Finding it hard to empathise with the maid in Maid because she just repeatedly does dumb stuff. Some is because she’s new to it or a first timer, but most of the time she’s making inexplicably stupid decisions. Plus the magical negro trope.


One thing that’s bleeding obvious in Maid is that childcare and social support in the US is a complete disaster. Can’t fault what’s her name for that.

Here in Aotearoa we have the “20 hours ECE” which is brilliant.
