Is It Any Good?

For fashion superfans, the series offers delicious insight into the fashion industry and into the 1970s New York City disco scene. The costumes (both Halston's creations and the characters' everyday outfits) are superb. Otherwise, the series falls fairly flat. The writing hits viewers over the head with obvious dialogue and predictable storytelling. Halston's biography is outlined, but the show does not explore his inner world at all. As a result, it's hard to care much about the characters. Fashion-interested teens may enjoy this peek behind-the-scenes, but the mediocre show quality with the combination of mature elements may turn them off.
