Articulate & Powerful

by Richard on 12/29/2006

An amazing series that I stumbled upon quite by accident as I gave it for a gift. I love the Six Feet Under series and this is right along that same vein. Excellent dialogue, amazingly good actors/actresses and a very cool story line. Now, if only Huff could have Tony Saprano as a client. HA~ Read More

The Best Show few people have ever seen

on 5/14/2007

HUFF is a brilliant story of two high paid professionals, one a psychiatrist and the other a lawyer both of whom lead the perfect life to the outside observer. In all actuality their lives are falling apart. The cast of Huff is superb and their portrayals of the characters bring the family to life. Please take the opportunity to see this series, and then beg Showtime to release the second season. Read More

Product Overview

Dr. Craig Huffstodt is a family man and a successful psychiatrist who gets a wake-up call when one of his patients, a 15-year-old boy, commits suicide during a therapy session. Huff's whole existence - as doctor, husband, father, son, brother and friend - goes through a dramatic reawakening as he begins to question who he is, what he's made of and how he fits in -- anywhere. Having always considered himself the eternal caretaker, whose mission is to save people, Huff suddenly realizes that he can't save everyone. The lines of reality start to blur as he goes from the functionally insane at the office to the daily insanities of life with his family at home. His nurturing nature is tested at nearly every turn and soon his so-called "normal" world and family life start to become as surreal as the world of his patients.

Editors Note

Huffstodt's life gets a sudden wakeup call, as he juggles his clinical insane patients and his occasionally crazy family.

Reviews
ReviewSource Home Theater Info DVD Review
Review Typical of Showtime they searched for and found the best possible cast. They really thought out of the box for the actors they got here. Hank Azaria was just about the last person I would have thought of for a role as complex as Huff. He is best known as the man of a thousand voices providing many of the voices for the animated series 'The Simpsons'. He also is frequently found supplying the voices for a plethora of animated features and was a regular on 'Mad About You' as the somewhat dim dog walker, Nat. this role permits this talented man to really stretch his acting muscles demonstrating a full understanding of what makes people tick. Paget Brewster plays perfectly off of Azaria's talent creating an amazing chemistry. Even when she threatens their marriage she is able to maintain a sympathetic bond with the audience.
