Insulting!
Verified purchase
Didn't it bother any one else that an adult women needed someone to help her with finances!!! What, she was a stay at home mom so she couldn't do the house hold budget? How incredibly insulting is that!

Watched first episode only. Obnoxious.
Verified purchase
I only watched the first episode. I really couldn't stand the characters. They were obnoxious to me. Perhaps the show gets better after the first episode?

I enjoyed the premise of these three women(+an unmarried sister) that have been friends and confidantes since their adult children were toddlers. I just really don't get the idea that the episodes are only 3 to 6 minutes long. They feel more like an extended commercial rather than a full episode. If they had been called vignettes instead of episodes, it would have made more sense to me. There really wasn't time to flesh out any of these characters so that the viewer had any understanding of what was really going on. It left me with way too many unanswered questions.

What a horrible show, the acting is bad
Verified purchase
What a horrible show, the acting is bad, writing is bad just not something I care to watch. I tried 3 episodes, thankfully they are less than 8 minutes long. I've found I do like the Amazon Originals we've watched so one clunker will not sour us on them.

Terrific webseries with primetime possibilities!
Verified purchase
As an age 40 plus woman I could relate to the series in so many ways - I loved the characters and the writing. The ways that these women bond and enter the "empty nest" phase of their lives is really fun to watch, as are their adventures navigating through life, with and without their male counterparts! I'm excited to watch Season 2!

Short, funny, naughty, irreverent... friendship and middle age...
Verified purchase
Funny, sad, insightful, crazy, TMI, and full of middle aged friendship. I'd love to see more. It is off to a solid start. I liked the short video format.

I like where it ended as I am curious where they'll take the show. These women are finally figuring out who they are and have each other's backs while they do that.

Verified purchase
It's interesting. I would like to watch it more but they episodes are way too short. How can you suspend disbelief when you are barely getting into a show and then it ends and you have to get involved all over again... then it ends again. It would be much more enjoyable if I could watch a 30 minute or 60 minute episode.

Just the thing for a mid-life woman trying to navigate a new time in her life
Verified purchase
This show is spot-on for the mid-life mom who is now faced with an empty-nest. The characters are interesting and believable. I can relate and see many of my friends' personalities and lives in the tribe that is 'The Other F Word.' The mini episodes are perfect for streaming on the go and it's fun!
