Tig Notaro's One Mississippi


#1

The Amazon pilot from 2015 has been buffed up to a six episode series. It’s pretty damn good, but the humor is mixed with a lot of pain. John Rothman is just awesome as her awkward stepfather. Produced by Louie CK and it has a very similar vibe to his show.

Just finished season 2 of the show, and I love it. Diablo Cody is listed as a co-creator and it shows. The show is super real, and very funny. Tig is great, and the supporting cast is great as well. First season can be a tough watch, because it is unflinching in its portrayal of grief over the loss of a loved one.

Season 2 deals a lot more about living in a post Trump south as a gay woman. Dealing with religious types and those who have prejudice. I love how the show deals with these issues with nuance and depth. Not to mention how the season ends with quite the emotional gut punch. I really hope that it gets renewed for a season 3.

The second season was really good. I thought the chemistry between Tig and her coworker was very good and real. Which makes sense because that is her real-life wife 😋
