Single Drunk Female – a story of bringing yourself back from the brink | Freeform Series Review

hey guys and welcome to i want my eggs  tv reviews im sarah and today we are  ,going to be talking about the new show  coming to free form single drunk female  ,single drunk female tells the story of a girl  named samantha fink who is an alcoholic it  ,delves into her life when she has to leave her  amazing media job in new york and move back home  ,with her mother who also seems to have a problem  did you just talk about me the whole time yes  ,mother its all about you but yeah basically after  a horrific drunken evening samantha finds herself  ,on probation and having to go to forced aaa and  kind of get her life back together while on the  ,surface it can kind of seem like a super fluffy  show i actually dont think it really is does  ,it dive super deep into the world of alcoholism  and a.a no but it does give us a quick year in  ,the life through 10 episodes of a girl who is  trying to fix her life and turn herself around  ,playing samantha is sophia black dalia you might  recognize her from the mick playing her mother  ,is the ever amazing ali sheedy playing her best  friend felicia is lilly mae harrington as her  ,fellow a.a buddy james is garrick bernard her  sponsor olivia is played by rebecca henderson  ,and her ex-best friend brit is played by sasha  compare i can see you i miss being a drunk theres  ,a lot less accountability i enjoyed this show  a lot i feel like its not great but its also  ,not bad i enjoyed watching it its 10 episodes and  theyre all 30 minutes so its a really quick and  ,easy binge i love the characters everyone needs a  friend like felicia felicias character is amazing  ,and the actress who plays her does such  a phenomenal job that i just need her in  ,my life forever and always we all need a felicia  were gonna potty like when tom was still with the  ,patriots i cant the trailer for the show does  make it seem kind of light and fluffy like oh  ,lets make a light of someone whos an alcoholic  but i dont think single drunk female goes the  ,light and fluffy route so much as it goes a  digestible route theyre doing their best to  ,tell a story about a girl who has a severe problem  and is actually trying to do something about it  ,and struggles and fails and has triumphs  throughout the entire journey and i dont  ,consider her just because she has a personality  making it a light and fluffy show i think thats  ,not a correct description is it dark and edgy  absolutely not is it a free-form show where its  ,trying to push the boundaries a little bit almost  what brings you here today public intoxication  ,destruction of personal property almost blinding  my co-worker being awesome the character sam  ,starts off pretty unlikable and by the end of the  season i actually really feel for her shes trying  ,so hard to rebuild her life and gain back her  trust and do the steps that shes supposed to do  ,even when everything around her is telling her  that shes not good enough and that shell never  ,make it who can i complain to honestly the couple  of characters that i just really didnt understand  ,throughout the show are brit i mean outside of  the pilot episode our brit and the ex-fiancee  ,hey i wanted to tell you about this in person  my best friends marrying my ex-boyfriend oh  ,no now i understand that they are a huge catalyst  in this series brit was samanthas best friend  ,along with felicia and then you know things  happen with samantha and brit and samanthas  ,ex-boyfriend start dating and they get engaged and  what kind of [ __ ] is that hell no thats awkward  ,in any scenario however we dont really learn what  happened there we do get a handful of backstories  ,like we do with her buddy from a we get his entire  backstory which i appreciated but we dont get a  ,lot of who samantha was before this show we  get to hints and stories and we see her big  ,fallout moment but i wish that we actually had a  handful more of flashes to kind of understand why  ,everyones so angry with her and that choice  to not go in either direction makes it a very  ,surface level show so what im hoping for is that  it does get renewed for season two and they can  ,delve more into the stories and delve more into  samantha and who she is and part of who she was  ,because we dont want to erase kind of the awful  past its part of what makes her who she is today  ,that to me i think is whats missing from  the show and taking it from good to great  ,so make sure to give single drunk female a  shot check it out on freeform coming soon dont  ,judge me for having some wine at night its hard  to be a person i hear you single drunk female  ,series premiered january 20th on freeform thank  you guys so much for watching again im sarah  ,make sure you subscribe to the channel give this  video a thumbs up comment let me know if youre  ,gonna watch single drunk female if youve already  watched it and what you think id love to discuss  ,it with you and ring that bell so you dont miss  out on any more angsty videos until next time

Single Drunk Female: Season 1/ Episode 1 & 2 – Summary/ Review (with Spoilers)

