Pandemic TV (Undoing) (COVID)

(Would we have watched Undoing if there was no pandemic?  Who knows.)

 

At nine last night we watched the final episode

of a trashy show  trashy and dislike are not

synonyms called Undoing the title one of the show’s

strongest attributes.  A friend called it good New York real estate

porn.  Hugh Grant handsome as always dapper in character pediatric

oncologist Nicole Kidman a little too facelifted beautiful of course but so skinny

she’s a little  hard to watch.  She is a couples therapist who walks briskly.

Her father is rich rich  Donald Sutherland.  He wears an overcoat in many

scenes has a continual I am a Rich Man gaze. I’ve  never wanted to write

TV reviews until now I’m not a TV expert didn’t grow up watching much

but if I were to write a review right now I’d say

we were glad to watch  because the show’s Good Enough sufficiently

distracting from All Those Other Things even some sex

ended last night won’t go on for years

and now, maybe we’ll watch who killed

The Mother on Middle Beach.

 

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
