Oddly uncomfortable
29 June 2018 | by ian-864See all my reviews

It's telling that I turned to my wife and said "I get the impression this show about the 70s was written by someone who didn't experience it" and the first review I saw said exactly the same thing. I don't remember 70s women being anything like as oppressed as the characters in this show. On the contrary, there were iconic strong women role models. Charlie's Angels, The Bionic Woman even the Fall Guy for goodness sake, had women equal or better than their male co-stars, kicking ass and taking names.

OK so that's just TV, but this show portrays men having a disdain for women that just isn't accurate. Feminism was alive and well in the 70s but without the anti-men slant that it has now.

So in summary, I felt the show wanted to push an agenda rather than take me back in time to watch a slice of someone's life. The acting was ok, but given the experience of the actors, that's disappointing. They are capable of much more.

I think I'm out.
