TV Club: History—and the tabloids—has its eyes on Another Period

The first season of Another Period was—intentionally—a glorious trainwreck. Part Downton Abbey parody, part Keeping Up With The Kardashians skewer, and part 20th century history lesson, the Natasha Leggero/Riki Lindhome-created comedy instantly impressed with its manic approach to comedy about terrible people in olden times. That was in addition to its uncanny ability to get such a high profile cast (like Christina Hendricks immediately post-Mad Men) and guest stars. And despite how truly awful the characters could be, Leggero and Lindhome’s respective roles as the image-obsessed Lillian and Beatrice Bellacourt managed to find some humanity as the season progressed.

So despite being excommunicated from their family and forced to live on the street, Another Period‘s first season finale ended with the happy ending of everything somehow working out for Lillian and Beatrice Bellacourt. They got what they truly wanted: They were famous. All thanks …
