Ugh, these people. I'm fine with anti-heroes, villains, unreliable narrators, what have you, but not having any of your three main characters even remotely likeable or rootable? Ugh.
The only one I find at all sympathetic is Beth, then she opens her mouth and says something or does something, and I remember she's just about sharing the misery.
Mr. Coach, when your wife tells you she feels "trapped" at home, and at home with her kid and at home with you, dump her ass. And, in this case, dump her ass, sell the house, lose the job, take your kid, leave town, and disappear. Because, this woman should be no one's wife or mother, coach, teacher, mentor, role model or friend. Just... let her and Sarge enjoy their second childhoods.
Style is definitely trumping substance at this point, and it's not even original style. I've only been sticking it out because I want to see what the big suspense-mystery-thing is gonna be, but, at this glacial pace, I'm beginning to doubt it will even get started let alone resolved by the end of the season. And they're not suckering me into a Season 2.
I haven't read the book, so I have no idea what direction this goes, but it looks to me like Beth is gearing up to set the Coach up for something. And, hey, I say more power to her. I hate these people and it might help Mr. Coach make a break for it. Coach was right about one thing: It was stupid of Addy to take Beth there, rather than Beth's house when Beth's mom is always upstairs and oblivious. I hate plots that can only move forward by having characters we're told are smart doing stupid things.