[Music],single drunk female fits perfectly into,the brand of what free form presents in,terms of trying to give us different,takes on what it means to be,a 20-something maybe early 30 something,year old in modern times but in this,case,its focusing on the challenge of,sobriety especially when alcohol isnt,just a rite of passage for a lot of,people but also how they get through,their days and weeks,so to give a brief overview of the first,two episodes,sam is,a hot ass mess,she shows up to work drunk and gets,fired,she gets into an accident that causes,her to be on probation,she goes to rehab and relapses within,the first two episodes and,she ends up having to move back in with,her mom carol who you can tell she,doesnt have a good relationship with,now,why is this,lets just say that carol is not,somebody whos the most tactful person,to speak with,but also with,carols husband sams dad dying they,kind of lost that mediator that usually,would bring them closer together or at,the very least would help calm things,but with them living together now,the two are forced to deal with each,other for as long as sam is unable to,support herself,now lucky for her she has a sponsor in,olivia,and olivia knows someone named mindy who,is the manager of a local grocery store,now,of course a grocery store paycheck is,not going to support sam especially in,the boston area which is rather,expensive,but its its about baby steps of beat,building herself much less with her,being on probation she has to pay to,stay,and lest we forget,the car crash that she had that we,mentioned was into a party bus for her,best friend brett whos getting married,to her ex named joel,so,she owes five thousand dollars on top of,what she owes the court system,never mind,because carol wants to give,sam an incentive to get the hell out of,the house because you know,care will stall on the date again she,also makes sand payron so to add up all,these expenses,sam has to pay rent to her mom which is,an undisclosed amount,she owes brit five thousand dollars,and of course she has to pay the state,because of the damages she did,so,its,not a terrible life but its definitely,one with a lot of financial burdens,but,silver lining,felicia who used to be her drinking,buddy,theyre still friends and felicia tries,to stick up for sam whenever possible,olivia while her wife steph,stefani,wants to make sure that their proper,boundaries in place when it comes to,olivia and the people that she sponsors,you can see that olivia to a certain,point is willing to be that go-to person,for whenever sam is in crisis she,doesnt,she doesnt want to be her mother she,doesnt want to be her friend just a,sponsor and,while that is a little hard to accept,for sam since she really needs somebody,especially someone whos sober and kinda,can guide her in a way that,isnt just about the toe drinking thing,but because olivia is a peabody,award-winning writer and,journalist sam looks at her as a,possible mentor in terms of her,professional life as well so since,back when sam actually had a decent,paying job,sam was a writer,granted for some,bootleg buzzfeed type website but,nevertheless she was getting paid for,her articles so,shes hoping that with olivias help,maybe she can get back into that field,and really do something that matters,but,just to be clear there is one,kind of silver lining amongst all this,she meets a gentleman named james and,james,he too struggles with struggles,he too struggles with alcoholism but,hes been on,the wagon for a while,and also with somebody that sam took up,one hooked up with once when she was,drunk so this history there history that,she would like to continue but,it seems james applies that idea that he,doesnt want her to go from,an addiction to alcohol to an obsession,with him to kind of compensate for the,lack of drinking never mind possibly,going to a sex edition with him a sex,addiction with him,so,he makes it clear that if something,would have happened romantically,it would be in a year and a day,until that he seems to offer his,friendship,and for now,that seems to be good enough,so the first highlight is just showing,that alcohol dependency varies by person,and for some its a real issue like sam,yet others like carol its,not treated the same way,so in terms of sam we see the extreme of,it and thats pretty much drinking to,cope drinking in order to be social,and pretty much alcohol being a crutch,one that you have to be constantly,inebriated by in order to get through,your day,but on the other end of things you have,people like carol sams mom who drinks,at the end of the day as a reward of,some sorts as a way of kind of relaxing,and you can easily see how one can,become the other,and yet some people,be it because of will or who knows what,kind of stay in that one lane,while other people decide they want to,go to the far left lane and speed on,ahead until they crash,and with that said i think another,highlight has to be that carol,she wants to be supportive yet shes,imperfect in that role for with having a,husband that died of cancer,the idea of ken of alcoholism being a,disease doesnt necessarily sit right,with her,and because shes on her own journey in,her life despite being quote unquote,this mother,she,carols life doesnt revolve around sam,carol is dating this guy named bob,she has this book club,and while we dont see or know of her,working anywhere she doesnt seem to be,worried about sams every movement,and with that in mind shes not,necessarily learning all the terms that,you would say to somebody thats trying,to cover shes not handling sam with kid,gloves,shes treating sam like an adult who has,less of an addiction or disease and more,so who makes,bad personal decisions,and,its not the most terrible thing to,watch,for,lets look at it this way a lot of us,especially in this generation younger,are well aware of the different type of,mental disorders different ways youre,supposed to talk to people in a,politically correct manner but while we,see a lot of that on tv thats not how,everybody lives,a lot of people,they may understand what it means to be,trans to be,alcoholic to be,depressed and all that,but,its one thing to read about in the book,see it in a movie commercial etc and,then to have it in your life,and to have it in your life makes you,actually have to deal with