Kind Of a Mess
I started watching this Lifetime show because I typically like Lili Taylor and Amy Bloom, but the resulting show is kind of a mess. Think Grey's Anatomy in a psychiatry office. There are too many central characters and not enough focus on any particular one. Lili Taylor's character's story lines tend to be the most consistently featured, but that's the only reason to call her the central character. Otherwise the characters' stories seem pretty random and stereotypically "quirky." There needs to be more focus on one particular character, and some trimming of some of the other characters' story lines. I hope that someone--whether Amy Bloom or some network executive--can get a hold on the reins of the show before it goes down the tubes.
