Network: TNT
Starring: Niecy Nash, Karrueche Tran, Carrie Preston

Who was expecting Claws to be as awesome as it ended up being? Sure, Niecy Nash has been and forever will be a national treasure, but a black comedy/crime drama starring Nash, airing on TNT, with Karrueche Tran as one of the main characters? Oh, with Dean Norris’ insane portrayal of crime lord Uncle Daddy? All based in Florida? It probably shouldn’t work as well as it did, but with such a dynamic cast and a setting that allows for the ratchet meter to be turnt all the way to 11? Claws ended up being a sleeper that many should invest their time into before it returns for round two. —khal
