So far I like the story and find it interesting. The acting is pretty good, not spectacular. what I sincerely dislike, and have not decided yet if it's going to turn me off to the point where I just can't watch anymore is the Directing choice to use contemporary music and Guy Ritchie-esque camera work to tell this story. I's ridiculous, pretentious, distracting and so incredibly awkward it makes me embarrassed for the production team. I wish they would just Stop it! I don;t care how good a score this show has on rotten tomatoes or anywhere. I hope they just stop this and grow up already. Just tell the story and have confidence in the art your producing, it's good enough on its own without some DB trying to dress it up in a cheap imitation.
This show was a masterpiece in that it was a visual visual art form with quite unexpected writing and plot twists. The acting was superb and the story was extremely disturbing and sophisticated. Opinions are just that, opinions; and if one looks at the content of this series and bases their opinion of the execution of story and production value on the fact that a reviewer hates gruesome violence and serial killers, they're not going to "get" this show, at all. Everything about this series should be viewed as an art form and at the same time commentary of our Society. it's quite profound and deep. To understand the genius of this series better one must read the brilliant review of the series by Emily Nussbaum in The New Yorker.
How odd that 82% of regular people like Happyish yet the "official critics" panned it. Doesn't that say something about how critics are just people with the same measure of opinion as anyone? They just know how to write their opinions down on paper better than the average person and/or get jobs to do it.
Happyish is mostly great! The only criticism for me, is the fantasy alter-ego imagination that is thrown into each half hour episode. It takes away from the actual show and some episodes are reduced down to about only 15 minutes of great material. There are so many tragically comedic and ironically familiar scenes. great job Shalom A!!
some of the worst acting, writing and production all around. So much potential for such great stuff completely failed. Bring on The Expanse and fingers crossed that will be better. Killjoy is dead, please make it stop!
Pilot was fantastic!! The tension is palpable and Rami Malek is captivating. The anti-slick edge and rock steady filming style, along with making what's left of NYC's authentic personality a character in this show, adds to the atmosphere which I will be so bold to predict will build a solid following in the vein of The Walking Dead. Very hopeful start for something smart and thought provoking. As long as it doesn't drop it's momentum of good story arcs and true grit.
This show is hilarious! I love everything about it!
I can't get enough. This show is so silly and hilarious!! Please bring on Season 3!!!
This show is Hilarious! Thank goodness for that half hour once a week for 10 weeks.
The show is fantastic. It looks fantastic, the acting and direction and costume and production design....etc... everything about this show is fantastic. As a Book reader, I have my criticisms and it's difficult to see the show through the lens of a person who hasn't read the books, because I have and I'm a huge ASOIAF fangirl, but I also have a film background and I understand the challenges the show runners have to make this as good as the books and they do a pretty darn good job with the restrictions they have. I enjoy both separately now. So, yes, S05e01 was as good as it can get for the show, I think...even if there was a lot of "filler" stuff which I presume is set-up for what's to come and what's to come, as promised, is evidently quite different from the books. It is known.
worst trite crap out there and so many animals died to be costumes in this ridiculous twat of a show that's the pubescent version of history and a pathetic attempt to create an adaptation of the clothing of the time period it's trying to be.
totally fun. Very Fringe-ish!
looks like a big budget for a big production but when a series lacks depth, good dialogue and good acting all the money in the world can't make a series a great series, or even a good one. to wrap it up in one word...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ best describes this series. I'd rather watch Reign on the WB!
fantastic show with exceptional acting. When I watch this show I can't help thinking, THIS is the example of what good acting is and think about so many cheese ball shows, I DO like but recognize what trash those other shows are because the acting in those shows can not compare to the acting in a show like The Fall. I love GIllian Anderson and Jamie Dornan is something special.
I found it compelling enough to keep watching. It contains quality acting and a high production value. The story telling unusually works with it's cutting back and forth in time. I was surprised by the ending and that's unusual for me because I personally often can predict what's going to happen and I generally find comfort in that, but I was a bit disappointed by the inconclusive ending after finding out the unexpected twist. Tony could have been right, or was he?
this show rocks. no, it's not the most sophisticated acting, but the story is a fun creepy adventure of what the world could look like in 1oo or 200 yrs from now. or at least in an alternate HUnger games universe. it's always a fun ride
I'm sad this series is ending because how many shows carry such quick wit dialogue with real life issues that make viewers at least think about what's happening outside their homes far from their couches?
