Rating: 7

Life in Seattle is anything but normal for Bee (short for Balakrishna) whose parents are Elgin Branch, a Microsoft vice-president with the fourth-most-watched TED talk, and the titular Bernadette Fox, a MacArthur Genius grant honoree and famous architect who dropped out of view when she moved from LA to Seattle. Increasingly reliant on her virtual assistant Manjula, things begin spiraling out of control as she tries to deal with the parents at the Galer Street School that Bee attends and plan a trip to Antarctica. Then, she pulls her second disappearing act.
