What’s it about
This show flew under my radar for years. I discovered it only a few months ago when reruns began on TBS. I wanted to watch it from the beginning, and Amazon Prime is the best way to do that. The show may not be for everyone. If you are looking for something warm and sugary, go over to the Hallmark channel. If you want to laugh your ass off watching articulate characters dealing with real life problems in hilarious ways, this show is for you. Anna Faris and Emmy winner Allison Janney star in this pulls-no-punches comedy from Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly). Faris plays Christy, a single mom valiantly trying to overcome a lifetime of questionable choices. Now a year clean and sober, she¡¯s tested daily by her newly sober mom, Bonnie (Janney). Complicating things further is Christy¡¯s 17-year-old daughter, Violet, and young son, Roscoe. Violet has followed in both her mother and grandmother¡¯s footsteps by getting pregnant at a very young age. At first determined to keep the baby, Violet eventually decides to give her baby up for adoption. Throughout, Christy tries to remain positive and build a better life for herself and her family.
