Motherland

Motherland

Meet the Alpha Moms, headed by Amanda (Lucy Punch), very much the queen bee. Everything is organised, clean and sparkly - even the kitchen cork board is a statement of success. At the other end of the spectrum, we meet Liz (Diane Morgan), who is totally chaotic and feels the kids should enjoy free expression - if they want to do kamikaze jumps of the sofa, she drags a mattress round for safety. Somewhere between Amanda and Liz is Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin) - she is organised - she has to be as she is a successful events organiser - but when her mother Marion (Ellie Haddington) decides she is no longer going to be the free child-sitter and school-run taxi, Julia finds her organisation skills are taxed and nowhere near the level of the Alpha Moms. Also in the mix is Kevin (Paul Ready) - he is the stay-at-home dad, who, rather than fighting against that, is embracing it with gusto - much to the irritation of the other mums.

Brilliant! I loved that it was basically a show about what happened that day.

Put me on the "waiting for Season 2" list. I loved this show. I'm older, my kids are grown now, and I can laugh at the same issues that used to torment me.

I liked it. Been there, done that. The essence appears to be compassion.
