Hacks. What can you say about a show as wonderful as Hacks? It’s funny, it’s charming, it’s truthful, it’s touching, it’s dark comedic perfection. Jean Smart is the ultimate perfection as the struggling comedian Deborah Vance.
Hacks, season 1, just finished its run on HBO Max. Season 2 was approved just as season 1 ended. In Jean Smart’s long career we’ve seen her do everything, but she hasn’t often been the lead character. In Hacks she’s running the show and her performance is absolute gold.
