"I should've really followed my first instinct, from over a year ago...; I'm just not that interested in the Hollywood lifestyle of the 60s & 70s. I didn't feel any connection with this show, not with the story nor with the characters. Even though I really like the great Jessica Lange. And I thought Sarandon's performance was very good. "

"Quite overrated overall. But the last episode was sublime and convinced me that it was an above average Netflix show. I wish we saw more of Isla Johnston and Moses Ingram though, they were both really solid and interesting characters. Anya did manage to pull a rather satisfying performance around the mid-series. She was much more confortable playing an alcoholic young adult than a troubled teenager. 60's wardrobe and decor was on point. "

"The worst of both Netflix and coming-of-age movies' universes. Leah Lewis gave me a bit of hope for a sinking ship, but there were just so many scenes that: were forced, lacked authenticity or/and were poorly acted. Should've followed my instincts. "

"Couldn't stomach more than 2 episodes. Poor acting and visual effects have done it for me. But still, despite all the dithyrambic (but probably fake) reviews on imdb, I didn't expect much of an Egyptian fantasy TV show on Netflix."

"A painfully Eisenbergesque movie. A very slow, not that I usually mind, dark comedy. Casey's character development was quite weak, sometimes off, throughout the movie. But they somehow managed to win me over on the last act, which I quite enjoyed. The overall weird atmosphere kept me interested. "

"An extremely predictable and forgettable rom-com. I still have a hard time enjoying Jack Quaid's acting qualities. If he has any. But boy was I surprised by how good Maya Erskine was in this. She was the highlight of the first half of the movie. Before the charm, quirkiness and witiness of her character faded away as the film went on. "
