You had me at Fat Chick! I’m so looking forward to S2 on January 20th
I wasn’t sure when Hulu announced they had a comedy starring a fat woman and not the ideal version who’s curvy in the right places that’s barely plump. BUT A FAT woman trying to navigate dating, lack of confidence in self, friendship with Fran (Lolly Adefope), a crappy boss and shit job! Yoinks from the first episode Annie (Aidy Bryant) had me giggling and cringing with my life streaming on Hulu for everyone to see me. I can’t wait for the new 8 episode season but want to rewatch season one to hate her (loose description) boyfriend since she can do so much better … I mean being ALONE is better than that guy!
I ADORE her friend who’s the cheerleader we all need! I literally have a friend who’s always giving me great love and advice that I ignore. I’m still wallowing in my own mistakes but have finally decided to crawl out of the hole.
About Shrill S2: After facing her demons – her mom, her boss and, of course, her troll – Annie starts the season feeling pretty good with boyfriend Ryan by her side. That is, until she realizes that hastily quitting her job and jumping into a relationship with someone who is, well, a little less career-focused may not have been the best idea. But Annie isn’t the only one on a path to self-discovery… she’ll be joined by both Fran and her mother, who are also figuring out what they really want out of life. And while it’s not easy to get what she always imagined she’d want, Annie is no longer the doormat she once was – and she’s just getting started.
