I stayed up all night to watch seasons 1 and 2 and laughed quietly. I wonder if Diane Ladd's real-life mothering looked as serene as her semi-detached character portrayal in the series.Laura Dern was pretty convincing as the semi-detached daughter. Apparently the father's suicide when Amy was just a little girl, sent them both mother and daughter off-kilter.
The mother was a grown-up, so she's aware of consequences. Amy is still a little kid, full of exuberance,oblivious to other people's sensibilities and short on impulse control, trying to function in the real world of big people. People who get involved with her wish they hadn't.
