Farewell to Pose
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Happy Wine Wednesday!  Award winning journalist Abbey White is back this week to bid a fond farewell to the FX series Pose.  We kick things off with our thoughts on the unexpected announcement that the series was coming to an end.  We then share our overall impressions of the final season.  We loved ALL things Elektra, but did not love some of the pacing issues created by the reduction of episodes.

Series co-creator Steven Canals said that in mapping the final season out, the writers looked back to the dreams of the main characters identified in season 1 and essentially set out to make those dreams come true in the final season.  With that in mind, we walk through the final chapter in each character's arc and share our thoughts on where they ultimately landed.

Next, we discuss our favorite episodes and musical cues.  We also share our MVPs of the series.  No discussion of Pose would be complete without discussing our thoughts on Pose's chances for long overdue awards season recognition and why the few nominations the show gets seem to all go to Billy Porter.

The episode closes with our thoughts on Pose's legacy and the actors who made us thirsty.
