    10 part HBO MAX comedy based on the 2017 novel of the same name by Alissa Nutting staring Cristin Milioti, Billy Magnussen and Ray Romano
    Premiered April 1st

    From Wiki:
    A woman escapes from a suffocating 10-year marriage to a tech billionaire, but discovers her husband had her fitted with a high tech tracking device. The monitoring device, which he implanted in her brain, allows him to track her location, watch her live, and know her "emotional data" as she tries to regain her independence.

    I've watched all six available episodes and I'm not sure what to say about this show. First, Cristin Milioti is amazing as always. Ray Romano is also fantastic. There is a lot here to like. But I feel like even after six episodes the show is still wandering around a little bit and there are only two left!

    I'm completely in for the rest of them, don't get me wrong. It just feels like we should be further along than we are.

    Is it 8 episodes? I thought it was at first (Wiki lists 8 (7 & 8 Apr 15th) but then I read on Wiki that 10 were ordered)

    I dunno; what I've seen so far says 8 but it's just internet hearsay. I guess we'll find out!

    I think it's pretty good, but not great. The tech billionaire reminds of the character who owned Hooli on Silicon Valley, just a self absorbed jerk. Ray Romano is creepy and I love it!

    It's interesting that when these tech comedies do Google clones, they give them owners who are narcissistic jerks. :D

    Watched the first couple Eps this weekend. Some funny moments, high production values, strong actors. We'll ride this one 'til the end.

    Love Ray Romano.

    I watched four as I love Cristin Milioti. She was so good in Mythic quest and Pam Springs. But here, the story is not going anywhere. I'll keep going only for her.

    I thought the ending was abrupt. I wasn't sure if it really was over or another few episodes were left.
