    Sharp Objects is close enough. I understand the sentiment. It is symptomatic of the different eras, with the new golden age being grittier and peak TV being more commercially driven.

    I seriously can’t wait for this one. I was so angry when it was delayed, but now it will have more of a backing from HBO when it airs. The trailers haven’t given any real insight as to what the show is about, aside from the wealthy feeling entitled enough to try to get away with murder.

    Nicole looks fantastic, as does the rest of the cast. I really, reeallllyy hope they don’t go the trope of having it be her son who has committed the murder. It would be more surprising if it was Kidman’s character who actually did it. She better be thrown awards after that disgrace of an Emmy snub for Big Little Lies.

    Has anyone heard anything about how it is? And who else thinks it’s going to be one of HBO’s best shows?

    Reviews are not good. We might be facing with a flop situation.

    I found the book a little dull so I’m surprised to see some reviews say it’s more exciting than BLL.

    Probably preferred the book of Little Fires as well.

    Reviews are not good? Where? The most negative review I’ve seen is from Variety who said it was great but it could have been better and it felt like something was missing.

    So far every review I’ve seen has raved Kidman and Grant’s performances  (some have said Grant is better than he was in A Very English Scandal) and Susanne Bier’s direction. The only things that seem to be getting negativity are Kelley’s writing (but not on the same level as the writing for this season of Big Little Lies) and the fact  that Sutherland, Dumzweni and Jupe are underused.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    THR’s review is negative.

    Ok I just saw that one but at the moment it seems to be the only negative review so far.

    I mean I’m not saying it’s the second coming or anything but let’s wait before we start to say all the reviews are “bad” or that the show is a flop. At least until it gets a Metacritic score.

    Let’s not forget the THR critic hated Little Fires Everywhere too and that was far from a flop awards wise.

    EW gives the show a B rating. Praised the direction and Kidman, Grant, Sutherland, Ramirez, Jupe and Rabe. Cites Rabe as one of the standouts.

    Obviously the THR review was incredibly negative but like I said the only thing (so far) that seems to be negatively reviewed is Kelley’s writing in the later episodes. The reviews seem to be praising the acting and direction and have said it’s an addictive thrilling treat.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Reviews themselves won’t keep this one in or out, it depends much more on how HBO prioritizes it in campaign season. The reviews so far aren’t bad enough to suggest that they would completely bury something with such large names attached, so I’m not ready to count it out yet.
