    I watched the first two episodes and they were so much fun. Joy Nash and Tamara Tunie are especially good. Julianna Margulies has surprised me the most as I had no idea she could be so funny. I have to say that I am so happy to see Debra Monk in her role as Plum's mother. I loved Debra in Nero Wolfe and although her role here is small, she is excellent as always.

I think that this is a show that people will either love or hate. Those who love the show can and will see it for what it is; a satire that pokes at patriarchy and its values. If you enjoy satire, give this one a go. I highly recommend it. Expand

    Dietland defies facile definition or a simple fit. At its most successful, it’s a lively walk through a woman’s struggle to redefine herself in a society telling her to disappear. But the hook, manifested in a mystery vigilante feminist hunting down rapists and child molesters, fails to solidify enough within the first three episodes to command our attention in a real way, beyond serving up the occasional static shock. At the outset of a show like this, any shortcomings in the secondary plot are excusable given the complexity of Plum’s interior world.

    The show is still finding its footing, and its early episodes show promise if not precision.

    Dietland’s biggest problem isn’t its tonal shifts; it’s the show’s structure, which is surprisingly haphazard for a drama so thematically complicated.
