    Reese’s character is supposed to be 40, and she is 45 so it’s not that big of a stretch.

    So many of these concerns about not being able to believe an actress because she’s older than the character are just blatant ageism smh.

    Of course it’s another thing that the only real reason Reese is on this show because she’s producing it lol.

    This was for me the best episode of the whole show. It didn’t aim too high and had a solid land. Crudup was indeed great as many have said already and I do agree he felt like a lead this time around.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I’m not going to say in case I’m right because then it will essentially be spoilers.

    I don’t know where it’s referred to that she’s 40, I’m pretty sure it’s more like 32, but it’s irrelevant. It’s about embodying the nature of the character, which is young and fresh and impulsive in the writing. Erskine and Konkle are in their 30s and portray teenagers in a manner which is almost uncanny in Pen15 (If that character is 40, it IS a writing problem, because I don’t think that character behaves in a way consistent with a 40 year old)

    Reese is not convincing me she has decades less experience than Aniston’s Alex, age of characters irrelevant. As for ageism, I don’t think that’s fair. I do think there are ageism problems in TV, but they’re often about not allowing actresses to simply play their age.

    I agree that this show is better when it gets soapy and doesn’t take itself too serious. And yeah, I found Reese miscast too. It gaves me always the impresion that she is in her early 30s and I can’t buy it. She delivers but I found this distracting.

    About shows addressing Covid. A show like this, that is about a news network, or The Good Fight, would have been strange if they have done like Covid doesn’t happened. But I’m fine with other shows not incorporating it, they have actually alternate realities. House of Cards should have need to incorporate it?

    Bradley was never designed to be the young-new-ingenue coming to steal Alex’s career. That’s not what she’s supposed to be. I’m pretty sure she says she’s nearing 40 in the scene where Corey takes her to buy clothes for starting TMS. She’s not supposed to feel younger than Alex, just different.

    Yall gotta stop. Witherspoon has every accolade the industry offers. She knows what she’s doing. She ain’t miscast in her own show.

    Then maybe it’s the writing, or maybe the character needs a few more layers peeled for me to understand her. I am several years younger than 40 and that character FEELS really young. I do know people like that in real life, but they’re either 27 or they’re older but way more sheltered than that characters’ history indicates.

    This isn’t unique to this show, there was a bit of this going on in reverse with Girls5Eva, too.

    I didn’t think much of Witherspoon in season 1, but I thought she really improved in the season premiere. Aniston was great as always, Crudup was definitely the MVP.

    A few days ago I watched the first three episodes (probably won’t continue) and Bradley says she’s “been in this business for 15 years” so yeah she’s probably supposed to be late 30s.

    Very packed and entertaining episode. I love this type of premiere that almost feels like a season finale in a chaotic and promising way.

    Crudup!!

    Honestly I kind of agree, and I think it’s the wig

    I have to say I thought it was a very good episode. What Morning show has been its entertaining. It’s the writing the best, no it is, but I still enjoy it. Whole season is taking place between January and March before everything hit the fan. I don’t believe other shows have done that. It’s interesting to see how all the signs about COVID were there and most of us were living the usual life even the news. So I don’t mind the COVID theme.
    I can see why some are turned off by the sneeze, but I personally was amused and went oh oh. Same when Bradley shared the flask , I went Noooooo.

    I watch this for the soapy ness of it all.

    About Succession, the creator said they wouldn’t touch it Bc he said that it really doesn’t affect the ultra rich in day to day. They keep living their regular lives.
