So empty. Nothing motivates you go further with it. Can't recall where I read that it was a Girls with middle aged voices, but please, don't do Lena Dunham like that.

meh; it’s a good background watch. very ‘current’ and mostly it works but when it doesn’t, it’s really obvious and a kinda lame. all the actors are adequate, other than one or two of the kids who come off like they’re just reading their lines from the pages lol. overall, nothing really happens, but most episode held my attention and i liked that the focus was on older women, which, sadly isn’t the norm. i’d watch a second season if it came out at a time where all my usual shows were on hiatus, probably.

[Netflix] Between the generational portrayal of female maturity and outright ridicule, the series is a scattered, chaotic compilation of stories that are sometimes hilarious, but generally random and implausible. The relationship with men is surprising, because it seems that the four characters are portrayed as strong women who are nevertheless always subdued, (Justine's and Anne's husbands or Elle's young son).

The story was intriguing but sadly the execution missed the mark. Ella is just a complete mess and [spoiler] tries to exploit her kids in the acting world for money and yet she can't keep a job to save her life. [/spoiler] Yasmin is incredibly whiny in one moment and the next she's a [spoiler] super intelligent 'secret agent' of some sort [/spoiler], but that did not get thrown into her storyline smoothly at all. Anne has a strange power relationship with her mom and also with her husband even though she could be successful on her own. And her husband [spoiler] lives off of her, has left her and she still doesn't want to lose him [/spoiler]....she seems like a strong character but she's probably the weakest. Justine is kind of the saving grace - I like how she's dedicated to her job and her family. Though her husband is [spoiler] emerging as a huge narcissist and constantly degrades American culture and bullies Justine....so she also seems strong but lets her husband walk all over her and still complain that he's 'not a man' because he's not working and says she should be home more instead of working so much...[/spoiler] There is so much hypocrisy in the show. I'm on episode 9 of the 1st season, and I will finish it, but each episode gets worse and worse. It had great potential. Pity.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
