News & Interviews for Pose: Season 1
Pose is aspirational and celebratory -- and in pursuit of that, a little anachronistic, importing to the New York of 30 years ago all the trans commitment of today. Never mind. This is, after all a study in the lives of the saints, set to disco.
Elektra's arc [...] was one of the most beautiful stories I watched on TV this year.
As queer scholar Jeanne Vaccaro half-joked recently to a friend of mine, Pose is "Paris Is Burning meets 7th Heaven." And why shouldn't it be?
The great thing about Pose isn't that it does the singular thing it does with any restraint. It's that, finally, in 2018, it's got the chance to do the singular thing it does, at all.
Invigorating or emotionally affecting at its best, it's also clunky and rote-like with unbecoming frequency.
The most exciting aspect of the show is the fresh faces that populate it.
This revolutionary LGBTQ show about New York's 1980s ballroom scene slays in every category.
'Pose' is one of the most exciting and campy depictions of the LGBT community, specifically drag ball culture. 'Pose' is not just another show that features queer people but is instead a whole new world to explore and understand.
A tale of drag-ball culturalism with greater, wider stories of the moment embracing money, gender, politics, race and sexuality in one epic package.
Pose delivers a fabulous look at 80s ball culture while breaking ground for trans women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community as a whole.
The result is still too corny to qualify as great drama. But as a rich slice of glossy soap opera, it's right up there.
Audience Reviews for Pose: Season 1
22h agoThere is representation in the main cast, that should be something that every LGBT series should have because there is a lot of LGBT actors that aren't given a chance. Pose it's good for something that should be normal.
Jun 10, 2021I LOVE this show. I 100% recommed. Everyone should watch this. It's beautiful, it's raw, real, even funny at times, and most of all it's inspiring. It reminds you that family doesn't have to be blood related. It gives you a unique look into the LGBTQIA+ community and the struggles that were faced in the 80's and early 90's in the name of just being who you are. This is a must-watch. Especially now, since it's Pride Month! 🏳️🌈 Don't forget that Pride began as a riot ✊🏼
May 13, 2021I can best describe it as a show that teaches you love as an infinite phenomenon; as it allows you to love yourself, each character, and every single artist who has worked and continues to work on the project.
Apr 25, 2021'Pose' is possibly one of the freshest television series we have been provided with in quite sometime. Telling stories that deserve recognition while also giving off great messages about the struggles within the LGBTQ+ community, especially those dealing with the transgender community, along with giving the spotlight to the original inventors of ball culture. No time during season one will audiences feel bored or predict anything that is coming their way. Every cast member pops on screen with their best performances. 'Pose' truly is a special work of art, and my hope is that everyone takes the time to experience it.
Mar 12, 2021An amazing series, where you will NOT regret one episode being around 60 minutes. This made me laugh, made me cry - tears of happiness. It is a masterpiece itself and people who are hating on this rarity got no joy in life nor culture they could say they belong to. Love the story, love the music, love the fashion.. and mostly the representation this got for queer kids and ESPECIALLY the representation for black kids - queer or straight, cis or trans .. this will get your ass up and motivate you in your life like nothing else.
Jan 25, 2021Sappy, trite and formulaic, Pose offers a sanitized retro peek into 80's New York City "ballroom" life. Rather than portraying the gritty essence of a marginalized community building its own culture while being torn down by AIDS, Netflix went for a lighter touch. Pose feels as though it was written by a high school's gay-straight alliance and aired as an after school special in blue states. The predictable dialogue and cliched performances teeters on tween soap opera and does nothing to keep it real. Fortunately vogue ballroom is forever preserved on celluloid in "Paris is Burning", a must see documentary of factualness. But if you like your revisionist pop culture dummied down and scrubbed up, then Pose may strike you.
Dec 28, 2020Amazing...!!! This show took me back to a time ... I laughed, I cried, I snapped my fingers and I rewound so many times that it took me close to 2hrs to watch a single episode ... The music was spot on... 👍
Oct 06, 2020Absolutely wonderful. Captivating and moving, you can feel the energy, wether good or bad, in each scene.
Sep 20, 2020Loved Elektra & Angel's storylines
