I think that the potential issue with the character of Elbeth (which I like) is that we've really only seen her in small doses.

It remains to be seen how she would play in larger doses.

Yeah, I can potentially agree with you there.

Well, I just finished season 2 (my wife is still a few episodes behind), and wow - I am *so* glad we stuck with it. The writing has just gotten crazy good, and there's so much good acting. Definitely must-watch TV.

Thanks for all of your comments and encouragement

That's what I love about the show. The writing is so good and you will get to know what makes these characters tick. It's all the more impressive that it's done within the confines of "Network" TV, i.e., there's no need for cursing and gratuitous sex to make these characters work. Much harder to do than what we see on cable where they have little or no restraints.

I would say that was more of a catalyst than a premise.

Alicia's world is turned upside down: she's spent ~12 years out of the work force as a stay-at-home-mom. All of a sudden she's deciding whether to stay with her husband and wants the financial and emotional independence of going back to work.

I have been gradually watching this through Amazon Prime Instant Video. I got to the end of Season 4 on Sunday, and have grown to enjoy it more as time went on.

I felt like my timing was perfect as Season 5 became available on September 1, so I am now in Season 5.

Well, I'm all caught up, now. Without being spoilery, I'll say that I am *not* a fan of the concept described in the very last scene - I don't think it would happen, I don't think the person is even interested.

The only sucky part of the whole deal, though, is having to go to one episode per week. Binge watching can be very fulfilling
