I believe I read someone describe it as a cross between Steinbeck and "Freaks." That was pretty much dead on! We enjoyed it immensely. I'm still amazed at how consistently the creative minds at HBO come up with something different and something interesting. And if you're old enough to remember, their string of original hits (in my memory anyway) dates all the way back to the old "First and 10" (I think that's what it was called anyway).
