Review of Hap and Leonard

60 minutes

'Hap and Leonard' centers on friends Hap Collins, a white working-class ex-con played by James Purefoy, and Leonard Pine, an openly gay, black Vietnam vet with anger issues played by Michael Kenneth Williams. Together, the duo fight to stay on the right side of the law in 1980s East Texas.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This is a show about contrasts. The two main characters epitomize these contrasts:
Black and white, a Viet Nam vet and a conscientious objector, a man who acts first and a man who thinks of possibilities, an openly gay man and a man who loves a woman, a man who has turned inward and a man who is open to the world.
We are now into season 2 and the show still has great writing, great acting and relevance in today's world.
I highly recommend it as I highly recommend the Joe R Lonsdale novels of the same name.
