Lucy Liu Rules So Watch If Only For Her
31 August 2019 | by davidsaskSee all my reviews

I enjoy 2 of the decades settings, however the earliest of them, the 60's does nothing for me and takes me out of the show. Fast Forward For Me. Not fond of the female actor in that role either.

The 80's story is straight up robbed from creator's own show Desperate Housewives, Will know similarities asap when see if followed that show. Lucy for the 80's is everything!

The most current now story is sadly not breaking any new boundaries which is a shame. There is so much can be written from today's times. However 2 episodes along hopeful to see such occur. Thus far 2019 shown until now could have been based in 90's or early 2000's. I would have loved to have seen adding a fourth generation in the mix, or skipping the 60's I dislike. I do enjoy the male in current story arc..

The sets are beautiful and everything so great color wise. It really jumps out at ya in HD which wasn't an option for Desperate Housewives back in the day. If I were to take a guess, the music from the show is from same person from DH as well. Not complaining there, I instantly noticed it, not sure if others will as well.

All in all thus far am sold on watching week to week. Doesn't everyone want to know how title of show works into the stories? I hope with that said, all is wrapped up with season one, if second season, things shaken up. 7/10
