Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Follows a best-selling author of a self-help book series who is secretly hiding her separation from her husband as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in her 40s in Los Angeles. She starts to side with and take advice more from her divorced friends rather than her married ones, and it leads her to some unexpected and life-changing experiences. Written by
I wondered why Bravo pushed this show so hard before it debuted. I have tried watching it since the first episode. It is difficult to stay interested for the long haul. First of all, I think the casting is weak, especially Lisa Edelstein's character, Abby. I don't think she was a good choice to play the main character. She can't carry the show, and from there it just gets worse. I don't like any of the characters. I don't love or hate any of them, and that's the problem. I'm indifferent. It's like watching paint dry. I'll blame it on the script and the writing. I've seen these actors in other things, and it's not their acting ability that is in question. All I can say is that it did not live up to all the big hoopla. I casually watch for now, but don't care if I see another episode. I don't look forward to it, and certainly won't be invested for a second season. Sorry, but it's boring and mediocre at best.
