We finished S1. WOW. What a doozy.

Spoiler: show
Loved how they dealt with Frankie's being transgender. No big revelation, no dramatic music, just Sam too busy to notice the major change going on in her child's life; Max calling it to her attention; Sam kind of going "holy shit, that makes sense." Then just crawling into bed with Frankie and giving her/him(?)* an embrace. Hit me hard, that sequence


*I'm not sure how I'm supposed to refer to someone who was assigned a female gender at birth, and seems to be transitioning, but hasn't made any new gender proclamations yet. Apologies if I've mishandled this.

I would have gone with them.

I have this on my To Watch list, I love Pamela Adlon and have heard nothing but stellar things.

a spoiler for later seasons but Frankie isn't transgender anymore.


I've been watching this for years, I'm surprised no one ever made a thread about it. Pamela Adlon is hilarious.

I'm about to watch the new episode actually.
