The Gilded Age - Season One

Sharon and I finished watching season one of The Glided Aged on HBOMax on the AppleTV.

The Gilded Age is a historical drama series created and written by Julian Fellowes. It is set in the United States during the boom years of the 1880s in New York City. In American history, the Gilded Age was an era extending roughly from 1870 to 1900. Nathan Lane appears as as Ward McAllister, arbiter of social rules and style.

Originally announced in 2018 for NBC, the series premiered on HBO on January 24, 2022. It includes nine episodes. In February 2022, the series was renewed for a second season.

Sharon and I both enjoyed the show. I was particularly intrigued because a large section of Anderson Cooper's book Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty deals with the clash between the new rich and the old rich in the same time period. While some of the parts of the series are a little too soap operaish, I recommend the show.
