I couldn’t find a thread for this series, sorry if someone has already created one. Premieres October 1 on Netflix.
“Follows the story of Alex (Qualley), a single mother who turns to housecleaning to — barely — make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy. Seen through the emotional yet humorous lens of a desperate but determined woman, this series is a raw and inspiring exploration of a mother’s resilience.”

The reviews stated that it’s also hilarous at places. Relieved to hear that since I really hoped this is not too depressing.October 1, 2021 at 3:04 pm #1204497117
Premiered today on Netflix. It is at 82 on Metacritic and 100% on Rotten with a score of 8/10.October 1, 2021 at 3:06 pm #1204497119
Has anyone watched this yet ?October 1, 2021 at 3:24 pm #1204497148
Just speaking personally here, the ten hour long episode nature when I know this going to be a tough watch (even with talks of it being funny at times) is going to make this a tough one to get around to. I really find myself preferring the weekly rollout these days.October 1, 2021 at 3:30 pm #1204497162
I’m a bit busy at the moment and am behind on quite a few things (I don’t like to watch seven different shows at once haha) so it will be a while, hopefully a short one, before I get to this.

Maid looks set for being The Underground Railroad 2.0 in terms of buzz and all-in-one bomb.October 1, 2021 at 5:20 pm #1204497325
I will get to it eventually. But it’s just bad timing in release. I watch lot of things more than usual people and I am behind on things!October 1, 2021 at 7:23 pm #1204497403
Random as hell, but Hideo Kojima (the Steven Spielberg of videogames) is loving the show: https://mobile.twitter.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/1444120131164983297October 1, 2021 at 7:29 pm #1204497408
I have so many shows to watch it will take forever for me to finish it, but I’m glad it’s being praisedOctober 1, 2021 at 7:31 pm #1204497410
I watched two episodes. It’s definitely not as alienating as The Underground Railroad (although still pretty depressing). It’s similar to Juno/Lady Bird/Little Miss Sunshine (some comedy bits), with some serious Uncut Gems vibes (especially in raising your anxiety levels, with a lot of things happening at the same time).
Margaret Qualley really has an award winning performance here. And the Cinematography is beautiful.October 2, 2021 at 12:02 am #1204497574
I started watching it. It was filmed in Vancouver Island, a place very near and dear to my heart, so it looks amazing (also good cinematography!). Storywise it’s quite depressing so far- hopefully it’ll get less heavy with successive episodes. Margaret Qualley is amazing and her performance is the reason why this show works. Can’t wait to see more.October 2, 2021 at 9:14 am #1204498101
Margaret Qualley is one of the few young actors of today that I really like, so I’ll be sure to check this out soon since I know she’ll deliver!

Not so random! Qualley is one of the stars of Kojima’s latest video game, alongside Léa Seydoux and Norman Reedus.Not now
