First of all, I have to defend this show from what it was accused of in another review. It does NOT mock people who follow their path to enlightenment. Read more

Maybe I just don't like Laura Dern..but I found this show tasteless, unfunny, unmoving and demeaning to those of us who are on a spiritual path of enlightenment: I felt that this show made fun of that way of life. From the stereotypical way she dressed for her "meeting" to the way she "like" had to speak so cool. I was just about to turn it off and vomit when lo and behold a vision of unbridled hotness came into view, Luke Wilson! Other than him, this show is repulsive and offensive. Read more
