Great writing and superb acting
18 March 2015 | by george-744See all my reviews

This is a great show. The writers do a great job of keeping the show from being predictable. The characters are unique and the attention to their individual dialogue is second to none. I love each of the characters they have developed, as they weave their way through the most interesting story lines. Just exceptional writing. Humorous, yet real. Fun, but never juvenile. And the acting? Second to none. Never over the top, always real and tangible and on character. Can not say enough about the lead actress. And so great to see such a strong feminine and yet humanly imperfect role model. The only issue I have is that I blow through the seasons too fast because there is no way to stop watching it. Watch it, and fall in love with all the characters.
