I’m not feeling it. Not fun or inspired. Patricia Arquette was a hoot in that Showtime miniseries not so much in this.

Had you seen the Gypsy Blanchard documentary or followed the case in the news, OP? I like the show, but am not sure how I’d feel if I weren’t already familiar with the story. A lot the lines and scenes are interesting because of the real life background context. I’m not sure I’d find the show interesting without knowing from the beginning that Gypsy’s illnesses were being faked.
I really like the performances - both Rosanna Arquette and Joey King are excellent, although I don’t get much sense of connection from them yet. I’m also impressed by AnnaSophia Robb, who doesn’t overplay her character’s scenes with Gypsy. Chloe Sevigny wasn’t the best choice for her character - she doesn’t seem at all maternal, as if, as the mother of three or four kids, she’s never met a child before. She looks good, though.

The documentary is a must for us bitches at DL. I think it is getting bette. Joey King is the stand out but her character be so sympathetic ? Nearly impossible for Patricia to top that Ecape mini series but I am warming up to her. The always good Chloe Sevingy is a great foil but it appears on the first episode Dee Dee’s con has worked on her.

Chloe was the weak link in Russian Doll, too. To me, she’s still a fashion and posing-obsessed twit who lucked into an acting career. The gays were on to her bullshit years ago.

Search “dee gyp blancharde” on Facebook and you will find the original page DeeDee and Gypsy shared. The post is still up even. It’s surreal.

It's horrible. The documentary was so much better. I think Arquette is miscast. It needed to be Melissa McCarthy.

Thin story line and it was stretched to 8 episodes of Gypsy getting tortured. I don't want to sit through that, just too much.
Probably could have gone via BBC route and get it over with in 3 episodes.

Liza would have been fabulous as the mother. She would have made Gypsy wear a sequinned boyfriend jacket.

Arquette is giving a truly wretched performance in this. Thankfully, Joey King is killing it!

A lot of it is underwhelming, but the camp element is off the charts. Patricia Arquette seems to be doing a (bad) imitation of Piper Laurie in Carrie, so a lot of her loud, stilted line readings are hilarious. I think it will be looked back on fondly on DL as a howler.

Yeah, I feel like Arquette is miscast in this and she's going overboard to compensate for it.
It's not working.

She gave the performance of her career in that Showtime miniseries. The Act may not be her fault the writing and direction isn’t that great.

It's a shame her brother/sister died, because I would love to see a drag queen parody version starring Alexis Arquette that uses songs from the Liza show.

What is Patrica Arquette doing with that accent? I guess it's supposed to be Louisianian but she sounds like pigeons cooing. By episode two I began to wonder if there was an actual pigeon's nest on the boom mic.

Latest episode was okay. Juliette Lewis was good and all background characters. DeDe and Gypsy requires good writing and this show ain’t cutting it.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||04/24/2019|
I am on the episode where Margo Martindale is introduced, and she and Patricia Arquette are chewing up the scenery without giving much depth to the characters. It’s campy, but there’s no edge. Also, while some of the earlier episodes were consistently effective, the length of the show forces longer scenes that drag down the narrative. Joey King is doing good work, and the kid who plays Nick Godejon is also convincing, but this whole thing could be edited way down without losing quality.

The writing and acting are extremely shallow. Scratch the surface, and there's just more surface. What a missed opportunity.

They way I saw it even though her mother did terrible things to her she was alone and needed comfort. My father was hatful to me beat me when I was young and maybe molested me but when he died I remembered the good and missed him.
Gypsy has let her hair grow out. She looks good. In ten years hero men beware !
