Three suburban moms find themselves in financial emergencies for reasons that could be ripped from today's headlines: philandering husbands, divorce, inadequate health insurance, and full-time jobs that don't pay enough to live on. When the pressure gets too great, they team up to bend some rules rather than wind up homeless.
Middle-class folks do not one day decide to be career criminals. Under duress the trio chisels a little here and swipes a little there. When they get away with it they are exhilarated and so are we. When they start to build on their successes, it starts to get scary. This is essentially the first season.
In the second season, it "gets real," as the saying goes. Once they have started to move serious money, serious people show up, both criminals and law enforcement agencies. Season Two could be entitled, "It's all fun and games until . . ."
The third season is available for streaming and the fourth season is underway. I'm looking forward to following this exploration of the open border between middle-class economics and organized crime.
The acting is uniformly excellent. That goes for the leading women and for the men who play their husbands, lovers, bosses, and partners in crime.
