Absolutely. I’m not sure I would go as far as terrible, however she’s certainly not winning “parent of the year”. But it also doesn’t change the fact that this was not one of the primary criticisms of Don Draper or Walter White who were similarly, single-mindedly ambitious. https://t.co/a1Q3GXCtyH— Rachel Brosnahan (@RachelBros) February 10, 2019
She definitely is. But her life as a mother is not the primary focus of our story. https://t.co/aQ2wdvKGem— Rachel Brosnahan (@RachelBros) February 10, 2019

You saw them for 2 seconds when they arrived at the Catskills and that’s it. They’re an afterthought. She has no interest in being a parent so why have her be one? It makes her less likeable. Would have been more interesting to have them later.— Leslie Lang (@froglette1969) February 9, 2019
Being likeable is for tweets. Women are complex creatures. We got a lot to do in a short amount of time on Earth. Now go write your book.🎈 https://t.co/V0QJInzTJd— Alex Borstein (@AlexBorstein) February 9, 2019
