A subversive, scathing look at a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm. Marty, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information they want.
Sounded better than it looked, but still somewhat interesting
The premise of the show was interesting - a well-endowed man using his 'gift' to make extra money when crisis strikes. I hoped it wouldn't be cheesy or clichéd, and thankfully, it wasn't, for the most part.
I guess some of the episodic plots were predictable - man getting used to service unattractive ladies, trying to keep his side job a secret, learning how to please the ladies as a job rather than to get into their pants. Maybe it's part of the selling point of the series, but I found some of the sex scenes too long - it's almost like the producers are using the sex scenes to fill up the time. I actually enjoyed the before/after-sex scenes better, when he's getting to know the women better.
For a series that's about a well-endowed man being a male prostitute, it is surprising that became another subplot rather than the main plot after a few episodes. The other subplots are are interesting - man's relationships with his ex-wife, pimp and children, children's troubles, pimp's relationships, etc, but except for the man's relationships, the rest take up more time than should be expected in a show that's about a part-time male prostitute. I started out rating this 7.5, after the first half of season 1, it has dropped to somewhere between 6 and 6.5.
Once all that is said however, it is still interesting enough to watch on a slow night. The comedic elements aren't many but they are funny; the acting is pretty good; and you get to wonder why all these beautiful, sexy women are paying big money to have sex with a man who isn't particularly handsome or fit in the first place.
