Season one of “Pose” is now on Netflix so I started watching it. It’s not what I expected (not sure what I expected) but after the first 3 episodes, I can honestly say I’m loving this series – terrific cast and storylines. I’ll be ready for season two on June 11th – I will probably watch season one twice before then. I’m glad I checked this show out.May 27, 2019 at 1:22 am #1202911939This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 27, 2019 at 2:47 am #1202911959
Season 2 will have a big impact on how season 1 does at the emmys. If it’s really well received and gets a lot of buzz I think it gets drama series, and probably a few more major nominations like Porter, Moore, writing and directing. If the season is disappointing then I think voters will stay away from it.

Ugh I NEED Moore to get the nomination. She was brilliant and MVP of the show by far. Hopefully she gets in and books some movies, she deserves.
Also its sad that Evan Peters will NOT be nominated for what has been the performance of his career.June 4, 2019 at 10:21 pm #1202923980
I was initially hesitant to watch Pose. Mainly because Ryan Murphy’s series can be hit or miss. But after binge watching on Netflix, I’m totally obsessed. The characters are so good. And it feels authentic to the time!

I wish more people would watch the show and see it really deserves all the praise. It’s going to be an awful snub if it’s nominated. Not only it deserves a nomination, it deserves to win.June 11, 2019 at 5:15 am #1202932539
It’s finally time!

I was also surprised by the first season. As Circa 1993 said, Ryan Murphy shows can be quite hit or (mostly) miss for me. But, this show has a heart and wasn’t afraid to show it. Billy Porter was AMAZING as Pray Tell. I think (hope) he is safe for a nomination and could be very competitive for a win.
The rest of the cast was very good as well. Some were new to acting and it showed a little at the beginning until they settled into their characters more. MJ Rodriguez is the perfect blend of sweet and steel as Bianca and Indya Moore was able to convey many different emotions through a difficult storyline…
Which brings me to my main complaint about season 1, the Stan/Angel storyline. The acting by Peters and Moore was great, but I just didn’t feel the storyline overall. I’m not sure if it was because of the story itself, or Kate Mara’s and James Van Der Beek’s characters (and I really like both of them in other projects), or that it took away from the group dynamic showing a suburban 80s life. But overall, that part didn’t work for me.June 11, 2019 at 7:06 am #1202932659
Stan’s private life being prioritize in season one had everything to do with making the network feel secure in backing the series with relatable to the mainstream avatars to Trojan horse their way through for something no major platform has done before — feature genuine gender variate people playing gender variate people.
