'd never looked at it that way', at least a couple times every episode. It may be fiction, but it is fiction that inspires hope that our political system CAN work.

The show is definitely a thought-provoking drama, but that certainly doesn't mean it's dry or boring. There is a huge dose of witty banter and a fair share of light-hearted sub-plots in every episode. Great writing, great acting, great sets and music, all come together to form what has become my favorite TV show ever. Get these DVD's to get caught up on early episodes you missed, or to revisit the incredible beginnings of this masterpiece.

The 1998 Fox television series Significant Others amounted to six episodes (three of which never aired) before cancellation, but this two-disc set strongly suggests that the witty, nimble dramedy from the creators of Party of Five deserved a longer run. In a nutshell, PO5 went on hiatus in '98, and irritated fans of that series ignored replacement program Significant Others, which follows the career and romance hassles of three twentysomething best friends. Fox pulled the plug on Significant Others very quickly, but fans of actor Scott Bairstow (who went on to a recurring role on PO5) and two terrific actresses, Jennifer Garner and Elizabeth Mitchell (who next turned up in the PO5 spin-off, Time of Your Life), should definitely look into this truncated project.

Bairstow plays Henry, an aspiring writer reduced to churning out website pornography and inexperienced enough to enter, wide-eyed, into an affair with his older, married boss. Campbell (Eion Bailey of Band of Brothers), in defiance of his parents' wishes, stumbles through initial steps to become a producer of children's videos; he's also coping with the shock of discovering pals Henry and Nell (Garner) are getting it on and that an old girlfriend (Mitchell) is marrying his shallow, older brother. Talented Nell, destined for big things but afraid of commitment, hops from one important job to the next and develops an attachment to her absent father's best friend. As with PO5 (and Sisters, another primetime series from some of the same producers), Significant Others treats serious topics with smart dialogue and enough of a light touch to make the series feel comforting and familiar. Still, that's not enough for the irrepressible Garner (Alias, 13 Going on 30), whose enchanting, tragi-comic performance on this series is almost larger-than-life and reminds one of such Golden Age stars as Jean Arthur and Ginger Rogers. --Tom Keogh ...

5-0 out of 5 stars long overdue
This show came out when I was 24 and meant the world to me. I still remember one scene, I think they were playing pool - to this day when that song comes on the radio I think of this show! I just stumbled across the info on this being released later this summer. I had to reread the title because I could not believe it. For anyone out there who liked/likes the guilty pleasure of shows such as Felicity, Party of 5 (the earlier years), etc...check this out and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. If anyone remembers the show Relativity, I would pay big bucks to see that on DVD next. Fingers crossed.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Sweet character driven look at being young & pursuing life
I originally watched this series when it debuted in '98 because I adored Scott Bairstow. Only 3 episodes were aired & I have all 3 taped. I happened to have rewatched the show a couple of months ago. I had forgotten all about it until it was mentioned in a special about Jennifer Garner, who I didn't know anything about at the time. When I initially watched the show I found the way that the three lead characters (played by Scott Bairstow, Jennifer Garner & Eion Bailey) interacting in a love triangle, to be sweet & adorable. I was a teenager at that time. Now, rewatching it as a woman in my early 20s it has more resonance, because it's also about the characters' journey to find themselves. Campbell Chasin (Eion Bailey) is still looking to carve out a name for himself in a family where everyone else is expected to go into the family business, just like his brother Ben Chasin (Dark Angel's Michael Weatherly) has. Ben is also applauded by his parents, because he is getting married. He seems to have it all together, until we see him with regret at a missed female fling opportunity right after his wedding. Campbell decides that he can make a killing selling children's videos & tries to get either of his friends to go in on it with him. He's also upset, because he discovers that Nell Glennon (Jennifer Garner), one of his best friend's & ex, is now hooking up with his other best friend, Henry Calloway (Scott Bairstow). Nell is an excellent worker who is so afraid of getting stuck in one track for the rest of her life that she actually quits her job after getting promoted. Her major issue is committing to anything. Henry fancies himself a serious writer. However, he has to pay the bills & does so by writing soft core porn. His boss is the slightly older Charlotte (Gigi Rice) whom he lusts after. The first 3 episodes had me intrigued. I'm assuming that this set includes all 6 episodes (the other 3 of which were unaired) & I'd love to see the rest of them. This is also a great price for this set. Snatch them up before the prices inflates. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Light Fun+
I thought this movie to be charming and witty. Though it would appear to be very light, you look deeper and pay attention to how the characters roll around each other, it becomes somewhat of a fun, tangled web-much like our own lives would be seen if we could view them from a third person. Happy and sad, it's a great flick for a rainy Sunday afternoon. As an added bonus who knew Jeanne Tripplehorn could do slightly, slapstick humor the way she does, hats off to her. Add tacky, tasteless and yes, tired Sarah Jessica Parker and its great!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie
This is a really great movie which is hard to find these days.
Yes, it's a "chick flick", but it doesn't have the sex, nudity and unneeded scenes in alot of movies out there.
It's a classic romance but it also makes us think about life in the big picture and how everything relates to everything else in the world.

