<i>Enlightened</i>: Meditate Elsewhere

In Mike White's new half-hour indie movie-esque Enlightened, Laura Dern stars as Amy Jellicoe, a former corporate woman who has a traumatic breakdown at work, and is now trying to piece her life together after a stint in rehab.

But after being disappointed by the pilot and trying again with the next two episodes, I'm closing the book on this one and moving on to more calming places myself.
