Deserving of all those nominations...
6 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was not familiar with this comedy series. I had never even heard of it until I found it on Hulu. From reading the IMDb entry, I see that there were quite a few nominations for this series and its actors. Well deserved, I'd say!

It does take two or three episodes for the series to feel like all the pieces come together - but then they really do, wonderfully.

It's distracting while you are learning the premises of the story that the actors are so accomplished and talented. I did not know that Melissa McCarthy had this regular gig on TV, for example. Jennifer Esposito has always been one of my favorite comedic actresses, as well as Christina Applegate. Jean Smart surprised me in her role here. She plays characters who are usually a little more flamboyant and playing Sam's mother, she has dialed it back a notch. To great effect.

I laughed a lot watching this series, once I was hooked. When every episode has at least one quotable humorous line, I count that as a successful TV comedy. This series has that.

The series has held up very well over time. I recommend binge- watching with a martini (you'll feel right at home drinking along with the characters).
