Joan/Bette are portrayed absolutely amazing in this, the both of them. Ppl should watch B4 just dismissing. Much more than 'justice' done in this great look back at Hollywood royalty!
Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange gave us almost perfect performances, loved the both of them completely. The ambience of old Hollywood made me fall in love with the series, the costumes, hair and make-up were gorgeous.
great acting, but even with the writers' efforts the story is not that interesting nothing but hollywood gossip that no one gives a shit anymore turned into a series with great production and cast nice to watch it tho
The last episode is heartbreaking. 最后一集太扎心……另外看了下最后为Bette Davis画肖像的基佬果然是Christopher Isherwood的男友Don Bachardy【
back when actresses chewed the scenery and feuds were legendary and this show didnt disappoint!
I found this series really hard to watch. I found it tragically sad, and distracting, and too busy trying to stuff every detail/gossip about the lives of each of these women into the point of time around filming of WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE. And it's hard for me to decide whether its the quality of the series or the content of the series that left me so disturbed. Let's see if I can break it down. Acting: Susan Sarandon is a great actress and I feel she worked hard to capture the woman behind the image, as did Jesssica Lange, but, this series failed miserably in evoking the recognizable iconic images of Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, or even Olivia de Havilland or Joan Blondelle. Jessica Lange is a beautiful woman - Joan Crawford was a reknown beauty, but the make up department created a hideous mess. So there was always a visual dissonance for me. Writing: Just as I abhorred Crawford's and Davis's daughters' tell-all books that capitalize on their mothers' fame for their own gain, this script reeked of the same disease - scrapping together gossip and conjecture to sell a pitch. They threw everything into the pot leaving me sick with distaste for the whole mess. Themes: the cesspool under the glitter of Hollywood, the abasement of women in the promotion of stardom where people are property, the powerlessness of women, the fuelling of hatred between people, the manipulation of insecurities of the artist, and, even, the prostitution of art for the sake of a buck. I guess I didn't like the construct or the content, and the best I would give this series is a 4 (poor) out of 10. Sorry, Emmys. I think the work of these performers deserve recognition, but not for this series. [DRAMA]
Ok, I admit I have not watched this show. But as a classic movie lover I do not think I could. No actor today could not come off as strong as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. If you have ever seen Joan Crawford in Mildred Pierce or Bette Davis in Dark Voyager you know what I mean. Also some of the actors they have playing some of the actors of their time. Kathy Bates does not seem like she is anything like Joan Blondell. But maybe that is why it is called acting. Todays Hollywood does not have the class or ability they had then.
Don’t know about you, but since the lockdown, I have had more free time than ever. Maybe it’s because we did not actually realize how much time we were wasting. So the other day, whilst I was pouring myself a glass of wine, I remembered how much I love and missed genre “Fantasy”. It was my favorite genre since growing up, maybe because I was too much into Avatar, but yeah I miss it. So today let’s talk about best fantasy TV shows.
I remember watching a lot of “Pokémon”, “Digimon”, “Dragon Ball Z” etc. when I was growing up. Little did I know back then, I wasn’t watching cartoons but animes. Even now that I’m all grown up, I still enjoy watching them. There are many more genres to choose from and it’s always so full of action. The music in it is so great, you’ll definitely find yourself listening to songs long after you’ve finished watching.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.
But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…
I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
