I didn't love the first ep but I'm still watching, so...
Interesting... The first three posts, reminiscent of Goldilocks and the Three Bears...
The show is good, but could be so much better.
Three episodes in I have to think its going to get better. I really like this show. Its a must watch for us.
This is how I see it. Some of the stuff they do make little sense in that no rational person would ever do things like that. But it's entertaining, and for now I'm in.
I agree with the show is good but could be so much better.
It hasn't lived up to the first episode. It works best for me when the girls are winning.
I guess there's little interest in this show and for good reason. I cancelled my SP after the last episode. I'll spoiler since this is NOT a season thread:
Spoiler: From supsequent episodes
The plot has gone completely off the rails. The scheme they came up with to "laudner the money" could never ever work. First of all, even the first time they did it would send up red flags to the company. People who buy high end stuff and return it would alert corporate. Then they buy like a dozen TVs at a time, or something like that. and return them, that's going to REALLY put up red flags, and THEN when they realize they were using fake money, cameras would spot them. It's SOOO unbelievably stupid. It's gotten beyond entertaining (and I usually let a LOT of stupid stuff go). Then the drug dealer seems to be able to break into their house at any time. The girls buy expensive stuff? I'd think the waitress who has the cop hubby would would be wondering. Anyway, I realized I was watching just for Christina Hendricks and Mae Whitman and I realized I just don't care anymore.
Anyone still watching?
I do, for the 3 leads--I continue wishing that the story was up to them. Who knows for how much longer.
I watched 2-3 weeks past where I should have because of the leads. But even they can't save this.
I'm still in. The plot is stupid, but the acting is great. There has been no sign of anyone realizing that this is fake money. As you said, not even close to reality.
Still watching, but low on my watch list. Suspended belief since Ep1 when they said that 10k each from what was supposed to be the only heist (from a store where one worked) was all they needed, even though the little girls pills cost $120,000 a year.
Also had/have low expectations since it has a "Men Bad, Women Good" theme, and it is NBC after all
Lazy plot with one husband being a cop, another being a lying cheater and the third wanting to sue for custody (but not paying child support?) and then with the FBI having them under surveillance.
Would be better as a 1/2 hr comedy.
I THINK it's supposed to be more Desperate Housewives than a serious crime drama, so i expect there to be some comedic aspects. I don't know why your expectations should be low based on Men Bad, Women Good? No reason why you can't write a very good script for that theme. Been done lots of times. But yeah, the plot, which started out as semi-plausible (although outside maybe of Meg Whtiman's character,) I can't picture any of them even pulling off the first robbery, even with their family woes. And then it got more and more implausible as it went along.
I really had high hopes for the show based on the previews I saw during the Olympics, but unfortunately, it hasn't lived up to them. I'll monitor here and other places to see if it gets better, but I doubt it. Based on the lack of threads (this being the S1E1 thread) leads me to believe nobody is that interested.
Yes to most of the negative reactions mentioned on this thread. On top of that, I haven't seen anyone say anything about the relationship between Rio and Beth. For a badass gangbanger he sure lets her get away with giving him lots of attitude. Maybe it's because he's attracted to her, or likes her "moxie", or is intrigued by these soccermoms getting involved in nefarious activities.
So, yeah, I'm still watching and enjoying the show, and not just for the 3 leads. I think the only subplot I don't like is the triangle between Annie and her ex-husband and his fiancee.
All these glaring holes may become too much at some point, but I'm not there yet.
It reminds me of Breaking Bad, but not as well written. The girls are definitely headed downhill, which is probably how it would go if you got yourself into stuff like this.
It's kind of ridiculous, but I cannot look away. I'm enjoying it. I am having a girl crush on Christina Hendricks. Sometimes she looks so stunningly beautiful it's just - WOW! So that's silly, but I enjoy the main players and the one spouse who was in Mike & Molly, as I find him charming and funny. ETA - Reno Wilson. LMAO at self that I did not remember his name (where I live + Wilson).
But it's hard to imagine where this can go. Will they continue getting away with weird stuff? Will they get busted? Then what? BTW, if you are going to do a crime, you don't invite a bunch more people in with you, thereby increasing the chance of word getting out. I feel like I want to kill off that one woman who figured them out and I'm not sure why. I immediately thought it was really stupid to bring in all those others to help with the money laundering. Don't be having people know where the bodies are buried, folks!
I tend to enjoy a variety that runs from higher brow to silly as hell, though.
Me three... I am enjoying it.
I still watch and enjoy it. I love the secretary/PI character. She's great.
