    Gilbert seems like the one you'd most like the one you'd like to have in your actual mom's group. The others, not so much. [15 Nov 2010, p.43]

    If you don't have a support group of pals to compare notes with, you could do worse than The Talk. Let's hope it stays lively.

    This mommy-answer to "The View" is a somewhat dumbed-down version of that show except here the panel--Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert and Marissa Jaret Winokur--discuss traditional "women's topics," i.e. kids, cooking and such.

    Like "The View," The Talk was an hour of plastic blatherers pretending to be a microcosm of American women.

    A clumsily obvious rip-off of the Barbara Walters sensation "The View."
  6. Unlike "The View," there were no topical references--the show could have been filmed five years ago for all its relevance--unless you count the moment Osbourne turned a vague discussion of divorce law reform into a rant against cyberbullying.
