Ladies- I’m itching for a show to watch that is a female lead cast, and coming up short. Literally can’t watch another medical/legal/crime drama. Something like girlfriends guide to divorce or a more evolved SATC. Any recs?

Agree with a lot of suggestions already said. Also - The Good Wife. Although you might think it's about men in the first five min, it's not and Alicia is one of the best female characters ever. I am sure you've already watched Orange is the New Black but that deserves to be said. Broad City forever.

I stan Alicia, Kalinda and Diane!

Not a fiction show, but Sam Bee's Full Frontal is great. Also, A Black Lady Sketch Show is hilarious. If you like HGTV stuff, I love One of a Kind - Grace is a very unique designer. And any of Michelle Wolf's comedy specials or her short-lived show will have you 🤣. If you want throwbacks, Murphy Brown, Designing Women, Maude, Mary Tyler Moore, Golden Girls, Kate & Alley... not sure if any/all of them are available online, but worth it.

The book was so traumatising I couldn’t bring myself to watch the show honestly. It felt like infertility was villainized. And all the characters were just classic tropes. I do love reese Witherspoon, but idk if I have it in me to watch the show.

Biglaw first year deferred from September to late January with a $10k advance. I had to incur $11,000 in credit card debt to live, & right when I started work, had a medical emergency that ended up costing me another $3,500. My paychecks have been smaller due to paying back the advance and prioritizing maxing out my 401k and HSA (my credit card debt was interest free). It was depressing working these hours to mostly just pay needs and my debt. Today I paid it all off! Woooooo! I feel so free.

I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.

I just learned that my younger adult sibling has been severely, deeply depressed. This surfaced when sib said they needed help moving and the family showed up to find that the entire apartment was under 3-4ft of trash, including a significant amount of rotten food. (Sib has no sense of smell due to past medical issues.) We are floored. Sib is very private and no one knew. With COVID, no one has been in the apartment. Sib’s supposed to be moving across the country, and we’re worried…

Car trouble has me spending the night in rural Pennsylvania. For any of you dreamers thinking this might be the remote life you're ready to live, I promise you it is not.

So if you're a GCD or up, 80% chance you'd love the ad scene here.
