Great entire series! Similar to "In Treatment"... follows the personal and inner life of a career psychiatrist. Extremely well done.

This show can be watched multiple times, & it just gets better & better. & I found season 2 on Amazon that ties everything up pretty nicely. I can't understand why they cancelled this show. Deep, funny, profoundly sad, & magical, & the ending, I promise will both surprise you & knock u to your knees. FABULOUS series.

This show starts off a little slow but really gets going at about episode 4. Great characters and Blythe Danner is fabulous as the matriarch.

"Whenever people talk about the great shows pay cable has to offer, they always talk about HBO. Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, Deadwood... Showtime never gets a mention, despite such great and innovative programs such as Dead Like Me, Jeremiah and now: Huff.
With Huff, like all their shows, Showtime manages to make a show with conflicted, real characters without resorting to graphic sex or violence. The language is still as harsh as ever, but it's nothing you probably wouldn't hear in the course of a day if you were in these situations.
Even if HBO gets all the press for their sex and violence, Showtime has another winner with Huff. Great stories, wonderfully real characters who - gasp! - make mistakes, amazing acting... Craig Huffstodt and Hank Azaria are two different people who happen to look and sound a lot alike, I must say. Paget Brewster is completely believable as the harried housewife and who would have thought Blythe Danner could be unlikeable?!
Give this show a chance. The storylines don't resolve at the end of one episode, the characters strike realistically and behave much as you'd expect while you're hoping and praying they won't be that self-destructive.
And hey, Bob Saget plays a drug-addicted former sitcom star in one episode. It's almost worth the price of the set alone. ;-D"
Simply the best

"This and Weeds are the most entertaining shows on television. Hank Azaria is just incredible and the only person who could play Huff. Oliver Platt is an absolute comic genius and I am madly in love with him. He is in a class by himself and deserves his own 5 stars. The way the whole family interacts is so fascinating and complicated and keeps me wanting more. I have watched the whole first season again just because I can't get enough!!! Bring on season 2."
Best Show on TV at a great price

"I love Sopranos, Six Feet, etc., but I consider "Huff" the best show on television. Hank Azaria is great as usual, but the performances given by Blythe Danner and Oliver Platt are superlative, both deserving of "Best Supporting" Emmys.
With the price set at $25 (with a $25 rebate if you subscribe to Shotime), the DVD set is a great way to get acquainted with "Huff."
