The November 15th episode of “Mom” was magnificent. This series combines comedy and drama in ways we’ve not seen on primetime television. Violet the daughter and granddaughter of alcoholics has a podcast that has breathtaking honesty. It pierces her mother. The creators and producers bravely allow the actors and writers the liberty to go almost five minutes without a laugh. Don’t worry there is enough laughter in the rest of this episode to fill your endorphins. Many of you avoid the series because of the generic awful title. But this underrated series moves to the top of the class. Get ready to relish the show. Make room now to binge watch the first five seasons if you haven’t discovered this gem.
