"Stewing" in the US? Thanks for nothing, autocorrect.

Anyway, this is funny, with characters given a bit room more to breathe than you usually see. Heather, in particular, is a delight. The pivot to dump the will they/won't they with Lachlan and Ainsley and bring cranky, wounded, fiftysomething Heather into the house was what sold us on this, a rare case of a show going off in a detour you were hoping for.

Although the plot content and character roll is very, very different, my spouse and I both were reminded of Good Girls, because of the mix of humor and drama and the way both shows have a knack for showing a human side of characters who seem mundane or repellent at first.
