Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The what-will-happen-next tension that's at the heart of this show's storyline isn't enough to cover the show's flat emotional vibe. Gypsy's Dr. Jean Holloway is the most common sociopathic character. On the surface, she's a perfectly appropriate, dressing-on-the-side kind of woman, wife, mom, and professional. But the deep, dark reality of who she is seeps out after hours. The problem is, so what? There seems to be no conflict of conscience in Jean, no internal struggle in which she questions herself. She just goes full throttle into bad behavior with seemingly no regret. Why should viewers care about a sociopath who doesn't care about anything?
