This show IS different. Finally :-)................
Its about a 40yr old woman. She is not very smart, but she thinks she is, she wants to do great things, but she can't because she can't really understand why things are repeatedly going wrong around her (though we the audience can see). And most of the time its because of her dumb actions, and she just can't see it right then.

She is having a mid life crisis and she is trying her very best to live.

I have now seen till s1e6. Each episode focuses on a different story and there is a sort of moral at the end of it. The beauty of it is that its not condescending or trying to push it down our throat. Its always trying to give us both sides of the picture.

If you are giving it a try, please try it for a few episodes. I too was not convinced in the beginning few episodes, but now I have grown into it.

Its just 21mins long but there is a continuous tension in the story. There is nothing dangerous/thriller like happening, yet it is! The writing and direction should be applauded.

For now I give it a 8/10.

Though I think it deserves more, as it makes me think and look at myself, and how many shows have that ability??

Give it a spin and tell us you what you think.

Cheers :-).............
