This TV miniseries tells the story of Elizabeth Harmon, a girl with an unusual gift that that catapults her into stardom while at the same starving her from real human connection. I liked the way in which gifted people and their social network are portrayed. It ultimately tells the story of the hidden wealth that lies within deep connections. While gifted people struggle with their own demons and think that they are unworthy of connection, people around them tend to see their gift as something desirable and even enviable without realizing that giftedness can be very isolating. Some people try to exploit the gift for their benefit and others turn green with envy for something that they can never have, barely understanding that having a peculiar mind also means seeing the world through a different lens, and thus living a very lonely existence.

The plot centers around Nadia, who seems like a typical New Yorker, working as a software developer, and living a life of excess. It's her 36th birthday, and while it would be normal for her to feel happy that her friends are throwing her a party, she seems quite disengaged. Something is not right from the beginning. Nadia starts off the night by bailing from her own party to spend the night with a stranger, only to end up dying... again and again. Click on the title to read the full review.
This is a Canadian television sitcom that follows a group of friends as they deal with the challenges of being working mothers. The story revolves around Kate and Anne (two best friends since college) who share a very strong bond, no bullshit between these two. They don't hold anything back and this is shown from the first episode as they stare at each other's bare chest and engage on a debate about the 'sogginess level' of their boobs after motherhood. 😀 The primary driver behind the humor is the indifference shown by society and partners, who have no idea of how hard it is to make it all work.

This show looks like a teenager sex ed animated comedy. However, the writing is peppered with layers of complexity. It has quickly grown to be one of my favorite shows on Netflix. While I agree with my friend's assessment that the show is "Sex Positive," I also think that is a lot more than that, sort of overall emotion positive. Somehow, the writers managed to sneak in the topic of mental illnesses and even politics into the story while making us laugh and reflect about our own hang ups.
