I've been watching "Workin' Moms" on CBC. Not because the struggles of these women resonate with me so much as I can just click and watch (I've "unplugged" my cable) but probably because I just miss Kim's Convenience.
It's not bad, though. Women-made, women-centred. It's got its moments.
Curious note: the very first minutes of the very first episode show the main characters, in some "Mommy" group, baring and commenting on each other's naked breasts. I don't remember that from "Little Mosque On The Prairie". I assume that CBC is taking a swing at HBO.
I am REALLY not interested in watching that, and it seemed very tacky and vulgar.
The bare breasts, or the "Mommy" group?
Personally, I just kind of find the whole (gratuitous) nudity thing a bit unexpected, from the CBC. I'm betting the upcoming "Anne of Green Gables" reboot features no nudity whatsoever. And I'm glad "The Beachcombers" never trod that road. A bit off-piste?
I don't think bare breasts or bare anything is vulgar, but yes, gratuitous nudity and the Mummy group, and why Workin' moms without a G? Are they in Trump country? I just started to watch it and found it stupid. My friends who have children (and I'm referring to younger friends, with small children) aren't suddenly brain-deprived.
