    solo es propaganda en contra de la familia a favor de la ideología de genero y el aborto. Todas las banderas que están matando el centro de europa, como siempre Australia, el inodoro de inglaterra reproduciendo mierda.

    Alison Bell serves us a refreshing Australian-comedy with a hint of awkward parent energy. The Letdown perfectly depicts the lives of those others whom aren't quite on top of things. This piece definitely gave me some good laughs. And a taste of parenthood. It's a must watch!

    Fantastic series that presents an honest and hilarious take on new motherhood. Can't wait for second season!

    Amazing what passes for entertainment these days. Sad to see that the nuttiness has spread to even Australia.
  • May 01, 2018
    Only watched first two episodes. this is really well done, but as a new mom it's rough to watch. A little too close to home and raw, with not quite enough on the comedy side, or even really showing the sweet elements of motherhood. IT made me sad vs. entertained or relieved. :/

    Very accurate depiction of being a new mom.
