Trivia

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 and Curb your enthusiasm, 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.

Strangely addicting
29 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

I read somewhere that this show was one of the best new shows of the year, so I started watching it on demand. I find it to be a very interesting mix of humor, drama, and intrigue. Laura Dern is great as an almost completely unpredictable person. It's almost scary to say that her character is like more than a few people I've met in my life.

This show covers work, home, friends, and life matters in a pretty realistic way. As in life, sometimes it's the verbal and sometimes it's the nonverbal communication that conveys the best message. The actors are doing a great job with the material, and I'm now on episode 7 and the show feels like it's getting even more interesting. I have to say, I'm pretty addicted to wanting to get to know these people more...and seeing where it all goes.
