Lessons in Chemistry Review, Apple TV, Story, Episodes, and More

“Lessons in Chemistry” on AppleTV+ will teach you how to prepare the ideal lasagna, so are you ready to watch the cooking drama? Two episodes have been released, and six more are to come we cannot wait. The TV mini-series is the adaptation of the past year’s biggest debut novel. So, has it made justice to Bonnie Garmus’ Lessons in Chemistry, or are the viewers disappointed? Find out the Lessons in Chemistry Review from our post. 

Lessons in Chemistry Review

The Apple TV+ adaptation of Bonnie Garmus’ best-selling book Lessons in Chemistry, which is set in Southern California in the late 1950s and early 1960s, smacks its lips over the retro, candy-colored cars and appliances of the day while baring its teeth at the bigotry of the time. Seeing the first two episodes, everybody is talking about the cotton candy-pink kitchen that became the center of attention. 

“Lessons in Chemistry” skims through a decade’s worth of love, loss, parenthood as a single person, major professional shift, and, inexplicably, Southland urban development history. “Lessons in Chemistry” occasionally depicts the pressure of adaptation by condensing all of Elizabeth’s life into eight-hour-long segments.

We encounter other rule-breakers besides Elizabeth along the route as well: While Elizabeth is the star of the fictitious cookery show Supper at Six, the characters she progressively comes to trust are just as important to the success of the show as she is. It occasionally adds too many elements when contentious issues like systematic racism and sexism are mixed with family, religious, and scientific themes.

Lessons in Chemistry does, however, take a step back when necessary, and Larson (who is also an executive producer) enthrals in a role that makes use of her wide range of acting abilities by having her play characters who are stoically stubborn, discretely competent, and unrestrictedly vulnerable.

Lessons in Chemistry Storyline Discussed

The show centres on Brie Larson’s character, Elizabeth Zott, whose desire to become a scientist is suppressed by a male-dominated culture. As a result, she ultimately decides to take a position as the host of the food program Supper at Six. The Supper at Six kitchen set, which is pink with baby blue accents, was initially intended to be a housewife’s fantasy, as it is portrayed in the book.

Elizabeth has to defend her existence in academia to her sceptic peers at every stage of her professional career. She frequently passes for an assistant at Hastings. Even her true love, Calvin, initially misidentifies her as a secretary. Her coworkers disregard her efforts and take her assistance for granted. Misogyny, which can range from crude remarks to actual assault, isn’t exactly frowned upon in the workplace, as the Dr. Mayer episode aptly depicts.
