Episode 5 is the best, by far ...
29 October 2018 | by vanessaauletSee all my reviews

I actually really enjoy watching this show for as short as the season is (six episodes total). The most groundbreaking and resonating episode for me was episode five. This episode was so realistic with regard to the grieving of a dead parent, and I felt a very deep kinship with Joy and how she handled her grief, both in her adolescence as well as in her adulthood. And of course Toni Collette playing Joy is perfection -- but why wouldn't it be? I also wish I had had a therapist that was as concerned and inquisitive has Angela, one who actually listened and wanted to help. I really do hope they make a season two, because I have grown particularly fond of all of the characters, and writing and directing like this is worthy of a second season.
