The first episode of the revival or the first episode of the series? I haven’t watched, but I know the first episode of the revival has gotten poor reviews while the consensus is that it improves. If you’re talking about the first run I liked the pilot, but the show doesn’t really come together until season 2. Before then it’s pretty hit and miss. As far as politics and some of the coo-koo sh*t Roseanne has said throughout the years- well, that’s Roseanne. She was known as a hysterical, paranoid tyrant during the show’s initial run and did and said plenty of things for the sake of being rebel. How she’s evolved really shouldn’t surprise anyone.

I’m halfway through the first episode, and is this supposed to be funny?
And yeah I’m 24 and wasn’t even at school yet when this show ended, so it’s true this isn’t exactly my vintage. But in saying that, I watch Bewitched, etc. and laugh my head off. Isn’t good comedy supposed to be timeless?March 19, 2018 at 5:35 am #1202515558
Zellweger!March 16, 2018 at 5:33 pm #1202514657
I actually can’t believe the glow up from Debra Messing in the second half of this season. She looked like she was just going through the motions in the first handful of episodes, and now she’s on absolute fire. Would be a very worthy Emmy nominee.February 10, 2018 at 9:40 pm #1202491514
But why?February 9, 2018 at 3:27 pm #1202490970
Although, I don’t think the title “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” fits well. Yes, Versace was the biggest name killed by Cunanan, but this show solely focuses on Criss and his performance of the serial killer.
I agree, the title doesn’t fit the main narrative of the series. However, ‘The Making of Andrew Cunanan’ or something similar wouldn’t have had the popular appeal that ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’.
I’m also not sure why Darren Criss doesn’t have top billing either. If there’s any justice, he will be a strong contender at the Emmys and Globes.February 5, 2018 at 8:43 pm #1202488231
Surprised how many of you are leaving Debra Messing off your list. She doesn’t have a winning tape, but I wouldn’t count her out of a nomination.January 27, 2018 at 4:35 pm #1202480541
Meryl Streep for Cher
Cate Blanchett for Marion Cotillard
Nicolas Cage and Jack Nicholson for Adrien Brody
Jessica Chastain for Octavia SpencerJanuary 26, 2018 at 3:11 pm #1202479789
Imagine if the 2019 line up is JLD, Bergen, Hunt, Roseanne & Messing. That’s messed upppppp, but I’m into it.January 14, 2018 at 12:00 am #1202466789
Molly Shannon was indeed great in this episode. But to say she’s a frontrunner for a guest actress Emmy nomination, when she was never nominated in the original run? Hmmmm… And if the Globes and SAGs tell us anything, this revival isn’t as revered as what we may think.January 11, 2018 at 5:47 am #1202464061
I’m thinking Renee is going to surprise us all with her Garland film.
I hope not – a surprise to me would mean the film turns out bad. The team is highly qualified to create an artistically ambitious, intelligent, entertaining movie and R-Zell has the juiciest role of her career on her hands. She will pull all the stops to make Judy a grand comeback of the first order.
I was extremely heartened by a recent article where Zellweger said her favourite clip she’s come across in her research was an episode of The Judy Garland Show when Mickey Rooney guest starred. She commented she seemed relaxed and free to be herself.
I’m a lifelong Judy fan and the clips of Judy and Mickey in that episode are some of my favourites of her career. These sorts of insights from Zellweger are a good indication she’s going to great pains to really understand the woman and all her complexities and her light and shade; not just a stereotypical interpretation of Judy Garland as a mere ‘tragic figure’.January 11, 2018 at 5:41 am #1202464056
SO KEEN for J-Lo!
