Was intriguing ... but ran out of steam by episode 5.
21 June 2021 | by mandreasen2001See all my reviews

Was intriguing at first but then went nowhere fast.

As the episodes pile up so do the clichés. Every subsequent chance meeting between Tom & Jessie was shoehorned and contrived conveniently to time with the next cliff hanger misunderstanding.

Jessie is a likable enough character who devolves into a whining poor woman's Carrie Bradshaw slash William Thacker as the show devolves into a slow paced Gen Z Notting Hill wannabe episodic. The roles have been just slightly tweaked from Notting Hill to be considered a homage and not plagiarism as Tom (Nikeish Patel) takes on the famous actor amongst the "normal" folk characters.

I adore Rose Matafeo. She is captivating. Has a charm and charisma that is unique but ultimately her own material let's her down. Nikeish Patel is likable but after episode two he does not seem capable as a top level megastar.

The show deserves a second season to correct it's own mistakes and take the dramady to the next level, where Tom and Jessie prove they can take the next steps into adulthood.

I like that Tom may be less capable and mature than he originally put forth. The writers could use this as a dynamic struggle that leads to more internal conflict between Tom the reluctant movie star and Tom the serious actor.

I also like when Rose Matafeo took less than conventional chances with the characters. She too has so much evergreen space to expand the narrative of sudden fame and the struggle of two young lovers as they navigate the trappings of "Hollywood" as they struggle to maintain as mature as productive members of society.

Sophomore season will make or break this very intriguing yet so far flawed series.
