Dietland Review 2018 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Creators: Marti Noxon
Stars: Joy Nash, Tamara Tunie, Robin Weigert
Review: Every episode gets better and better! Talk about the zeitgeist, this show is so relevant it’s painful at times, but those are pangs of too real. Sure the JENNIFER storyline is fantastical, but it’s remnicent of terrorist groups that force women into servitude etc. it’s also really interesting to read the comments, how many people are in LOVE and feel like there’s finally a voice from the most silent corner of society. It’s also interesting the dichotomy of reactions, the outrage, if nothing else, seems to be from a place of shame, so it somehow fuels the show to a realism and a recognition how close to our world this could be. It’s the polar opposite of The Handmaids Tale, and yet they both are two of the strongest shows, and they are running in tandem. Love Plum, the whole cast is absolutely stunning, and the wit is so sharp it makes sense that haters have to run and grab a bandage by trolling in the ratings. Get it DietLand and BRAVO Martin Noxon, you’re a true artist and your shows are all addictive.
Putting a mirror to societal norms has never been done with such artfulness, anger and dark humor. This show is a best friend challenging you to look at yourself a little closer. It’s extreme and over the top in some ways but it reflects the truth of our times. Juxtaposed against the brash, in your face writing is the delicate, passion-filled vulnerable acting of Joy & Tamara.
They are masters of their craft taking risks with their characters. Their performances are examples of what separates good actors from great actors. This show is wild. But the acting is perfection with a cast so well matched that each scene is better than the last. The writing, acting, customs, set…all represent the best of what scripted tv should be. Thank you to each person connected to this production- stand proud of what you created and keep forcing a mirror of provocation in the face of societal norms.
