A dishy psychological thriller series starring the brilliant Naomi Watts and executive-produced by the talented Sam Taylor-Johnson? Sounds like a fine for Netflix, right?
Sadly, Gypsy is a preposterous show about a psychotherapist who involves herself in the lives of her patients, and the end result is more laughably trashy melodrama than the deep dive character study audiences were clearly expecting.
Watts does her best to keep it afloat, but there's a real lack of internal character logic throughout, and without such talent attached, this would feel right at home alongside low-rent schedule fillers on any traditional TV network.
Unsurprisingly, it was canned by the streaming giant barely a month after its first season premiered.
