The series never shies away from uncomfortable topics, joyful characters still confronting trauma, exploring sexuality, and recovering from addictions. Even Lydia has her own set of flaws that she must contend with all four seasons. With the benefit of an amazing performance by Moreno, Lydia walks a tightrope of comic relief and tragedy.
