The 80s ball scene is compelling--fresh, fascinating, gorgeous.

The plot is very predictable, just look on a ball's marks: amount of points in most important battles is different only on ONE (what a triumphant victory of "good" house against "evil" house.

But even though I have no particular interest in drag queens, loud night clubs, vogueing, or gender fluidity, I absolutely love this series, which is wildly entertaining: funny, touching, inspiring, tragic, and filled with fully developed, eminently relatable characters.

Another one pointless TV show.

The first gift bestowed upon Pose is BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT writing, and secondly, the execution by the cast and crew is downright STUNNING.

I find it mostly engaging and enjoyable, and certainly think it is worth the investment of time, no doubt you will become as hooked and interested in the evolving stories of the lead characters as I am.

" The ballroom culture of the 80's is fascinating, as are many of the characters.

Worth Watching.

Pose had a thoroughly entertaining first season, although I'm wondering where the next season will go, as many plot points felt concluded and many character arcs came to a satisfying conclusion.

Amazing, thrilling and heartbreaking series to remember those who suffered by beeing different, gay, trans, bi, HIV positive and those who lost the fight in the past.

All in all, I would highly recommend Pose, a stylish, entertaining show with heart.

Boring to death drag battles, aids cry scenes, trivial prostitute love with client and some FRIENDSHIP and FAMILY also in trivial style.

The characters are interesting, the story is compelling, and the overall tone is about people making the most of their lives.

Every dramatic moment was contrived and inauthentic.

Absolutely amazing and worth watching.

Its certainly a colourful and entertaining show, it appears to confront issues of the time reasonably head on and with honesty and relevance that would have been the norm back then.

Watch, if you like to waste your time.
