    Would have been a 5 except for I HATE the beginning part where the guys says "striving for things not worth having" in every episode. So unneeded and that entire opening sequence after that, like what were they thinking!? Overall tho the show is great if you like Victorian dramas (I love them) it's only tiny bit "woke" but it's within the tolerable level (unlike most shows today) overall highly recommended!

    Excellent acting, anchored by Olivia Cooke, who steals every scene--even though her character is essentially unlovable. Struggling to find her place in a class-conscious world that values a fortunate birth over talent and ingenuity, Becky would be recognized today as a charming psychopath. She's manipulative, has no real emotional attachments, and only values people for what they can do for her.

    Moved me to tears, the realistic portrayal, character development, acting, every scene and/or supporting actor seemed essential. The plot towards the end, when the Major discovers Becky's infidelity was the only weak point where it felt a tad forced. Other than that, what a heartbreaking and perfect rendition of intertwined lives. Fantastic. Music score one of the best in years; my only contention is the original Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division should have been used.

    Olivia literally brings this show to life. I cannot imagine how this story would be any better without her spice.

    Set against the backdrop of the Napoleon War, Vanity Fair is one of Sunday nights best dramas. With a great ensemble cast and standout performances from Olivia Cooke and Tom Bateman, it makes it one hell of a show to watch. With lavish costumes and Gorgeous sets, it makes it one of my favourite dramas at the moment.

Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
