    new hbo series starring cate (as a republican activist against the equal rights act) alongside sarah paulson, elizabeth banks, (character actress) margo martindale, uzo aduba, rose byrne, tracey ullman, jeanne tripplehorn, phew, etc.

    may contain traces of "second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus".



    just been through the first episode. not quite sold yet but it kept my interest and cate is quite wonderful.

    It’s an FX/Hulu series.

    I plan on starting it this weekend, they dropped 3 episodes.

    Apparently it's coming to BBC so I look forward to watching this in 2022.

    loved Byrne in Damages (what a show!) but I've been less enthusiastic in other productions

    Same, it’s on HBO Nordic but not an HBO show.

    I think she’s got great range, she was hilarious in Bridesmaids and Spy. She and Chris Messina were doing a production of Madea which I would have loved to see.

    four episodes in and i'm quite enjoying this show. i can't say i know anything about the movement and i read a piece the other day claiming shlafly was a whole lot less multi-dimensional than the show's portrayal but it isn't a documentary so no surprise.

    aduba seems to be getting good notices but i think i like ullman best.

    enjoying it too! the actors are great, the herstory surrounding it is very interesting (omg they're all on wikipedia!)

    poor Aduba/Chisholm :(

    this last episode :disco:

    from the car scene with Paulson's hair all curled up to her eating horizontally to Byrne slow-moing down the hall to Donna Summer

    now give 'em hell, Phyllis!
