A southern family deals with their relationship issues.

It seems unnatural and forced that any of the crucial confrontations happen at all. It's like everyone has appointed themselves to be every else's therapist. Otherwise, it does pretty well. Southern Melodrama has zero draw for me, but this held my interest.
