HUNG "Don’t Give Up On Detroit; Hung Like A Horse" Season 3 Episode 1 – So straight out, as I am the new Hung reviewer: I loved the first season of Hung, and was slightly less enthusiastic about the second season. Here are my thoughts on the main players:
Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane): While charismatic enough to command the lead, this isn’t a role that requires Jane to do a lot more than stay in shape, continue to look like a J.C.
