Okay, so I must admit I started doubtful. The subject matter was turning me off (boy, do I *hate* "bully TV"), and lifetime... well, let's say I was envisioning the worst in TV.
But I saw good reviews, took a careful plunge, and wow. This is truly THE best show this year.
The characters are meaty, with thick back stories and deep, intricate personalities and relationships. Great cast - Appleby and Zimmer make a dynamite duo.
It's kinda like the anti "Newsroom", and still, almost as good :)
Really recommend it.
