So on S01 E04 of ‘The Morning Show’ we get to know more about Bradley (Reese Witherspoon) but do we, really? It’s her first week as co-host, and she is committing some really big blunders – but are they calculated or is she just a run-of-the-mill screw up? I wish the show was more definitive in that, but it isn’t. She has been described as a ‘truth teller’ but maybe she just has no filter. I mean, in real life, can you imagine if an anchor just almost casually mentions that she got an abortion at age 15. In this episode, Witherspoon has the showier role, but Aniston still gets her choice scenes. And, there is a part of me that is unsure about Aniston’s acting skills here and maybe it’s the fact that I still cannot shake the Jennifer Aniston persona from the character.
The episode ends with some MeToo relevance – there is a question as to whether the management knew about the sexual shenanigans going on at the show, so when Bradley interviews the accuser, she churns the narrative. Everyone else goes berserk, of course, but Bradley just wants to get to the bottom of it (rolls eyes)
