Real talk.

These smart ladies are putting a microscope on the nature of friendship in ways I didn't know I needed to hear. I'm excited to hear what future episodes hold!

This Show Gets It

You know that feeling you get as a mid to late 20 something about having (or not having) friends? This show hits those feels exactly! First episode had a lot of preview for the season, but is great on it's own. It's like using science to make friends, what's better than SCIENCE? Can't wait for more episodes!
