In an industry rife with losers and perverts, three eager gigolos set up office together as the Callboys. They form the go-to escort collective for women in search of courteous, well-groomed and even better-endowed company. What the Callboys lack in wit, they make up for in testosterone, which gives rise to radical selfishness and fruitless energy, spent making things harder for themselves rather than simpler. As business booms, they start to fancy themselves businessmen. But once they decide to branch out by selling their own personalized, woefully over-engineered dildos, their fate is sealed. The 7 part black dramedy follows the comical exploits of the Callboys where bad management, petty arguments and deaf-mute ambition make their short-lived business crash and burn.

Funny, raw, honest emotion
17 October 2019 | by facebook-688-234620See all my reviews

This series revolves around a group of friends that are trying to make it big as male escorts, where each is a bit of an oddball but makes an effort to pull its weight.

While they try to make it happen, their lapse in judgement creates situations for them to overcome. Yet they never fail in enthusiasm to resolve and show a deep loyalty. You will love to hate them you'll love to love them as well.

This series is surprisingly sensible, well written and isn't afraid to tap into deeper emotions which will hit you unexpected. With the right balance between tension, hilarity but also wholesomeness.

Once you reach the second seasons' final, be sure to have some tissue around. Because it's real as it can get.
