Episodes are missing

This podcast sounds like it will be great, but it seems that other than the trailer (released on 4/1), there are no available episodes (as of 4/18/21) Not sure what’s going on as the summary doesn’t seem to provide any info on a release date.

Interesting idea but overdone in many ways

If I had to sum up this series in one word, I would say overdramatized. There is yelling and lots of it, and most of the conversations are the characters taking jabs at one another. Really? I don’t know of any families that are this extreme. It just feels unnecessarily angry in it’s tone. Also, it has a strong liberal platform. The society of insulation, or whatever they call it, is definitely a stab at conservatives. Fine, whatever, but boring. I just really lost interest because of all the yelling, unconvincing cursing (sounds like a bunch of teenagers trying to impress each other with their curse words), and just plain silliness. I’m sure someone can take this idea and actually do something interesting with it.

Episode 9 is Missing, Episode 10 played Twice

I was listening to the whole series today and was kind of lost as the series went from episode 8 to 9. Without spoilers something happens between the two characters that was not explained and we find one of them in a new setting. I was a bit confused thinking it was a jump forward and there would be an explanation but next thing I know the episode 9 I was listening to was then going through the credits even though there was supposed to be one more episode left. So when episode 10 began it was the same as the previous one. Looking at the summary of the episodes, I realized episode 9 was missing since those events did not happen and episode was 10 was on there twice. It's too bad that such a mistake was made because a big piece of the series between the two main characters was missing.

This is so stupid---I canceled my subscription

Very disappointed in the last few Audible originals. This was enough to tip me over the edge and cancel my subscription.
DO.NOT.BOTHER with this crap.

Yuck

Could not get past 1st episode. Nothing like a mother & daughter throwing around F-bombs. I actually like both ladies and understand getting a paycheck but why this?

So Much Fun

This podcast is so much fun. Literally binging the entire thing right now. Amazing cast and Zoey Deutch is such a star. The fact that Zoey and Lea Thompson are real life mother/daughter makes the whole thing even funnier.

Not funny

Good production and acting, but it was not fun listening to sad and angry people arguing and yelling at each other most of the time every episode. Attempts at humor is sprinkled throughout, but most jokes fall flat. I was expecting a comedy, but got a boring plot with boring characters.

Hilarious & engaging

This was hugely enjoyable fun, hope they follow it up with another series, I'd love to hear more. In short, I hope it comes back, in the future...

N.B. Lea Thompson is still hot stuff!
