  • No one is more than skin-deep, so there‚Äôs little in the way of irony or metaphor to disguise the fact that Swingtown is so determined to be shocking it seems a little quaint. show more

  • Swingtown could have been great. Instead it's a hit-you-over-the-head production--with product placement and wardrobe so obvious it begs us to scream, "That's so authentic!"--best forgotten. show more
