The episode was good, but Christy needs a new... something. Job? Boyfriend? Something.

they put aside so many good side characters, the scenes from restaurant were dropped after she lost her manager job, we never see her at the school, we never see Bexter, Roscoa, Violet, the lawyer, Marjories husband, we dont see Bonnie "working", Jill or Wendy dating ...

^ Yeah! They made such a big deal about her passing her exams and being accepted into law school at the end of Season 3, and now it's hardly mentioned. I thought there would be loads of scenes of her in class which could introduce us to new characters and new storylines, but nothing. It's like she doesn't even study anymore.

And we've heard nothing of Roscoe since he went off the rails earlier in the season. Or the fallout it may have caused between Baxter and Candace. And Violet is back with Luke! That is a major story, especially for people who've been watching since the Pilot, but not mentioned at all.

Instead, it's just the Bonnie show, with every episode about her relationship with Adam.

I understand why it took 3 weeks for the latest episode now - they needed that time to think of a story without Bonnie and Adam!

But yay, one of the best episodes of this season last night! Jill totally owned it, had me lolling a few times :lol:

The last episode was good, best in weeks. And no Adam, which was refreshing.

Caught up on the 3 newest episodes. The Adam episode wasn't so bad - he's okay in small doses I guess.

Of course, the main talking point is Christy being raped. I think it was handled realistically and well. If the guy was suddenly arrested and sent to jail in the same episode, it would have been the typical (and unrealistic) scenario which happens in most TV shows. I'm not sure how I feel about this being added to Christy's story (will it ever be mentioned again?) but the acting from the cast was great as usual, particular Christy, Marjorie and Wendy.

Good episode this week. As usual, the mix of drama and comedy was well-balanced.

it was very tastefully done, I was quiet afraid to watch it, but it turned out very nice.

The season finale was a good episode, but not season finale material. There seems to be no set up into the next season.

Overall, this was the weakest season yet. Far too much time spent on Bonnie and Adam's relationship and Christy got left with filler material. Barely any episodes featuring Baxter, Violet and Roscoe either. That was probably the biggest flaw. The show is called Mom but there was hardly any evidence of Christy being a mom during the whole season. There was so much potential there - Violet back with Luke (for long term viewers, this is huge!), relationship problems and marriage prep between Baxter and Candice, and Roscoe's dabbling with alcohol and weed. Not to mention Christy going to law school. Instead, I can't remember a thing she did all season other than sleep with Marjorie's nephew. She doesn't even have a job anymore. She's is a secondary character now and it's The Bonnie Show. Bonnie is great but there used to be so much more going on.

On the plus side, Jill really shone this season and became the funniest member. Wendy was great as always.

I need more Wendy next season. Jill and Marjorie always have more lines than her.

I agree and disagree. It's kinda cute having her for random lines. I don't know if I want her to ever have a proper storyline because it could ruin her.

That Is actually the best thing about Wendy ... She has only few, but hilarious lines.

When Is the season premiere?

Yeah, they need to give Christie more storylines, especially with her kids.

The season premiere was alright, although it was again mostly about Bonnie and Adam. Jill, Wendy and Marjorie are now in the opening credits. I hope this means they will have more to do this season.

Solid season opener. Wendy's tirade at Jill was the highlight for me. :lol:
