Liked this from the very first episode...from the acting to the music .. big thumbs up from me... can't help but adore Cookie ..so looking forward to the second season hope they will increase the episodes .. 12 episodes is just not enough for me.

I watched only the pilot and it was not my jam. I don't get the love for the show. The nuance, as it was, had all the subtlety of a neon peacock. The writers felt like you were the dumbest viewer on the planet, re-explaining what " going public" meant at least 15 times. Every aspect of the show except for the character of cookie came off as some kind of trope.I wanted to like it i just cannot imagine the worm really turning for me.
