RIVIERA Q&A with Julia Stiles & Colman Domingo
Riviera star / executive producer Julia Stiles sits down with friend & writer/director/actor Colman Domingo (FeartheWalkingDead, Euphoria) to preview the series' upcoming third season, discuss the thrills and challenges of filming internationally, answer fan questions, and more! Courtesy of ATX Festival.
Seasons 1 & 2 excellent plot, locations and cast. Season 3 forgettable, plot makes no sense, new cast members amateurs ? Locations excellent with the exception of Buenos Aires portrayed as a highway divided slum is a disaster full of cliches. Please no more seasons unless you go back to what made the 1 & 2 great.
Very interesting keeps you wanting more
Loved this series! This story was awesome, loved all the actors!
Loved this show from the start. Season 1 was great! Loved the story, locations, and fashion. In season the writing was a little disappointing. They redeemed themselves in Season 3 with the storytelling, although the art aspect is missing in the later episodes of Season 3. Also, the fact that the story circles around Argentina a lot during this season and not the riviera anymore, I think is too far away from what the show is about.
Loved the first two seasons with the glamorous Rivera as a star also! Started getting sloppy once they went to Paris and South America. Definite change of writing? Disappointed with lack of information for new episodes as to where to watch and when they are available.
