    For those that have watched the entire thing, this is one of those shows with some re-watch potential, since they did sprinkle clues throughout the episodes.

    Once was enough:)

    It was ok, but the flashbacks of talking to the dead wore thin.

    You’re going to watch it again? On purpose? :)

    Since the talking to the dead and flashbacks to dad are alcohol related, then yes!

    I did watch part of two episodes since others in the household were watching it.

    I did actually like this show a bit, but it had a rough start.

    It seemed like every other phrase out of her mouth was "I'm sorry, I apologize." If we had played a drinking game with that as the trigger, we'd all be alcoholics now.

    Like I said, the show is a hot mess, but it's one of those "fun" shows which you spend as much time laughing at how silly it all is than the actual plot. But yet, you are still watching. Or maybe that's how I saw it. The thing that drove me crazy about this show was that it seemed when the main character drank, she seemed to aquire "superpowers" and can remember and plot things she couldn't when she was sober. Maybe when drunk she just got more brazen? I don't know. But I just couldn't stop watching.

    One thing I remember from college was that supposedly if you studied drunk you needed to take the test drunk, or your recall would be lower.

    Note that I did not intentionally test this theory.

    State-dependent memory.

    Also cited as a reason why women don't remember just how bad childbirth is until they're actually giving birth again. Another theory I haven't personally tested. :D

    It wasn't a TV classic, but I'll watch season two.

    While I was critical of the "talking to the dead" trope, I will likely watch S2. It was decent, and it did highlight some of Cuoco's previously unseen acting chops.

    I thought it was pretty good. I don't understand the extent of some of the animosity. During the talking to the dead guy parts I just didn't bother paying that close attention to it or multitasked. It's a show that didn't require a lot of intense concentration which is nice sometimes. You could have focused hard if you wanted to, as there were clues here and there along the way, but odds are you weren't going to completely resolve it anyway and at most just spoil the fun of the twist at the end.

    Pay close attention and don't multitask during the "talking to the dead" parts and you'll understand the animosity ;)


    (I did enjoy the show. One of the 2 "HBO Max only" shows I've watched so far, and it was way better than the other one :) )
