I warn you — I am exhausted and highly caffeinated. It has made me really cranky about random things.
This is Allie Grant.
You may know her from her work on Weeds, and more recently for her work on Suburgatory. I think she’s a fantastic young actress. But I am annoyed. Really, really annoyed. Not with Allie Grant, but with whomever is writing for her.
Because on Weeds (and disclaimer, I’ve seen only maybe ten episodes) it seems like the bulk of what her character did was to react to a mom who tortured Allie’s character about her weight.
And now, in Suburgatory, she is … playing a girl who is tortured by a mom about her weight.
The girl’s talent is being totally wasted on another character whose main job is to hate herself. And that just SUCKS. Give her something more to work with! I promise you she’s up to the task.
I think I need to change out of my crankypants into something with an elastic waistband. All the better to nap in.
