      Liz Shannon Miller Consequence In a lot of ways, this show feels like Tipping the Velvet meets Alias Grace, and if those references make sense to you, then this is right up your alley. Mar 29, 2023 Full Review Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News A gripping tale of mystery and romance and serves a stinging commentary on the White patriarchal/colonial time in which it’s set. Rated: 3/4 Mar 22, 2023 Full Review Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) This is a bracing, welcome corrective to the traditional British period romantic drama, upping the historic revisionism, queer perspective, and Gothic torment. Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Anne Brodie What She Said In LGBTQ+ drama mystery series set in 1825, pushes the envelope in its depictions of society, the British slave trade, and its resounding impact then and now. Rated: 3/4 Mar 31, 2023 Full Review Barbara Ellen Observer (UK) Grinding, pitiless, you could actually call this the anti-Bridgerton. Rated: 4/5 Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Joel Keller Decider The Confessions Of Frannie Lanington succeeds because of the performance of Karla-Simone Spence, despite some disjoined storytelling that leaves viewers in the dark about some aspects of the story.

      Joanne M Beautifully written and wonderfully acted. I've read the book and this was a great adaptation. So refreshing to see a period piece that's authentic and intelligent. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/19/23 Full Review Bex I actually put it on as background noise and because I like period dramas, within 30 minutes I was GRIPPED. Watched in one sitting. It's just insanely good, I had no clue what the ending would be and while it's somewhat sad it feels enough. I also like that while it's a period drama and yes Frannie is the other woman there's no direct homophobia. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/14/23 Full Review Saph F A really lovely, moving series! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/02/23 Full Review Maggie R I loved the series but questioned the possibility of a fireplace in a prison and visitors in Frannie's cell. This didn't ring true for me. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/01/23 Full Review Andrei D E prea centrat pe melo Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/19/23 Full Review Post a review
