I have basically been having a lot of feelings since I started this show (and have been putting off finishing it, savoring it and taking my time because once it's over it will be OVER and there is precious little enough as it is and I just want it to last forever), and this whole idea of Didi's hero worship of Dahlia, it's come back again and again. There's something in nearly every episode that sets me off on this tangent again (I have a feeling that one day I'll write so many more words about this). In short...

Through the whole first season, even when Didi is being angry and vicious at her mama because she knows she's using, there's also this underlying thread where you can see that she absolutely worships Dahlia. That first scene where the family is reunited is a big one, but you see it in most of the episodes. Didi loves her mama. And, as angry as she is, Didi also never tells anyone precisely what is going on. She's protecting her mother.

Obviously this is something I needed to write about.

The day Mama gets out of prison is the happiest day of Didi's life. Mama is a queen, even with her too-wide too-short ratty clothes and her awful hair, and compliments from her are like gold. )

I have recently become OBSESSED with this show. Like, in a big way. And the fact that there are only 20 episodes makes me weep inside...and possibly out...but we can totally attribute that to my allergies! YEAH.


Anyways, I've always been a lowkey fan of Minnie Driver, and I'll always say I like her but then I'll watch something and be like "WAIT SHE'S REALLY BRILLIANT WHY AM I NOT OBSESSED WITH HER? She's pretty great. So I started this show because of her and I have not been disappointed. Hurrah for fantastic, strong female leads!

PS. I do NOT advocate drug use! They just portray the struggle so well and I wanted to explore that.

You've seen the way that Didi looks at you. You think that if Sam and Cael and Wayne started lookin' at you in that same way you'd just up and die.
