All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8)

Muddled, plodding, unengaging -- this had no perspective other than the obvious one (men are pigs), or a plot much beyond suddenly-single-mom-gets-back-in-workplace.

If, like me, your formative years developed within you an ability to sit and watch and re-watch Alicia Silverstone do just about anything, you'll welcome her return to the spotlight

An unsatisfying, lackluster vehicle for three performers who deserve more.

There wasn't anything that was incredibly weird or boring about the show. I was entertained. I wouldn't say that I laughed out loud at any parts.

While the show held strong in keeping the period piece aspect intact, I'm not sure how strong they were depicting each woman in a satisfying way.

For those missing their once weekly dose of Mad Men or Desperate Housewives.
