For a self-contained story, the ending of "Fletcher" is shockingly abrupt and open-ended. It's a hard trick to pull off, and Perotta does it beautifully. The limited series is refreshingly succinct and poignant throughout.
"Mrs. Fletcher" is filled with funny and awkward scenes in which the lead character has her world greatly opened, but it is perhaps more memorable (and more unique) as a show about a young man who finds the world is shutting him out.
All together, Mrs. Fletcher is a good story that could have been so much better had they added a few more episodes to properly wrap up the story. As it is, this works mainly as a showcase for Kathryn Hahn to get a lot more leading roles.
But for all of [Kathryn] Hahn's tremendous skill, her presence isn't enough to paper over the cracks in the series itself, which struggles to find anything bold or new to say about women's sexuality or coming of age later in life.
