The Goodbye Year

Melanie has a slacker senior son who is adorable but lost. On her way to being an empty nester she smothers him in unwanted attention for his own good but completely misses the mark of who he actually wants to be. Beyond wealthy Sarah idolizes her perfect Ashley who got into Harvard ED, while her husband’s secrets destroy their family and Will and his wife are fine as long as his affair with Lauren continues and his controlling, OCD, vice principal wife runs the ship. In this small enclave in one of California’s wealthiest neighborhoods, call it “The Housewives with Highschool Seniors,” these pretty horrible people learn just how horrible they really are. I love a good satire of parenting but this was too over the top ridiculous and the simplistic writing and predictable storyline just didn’t grab my attention. May be a case of “it’s not you it’s me” but either way just not my cup of tea.
