    I got around to watching this show finally and it was pretty disappointing. I echo those who found it entertaining. I too was strangely enthralled by the show. But the writing is so soapy and ludicrous that I just couldn’t take anything seriously.

    And, I think I am the only one who found the ending particularly underwhelming. The premise of this show was really excellent but it completely failed in exploring it. They could have done so much better and with so much more nuance. All I saw was Reese Witherspoon shouting and Jennifer Aniston throwing temper tantrums. It was only Gubu Mbatha Raw and Karen Pitman’s acting that stuck with me. This is a high class misfire and could have been a more in in depth analysis of the what goes behind the synthesis of a toxic work environment. Not preachy monologues. The ending scene especially was not at all grounded in reality.

    I get that this is soapy entertainment but some of made no sense. Especially Hanna’s suicide?! Was Alex waiting for someone to die to realize the magnanimity of the problem? Her character switched at the very last moment.

    There was something about this show that seemed so artificial. I really hope they have some major revision for the next season and bring in some authenticity rather than some foolish histrionics. Again, I love the actors involved and I am really happy for Jen who broke out of her mold but I just couldn’t like this show.

    I follow bunch of the main cast on Instagram and they are definitely still filming . They are taking their sweet time filming. Everytime I think they are finished they post a set pic

    You basically summed up what I felt about the show.  It’s an expensive misfire, Reese giving the same one note performance,  Jen trying her best with an underwritten awful script,  Steve giving the worst performance of his career.  The boardroom scene – I can’t believe they shot that scene, watched it, edited it and actually thought that was something they could present on TV. Jen’s character splashing water on some producer, that to me was the lowest point of the show.  Dont even get me started on Hanna the black women having to die for the white lead to finally have a social reawakening. With the 300 million spent on that show,  they could have hired better writers.
