Disappointed
21 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to this after seeing the trailer. I really enjoyed The Deuce, and was looking forward to another stylish '70s show, and excited to see Alicia Silverstone in something other than a small part in an indie movie. Style is all this show has. The production design, costumes and hair are great but that's where it ends, unfortunately. Within a few minutes I was rolling my eyes. And that kept happening. The dialogue is terrible. They really don't want to leave anything to the imagination and spell out and show everything in pain-staking detail. This really is no Fargo with storytelling in subtleties. More like a hammer to the head. I get it, you're trying to convey that woman don't have all the options they have now. Got it. I really got the sense this was written by someone born in the '90s who has NO reference to the '70s and Goggled, "70s pop culture," and was sure to throw in a pop culture word in randomly here and there, making no sense at all, and not seeming to have any idea what they were referencing. This same person(s) also seems to be a big fan of Mad Men because they've got their eras mixed up in the culture for women, the divorce rate, and that they're always drinking cocktails. The '70s were pretty bucolic, especially for wealthy people. And if they'd bothered to do research for more than 5 minutes they could have seen the countless resources about the working class types, trying to move up in the world and having their family to lean on. Frankly, I didn't get the sense they watched anything from the '70s or ever experienced anything remotely close. If they did, maybe they should get checked out for dementia. I sensed a little Dynasty in there too, which, again, wrong era.

Also, the acting is bad. Basically, an extremely heavy-handed, poorly written, badly acted TV show that looks cool. Mena Suvari looked good. It's good to see her again. That's about the only other positive thing I can think of. If they fire all the writers, 'cause not a moment of the writing was good, fire the casting director, get a new director to get better work out of the three leads, maybe it would work. Too bad. Only production seems to have it together on this show.

*I just looked up the creator, writer, director. The majority of the show is done by two men. Seriously. One of the two is from England. Fairly ironic that the whole premise is about women being controlled by men, not able to think or act for themselves, and the show is done by two DUDES! I would say I'm surprised but I'm really not. The director not only doesn't know what it's like to be a woman but he was born in England in 1972 so what the heck does he know about the '70s in Beverly Hills, CA, and I can tell you his "improvising" isn't working. Alicia, Mena, and the other lead should get a refund on this BS. I can't tell you how sick I am of movies or TV about women empowerment written/directed by men who have no idea what they're talking about and are cranking out drivel they wrote at Starbucks in an afternoon. Probably just like that Michelle Wolfe skit where the show was originally written about men and the studio said, "You gotta make it about chicks. The networks are breathing down our necks about wanting diversity, or some garbage. Just change it up a little and we need the pilot script by tomorrow."
