This is easily one of the best shows I have seen this year. It had me laughing and crying. It had great themes and an amazing plot. The ways in which it depicts mental illness and domestic violence are realistic and the ways in which it showed the feeling of being trapped and misunderstood in this situation where pure genius. This is a work of art and should be viewed by everyone.

Informative and inspirational

I absolutely love this series. It’s definitely hard hitting stuff and portrayed in such a raw way. There’s cursing, violence and touching on sensitive subjects (alcoholism, poverty, abuse, strained relationships) but not much sexual content. This show raises awareness of many issues and shows the importance of support and kindness. Well worth the watch!
