Z is a biography series based on the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, the brilliant, beautiful and talented Southern Belle who becomes the original flapper and icon of the wild, flamboyant Jazz Age in the 20s. Starring Christina Ricci (Monster) as Zelda Fitzgerald, Z starts before she meets the unpublished writer F. Scott Fitzgerald (David Hoflin), and moves through their passionate, turbulent love affair and their marriage-made in heaven, lived out in hell as the celebrity couple of their time. The series travels through the wild parties, the wicked jazz, the dissolute artists of the era, as well as the alcoholism, adultery and struggle with dashed dreams and mental illness that characterizes their later years.

You gave it 1 star cuz IMDB has the rating wrong?
27 August 2018 | by kai-crossSee all my reviews

Gosh, juleperry, that's SO smart! Rate a show bad because someone messed up on the rating. Because, you know, that really reflects on the acting, directing, production, etc.! And you being mad makes that rating ok....uh huh.

How about a real rating? This program is wonderfully produced and has great acting, but it might be a little bit slow and too intellectual for people who don't know much about the literary world. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I rated it based upon its actual value... and not some messed-up rating.
