    The characters in this story are insufferable. I'm going to slap them all. Some of them three or four times. And then a fifth--just for fun. Seriously, there's not a single perosn in this story that I'd root for, especially the main characters. And Melissa Leo is damned annoying in this role.

    I'd rather watch Law&Order reruns.

    I'm looking forward to Evan Rachel Wood starting next week. I think she'll be amazing in the role of older Veda. She seems to have that haughty attitude down pat. Plus, since she always dresses in that 40s kind of style, you know she'll look gorgeous.

    I agree that the characters are pretty slappable, though Mildred wasn't so bad this week, and Melissa Leo actually did something for once. I don't mind the ex hubby though.

    Really? I thought Mildred was worse this week. The woman has pride in all the things that don't matter and none of the things that do.

    She won't win any 'person of the year' awards, but at least she was working hard at her job, tried to do something for her brat, and tried (then succeeded) in standing up to Greasy.

    I kind of like how the main character isn't exactly one that you automatically feel sympathy for. Yeah, she started out the series broke with an adulterer husband, but most of her hardships have been brought on by her own attitude issues. I find we're usually forced to try to find likeable things in main characters in series, and I like how they don't make Mildred out to be a saint.