1-0 out of 5 stars So bad- you have to watch it- again and again.
I actually did look forward to the release of this film due to the premise of the plot and being a sucker for a good romantic comedy. An added bonus was that Scott Winant of "thirtysomething" fame (my all-time favorite television show) was the director/producer. Simple plot- two people meet briefly throughout their lives on parallel courses until their lives become involved with the future of an old apartment building slated for demolition. The Fates enlighten them with the realization that they are soulmates destined to meet and fall in love. Well, I was a sucker- for going to see this movie! I can't think of another movie that got yanked out of my local cinema faster than this one was (less than a week). I can't think of another movie in recent memory that I checked my watch as many times as I did during this flick. It was more exciting to look at my watch dial than the movie screen.

While the story did have brief flashes of brillance in some of the dialog pertaining to life philosophies, they were few and far between. Dylan McDermott, always a good actor, absolutely flubs here. Sarah Jessica Parker, never one of my favorite actresses, looks so bad in this film to me that I was afraid my eyes were going to bleed... I guess I couldn't look away every time she was on the screen for that reason. Jean Tripplehorn's attempts at physical comedy left me gasping. Everytime she was hit with something or knocked down or fell, I wanted to jump into the movie and yell at the director (or call PETA) for torturing this poor woman that way. At least Jennifer Aniston and Ken Olin had the good sense to save their careers by appearing only briefly in minor supporting roles.

The self-angsting dialogue on "thirtysomething" worked incredibly well and bonded you to the characters. In this movie, listening to the characters bemoan their life circumstances you finally say, "Enough is enough!" and hope they all get hit by a bus so they stop talking. The plot flows along very disjointedly and at a very slow pace. I felt no chemistry between the two main characters, who are destined to meet and fall in love. The finale takes a sudden awkward jump a few years later when the couple are married and putting their child to bed. How the plot/premise went from "A" to "B" (how this couple fell in love and decided to make a life commitment) was left unanswered by the film and made the ending very unsatisifying, disappointing, and unbelievable.

Whoever the hair stylist was for this film should never work again. Mr. McDermott has a great head of hair. His greased look in this film- not a "successful architect style", that's for sure- terrible and very distracting! Ms. Parker's hair style?? My nightmares as a 5 year old were not as scary as this disaster on her head!

In all fairness, I will say some one good thing about this film. The cinematography is wonderful, especially around the apartment complex. You always see this dust, fuzz, or pussy willow type stuff floating in the air in the building's courtyard. I'm still trying to figure out the symbolism intended by the director of this effect. There are quite a few recognizable name actors in this film, but remember "Mars Attacks"? The film is such a flub, it is one of those movies you will want to watch more than once because the acting and dialogue are so bad.... like a horrible car wreck with blood, gore, and screams of agony- you can't take your eyes away! (heh heh) I always put this movie on when I'm in a masochistic mood and feel the need to be punished by Hollywood.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst movie I have ever seen
This movie is stunningly bad. It is hard to say which is worse: the plot, the screenplay, or the acting. If I had to pick, it would be the acting. Dylan McDermott as an architect? If you believe that, you would believe Keenau Reeves as a brain surgeon. And if you wonder why the fake-Sandra Bullock lead female hasn't become a household name, well, wonder no more. She is awful. The fact that there are some good reviews of this movie only proves that there are some people who like every movie, no matter how bad it is. It is bad beyond belief. The other reviewer is right, that even Sarah Parker is rendered into something awful by the director. You know how some movies "transport" you into another world? Well, this one transports you into an awful world of dismal movies that should not have been made. There is nothing redeeming about this film. Save yourself two hours by avoiding it.

