Criticism surrounding the series.
Critics are not happy with the upcoming series and they have many objections with it. Some magazines are calling it Ryan’s poor attempt to create a show merely based on his fantasies of Hollywood.
Variety thinks this about the series:
the first outright dud of his post-‘Glee’ career.”
“The limited series gets so caught up in depicting the Hollywood of Ryan Murphy’s dreams — to be fair, of any progressive, equality-minded, film fan’s dreams — that it forgets to dig any deeper than the surface,
Indiewire‘s Ben Travers also came forward with his opinion in the upcoming series,
“That the series proves an entertaining diversion, but it carries less weight than the smog hovering over Los Angeles.”
Hollywood” is now Murphy’s worst-reviewed show since 2012’s “The New Normal,” which has a 55% critic score and was canceled after one season. It’s lower than “The Politician,” which has a “rotten” 57% critic score. “
It seems like critics are not satisfied or happy by the series. However, people are excited about the upcoming series.
