    So unique! If you liked Desperate Housewives, you'll like this. Marc Cherry strikes again!
  • Oct 13, 2021
    Funny, clever, entertaining. And the CAST is FAB

    Love the 80's and 60's! But the modern one was just a drag to watch, i ended up skipping ahead everytime it was on.
  • Jul 25, 2021
    I really enjoyed this show, from the costumes, setting and music to the excellent performances from all the actors. I got hooked from the first episode and HAD to keep watching. For me it was the 80's storyline, with Lucy Liu and Jack Davenport, that really got to me (I love a good friendship-story), but every time line had its own brilliance. It's funny, suspenseful and heartbreaking. Like a good book, you can't wait to know how it ends, but at the same time you want it to never end because your just having too much fun with all of the characters.

    an interesting kind of presentation! three simultaneous storylines, each well-written on their own. I loved it and I think you might too

    eu amo essa série, é uma das minhas favoritas

    This has to be the best show I've possibly ever seen. I don't know what it is but this show grew on me SO fast. The character development was fantastic and the mix of comedy and drama was great. The 3 different stories was a brilliant idea and is really what got me into loving this show. The 60's story had to be my favorite but the other two were also fantastic. I loved to see how they shined a light on the deadly disease AIDS and how it effected Carl. The constant tension with all sudden, out of the blue plot twists with Bethan and Taylor. The last 15 minutes of the season finale was crazy and so tense but amazing put together. The way all the stories came together was awesome and I was really glad they did it. I don't know if anyone will freak out as hard as I did. It was a crazy season but it binged through the whole thing. Can't wait to start season 2!!

    A unique take on a show like this. Funny, interesting and well shot.

    I binge watched it and I rarely watch television. It was light and suspenseful, but also heart-tugging at times.
