That’s good to hear. Jean Smart was on Fresh Air earlier in the week and I’ve been a fan of hers since Designing Women (she and Annie Potts were the best things about the show). It sounded like an interesting show and I was looking forward to it before your post. Now even moreso!

She’s amazing. I’m less enthusiastic about the young comedian character, she’s kind of annoying. But it’s intentional so we’ll see...

Dunno that this needs its own thread but we watched the first two episodes and it's fun. Jean Smart is so good.

HBO is still prestige television and as such this deserves its own thread!

It gets better with each episode. Nothing amazing, but the characters are getting fleshed out more and it’s got some good writing. Jean Smart owns every scene she’s in.

Yeah it's by far the best comedy on TV--I would say in the last decade, maybe?

Took a strong turn for the better over the last couple episodes. Hope they keep developing “the help.”
