Need a fix from the hole that was left when Breaking Bad aired its final episode? Well, look no more. Claws, this little gem from TNT will fill that hole and then some. Meet Desna Simms (played flawlessly by Niecy Nash), the baddest bitch from Florida and her motley crew of nail technicians that will grab you from the get go and never let go. The shows are explosive, highly addictive and (not so clean) fun! There’s drugs, money laundering, there’s infidelity, there’s heart, there’s Roller and there’s Uncle Daddy. It’s pure escapism at its best with 5 strong multi racial (black, white, hispanic and asian) female characters who will take you for a ride with the pedal to the metal on a one way street to pure television joy. I dare you to watch one episode and stop. You won’t be able to because if you appreciate smart, witty writing that’s laced with tension, drama, sex and comedy this is the show for you. It even has a character dealing with Asperger’s Syndrome that is honestly played by Harold Perrineau (from Lost, Oz). There’s something for everyone. So, dim the lights pass the popcorn and pump up the volume and get lost in the magic that is Claws.
