    Can the acclaimed Starz series breakthrough? It currently has a 100 and a 88 on metacritic as well as a A- from Indiewire and it premieres tomorrow.

    First season should have been nominated for so many Emmys.

    Riley Keough should have been nominated for an Emmy and won Golden Globe. She was fucking outstanding.

    The first season should have been nominated and won directing without a doubt.

    Damn. Disappointing review from Matt Zoller Seitz, perhaps the biggest champion of last season.

    This season kind of sucks. I can see how Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz balanced each other out last season. Erica & Anna seems like a classic case of what you could call “auteur syndrome”, in which someone who achieves greatness is rewarded with excessive creative control. What results is almost a parody of what came before because the eccentricities are accentuated. Recent examples that come to mind are Mr. Robot, Terrence Malick and Nicolas Winding Refn. Nearly every shot in Kerigan’s episodes is a wide angle of only one or two characters in an expensive space.

    I cannot keep up with all of the corporate jargon in those episodes and the only other way that we get to see the characters is during sex. The clients in the first season were so nice. They actually wanted “the girlfriend experience”, which revealed more about Christine. The clients this season just use Anna for porn-fantasy sex, which makes for a shallower show.

    Bria is no more compelling (and less interestingly shot), but there is not even sex to titillate. Fun seeing Harmony Korine as an actor though. I wonder if True Detective will reveal that this show squandered Carmen Ejogo. Why would they make Bria from Toronto? That she pronounces the second T reveals her fraud. Does she even know anything about Canada?
