Will Woman (Television Thoughts: American Woman S01 E02 E03)

300I have watched Episodes two and three of ‘American Woman,’ and I like it a lot more. I know this was originally billed as a comedy, but it’s more a soap, and also I think it is evolving into a ‘Sex and The City’ type of series, with minor emphasis now on the other female character. Bonnie, at the end of the first episode, finds not only her husband cheating on her, but that he has squandered other people’s money and she is left with a mostly empty checking account. While the house is in her name, she can no longer maintain it (Her pool is turning green and she has to clean it)  Silverstone makes the character sympathetic, although should you really feel sorry for a rich housewife. Remember, though, that this was another time, and we see her having difficulties looking for a job due from her lack of real experience. Bonnie ends up working for May Co, at the branch where her old rich friends are shopping. As I said, Silverstone is mostly fine, but she has this habit of mouthing her words like she just swallowed chewing gum, and it is distracting me. But that’s a personal thing. I like the fact that the show is 22-26 minutes long. The commitment per episode isn’t as exhausting, akin to ‘Younger.’ This makes it easy for me to give my time to the show, and it is getting interesting to me as these episodes roll.
