Critic Reviews for The Other Woman

This was an odd and confounding episode of television, beginning to end. I can't wait for next week.

That scene of Jessica Lange in that RIDICULOUSLY fabulous caftan with Judy Davis in that straight-up ridiculous hat may just be our favorite costume moment of the year.

The cease-fire only lasted about as long as it took either actress to finish off a vodka rocks.

As a general rule, the score for Feud is as over the top as literally everything else about this show, but the music that accompanies Joan's look of rage here would be a little much for even the shlockiest horror film. This is not to say I dislike it.

Feud, as far as the second episode goes at least, gets inside its head so much that it forgets the innate fun of its concept and leaves the cast who are pretty much down for anything, adrift.

I don't need biopics to hew to the truth entirely, but Feud is still struggling with showing who these women were as artists or people.

Blondell and de Havilland have a revealing exchange, echoing one of Crawford's lines from the pilot, when she says to Hedda that men may have created the pedestal for women but it's women who "keep chipping away at it."

Feud: Bette and Joan is improving, and I only hope to throw more compliments with each week, but it still feels weirdly empty.

FEUD is superb, but damn, is it painful to watch. There are too many missed opportunities between these women, and the what-ifs are crazy.

Finally, we get another dose of Sally Draper: Here she is again as Bette's daughter, B.D., flirting with the crew and furiously pushing back when Bette promises to pack her off to Maine for the summer.
