Physical: Season 1

Rose Byrne leads this dark comedy series as a woman in the 1980s who breaks free from housewife duties by crushing the world of aerobics.

Sheila Rubin is a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife supporting her smart but controversial husband’s bid for state assembly. But behind closed doors, she has her own darkly funny take on life; she’s battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image… that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.

Byrne keeps it watchable, but the story is a sour mess.
