LB’S NOTE: Really, it is…assuming that streaming is TV. The way definitions are changing, this sly, funny, insane series probably could just as easily be called a multi-part feature film.
But that’s not my point. I’ve watched the first four episodes so far and have been consistently amazed at the intensity of its satire of good ole church-goin’ Southerners. I’m also amazed by the fact that said church-goin’ Southerners haven’t yet arisen in angry protest at the truth being presented here.

Did I say it’s produced by the great Jenji Kohen of Orange is the New Black and Weeds and is funny as hell? Well, it is.

The series, created by Kathleen Jordan, takes on a different tone than your usual high school tale. The show leans into being witty and quirky with perfectly timed improvised one-liners, while still keeping you on the edge of your seat with its drama….
