The Other F Word & #SpreadTheKindness Link Up #42

You all probably know by now that I attended the Forever Fierce Meet Up at Chico’s in New York City on October 7. You can read all about that event here. So many fabulous women came together that day on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to represent the Midlife Revolution which was founded by the beautiful and brilliant Catherine Grace O’Connell. But today’s post is not about this powerful movement. And it’s not about the meet up event either. Rather, this post is about an amazingly talented woman whom I met that day.

Her name is Caytha Jentis. She is the Creator, Writer, and Director of the Amazon series The Other F Word.

I have to say that I don’t know all that much about Caytha as I only met her for a few brief moments. What I could discern from those few moments, however, is this…she is extremely outgoing, well-spoken, relatable, funny, and very passionate about her work. Her talent became evident when I began watching Season 1 of The Other F Word. With a fervor for making the midlife struggle for women everywhere a thing to be embraced rather than hidden away, she has created a series that will make you laugh, cry, wonder, debate, and feel completely and totally normal as you find your way through the craziness of these midlife years.

The Cast of The Other F Word

The Other F Word follows the lives of four women in the New York City area who find themselves dealing with empty nests, separation from loved ones, death, and that age old issue of rediscovering themselves at this ever so confusing period of life. This midlife period, which begins for many women in their Fifties (hence, the other F word), presents a struggle that I would venture to say none of us anticipated in our Twenties or early Thirties. As a woman in my Forties, I am finding many of the issues addressed in this series to be quite relevant to my life. And even those that may not yet be relevant, I can see the future in this hilariously real and raw production.

Season 1 is presented in 8 episodes with a run time of anywhere from 4 to 13 minutes each. I actually really enjoyed the brevity of each episode since I could very realistically complete watching one episode before the endless interruptions of children and every day life take over. Season 2, which just premiered on Friday, October 13, consists of 6 episodes, each with a run time of just under 20 minutes.

The Cast of The Other F Word

I actually am glad that I was only recently introduced to this series because I did not have to wait for the Season 2 release upon completion of Season 1. The conclusion of Season 1 left me anxiously wondering what will happen next. Are these wonderfully confused and tormented characters going to explore the darker sides of their desires or will they remain faithfully loyal to the path they chose decades ago? Well, I have embarked on Season 2 and I will not answer this question for you. You will have to take a brief moment out of your own very busy schedules and watch an episode or two to see if the story pulls you in as it did me.

If you need to laugh your way through the midlife struggle, shed a few tears, or just feel a level of normalcy amidst the most foreign feelings in the world, then I highly recommend that you take a little peak into the lives of these four brilliantly cast characters! View it on Amazon right here.

And now onto your favorite posts from last week’s link up!

And Chrissy of Granola and Grace shared another boho inspired outfit in her post Give Me All The Spanish Moss. I am loving Chrissy’s fringed kimono! And doesn’t she have the biggest, brightest, most contagious smile?!

  13. I just turned 40, so I am trying to adjust to being labeled as one in my ‘midlife’ now… so, I am sure I can find lots to relate to in this series! It is so neat to meet new people that are inspiring to us!

    • Carrie, I think you will really enjoy this show! You should definitely check it out! And I don’t think you need to define yourself as midlife at 40 if you don’t feel like you are in midlife! I think we all reach “midlife” at different ages.

  21. Wow Shelbee! I love this post! I’ll have to check out this series. I’m telling you, the forties are a real shock to the system, and I bet the 50’s are even crazier. I know I felt different (and not in a good way) around 43! Sometimes I feel like my brain left my body…my memory is so terrible! LOL

    • Julie, thanks so much for reading this post! And I hear you on the memory thing! My arsenal of memories just keeps shrinking over time. It’s terrible! This show is so relevant. I think you will love it!

  22. Shelbee, thank you for the shout out and the sweet compliments. Truly it makes a girl feel good, which I know is exactly what you’re going for in your spread the kindness link ups. 😉 Now let’s talk about how much I love that you were able to go to New York, deepen friendships and meet new folks! So cool! And a show that has episodes in 13 minute lengths? That alone makes me curious. As always, thank you for hosting and busting your bootie in the blog world.

    • Aw, Chrissy! You are too sweet! And as always, it is my pleasure to feature my fabulous blogger friends. NYC was such an amazing experience, for sure. To be in the company of so many empowering women was just magnificent! Thanks so much for all of your support.

      xoxo

    • Thanks so much for reading, Sheree! It really is a an amazing series and so relatable for to me as a woman in my 40’s. Although my children are younger than the children in the series, it gives me an accurate glimpse into the future!
