finding joySome Joy but Not Much
Sunday October 11, 2020

There isn\'t a whole lot wrong with Finding Joy, but then there isn\'t a whole lot right with the series either. The first series aired about 2 years ago and with a mediocre beginning its strange to see the series return. Joy (Amy Huberman) has left the magazine job from the last season and is joined by her faithful side kick Stan (Paul Reid) and her best friend Trish (Hannah James-Scott) as Mother in need of some R&R. The rest of the cast largely seem to have been forgotten about, though in fairness I didn\'t watch the full series last time round so perhaps there are more characters from it in Season 2.
