Is It Any Good?

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

This funny, women-centered series highlights the feelings many women have when they realize they're getting older but haven't reached expected milestones. While Olivia struggles with not being in a relationship, and with the idea of potentially not bearing children due to her age, her sister and mother struggle with the challenges that come with having a partner, including having a baby, infidelity, and trying find independence once married life is over.

These are all heavy topics, but Sideswiped approaches them with lots of (adult) humor. Meanwhile, despite the disagreements among the three women, they remain close and supportive of each other. Some may find the idea that one has to be in a relationship to be happy tiresome, but the positive relationship the women have with each other is satisfying to watch. No doubt that many women of various ages will appreciate some of the hilarious turmoil featured here, especially when it comes to online dating, negotiating relationships, and accepting aging.
