Its a horrible show.
In terms of story, characters and so forth it's shit.

And from a pua perspective it's a load of horse shit. Teaches guys to be unreactive and passive. Hank literaly approaches NO ONE (from what Iv seen : which is just the first season)
This is such a social conditioning fantasy and I have no idea whether it is targeted at men or women.

Watch Entourage instead. 10 times better.

 ^^You have no clue what you're talking about guy. 

Hank Moody models all of the characteristics that the PU community says are attractive. That's why people like the show. No one ever claimed it was a show about being a PUA, approaching countless women, etc. Hank Moody is already a famous writer when the show starts and has inherent social proof because of that. The show is more about his struggles as a person. He must decide between two completely opposite lifestyles and often ends up hurting himself and all the people he truly cares for because of his moral choices. 

I stopped watching around the 4th season. I'll probably catch up one of these days when I have some time.

I didn't say anything about it being aimed at PUA. But this thread is in the Main Forum, not the off-topic. Judging by the shows content - it's a pretty straight forward subject for us to discuss.
Hank Moody is famous, he has written a bestseller once. Hank doesn't seem to have drive in life (not attractive). He just seems to be wandering around and women just starts taking their clothes off in front of him. To me it just feels like the producers want to show as many tits as possible within its runtime. Generate more teenage viewers or whatever. But what does this show teach these teenage viewers? Well, it teaches them to be unreactive and that the way you get women is through money and a by owning a Porche with a broken headlight (WOW! How deep. He is soooo artsy, sooo different from the rest of us) To me Hank is a pretty pathetic guy, he has no spark. His mood never changes, nor does his facial expression. Teenages get the impression that because he is good looking and rich he gets girls all over. Oh and btw. the whole being a famous writer and therefore he has social proof nonesense. He wrote a book which was adapted to film, and now he is just a rockstar? come on, as if girls have ever recognized a writer before. Let's go check out the box-office right now! Oh here's one: Silver Linings Playbook. and this is even an Oscar contender. It's based on a novel written by Matthew Quick. Do you seriously think him having written a novel that was adapted into a movie. Suddenly makes every women want his dick every time he walks into a revenue. Come on. This show is so far from reality. Who gets the women in real life? The people who takes action.

Now off with the pua glasses. Let's talk about the show in general.
Hank Moody has problems with the woman he loves. In every episode, we watch hunky Hank's suffering (he's an artist after all) and the women dying to steal a night (or 10 minutes?) from him. That's the whole plot. Hank is played by David Duchovny, who solidly proves that any signs he had shown about being a decent actor(on the X-Files) were totally coincidental. Here he has the acting abilities of an average tree. The whole Hank Moody character, in every aspect, is right out of some 14-year old's horny dreams. He has a cool-sounding job that does not require him to do anything, he is rich, and all the women are wet and hot for him. But please don't get me wrong: I don't mean that he is popular, or well-liked among women. I mean women are ready to open their legs for him the second they see him. Yes, even without foreplay. Doesn't this strike as porn to you as well? Every character is single sided, and the drama is almost none-existent. Nothing is at stake ever. Because Hank doesn't seem to give a shit about anything. The entire show reminds me more of a soap-opera and it basicly has the depth of a puddle.

To be entirely honest, while I like the show, I find the "pickups" he does utterly laughable and unrealistic. But again, this is a show for ENTERTAINMENT, not education.
