Hi everyone. I’m not sure if there is already a Mom thread or not. I looked through 10 pages and did several searches and never did find one, so, here ya go.
I hate that Anna Faris has never gotten awards love for this show. I hate that this show never got awards love outside of (the always wonderful and worthy) Allison Janney.
Faris has had some wonderful dramatic turns this season, but still makes them funny. This past week’s episode (Jell-O Shots and the Truth About Santa) was just so heart-wrenching. It does bring her daughter Violet back into the picture. Violet does a podcast about how awful of a mother Christy was. It was funny but heartbreaking. Jaime Pressly and Mimi Kennedy have also had great episodes this season when telling about their characters’ losses.
Anyone else watching?November 19, 2018 at 11:50 am #1202678230
I’m watching, and still loving. I stand by what I’ve said before, “Mom” is the best comedy on network TV. The past two weeks have been excellent, and last week’s episode was one of its best.November 19, 2018 at 12:32 pm #1202678263
I genuinely believe this show is one of the best and most underrated comedies ever produced. Excusing a weaker first season, it is undoubtedly the most consistent show on television. Just my opinion of course but I wholeheartedly believe the show should have won Best Series (Season 4), Actress for Faris (Season 3) and Supporting Actress for Presley (Season 4).
This new season is no exception with the latest episode being one of my favourite comedy episodes of the year.
I’m so glad the show does well in the ratings because I need it to continue for years to come.November 19, 2018 at 2:29 pm #1202678327
I’m thinking/hoping that being in syndication now will help it’s ratings & profile even more.November 19, 2018 at 6:30 pm #1202678457
This season has been one of shows weakest . Still a very good show. The addition of Kristen Johnson was a genius idea. Hopefully she stays around longer. They had said she was only doing 3 episodes so I guess they decided to keep her around.
only complain I have , is that I wish Wendy got a storyline for once .December 13, 2018 at 12:12 pm #1202700424
Kristen Johnston has been an excellent addition, and the series should seriously make her a regular. She fits perfect on this show…she’s usually so outrageous–and still is mostly, but has definitely tamed it down.December 13, 2018 at 12:18 pm #1202700432
I love this show so much and I agree Kristen Johnston has been a great addition. I also have to echo the sentiment that Wendy needs a storyline stat! She’s hilarious!December 18, 2018 at 5:58 pm #1202705607
Does Kristen Johnston deserve Emmy consideration in Guest Actress in a Comedy?December 19, 2018 at 5:56 am #1202706005
They should make Kristen Johnston a series regular at this point. She fits into the show very well. At this point, I doubt she is guest eligible. She’s been in nearly every episode.
