    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.

    Yeah it was originally listed as a dramedy so I figured there was some levity there.

    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.

    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.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    Maid looks set for being The Underground Railroad 2.0 in terms of buzz and all-in-one bomb.

    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!

    Random as hell, but Hideo Kojima (the Steven Spielberg of videogames) is loving the show: https://mobile.twitter.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/1444120131164983297

    I have so many shows to watch it will take forever for me to finish it, but I’m glad it’s being praised

    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.

    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.

    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.
