    It’s getting shocking reviews

    The usual mob who shout loudest don't like sam levinson and think lily rose Depp was being taken advantage of, so no matter if the show is good or bad it is now bad in their minds.

    I will be watching as liked euphoria.

    I never watched Euphoria, so I was unfamiliar with Levinson when I began to watch this.

    There are some interesting things going on here and there, with some characters more interesting to focus on than others. The show is at its best when The Weeknd isn't on screen, in fact I'd say there's a more than decent show to build upon even without his character. They could have definitely made a tighter show about a fading star on the brink of a breakdown without the weird sex cult **** his character is bringing to the fold.

    Ultimately I think it will go down like HBO's Vinyl unless The Weeknd's name gives it legs it probably won't end up deserving.

    Like The Weeknds music and seeing him live soon

    Regarding this show I just can't get into it. find it pretty uncomfortable and creepy but at the same time a little intrigued about where the story will go

    decent start I think. the brittany story is oblivious

    It’s not as bad as I was expecting, however The Weeknd is truly dire and the show suffers every time he’s on screen. Lily Rose Depp seems to be a reasonably good actress so far. What kind of pop star is called Jocelyn though? 🤣

    It’s a bit of a mess but watchable. Hank Azaria’s accent is bizarre.

    More as I have it 😄

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,737 ✭✭✭Rfrip

    Even I can’t watch this

  • Registered Users Posts: 37,305 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009

    Knew I recognised the 'Jewish manager'

    The Weeknd is right creepy fecker in this

    Lily rose is going all out in this, some uncomfortable scenes and bad acting. Hard to take Hank serious with that accent. Might give it a break and come back to it if gets better.
