| Should have been on HBO or Showtime! See it For Poppy Montgomery!
I'm a BIG Marilyn Monroe fan! So When Joyce Carol Oates' book Blonde came out I thought that it was something very special! It truly was an amazing book, that not every writer working today can write. Joyce Carol Oates did a great job, even if it was or wasn't what Marilyn/Norma Jean really was thinking.

However this mini-series (even though it is 4 hours long) it very watered down and due to the fact that it is on CBS and a lot of the graphic content in the book, which was very effective, would never air on CBS. I truly believe that "Blonde" would have been MUCH better had it aired on HBO or Showtime. I don't mean they should have turned it into softcore porn, but as someone before said "This is a G rated version of a R rated life". It just was not as effective as the book.

The only thing the mini-series had going for it was Poppy Montgomery, who I think should have gotten an Emmy for her work as Marilyn/Norma Jean! No other actress has done Marilyn as much justice as Poppy did and it is a real shame that she didn't have better material to work with, but she does her very best! The rest of the cast gives good performances.

I really hope this gets released on DVD soon!!!!!!

Overall, the book was better, but it is still worth a watch for Poppy's AMAZING performance as Marilyn!!!
