On a roundtable for comedy actresses put together by the magazine The Hollywood Reporter, Laura Dern commented her surprise regarding the journalist questions about the show. According to Dern, many of them emphasized the imperfect personality of her character, making the actress wonder if James Gandolfini or Larry David (stars of The Sopranos (1999) and Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000), also on HBO) were asked the same types of questions, considering their characters are praised for how flawed they are. Dern reveals that she just assumed the audience would be interested in seeing a female character whose strength and comicality came from her extreme behavior, and that she never got those questions when promoting independent movies, where she had played characters with similar traits.

This show was not advertised in the UK, so I stumbled on this by accident and I'm so glad that I did. It is up there as a favourite now.
This show reminds me of Nurse Jackie, another great show, where it allows you to judge whether you think the characters are right/wrong or good/bad - they are not telling you what to think of the characters.
The cast is also great, both Laura Dern and Diane Ladd are fantastic as usual. I'm so pleased they have chosen to do TV because in recent years films have not taken notice of their great talents. Luke Wilson is the best I've ever seen him act. I love the motley crew of people she works with - great acting all round.
Also a TV show where a person actually does a full time job without the job being the main premise of the show.
