Gonna trust you that it sucks. It's been a darling for a few years but I don't trust network darlings. Been spoiled by pirating or renting premium cable for too long. If anyone disagrees with OP and thinks I'm making a mistake, please provide premium cable or much older network comps.

So, my wife has gotten on a kick of watching this...show.

I just can't figure something out. Does it suck because there isn't a single likable character on the show? Or, does it suck because everyone whines incessantly about everything?

It's like the real life version of HROT
My wife as well. Luckily we have other televisions. And the answer to both questions is yes.

Oh, we have Hulu. The problem is, you can stream the series on there.

It is, quite literally, one of the least enjoyable TV shows I've ever seen. I'd much prefer my wife watch Bridgerton, which is the other show she subjects me to.
At least that one has some steamy sex scenes.

It doesn't suck at all. It was a great show and very well done.
My wife and I agree. My only complaint is that it could be confusing at times because they were constantly going back and forth from the present to the past and sometimes to the future. This past season (the final season) was losing steam, but that is typical of most series.

I have made fun of the previews for the show a handful of times On Hulu I think. I don’t know much else about the show.

If you think a show sucks why would you watch more than one episode?

One of the very few perks of being single is that I have been spared hours of my life that would be amounting into days, or worse, of being subjected to watching these kinds of shows...............

Never understood why these [scenes] are so marketable. 1. I'd rather go have sex with Mrs. Alaska then watch some randos in the middle of my show and 2. that's gotta be uncomfortable for people to film....I mean, unless it's porn, then everyone's naked, right?
