I do like Kristen Wiig. Should be funny.

When Mindy Cohn appeared, it reached a level of gayness that surpassed Fellow Travelers.

The is like if a gay gift shop became sentient.

I love it to death.

I remember an old Letterman cutaway joke from when The Mirror Has Two Faces came out and he cut to a shot of theater seats in which every seat was occupied by Richard Simmons, cackling with joy.

This is that gay.

More like a comedy version of Capote vs. the Swans, r21.

I will watch the shit out of this, but it is weird how TV shows these days are becoming more and more about the Lifestyles of the Rich and Exclusive.

Ricky Martin looks incredible. He is such a handsome man.

The gay quotient would break all communication networks.

So Josh Lucas is a pilot? I'm in.

by Anonymousreply 24February 6, 2024 4:24 PM

Lucas must be a kept boytoy of one of the women, because there is no way a pilot could afford to hangout with these people. No one from that class would take up a day job like that in 1960 or even today.

The King of the Netherlands like to fly for KLM, but that's more of a rich kid with a hobby situation.

Given this is a period piece, Wiig’s character should be played by an over the hill 35-year-old.

Leslie Bibb reminds me of GCB. That was a good show.

The trailer doesn't indicate whether it has any straight male characters.

It has many straight male husbands to these tiring caricature one-dimensional rich bitches who run charity events.

Will not watch due to nepo baby of Cindy Crawford. Plenty of actual actors who’s parents aren’t besties with George Clooney.

by Anonymousreply 41April 6, 2024 6:12 AM

The Crawford spawn seems incidental - it's the rest of the cast that looks like an absolute hoot.

Allison Janney - Carol Burnett - Kristin Wiig - it looks really fun. I'm going to watch it.

I’m happy that this story really goes somewhere. I thought it would be 100% about getting into the club but this season has three parts that help move things along. I’m enjoying it can wait for the finale next week.

I both like and hate this format for broadcasting a series. It's more like British shows I've seen. On the one hand, waiting for the next season can take too long and I get irritated with that. A redeeming feature is that they're only eight to ten episodes. We can watch them in one weekend, even one day if we're feeling like absolute couch potatoes.

We'll wait for that finale and then watch the whole thing. I think it looks like fun.

Love Mindy Cohn, Allison Janney, Carol Burnett. But I have never warmed to Kristen Wiig. I’ll try to watch it but if KW is too annoying I may have to give up.

Episode 6 was very good. Allison Janney was great in all her scenes. And she delivered some insults that I will be adding to my repertoire.

I'm still enjoying this show and rewatched a few episodes on a long flight this weekend. It's just gorgeous looking and insular from the world's issues via the 1970s or 2024. But I have to say, it makes Palm Beach look boring as hell. The Palm Royal looks like the equivalent of Mayonnaise.

But my biggest thought, it how these woman could wear these clothes and big hair in FL without sweating their wigs off their heads. I know the season was in Fall through early Spring, but southern FL is still hot in those months.

by Anonymousreply 61April 16, 2024 5:32 PM

I thought the 6th episode was an improvement on the 5th, which was a snore. At least things are nicely set in motion for the next 4 eps.

Though her performance is very broad, I’m loving Carol Burnett in this, think her loopiness is very funny.

I’m also finding Josh Lucas hot as fuck. Love a thick, middle-aged blond.

I still don’t really get this series. I know it was based on a novel, seems sillier and more trivial than it needs to be, and the tone wobbles, but the cast, the clothes and the saturated colors of the cinematography keep me coming back.

by Anonymousreply 62April 16, 2024 5:39 PM

I don't get how these women aren't bored to tears in Palm Beach for months at a time. The younger one fucking the tennis instructor is only 40. Why would a 40 year old want to hangout with some old birds in Palm Beach? This is the part that confused me, the mixed generational friendship. Same issue with the movie, The Help. They had a 20-something bully setup as the queen bee of Jackson's social scene, when in reality, there was a hierarchy that always placed the older above the younger, unless you were Jackie Kennedy or a Post heiress with outright massive fortunes.

So, I doubt Evelyn would be hanging out with Dinah. Dinah would hang out with the younger set from her generation, not her mother's generation.

A scene with Ben Palacios getting his nipples sucked by Ricky Martin was a decent consolation.

Plot heavy is a good term for what is getting draggy about it. But the game cast, the clothes, sets and photography are going a long way toward making up for the hit-or-miss tone and direction. I’m finding it entertaining.

It's an afterthought show for me.

I watched the recent episode last night because I had nothing better to watch.

No one stands out, especially Kristen Wiig. The only good performance is Ricky Martin.

I expected more from a cast like that.
