Very Disappointing and Unfunny

It's trashy with fake laugh tracks. Starting from season 1 episode 4 to episode 15, the show is tolerable. Then it goes downhill again after S1E15. Despite this show being about sobriety, they normalise the drinking and drug taking for everyone in the show. There is so much hypocrisy in most character's behaviors and the consequences of the character's action are not shown on screen, so definitely no good role models here. Watch Brooklyn 99, Grace & Frankie, Friends, Gilmore Girls, Superstore etc. Do not recommend for anyone under 30 lol. Maybe older population will enjoy it.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Mom without Christy

I’m really enjoying Mom without Christy. Really wish they would not cancel the show in the spring!
