“The script fizzes with one-liners”

Feud: Bette and Joan, BBC2

Sparks flew. Delicious one-liners were traded. Ageism, sexism and misogyny were explored. This was Feud for thought.
Michael Hogan, Telegraph

Feud was created by Ryan Murphy, one of the executive producers of The People v OJ Simpson, and the campness and delicious wit of that true crime dramatisation is even more on display here, where it is better suited. The script fizzes with one-liners.

How furious the ghost of Miss Joan Crawford will be that she still gets second billing to her nemesis, Miss Bette Davis, in the drama about the Hollywood divas’ infamous rivalry.

It’s a yarn with pace and depth and anything that offers you two famous actresses, playing two famous actresses, playing two famous actresses, deserves a round of applause.

Alternativity, BBC2

You can shove your Strictly Come Dancing and your Apprentice finals, and Sports Personality of the Year, this was the nicest television of the weekend. Moving too.
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

Crooked House, Channel 5

Writer Julian Fellowes’s tendency to shove pompous, verbose dialogue into his characters’ mouths suited this adaptation perfectly.
