Poster for Breeders: Season 1

FX's Breeders exposes the parental-paradox that it is possible, in the very same moment, to love your child to the horizon of the universe, while being apoplectically angry enough to want to send them there.

The death of a family pet, among other events, leads to an offbeat but earnest meditation on grief (and the bizarre forms it can take), making it clear that the writers are much more adept at exploring darkness with candor and a splash of whimsy than introducing hollow edge to the parenting sitcom.

Technically a comedy, but it hits so many pressure points so hard in such rapid succession that if you do laugh it will be through some quite considerable anxiety and pain. I mean that as a compliment.

In each of the episodes screened for this review, we see that even when the relationship is tested, a strong foundation of love remains. Each episode feels like a slice of life, complete with laughs, tears, sarcasm, and life’s mundane chores and routines.
