Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, this dark comedy series stars Kirsten Dunst as Krystal Stubbs, a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM)-the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her family to ruin in the first place. Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM, until her business begins to affect those closest to her.Written by

About a side of americans we don't get too see often from hollywood.
As I'm writing i can't get off my head Krystal's words of the last aired episode (Ep 6) "Being broke it hurts like bad" and it hited so hard because it's what this show has been telling us since it started and i'm very grateful about that, I'm grateful because you don't get to see this subject of economic survival being a problem in a lot of contents lately coming from series and movies. Yes, their are characters in other series who struggles but it's only a tool to describe something else. On becoming a god is a critical statement about the evolving and brutal capitalism we're living in, it's not surprising for me that it was hard to find a platform for it because this content makes you think about a lot of stuff that we don't when we're watching TV.
Kirsten Dunst is an amazing actress and plays the part of Krystal just perfectly, like her two biggest costars here Thédore Pellerin and Mel Rodriguez who are fantastic as Cody and Ernie. The writing, the characters, and also the subtle comedic tone of it makes this show a 10/10 for me. If you haven't seen it already give it a chance because it's worthy.
