    I was looking forward to checking out this show. The 70s were, from what I hear, rich with sex and drugs and that seems like an interesting and exciting backdrop for pretty much anything. Except with this show, the world's most vanilla housewife give us a glimpse into her poor little rich girl life.

The 70s were, from what I hear, rich with sex and drugs and that seems like an interesting and exciting backdrop for pretty much anything. Except with this show, the world's most vanilla housewife give us a glimpse into her poor little rich girl life. Alicia Silverstone plays this character like a pill popper on a manic spree, all crazy smiles and over-pronounced diction. But the character isn't nearly that interesting. (Ironically, the character who's constantly popping diet pills is as calm and laid back as the best stoner, making me wonder if the writers of this flop even tried to tell a passable story). Overall, the show is boring, the characters unlikeable and unbelievable, and the storyline completely forgettable. There's way too much great content across networks and OTT for me to go back for a second viewing of American Woman. This show is a wildly missed opportunity to tell any number of truly interesting stories. Expand

    This is a visually dynamic glimpse of Hollywood in the 70's. This show combines the gorgeous stylization of Madmen, along with the frivolity and fun of Sex in the City.

    As generic as its title, this glossy wallow in female buddy-comedy cliches is about as authentic as the fibers in her louse of a husban's hilariously loud jackets. [11 - 24 Jun 2018, p.13]

    American Woman means well but just can't figure out what show it's trying to be, which makes it a good fit for the equally identity-free Paramount Network.

    Pointing out that there’s nothing particularly original or groundbreaking here, notwithstanding its real-life roots, is not to deny the series' pleasures, from its performances to its production design--and what, after all, is less original than real life?
