Susan Sarandon is on fire in FX's Feud

On this week’s episode of ‘Bingeworthy,’ hosts Jessica Shaw and Touré agree that ‘Feud’ makes for great TV

Posted on

On this week’s Bingeworthy, hosts Jessica Shaw and Touré can’t stop raving about Feud.

In FX’s new drama Feud: Bette and Joan, Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange star as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, respectively, bringing to life the well-documented friction between the iconic actresses. But does the show do a good job recreating the angst?

Shaw thinks so. “I love this show; I could not get enough of it,” she begins, before going on to credit the show’s creator. “Ryan Murphy did for these two stars what he did what for Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson: He showed what was going on in the world and in the industry and the way that what we thought the story was at the time, was not the story.” Shaw praises Murphy for revealing that Joan Crawford and Bette Davis should never have been enemies, but everyone was conspiring to have the two women at each other’s throats in order to sell a movie.

“I love this; I love old Hollywood,” agrees Touré who is particularly impressed by the acting. “Susan Sarandon is burning in this. I think Jessica Lange is good, but Susan Sarandon is just crackling and just electric!”

Feud airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
