One Mississippi is a dramedy series created by Tig Notaro and Diablo Cody for Amazon Studios. The show is loosely based on Tig Notaro's life and follows her character Tig Bavaro, a radio host, as she returns to her hometown in Mississippi to attend to her mother's death. Throughout the series, the viewers follow Tig's life as she navigates the grief of losing her mother, her struggles with her health, her complicated relationship with her family, and her journey of self-discovery.

The show was praised for its authentic portrayal of grief, loss, and trauma. Tig Notaro's character is an open book, and the viewers get to experience every raw and vulnerable emotion that she goes through. As Tig begins to process her mother's death, she's forced to confront her past trauma, including a traumatic incident of losing her first love, Brooke, to a sudden illness. The show deals with Tig's grief, mental health, and sexuality with sensitivity and depth, and the character's journey of healing and acceptance is a significant theme throughout the series.

One Mississippi also explores the cultural and social dynamics of life in the south. The show's unique perspective on the culture and traditions of Mississippi provides a refreshing and insightful look at life in the small town. Tig's family, which consists of her stepfather Bill, her brother Remy, and her mother's friend and housekeeper, Felicia, are all complex and dynamic characters that add to the show's richness. Casey Wilson's character Brooke, who is based on Tig's real-life girlfriend Stephanie Allynne, is also a significant part of the show's narrative.

In addition to Tig's personal struggles, the show also touches on broader social issues such as racism, homophobia, and sexism. Tig's stepfather, Bill, who is a conservative radio host, represents the traditional beliefs of Mississippi's society, and his struggle to accept Tig's sexuality and political views creates a compelling conflict. The ongoing battle between Tig and Bill highlights the generational divide between the traditional south and the changing global culture.

The show's casting is top-notch, and Tig Notaro's performance is a standout. The comedian is not known for her acting ability, but she delivers a subtle and nuanced performance that showcases her range as an artist. Casey Wilson, Noah Harpster, John Rothman, and the rest of the supporting cast deliver equally strong performances that add to the show's charm and depth.

The show's visual style is also noteworthy. The cinematography is beautiful, and the natural landscapes of Mississippi are used to great effect. The show's color palette and framing add to the themes of grief and healing, and the directors' attention to detail creates a visually stunning experience.

Overall, One Mississippi is a show that excels in every aspect. It's a deeply personal story that deals with grief and trauma with sensitivity, humor, and authenticity. The show's exploration of southern culture and social issues adds to its richness, and the performances and visual style make it a cinematic experience. It's a show that leaves a lasting impression, and its legacy will continue to be felt for years to come.
