I really like the western theme of this show. The special effects are great and love seeing the old Star Wars environment and themes. I found the series fun to watch and the action sequences were great. The whole series reminded me of the original Star Wars trilogy. The storyline is decent, the episodes seem short but I’m not complaining too much as I feel like most series these days have over hour episodes so it was nice seeing the shorter episodes. The end of season one was wrapped up nicely but left plenty of room to be continued, in which I will probably keep watching.
The show was set in the 90s and is a conflict between two mothers living two different lives. Elena played by Reese Witherspoon lives an entitled life that she seems to control. Mia played by Kerry Washington is a protective mother who tries to do the right thing. The show reminded me a lot like the show Big Little Lies which Reese Witherspoon also plays in with a character similar to Elena. The acting was wonderful, and they all seem to play their roles quite well. The story can be pretty emotional at times when they hit sensitive topics like abortion and class entitlement. The closer you got to the end of the series the more it grabbed you with the unexpected ending being very satisfying.
This show is about a “me too” incident involving a co-host and the power between the executives and the producers/hosts. It kind of shows you how the advertisement and the owners of the networks dictates what happens on the media. The “me too” aspect of this series I felt was pretty well-rounded between the female and male point of views. The show was very dynamic with complex emotions on all sides. The acting was amazing and the story was interesting.