1-0 out of 5 stars YUCK
There are so many things wrong with this movie it is hard to know where to start. The sub-plot where the characters are attempting to preserve the historic apartment complex is resolved in the most unsatisfying way possible. The heroine's parents' story is also cringe worthy. The movie seems to be both promoting and simultaneously mocking the notion of a "one true love" that makes everything else meaningless. It does not pull it off and instead seems merely ridiculous. Run if you see this movie coming! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Waiting for a Complete Release
My-So Called Life is a captivating bit of teenage nostalgia. It wears well after repeated viewings and DVD is a great format for compulsive watching of favorite episodes. I recorded the series originally on VHS and am ready to get a longer-lasting set on DVD. But, I'm NOT too enthusiastic about getting three episodes at a time. There were only 19 episodes, so could the folks at BMG just release it as one set, please! As soon as the complete set is released, I'll pick it up.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST TV SHOW EVER
I really love this show, and I wish that it would have stayed on much longer. Claire Danes was brilliant in every episode, showing promise as an actress that she has yet to deliver on elsewhere. A.J. Langer was memorable, as was everybody else. Each and every episode stands on its own as a 45 minute movie, particularly the first few which set the tone so well. Not until "Freaks and Geeks" did any other show understand what it was like to be young and get it so perfecftly right in their depiction (though "Freaks and Geeks" didn't do nearly as well as "My So Called Life"). The shows are entertaining, comical, heart-string-tugging, and sometimes profound in their implications.There have been few shows on television that even aspired to the this level, much less reached it. "My So Called Life" is historic and unmatched.

I must admit that much of my motivation in recommending this DVD so highly is purely personal. I bought my copy long ago, just after it came out, and I've been anxiously awaiting further DVD's in the series. To this point I've been disappointed, but I think that if enough people buy this DVD, then perhaps the company will figure out what a hot property they have and release more episodes. Please don't wait for te release of a full boxed set, because if you do there probably won't be one. Follow your heart and buy this. You know you want it. Come on.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this show!!!! (by Ashley)
I watch this show on The-N (they play re-runs at 11p.m. Monday
through Thursday , and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8:30,
10:30 and 12:30 at night), and at first when I saw the commercials for it I thought it would be a stupid drama series.
Boy, was I wrong! The first episode I saw was "Dancing in the Dark", and the minute I started watching, I was hooked!!!!!!

I love the entire cast of that show ---especially Rayanne (A.J. Langer), and I was dissapointed when I found that they cancelled
the show in 1995. I was only 2 1/2 when they started airing the
show, and I really wish I was the age I am now so I could see
the show when it first aired. I was acting a little retarded when I
thought the show was gonna be stupid when I saw the commercials for it on The-N... I didn't even watch it or anything (yet!:))!!!

I can't believe it was cancelled. I mean, to me and all the fans of this show, My So-Called Life is like a drug (a good kind;))
because you get hooked or addicted----whatever you want to call it!!! It has its good moments, its bad moments, its sad and dramatic moments, its moving ones, its funny ones....IT'S DRAMA!!! This is my #2 favorite drama series (#1 is Degrassi). I
don't think there is any possible way it could get better!!!!!
Buy as many videos or DVDs as you can---I HIGHLY recommend it!!!
If you don't usually watch this show, catch it on The-N!!! I truly guaruntee you will be hooked!!!!!!!
Hope this helps!!!!! Ashley ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars One of it's Kind
This is one of those rare genius', smart TV Shows out there. I just recently discovered 'My So-Called Life' last year while flicking through cable and saw A.J Langer as Rayanne, who is one of my all time favourite actors. I then saw Clare Danes come onto the screen (who I'v always liked), and then I saw Jared Leto, while the time I was thinking ''What is this show'', I couldn't help but notice and be impressed by the humour of it and the true honesty of it. Watching Clare Danes as Angela Chase and her questioning of things and the humour of Rayanne, I really felt that I had stumbled onto something special and unique. Now I'm really femiliar with the show and a definite fan, I have yet to buy this on DVD but I can't wait to be the proud owner of this fine, witty, wonderful show.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't own this, but the complete set
The complete set is available on DVD through this site as well as others. So stop complaining.

Good show. DO NOT order through Another Universe, it is not worth the hassle. It is no longer exclusive to them, so you have a choice. Buy it now. It's up to you. Just don't buy from AU. You have been warned.

