Claws TNT HD June 11, 2017

Claws TNT HD June 11, 2017

I saw this on a Google Browse of new shows, really accidentally .. and, I set the DVR just to give it a look see .. it was not what I expected and it turned out, I really liked it .. and, there's Dean Norris to boot .. I'd recommend taking a look ..

Desna is an attractive woman who lives with her brother and owns a nail salon with her 3 best friends. Her and her crew are involved with the local drug gang by trafficking through the shop; Desi is also seeing Roller who is one of the drug king pin's main dealers. Things get complicated when a new associate is introduced and Roller doesn't follow through on his deal with paying Desna for her help with the drug organization.

From IMDB :: "Near perfect, very adult crime drama. This pilot spent not one minute BSing it's way to a surprising conclusion to set up what looks like a very rough ride of woman power. Previews made this look sassy,but it is much more. This looks like a sophisticated crime thriller.

Very well executed. Niece Nash (Scream)and Dean Noriis (Breaking Bad),along with Carrie Preston (True Blood) and others give difficult, really wonderful, believable performances with very adult material. "

I watched the preview last month and HATE it. Trashy people doing trashy things. Everything on this show has been done before and done better. TNT is trying to be "edgy" and failing miserably. a big One and Done for me.

Even Carrie Preston can't save this disaster.

It's raunchy, trashy, over the top and a real Dark Comedy .. .. I like me some raunchy trash ..

And, I can't be alone .. it's hitting 76/64% on Rotten Tomatoes .. and a 7.1 on IMDb

Give it time to crash and burn. I have been seeing the commercials for it for months, zero desire to check it out.

I think that the fact the show is really a Female based cast does likely pander to, er, females .. much like "Desperate Housewives" and maybe "Queen of the South" .. but I have to say, firmly within my own masculinity .. that I am really liking it, and, I'm not ashamed of admitting I like the two other shows I've mentioned ..

"Claws" is just over-the-top good in what it does .. however, it's obviously not for everyone ..

Dean Norris, I thought was always excellent as Hank in "Breaking Bad" .. then, with "Under the Dome", he was barely watchable .. in "Claws", he's just plain out there .. in a very weird way .. I don't know if he's playing it for laughs or trying to be serious .. I think he's playing it for laughs, which just adds to the Dark Comedy of the show ..

Second Episode was every bit as good as the first .. thumbs up ..

I'll add :: The fact that the show looks to take place within a "Nail Shop" is slightly misleading .. the shop is merely the vehicle that binds the cast and not an overwhelming part of the show .. which is a good thing ..

I'm with you, Uncle Willie. We've really enjoyed the 1st 2 episodes. Never thought I'd like Niecy Nash in anything but she really shines here.

Dean Norris and his wife on the show really play it way over the top, close to laughable .. I think the rest of the cast does a great job .. the thing really is a dark comedy .. I like it a lot ..

Lucky us...we're getting a second season. And agreed: Dean Norris as Uncle Daddy is a hoot.

The side story of Roller and the Pubic Hair artist was funny .. I honestly look forward to each weeks episode of wackiness .. the Writers have got some imagination ..
