Are you there? It’s me, Chelsea

Caught one episode of Are You There? It’s Me, Chelsea It’s a show about a hard-livin’ woman, drinkin’ and humpin’ like a Sex And The City gal. She’s played by Laura Prepon, who is talented and is lovely enough that she could get away with being a little less talented. And she floats mostly over the material, which is not awful, but felt pretty common these days. Generic material, generic rhythms…and what makes it worse, they sell the character out. The episode ends with it making clear that her libidinous attitude gets in the way of the true happiness of being, well, normal. The show chose generic morality over embracing its character; I choose other television over embracing this show.