it and face,it in,i think with carol,she wants to be that supportive mother,but she doesnt want to sacrifice her,own joy and journey for the sake of a,daughter who,she loves,but at the same time recognizes a hot,mess that,has to clean up her own,her own,and not rely on her mother to pick up,the pieces and do that for her daughter,like she had to do for herself when the,dad died and,depending how things were,maybe sam didnt help her pick up the,pieces and,you can kind of see this as,the word retribution would be a little,bit too dramatic but i can definitely,see this as a perhaps tit for tat,situation so shes handling her,obligations of the mother but shes not,trying to go the extra mile in a way,that maybe sam is looking for or even,needs,the next highlight is just theres so,many cute couples on the show you have,olivia and stefani who have this real,weird dynamic to them since olivias is,kind of quiet and demure person in a way,meanwhile stephanie is like really,intense,but alongside them we have bob and carol,who,have this,corny banter between them which is just,so adorable,and even in terms of like james and sam,who are just introduced to us,just something interesting there about,i think its because theyve both gone,through stuff when it comes to drinking,sam you know getting into accidents and,causing a little bit of chaos and,apparently james getting drunk and,kidnapping peoples dogs,which was random but okay,and because of,them both being alcoholics and on top of,that,in recovery and having a history because,they hooked up once,you can get behind it and when you add,in that little date that they have which,i dont know if it wa

TV Review: Freeform SINGLE DRUNK FEMALE Series (No Spoilers)

[Music],what up this is drama screen covering,movies tv and entertainment and heres,my review of freeforms new series,single drunk female hey before you watch,my review please subscribe to my channel,press that like button ring that bell so,you can get notified whenever i post new,videos and if youd like to help support,this channel please do so at patreon.com,slash rama screen thats patreon.com,screen lets rock this of all the new,shows out there this probably has the,most brutally honest title whats it,about well its about a female and shes,single and shes drunk weight correction,shes trying to no longer be drunk,honestly i dont know much about,alcoholic anonymous nor their 12 steps,program im more of a moderate drinker,but going into screening this i was,wondering how on earth are they gonna,find the humor in this is this even a,laughable topic but i started watching,it and there are a total of 10 episodes,in this first season and you know what,this show single drunk female is kind of,enjoyable its a drama d so its one of,those shows where at the end of each,episode theres a life lesson to be,learned and while the comedy is not,laugh out loud hysterical its very much,character based and just the right,amount of observational funny written,and created and exactly produced by,simone finch in single drunk female,after a public flame out at a new york,media company 20 something alcoholic,samantha think is forced to seize the,only chance she has to sober up and,avoid jail time,moving back home with her overbearing,mother carol back in greater boston,samantha restarts her life working at a,local grocery store while surrounded by,all of the triggers that made her drink,in the first place confronted with,remnants of her old life including,run-ins with her perfect former best,friend who is now dating her ex samantha,sets out on a path to move past her,worst self and figure out her best self,starring sofia black dalia aliya sheedy,rebecca henderson and garrick bernard,okay comedies about drunk people are,common right thats why we have a,thousand and one,out the wazoo but comedies about,sobriety now thats the tricky part and,thats what i think is interesting about,what simone finch had created here,because single drunk female feels like,its written by people who not only,probably had gone through the experience,themselves but they can also see the,lighter side the not so serious side,about sobriety without minimizing,sobriety itself the first couple of,episodes are about how samantha enters,the program and the subsequent episodes,are about samantha figuring out whether,or not she can get her life back on,track all along she is supported by her,sponsor her a.a friends her mom her,moms decent boyfriend and these,characters are likable and fun to watch,even samanthas probation officer has a,few chuckle-worthy moments that leave a,mark by the way theres a lot of,alcohol-related puns on this show,theres even a st patricks day episode,where they of course have to fight the,temptation so it gets pretty wild this,is my first time noticing lead actress,sofia black dahlia i wasnt familiar,with her past gigs prior to this show,but theres a certain heart and delight,to her whole not giving a damn attitude,sofia exudes so much confidence in her,performance even as her character,samantha makes constant trial and error,in her journey into getting her,together including making amends doing,community service the whole shebang i,think my favorite episodes are the ones,involving samantha discerning which,parts about her previous life are worth,keeping and which parts are better off,left behind because sometimes it takes,being sober to realize the good you got,going around you not sure whether or not,a well-intentioned adult dramedy,tackling topics like this would find its,audience but if you give it a chance,single drunk female may not necessarily,end up becoming your most favorite new,show of the year but it certainly wont,be your least

