  • My friends always tell me “It’s weird, you’ll probably like it”. I’m happy to wear the weird banner. Did anyone else see Jennifer Beals at first?

    • I did! Isn’t that funny/ or sad!?

      • Totally… I was like Rose Burns?!? Who?! Totally shoes my age…

    • Well said. I think the show is fantastic and Rose Byrnes is at her best (acting). Her character is very difficult to like, the fat shaming is imploring and hard to swallow. But then… where to start? The longer you watch you begin to see why Sheila is the way she is and then you begin to see the change that begins. The other characters are what kept me going on this one and it paid off. I ended up loving it, rooting for Sheila and the other characters, and can’t wait for it to come back. And that being said, it’s not for everyone. You need some thick skin for this one.

  • Excellent analysis of a complicated show. I enjoyed it but it’s not for everyone just as you said. I feel the same about recommending the show- The Great. Loved it too but pretty kinky for an old lady to watch

  • Weird and odd are right up my alley! Have you all watched the original Belgian “Professor T.

    • I love Belgian Prof T. I’m savoring it, and slowly watching. I don’t want to binge and have over too quick.

    • ❤️ Professor T. I might have to sign up for Apple TV just yo watch Physical because I like Rose Byrne.

      • I just signed up to apple tv to watch it! …I thought Flashdance when I seen my email

  • Sounds like a but of a mess.

  • Sound great. If I try Apple for a month I’ll definitely watch. Although, sadly that probably won’t be for a while because I’m they don’t have much I like on Apple these days.

  • So I signed up for Apple TV and started it and, thanks to you, I’m hooked. The body dysmorphia doesn’t bother me at all. It’s just someone with a mental illness and, really, have you met my family? I do have one tiny issue. The music doesn’t line up with the dates. It’s supposed to be 1981 and songs like Space Age Love Song and the ever so iconic Gloria didn’t come out until 1982. There was another song used that didn’t come out until 1985 but I don’t remember which one. Regardless, I have decided to let that go and be glad for the royalties to Flock of Seagulls. I also had to get past the fact that for a minute there, I had Rose McGowan in my head not Rose Byrne (which would have been even weirder).

  • I really liked this show….brought back SO many memories of the early days of the aerobic craze, and tights and leotards and sweat bands! Yet another fabulous AppleTV show!

  • I have watched the first season. I’m glad that there will be a second. I found that your take on the show explains it perfectly. I found it hard to not watch and there were times when I wanted to give upon it, but I’m glad that I did not!

  • DG Strong: I miss your posts. I read Maria Semple’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette long before it was a movie and loved it. Wondered if you had read it. I love your essays and missed them this past few weeks, or have I had my head in the clouds.
