In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Obviously aimed at the American market (who love this type of thing!) this made for TV trash is a dismal attempt to chronicle the lives of Fergie and Princess Diana (mostly the former) through their relationships in the 80s, their marriage break ups and their heartbreak and turmoil being a member of the British royal family.
The whole thing has a whiff of an amateur production with some of the worst performances I've seen in a long time. You have to see Nicola Formby's 'Diana' to believe it. She's is about as charismatic as a wet fish, and wooden to boot. There's hilarious narration from a hack who has followed their story from the start, and we jump years from one 'juicy' story to the next with a few lines about what happened in between. Everything is tabloid trash, so there isn't anything we don't know already, and the 'impersonations' are ridiculous. There's always someone around to drop a name or two, otherwise it would be hard to work who's who.
Totally awful in every way. It has it's so-bad-it's-good moments, but not enough to spare you from the tedium. How anyone could have taken this story and made it this dull is beyond me!
