Critic Reviews for Gypsy Season 1

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (22)

Intended as an exploration of a middle-aged woman's unrestrained desires, the new series never elevates its drama to anything thematically challenging or narratively titillating.

Boring, boring, boring.

I'm not sure that Gypsy's somewhat antiquated feminist message -- is Rubin aware that Betty Friedan has been dead for a while now? -- works in a context in which her behaviour also dictates that she should be struck off.

The best shows make each character count, even if we only see them briefly. And yet "Gypsy" kept me engaged, as Jean drifts further and further into her secrets and lies.

Jun 28, 2017 | Full Review…

If I was the show's therapist, I'd suggest it stop taking itself so damn seriously.

Jun 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Artist-turned-director Sam Taylor-Johnson's melodramatic sensibilities are ideally suited to television, and the show is actually best when it embraces its most over-the-top moments.

Jul 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Not even Naomi Watts can save this show. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Gypsy is as hip and gorgeous as a new handbag from Barneys, and with all the psychobabble it sometimes feels just as empty, but Watts is terrific.

Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It's not prestige drama, but it's way too well acted and well filmed to be disregarded. It's not good, but it's fun.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Gypsy is a show that hints at mystery and intrigue, but it's content with leaving you in the tastefully decorated waiting room.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The bold hand the Netflix original show uses on its characters, depictions of sex and take on femininity and intercourse makes Gypsy ultimately a way deeper experience than 50 Shades Of Grey.

Jan 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The revelations of Gypsy are often shocking, even disturbing, yet I've personally become so accustomed to the over-the-top developments of modern prestige that I kept waiting for something even bigger to drop.

Audience Reviews for Gypsy: Season 1

    Bring this backkkkkk! Forget the absurdly over analytical critics. Clearly they lack the ability to accept or process a beautifully reckless tale of a layered, multi-chromatic, contradictory individual told through the lens of a woman. Oh I get it, men get to be messy on screen and women cannot, huh? Got it! This show was beautifully flawed in a way that is extremely compelling and expressive and indicative of desire and our unflawed human nature. Netflix, listen to the people! We want and NEED this! That ending was GLORIOUS!!!

    Me encanta el guión, la sensualidad, como aborda el tema tema de género. Me he quedado con todo las ganas de seguir viendo saber qué pasaría después. El último capítulo fue muy interesante. No entiendo porque Netflix no renovó la serie. La audiencia le gustó la serie y los críticos siempre serán críticos y algunos de ellos responden a sus intereses dentro de la industria

    I loved this show. Worst decision Netflix made on one of my shows that I enjoyed
  • Dec 16, 2019
    Just watched this for the second time through and it was as riveting as the first watch. I truly don't understand how it was cancelled. Critics seem to have hated it but the audience score here is high. I loved getting to see the narrative of a woman approaching her 50s and at that an extremely imperfect woman. We see men like this all the time (Madmen, Ozark, etc.) but rarely get a show centered on a woman approaching middle age who gets to misbehave and make bad choices yet still remain like able and worthy of a narrative. I also thought they did a great job portraying a bisexual narrative, which again is not often seen and done well. The shots are gorgeous, the acting phenomenal, it's incredibly well written, so perhaps it was too radical a show for those in charge who have been green lighting shows about middle aged straight white men for decades. I wish they'd Gypsy back.
