There’s something about period erotic comedy shows that has fans obsessed. The shows are known for their kitschy, over-the-top plots that center around the lives of women in the 1920s and ’30s.
The actresses often play flappers and other women of the era, who are often struggling with love, marriage, and motherhood.
The stories are meant to be funny and tongue-in-cheek, but they also serve as a way to explore how women were treated during this time period.
The films are often told from the perspective of a woman who is trying to find her place in a world that doesn’t always value her or treat her fairly—or at least not as much as it does men.
One such popular show is Minx. The period erotic comedy from HBO that premiered in March this year presented a refreshing concept that was highly appreciated and found its audience quickly.
The show was picked for a second season in May due to its popularity. But there has been some foul smell flying on the internet regarding the future of the show. Check out this article to know everything.
