    It should be renewed. Harry needs more air time, and the psychiatrist needs to be replaced. She is a horrible actress. Each lady had their own little story going on; it held my interest. The dead air time during the psychiatrist’s scenes was boring. They made her appear to be too stupid for the amount of education she is supposed to have.

    These women are an embarrassment to women everywhere. They all have great lives and careers and they just continue to do stupid things in their personal lives. I can’t help but find it so unbelievable that I probably wouldn’t watch a second season. I watched this summer series because there are a few talented players, but the story line just gets sillier and sillier. No great loss if this doesn’t make it back.

        Gina,
        Are you kidding? Women have affairs all the time. Married women! Single women too. You must not get out much in the real world. This series is great, and the acting is superb! The Majority wants it to come back, if you don’t want to see it, don’t watch! But, the rest of us will.
