Another person added: "The pilot of #TheDropout brings us Holmes’ as her father loses his job at Enron months before her freshman year at Stanford. Seyfried nails her awkward body language and does a great job employing the progression of her change in vocal tone.  3 eps dropped. Worth checking out."

A third person tweeted: "Happy to report that, unlike some recent shows that also center on con artists, #TheDropout understands that Elizabeth Holmes’ story is what people are interested in, rightly focusing on her and her alone instead of any bitplayers, journalists and the like. I'm less than two minutes in and Amanda Seyfried is already killing it."
