    The best Ryan Murphy has delivered so far.

    It's pretty much bad

    A masterful interpretation that hits the mark I can say that this wonderful series: Feud, is amazing, it's a mixture of ugly rumors and infamous manipulations, a look at the dark undersides of celebrity culture and the depression that follows the update. spotlight deviation. The great strength of this series is also due to the masterful interpretation of their two stars that is Jessica Lange (Joan Crawford) and Susan Sarandon Bette Davis), they are both formidable and we discover a Hollywood universe that many did not suspect, and yes the star-mania of those times was very real and is particularly well represented in this series. I will never hide that one of the strong points of each series or film, is a successful part, when one finds genius in the interpretation of the role (s), of course the script and the realization must not be lacking, but without good performers a good series can easily get lost on the way. Anyway, here everything was present and that makes and will make a great biographical, dramatic series, to be discovered especially for its wonderful interpretation.

    I knew this would be genius because I love everything Ryan Murphy writes ! And I'm also a fan of Jessica Lang, & those two together create magic !! Lange takes the defining role of her amazing career here and Joan Crawford! She makes us love and root for her all while hating her lol she did what mommy dearest did not. She made Joan Crawford human again! She's not just a sassy bitch with sharp edged one liners. No. We get to see all the terrible pain & trauma that made her that way and in an instant you want to see her finally win just once in life! Brava Lange ! Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis is just as delicious to watch and those two together are fun but Lange steals the show hands down! She's a Drama Goddess the way she brings these characters to life! & don't sleep on mamacita! She's a joy too and definitely should have gotten an Emmy as Lange/Crawford's left & right hand woman ! Her just as sassy & sharp tongued housekeeper/assistant. Murphy surprisingly developed her role into a character with much more depth than just a housekeeper. She is essential to Crawford's life.

    Feud Bette and Joan, is an absolute jewel. I loved this series, so intriguing, so visually stunning. It takes you back to the true golden ages of Hollywood. The story of these women is so fascinating and interesting. The acting is beyond amazing, especially the performances by Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. Furthermore, because of the fabulous acted personalities by Lange and Sarandon, I grew sympathy towards Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, even when they were messing with each other. I give this series a definite recommend and 5/5 stars. I cannot wait for the next season.

    Terrible for women! A sorry imitation of the reality that may have gone before. It makes the women seem wholly primitive and dumb - somewhere between spoilt babies and cattle - obsessed with petty fights and their image, while the men look after everything. This show thinks it is so clever, bringing up hot topics and utilising significant screen talent, but both are in reality banal. There is nothing here, just a bad representation of female talent and women.

    I watched this entire season in one day and can see why it has so many nominations. The examination of the hollywood industry and deconstruction of studios, gossip columnists, executives and stars seems rather topical given current headlines. It also highlights how misogyny, sexual discrimination, gender politics and the exploitation and manipulation of people to increase the bottom line despite the personal consequences is just as relevant today as it was back then. The finale is heartwrenching and even days after I have seen the series many of the moments within the series still linger with me.

    Puntaje Original: 7.0 Brillantes actuaciones del reparto en general, en especial por Susan Sarandon (y no quiero provocar enemistades). Con una mirada profunda e introspectiva a las ambiciones y sueños humanos, Feud puede resultar tanto inspirador, divertido, intrigante y reflexivo para las audiencias.
