I did not think I was going to like it, but it is really well done. I thought it was going to be Real Housewives of Monterey with slightly better acting than the real Real Housewives, but it is much better than that. The acting is fantastic (except for Laura Dern, who I can't stand), and the set up is good towards something darker and deeper. It is funny enough to keep you interested in what is otherwise a pretty depressing underlying story. All the plotlines are pretty raw. Monterey looks freaking awesome. I have visited there, and didn't think it was that nice a city other than the waterfront. Turns out $900 thousand or $1 million will buy you a total scalito-box.
