Hap and Leonard is a Sundance Channel program. The pulp noir features James Purefoy (The Following) and Michael K. Williams (The Wire). Set in the late ’80’s, the two are asked to join a treasure hunt for money lost in a decades old bank robbery. Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Haps ex-wife, complicates things with the crew due to her moral view of the world and her past relationship with Hap (and Leonard). There are many twists and turns including a second pair of treasure hunters that cause a tremendous amount of chaos for both the general public and the main characters.
Hap and Leonard was a great binge (season 1 on Netflix). Although the story and characters are dead serious, there are comedic elements that, although dark, make the program fun to watch. Production value is fair to high with many elements of the 80’s are highlighted (maybe to much, Corningware Percolator).
I did enjoy and strongly recommend.