started to make,more sense the show as she continued on,her journey of sobriety she called the,script a living script as the show,changed drastically as she got more and,more sober which makes sense of course,because when she began writing the show,it was not about a woman who wants to,get sober it was about a woman actually,getting sober and living her life after,her sobriety which was nothing like the,initial draft of the show according to,finch when finn showed it to her writing,mentor he said that the show had,potential but it was lacking something,still her mentor also struggled with,alcohol addiction and was farther than,finch in his sobriety journey and,apparently helped finch a great deal not,just in her writing but in her sobriety,too he helped me a lot getting the draft,into manageable shape where we could,start taking it out and we did finch,continued on in an interview with,entertainment weekly by saying for about,two years we tried doing a lot of things,and didnt work but i think i wasnt,accepting of my alcoholism and my,writing reflected that according to finn,she would write and rewrite the same,scenes and the same episodes over and,over trying to find a point in which she,was proud of the show it took some time,but it was eventually found by finch and,her writing mentor the show shares many,moments from finchs real life according,to finch the show has many moments from,her actual journey with sobriety and her,battle with alcohol that allow for the,characters pain to come from a very,real place this of course is one of the,elements that separates single drunk,female from other shows because unlike,other incredible dramas or thrillers the,character is going through a battle so,real and so raw that many people,watching can directly relate to each,character for example the mothers,characters view of the father character,is a great deal like how finchs mother,talked about finchs father she talked,about the similarities in an interview,with huffington post saying theres,certain aspects of the show especially,with the mom character talking about the,father all that comes from a real place,finch also did not hold back when,discussing her past with alcohol and how,it is essentially the same backstory for,the main character in the show like,finch the main character in the show,begins drinking at age 15 and spends a,good portion of her younger years,romanticizing alcohol and believing it,to be much better and much more,rewarding than it actually is it took,finch a long time to realize how ugly,alcohol really is and that putting it on,a pedestal was part of her downfall and,she could not begin to rise until she,profoundly understood how ugly alcohol,abuse really is the last couple years of,it were really not glamorous or fun i,think that for a while i thought,drinking was this romantic thing and i,think sam has that too she said then you,get into it and its actually a coping,mechanism for all these other things,its not romantic at all there was no,punch held back during the shows,creation finch stated in the same,interview that there are moments in the,first season that are very difficult to,watch but she is very glad she decided,to do it that way she did not want any,of the hardships caused by alcohol abuse,to be lessened by censoring them she,wanted her journey to be shown on tv,exactly the way she recalls it so that,people who are in her scenario know that,if she can beat it so can they finch,said ill just say episode 8 of season 1,is a really tough episode to watch she,said we did it and im really grateful,for that i for one am glad that they,decided to not sugarcoat an issue as,scary and as serious as this one if,finch decided to make her show less,graphic it might completely take away,the punch that the show is intended to,pack the show will have some tough and,downright disgusting moments but if it,were not for those moments people might,not understand the severity of the,situation or the people who are,suffering through alcoholism and,watching the show might not stick around,if they cannot find truth in this,disease due to its possible censorship,it is important to finch and other,people who have suffered or continue to,suffer through the disease that it is,addiction to show the actual hardships,and the actual events that alcoholics,suffer through to make sure the audience,sees exactly what its like to suffer,through alcoholism alcoholism comes in,all shapes sizes and ages according to,finch as we mentioned earlier in the,video finch began drinking at age 15 and,this was where she began her addiction,which when you think about it is a very,common age for alcoholics to begin,drinking some people get it from,siblings parents other family members or,bad friends and even though they are so,young this is the beginning of a,life-altering addiction however when you,think about it most media that covers,alcoholism does not show how young most,alcoholics begin their addiction and how,long they suffer for which is exactly,what finch wants to highlight finch,wants her audience to know that you can,be any age and begin your addiction,including age 15. finch also pointed out,that most stories centered around,addiction do not highlight the journey,from a womans perspective and this is a,crime according to finch her show is,truly groundbreaking because of its,protagonist perspective and the star,actress on the show black delia agrees i,think that we often dont see stories of,recovery told from a younger female,perspective and i think that it can,affect anybody at any age at any time,finchs message is a noble one and one,that she is proud to share now that she,is seven years sober and one she is glad,to share in a comedic and dramatic story,for people of all ages if you have not,started watching single drunk female you,ca
