I decided at the end of last season I was out because I don’t like these people (save Katherine & Theo) but I was flipping channels and stopped on this new episode. I watched about 50% and I still don’t like these people. They are selfish, self-involved and quite stupid.
Delilah, the supposedly sainted center of the friend group, is so completely unlikable I don’t understand what the writers are doing. I can’t stand Maggie and she and Gary are unenjoyable in their immature whininess. Eddie is a clueless idiot who wants his cake and ice cream and maybe some punch too. His wife, his kid, his lover, his new baby, his friend group - they should all be okay with him. I did like Rome and Regina but I’m pretty sure they’re about to be ruined.
I hated the lactation side story. Yes there are sucky ones out there but by and large they are good people who want to help. This felt like just one more chance to evoke sympathy for nasty D and have Maggie act like she did at the Christmas tree lot. You can stop someone harassing your friend without being a jerk Maggie. But these people are too self-absorbed to see anything but themselves and their own self-induced drama.
I can’t believe people say this show is relatable. Would any of us expect the wife who had been cheated on to stay part of the group the cheaters populate? Especially when they’ve made it pretty clear they prefer the cheaters? Are there truly friend groups out there so tight that they want the entire group to be at the hospital and part of the labor process? They hang around each other all the time. So much together. Good grief! I’m pretty extroverted but I feel the need to run to my room, lock the door, and relax with some alone time just from seeing this codependent mess.
