Oh, Patty! You've done it again!
22 March 2019 | by amandaglarkinSee all my reviews

This show is absolutely FANTASTIC! I had goosebumps pretty much the entire way through the first episode. It's shot beautifully and the acting is incredible. Joey King is indistinguishable from the real Gypsy, and Patricia Arquette is a revelation! God, I love that woman.

The only thing I don't like about it is that it isn't bingeable! Come on, Hulu! Gives us what we want!!!
