This show packs in serious nudity and sex to over compensate for the lack of murder and true ruthlessness. The title refers more to our animalistic sexual nature more than anything. If they can manage to squeeze in more crime and balance out all the raunchy sex scenes.....they may just have themselves a hit. Overall, it's a solid show with solid actors. It has a lot of potential.

i love the show and it is one of my 3 favorites between this, claws & queen of the south. but on all 3 it takes so long between seasons that when the next season starts i cant remember what was going on with the last season. also the seasons are not long enough, they are suppose to typically be 26 weeks like the old days when we watched 26 weeks of new shows and then 26 weeks of the shows reruns. i could always remember what was going on with the previous seasons this way. the only other thing i could say is that the show seems to be taped with to much bass levels in the sound cause its hard to hear what their saying a times ( a lot). i also hate the time slot cause its hard to schedule watching times with this and the house wives with not having a recorder device lololol PS have some naked scenes with smurf cause ellen is so hot, did you see her in "Siesta" .

Have watch this dysfunctional family since season 1 and it just gets better. Murder,Mayhem,betrayal and a twisted sort of affection between these siblings and there very overbearing mother to quote another famous movie "a boy's best friend is his mother..."
