New mother Audrey is having a hard time adjusting to motherhood. Exhausted, struggling to breastfeed and lacking support from her husband, her selfish and flighty mother, and friends who don't invite her out clubbing, she turns to a new mothers group. What she finds is a mixed bag of women and one man who are all in the same boat. Together they are united by their horror birth stories, sleepless nights and loss of identity. The letdown is a humorous yet truthful insight into new parenthood, a must watch that will make you reminisce and cry at the same time. Written by Jane James

Entertaining Show
1 July 2018 | by brigidamosSee all my reviews

I watched the first season recently, and will definitely continue when more appear on Netflix. I've never had children, and I imagine if I find The Letdown interesting and funny, that mothers must really get it. I plan to recommend it to my stepdaughter who has two little ones. My only complaint is the emphasis on atheism. I'm not sure if they are going somewhere with that, or if it's a bone to pick by the the writers, or perhaps it is just a way of inserting conflict. For me it makes the main character s bit less likeable, and otherwise I really do like her a lot. Other than that quibble, this show is cozy and human, and shines a light on the challenges of being a new mother.
