AOL’s Soccer Mom Series Scores in Season 2

There is something both very familiar and very alien about the characters and the world of AOL's Little Women, Big Cars.We all know a group of soccer moms with a dynamic like the one depicted in this AOL scripted series. There's Meg (the supermom) and her cohorts Barbara (the feminist divorcée, played by Julie Warner), Rocky (the diva), and Connie (the diva's BFF). But through the eyes of outsiders, the world they inhabit is often perceived as small, driven by overprotective, neurotic tendencies.The Vuguru-produced Little Women invites the audience to experience that world's intricacies as a way to cast away any preconceived notions about the difficulties of being a mother while also gently poking fun at that sub-culture. However, despite the creators’ best intentions, the shallowness with which the show treated that world in its first season disappoints; the potential is there, but often falls flat.
