Let me make one thing perfectly clear, Emily Perkins is my favourite actress and that is the sole reason for me watching this show. I wanted to look for more stuff with her in it tonight and it looks like I may have seen all her good stuff aside from the Supernatural episodes I have yet to see. Speaking as someone who generally doesn't watch sitcoms, this has got to be one of the worst sitcoms I have ever seen.
The plot of this is that a children's book author named Millie has anger outbursts that go extreme with everyday life. She decides to go to a "Life Coach" who really knows very little about psychology but she seems to think is helping her. Soon we are treated to her boss named... You know what I've only watched this 2 minutes ago and I already forgot, and her secretary Crystal, pretty much the Canadian take of Julie from The Brittas Empire.
Okay, the acting and writing - with the exception of Perkins making me smirk once (which considering the material is not easy) is all horrible. To give you an idea, these writers think it's funny to have Millie meet Stan's wife named Anna. Then she goes on a song singing nothing but "Stan and Anna" to the tunes of various songs... That's pretty much it, that's the comedy that takes up nearly a solid 2 minutes.
Can I also mention how I wanted the focus to be changed drastically. I mean we are following the Jar-Jar Binks of sitcom characters. The person we follow is the kind that due to being tossed out of a coffee shop for talking crap to someone who is in the process of making an order while there's a big line-up would pour gasoline over the coffee shop and burn it, maybe with everyone in it... You see what my problem with that is.
So I really would have liked this show a lot more if the focus may be changed to just the office. I know there are a few sitcoms that have already done that but, if handled well that could have worked. The comedy is awful, the acting is awful and the only redeeming trait aside from it being gross out humour as well as it has no laugh track would definitely have to be Emily Perkins' line delivery... What? She delivered a smirk from me - that's saying something with the writing on this show.
