The story is good, but the wife and daughter are insufferable
on April 14, 2016
The story is good, but the wife and daughter are insufferable, and there's too much of them for my taste. Especially the teenage daughter. Would someone please tell her she is not the only person living on the planet and not the only person with complications and feelings. I keep finding myself wanting to scream out loud at the wife, "The guy was in a hole and tortured for eight years, and you can't pause for some patience in a difficult relationship with the guy!" And the teenage girl with her constant self pity and lashing out calling everyone moron. In one of her self-pity scenes she tells her father, "It's like, you don't know anyone anymore." Well duh! Obviously it's drama for TV but it's way overdone with the daughter and wife and I can't watch it. There's already enough constant angst with Carrie's determination and frustration of others not seeing what she sees and...well, it's just overkill angst as far as I'm concerned. The story is good, and if CONSTANT angst from personal conflict is tolerable for you, then it's your bag, but not mine.
