Mom Complete Series 1-5 DVD Box Set
Love this show. As someone who grew up in a family with generational alcoholism and someone in recovery myself, I enjoy the way the writers find comedy in recovery. Someone involved in the show has personal experience with addiction and recovery. Too much of the show gets it right for there not to be. AA games no position on this show as it is an outside issue. I personally enjoy being able to relate to aspects of it and laugh.
SO FUNNY! Just recently found out about this show and OH MY GOD IS IT FUNNY! Such a quality show especially since lately a lot of show concepts suck and is just cheesy but this show makes me laugh out loud every time! My entire family loves it!! The best part is is that all 5 seasons are amazing! A lot of shows will have a bad season or two but every episode on Mom is a hit! (Also I just loveee Anna Faris! So glad she has her own show.)
The show stays with its successful formula of comedy mixed with some serious moments. Bonnie acquires a fiance which shakes up her character for added fun. Oddly though, Christy’s kids have now totally disappeared and there is no reference to her being a mom at all. This doesn’t really affect the quality of the show, but is a change. Nevertheless, as noted, if you liked the previous seasons, you will be pleased with this one as well I think.
This show flew under my radar for years. I discovered it only a few months ago when reruns began on TBS. I wanted to watch it from the beginning, and Amazon Prime is the best way to do that. The show may not be for everyone. If you are looking for something warm and sugary, go over to the Hallmark channel. If you want to laugh your ass off watching articulate characters dealing with real life problems in hilarious ways, this show is for you.
