Tacky yet fun faux-docu has language, lots of cleavage.

TV Peacock Drama 2022
Poster art for the Peacock drama series ANGELYNE, depicting a white woman with a platinum blonde bouffant hairdo wearing a bubblegum pink tank top and pink new-wave style sunglasses. The reflection in her glasses shows a billboard emblazoned with a full-body photo of the same blonde woman, with her name emblazoned on it reading "Angelyne".

Anchored by solid performances and bubblegum-fun visuals, the show works best when allowing its wacky, tacky star to cut loose as opposed to trying to interject some deeper meaning to it all. Angelyne's modus operandi has always been to achieve fame, yes, but on her terms -- the name recognition of a Marilyn Monroe without all the trauma and drama. A huge part of her appeal has always been the mysterious backstory and her steadfast refusal to placate those who would seek to expose it (who, it is worth noting, are mainly men).

Where is this dazzling woman from? What does she even do? Why is she famous? Despite journalists' best efforts at dismantling the personal mythology that this bimbo cipher created for herself in the wake of what we now know (or do we?) are complicated origins, Angelyne only reinforces the truth that some stories hold more magic when told by the myth-makers who dreamed them up in the first place.
