All three Camden generations dread the annual visit of Eric's parents, "The Colonel" (John Camden) and Grandma Ruth Camden. The tension between father and son is heightened when both Eric and "The Colonel" want to adopt a homeless and orphaned 9-year old
Laura Dern, as always, gives an amazing performance. She is fun to watch lose her mind and easy to enjoy it while still remaining sympathetic to her character. I simultaneously wanted to stop her from making matters worse for herself while sitting back and watching the aftermath.
Mike White is one of the most underrated writers in Hollywood. The two together made a great team.
Sometimes it takes to hit rock bottom to build a better version of you, and it can be a crazy experience just like this show.
This show is remarkable at portraying the antagony between real and ideals/expectations. It's extremely annoying to watch this show like a and very different if you picture it being a theatre play. Great premise and acting !
