I turned it on for Sally Field & will see where it leads
2 March 2020 | by JinFLSee all my reviews

I enjoy Sally Field and it has been awhile since I've seen her in a series, so I tuned in. It's different than anything I've seen recently, and at first I wasn't sure I'd like it. But, I kept watching and as more characters joined Peter, it became more intriguing. The four in this "family" are a diverse, quirky mix, but I think that will keep my interest. Yes, there is some social commentary with the characters, but isn't that life? I find people different from me intriguing and so I'll continue with this and see where it leads. Reviewers who lament they wasted their time seemed to be closed to new experiences. What would your response be if you were Peter?
