Critics Consensus

With its heart on its sleeve and style to spare, Hollywood is anything but subtle -- if only its good intentions were paired with a less convoluted story.

    It really was AWESOME!!! We both were born in the era when "movies were movies & women were women"...as my Irish Dad would say..LOL!!! So for me, this Neflix series was VERY cool, sad, & Hollywoody...with all the glitz & glamour of that era...we use to LOVE to go to the movies when we were kids...& to this day we still have our favs... GREAT escape & thought provoking for those of us who really DO care about others...& in hindsight watching this series..I kept going back to thinking.. wouldn't it have been WONDERFUL for everyone to be themselves..no matter their race, creed, color or sexual preferences?? Without all the lives that were ruined..tossed away like garbage..& expelled because??? Such a waste!! And that's putting it mildly....!!! And here we are..all these decades later...STILL trying to fit everyone into the "perfect" mold..of what we think..everyone should be..both off & on the silver screen... Sure DO hope their will be a season 2 & more...cuz I for one can haedly wait.. So, don't keep the fans of this series hangin' Ya all!!!! KUDOS to ALL who put this whole series together... TRULY WELL DONE!!! ALL THE BEST!!! C&J In the end..who really cares?!!! It IS THEIR lives...NOT ours to

    Old Hollywood glamor in its purest essence. A satire where the legends of cinema appear in their most naked form, analogically and literally. The staging is impeccable, flawlessly curated. Entertaining, romantic and many laughs and a little tears.

    Show is very fake and very woke. Nothing remotely like this would of happened in America in this time period. The actor who played Rock Hudson was annoying and can't act and they made his character a passive dummy. Most everything from Netflix is woke and all about "diversity and inclusion". Good storytelling and accuracy doesn't matter.

    I thought Hollywood was okay. The main problem with the show is that it comes off a bit preachy at times, and this could be fixed if the dialogue were a bit more subtle and less upfront. However I thought that the prostitution storyline was most entertaining. It seems like the people who worked on the show had had worked on storylines that include prostitution, and it shows because it's fun the way it is written. My favorite part of the acting was Laura Harrier's performance of Camille. She was cute and badass, and almost makes the show worth watching, because I kept rooting for her the whole time. 3 stars is my score.

    I thought this series was wonderful. I have hopes that we live all want a world of acceptance as to gender, race, & sexual orientation. To see this world play out in everyone's favor was simply marvelous. We'll done.

    Loved this series which is pure fantasy. The last episode reimagines how things might have been if people had been more progressive and history had been more inclusive than it actually was.

    Messy effort from Ryan, not worth your time.
  • Dec 22, 2021
    I loved the show. I would say it is a beautiful allegory picturing it all in an exaggerated way: sex to get a role, racism, homophobia, and the state of society back in the days. I loved the style, costumes, actors' play. They did a great job to bring in the old times acting standards, yet to mix it up with today's hunger for beautiful costumes, bright juicy scenery and drama. This series should be taken as a beautiful interpretation of Hollywood, it is pictured romantic to the extent that it all has a beautiful touch even such ugly things like forced sexual relationships, hatred based on race, gender, sexual orientation. In my opinion, this is what the team has done great job at: making it look so pretty and yet so resonating and sad. I had my eyes wet every time there would be a scene with an character being emotional. I'm sad to see the critiques this TV show has received, making me think that the critiques society is somewhat the same as the audience of the post-war time: homophobic, hypocritical, racist, misogynic.

    Loved it. Hilarious and serious simultaneously.

    Another wonderful creation of Ryan Murphy. Not surprised about the quality and the aesthtic part. Just on point as his shows always are. Funny, emotional and eye-catching
