Reception[edit]

Review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes gave the first season a 36% rating based on 36 reviews, with an average rating of 5.08/10. The critics consensus states "Gypsy's ludicrous plot trudges along, dragging a talented cast with it."[19] Metacritic gave the season a rating of 45 out of 100, based on 21 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[20]

The show has been criticized by Roma organizations for its use of the term "gypsy".[21] Many Romani people consider this to be an ethnic slur due to its historical use in antiziganist violence,[citation needed] including laws authorizing the enslavement, branding, deportations, and murder of Romanichal (British Roma) during the Tudor period in England.[22]
