If you like bold, outrageous, and unrestrained television, TNT’s newest offering, Claws, is the show for you. The always watchable, Niecy Nash heads the  diverse cast, Ms. Nash portrays Desna, a wildly ambitious, upwardly mobile nail-salon owner whose thug boyfriend, Roller, gets her involved in money laundering for the Dixie Mafia. Desna, who dreams of owning a premier nail shop, soon makes the grim discovery that getting involved with hoods is a lot easier than breaking away from them.

Producer Rashida Jones has assembled a terrific supporting cast including Jason Antoon as the nervous Dr. Brickman who rakes in a fortune by selling prescription drugs to the highest bidder, True Blood’s Carrie Preston as Polly, a mild-mannered manicuring felon who wears an ankle monitor. Jennifer Lyon portrays Jen, a brash Southern girl, Karrueche Tran as Virginia, a gold-digging hoochie mama who sets her sights on Roller.

Jack Kesy and Niecy Nash
Devious Maids veteran, Judy Reyes, portrays Quiet Ann, the baseball bat wielding muscle in the group, while hunk Jack Kesy is picture perfect as the libidinous, ultra-violent Roller, and the amazing Dean Norris of Breaking Bad fame as Uncle Daddy, Mafia-don Southern style. Norris has the time of his life playing Uncle Daddy, a murderous bisexual gangster who manages to blend his unrepentant brutality with his devotion to Catholicism.

While Claws is still rough around the edges and so over-the-top that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is worth a viewing if only to see Dean Norris in action.
