When Jess's only son starts school it's a big learning curve, for Jess. She's thrown into a world of know-it-all, judgmental, passive aggressive women whose primary purpose is to promote their child as the most gifted, most brilliant and most bestest child ever. And let's not even start on the teachers. Joining the Junior Fundraising Committee to help establish herself in the school community, Jess hopes that her efforts might also help her to find some companionship, but alpha mum Heather is more interested in making money than making friends. Luckily, super chill mother-of-five Hine is there to play peacemaker. Together the mums must reach a ridiculous fundraising goal, with limited resources and a poor grasp of teamwork. Things aren't looking super great.

There's been some mean reviews....
23 July 2019 | by rorycbanksSee all my reviews

So I joined up with IMDB just so I could write this review.

I'm a week behind but I've just caught up with the first episode of this series and found it to be a wonderfully warm and funny show. When looking for more about it, It's especially embarrassing that 6 of these have been given by men, I mean come on. I'm a man (last time I checked, and I check often) and I found alot to laugh at in this first episode, starting straight away with the school's motto seen in the first scene"s establishing shot. There's a great cast, whether they be kids, teachers or the mums, giving naturally funny performances. Especially Morgana O'Reilly, who I've realised was also in the great NZ Horror/Comedy ""Housebound"" of which I'd been thinking fondly of just an hour ago. I hope this show is finding it's appreciative audience, and that they are legion. Looking forward to many future episodes.
