*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“I am not a woman…I am an icon.”

Angelyne premiered on Peacock on May 19th 2022 with five episodes available to stream now. The drama series based on a true story stars Emmy Rossum, Max Allen, Martin Freeman, and Hamish Linklater. Each episode runs for approximately 45-48 minutes.

We learn about the mysterious Angelyne and how she rose to fame by appearing on billboards in the 1980’s.

Here is the trailer:

Angelyne uses a fake documentary style to tell the story of this female icon with a talented lead and a fascinating story. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

All hail Emmy Rossum!

I am already a huge fan of Emmy Rossum and she is the main reason why I tuned into this series, but wow did she surprise me with her performance! She completely transformed herself. She was so convincing and captivating on screen. The rest of the cast did a decent job as well, but she was the star for good reason and she did such a brilliant job with her portrayal. I think she honestly deserves an Emmy nomination.


Fun vignette style.

I really loved the way the episodes were done. Each episode told a different part of the story with someone who was a part of Angelyne’s life at one point or another. It was interesting seeing different perspectives. The episodes were light and fun, but they also covered some emotional content as well. I liked that the episodes didn’t reveal too much and let the audience decide who was telling the truth. It paid respect to the real Angelyne, maintaining her mysterious allure.

The Cons:

I wanted more!

Normally I like seeing only five or six episodes in a series so that I can get through it quickly. However, when this limited series ended, I immediately wanted more! I became a fan and now I want to see more adventures involving Angelyne!

So am I in or out?
