Storyline

Adapted from the lauded feminist novel, I LOVE DICK is set in a colorful academic community in Marfa, Texas. It tells the story of a struggling married couple, Chris and Sylvere, and their obsession with a charismatic professor named Dick. Told in Rashomon-style shifts of POV, I LOVE DICK charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the deification of a reluctant messiah.

Trivia

Most of the action is set in and around the town of Marfa, TX, a minimalist art mecca in the high desert. The real-life Marfa (population 1,981) is a popular arts destination home to Building 98 and the Marfa lights. It is famous in popular culture for the "Marfa Prada" sculpture, a permanent installation erected in 2005 about 26 miles NW of the town by artist Elmgreen and Dragset. See more »

Unpleasant pilot about unpleasant people being unpleasant
13 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a big fan of Jill Soloway's Tranparent, it seemed worthwhile to check out her failed pilot, I Love Dick. It was not worthwhile. At all.

In I Love Dick, a couple moves to a small town of writers headed over by Kevin Bacon as someone who is billed as cool and charismatic but who actually just seems like a pretentious jerk (charismatic jerks can also be found in Transparent - Soloway seems to be intrigued by them).

The wife becomes instantly fascinated by Bacon, even after he goes on a mansplaining rant denigrating everything she's ever done.

You can't feel sorry for her, because she's an awful person. As is her husband. Really, this is just a show about awful people. When midwest Republicans talk about New York liberal elites, I think they are imagining people like these horrible people.

Ugh.
