Are the follies of the Getty family fortune fodder for your TV viewing happiness, during the first season of the Trust TV show on FX? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Trust is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we’d like to offer you the chance to rate all of the Trust season one episodes here.
An FX anthology drama, Trust stars Donald Sutherland as J. Paul Getty Sr., Michale Esper as J. Paul Getty Jr., Harris Dickinson as John Paul Getty III, Hilary Swank as Gail Getty, and Brendan Fraser as James Fletcher Chace. The story kicks off in 1973, in Rome, when the Italian mafia kidnaps young heir John Paul Getty III. Due to their hostage’s pedigree, the kidnappers expect a handsome ransom, but they never anticipated how this family’s issues would complicate their plot. While grandfather J. Paul Getty is ensconced in the English countryside, and the boy’s father is lost in a London fog of his own making, John Paul III’s mother, Gail, is left to negotiate with her son’s abductors, and she’s flat broke.
