All I can say is that I HIGHLY recommend any and everyone really, to watch both seasons of this show. I've told each one of my friends that agreed to watch this (because I recommended it) that it's not easy to swallow at first and that there are tons of "triggers" - however, there are even more lessons learned/taught, eye-opening realizations, and inspiration. It shows us just how important the female bond is and just how powerful it can be as women, as friends, as single career women, as mothers, as single mothers, as wives and as human beings.
Liked the first season but stopped watching this one after five episodes because it was so tedious. Never thought I'd hate Meryl Streep in a role and I'm not talking about her annoying character. I actually couldn't take her acting in this one. Don't bother - they should have stopped with the first season.