2-0 out of 5 stars the end of a great show
Season 5 of the West Wing marked the end of Aaron Sorkin as a writer and Tommy Shlamme as a producer of the show. This season suffers greatly from the change.The show used to be about the day to day workings inside a fictional White House.This season is all about dealing with crisis, from the resulution of the kidnapping of Zoey to the death of of a long time character, to the shutting down of the federal government.etc. etc.While some of these storylines were entertaining and some downright awful(documentary ep.), it wasn't the least bit believable and seemed very similar to all the other dramas on network tv.This is clearly the weakest season of once great show, they got things going in the right direction again during season 6, but the glory days are behind us unfortunatly.

5-0 out of 5 stars West Wing Season 5
Being from the UK I already own this DVD,
We do get them earlier than the US does, on average it's about 6 months earlier, however the US versions get extras when they are released, whereas the UK and other parts of the worlds versions do not get any.(Also ours tend to be about twice as expensive!)
So it's a tough decision wether to get it early without extras or wait and get them.

As far as the season goes, sure it is different from the first four, it was always going to be after Aaron Sorkin left.
The season opener is fantastic, the piece of music at the end will give you that same feeling as any of the best moments of the last four years.

Over all that are some great moments in this season; there are some weak moments too, but this is still the best written, best acted, witty, intelligent and engrossing piece of television around at the moment. (Oh yeah, the moment with big bird is hilarious)

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazon UK has it!!!
Why is it that Amazon UK has already released this title but Amazon US hasn't???

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth it!
In my opinion, this season was really the end of the decent episodes of west wing. Shortly after the first few, aaron Sorkan left, and WW has spiraled downword until it has reached the point that it has for season 8. I would love to get the 5th season, especally for the beginning where Bartlet's daughter was kidnapped (well the conclution from the cliffhanger season 4)
I and many more West Wing fans agree. We would love to see this season on DVD in the near future.

5-0 out of 5 stars best tv seris.!!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best ever
Bereft of any promotion, Huff crept unnoticed into the UK, via a new and little known satellite channel called FX. I took a gamble and was spellbound from Episode 1. Emotionally it's an extreme experience. I can't think of a series so capable of generating side-splitting laughter one minute and under-the-cushion tension the next - not forgetting all-too-frequent bouts of genuine tears. To achieve this in a cynical, stiff-upper-lip English household is no small achievement. Typically, from this UK perspective - much U.S. material is either heavy-handed with sentiment or transparently hesitant when it comes to controversial issues. Huff is not. Beautiful writing, incredible characterisation, tremendous acting, Huff is a work of genius on the part of everyone involved. I shall be buying the DVD set of Series One for my friends and I can't wait for a Series II. I just wish Russell was for real and my best friend. But then - fortunately - I have a son more than a little like Bird....

5-0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Entertainment
Huff was so enjoyable. Every episode was packed with mystery, fun, human emotions and mishaps and being in the field of therapy, I could relate to and deeply feel all of the characters' angst. The acting was superb. It was a slice of life!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best show on TV since 'Six Feet Under"
Much as HBO's The Sopranos, Showtime's HUFF shows us as much about the
interior lives of its characters as it does their exterior relationships and

Azaria is brilliant as a well-known, highly paid psychiatrist whose practice
overlaps into his family's life in countless ways, often at the expense of
his own interior self-expression (except through fleeting appearances of a
phantom character) and his family's safety and security. The rational
approach he has to display at all times almost becomes his downfall.

Oliver Platt and Blythe Danner practically steal the show because they're
both great actors and they've both been given off-the-wall, fascinating,
likeable characters.Platt and Danner provide some of the funniest moments.
Swoozie Kurtz guest stars as the mother of Huff's wife, and is compelling in
her struggle with cancer.

Drama, marital conflict, mother/son problems, unmet needs, occasional
frightening violence, drugs, teen sex, kids acting more mature sometimes
than their parents:HUFF has it all.And it's relieved by quirky,
sometimes laughing-out-loud comedic moments.As well as the consistent
solid acting and interesting story lines.

I'm not sure I can wait a year to see what happens next.The last episode
left me on the edge of my chair.

Frankly, I signed up with Showtime so I could get the Sundance Channel.
But, I'd keep subscribing just to catch HUFF. ... Read more
