To be fair, Russian Doll did improve 3 episodes in. Enough to keep me watching til the end. But I can't say that I loved it. It was smart arse Jewish New York hipster dialog based. Like Woody Allen without the charm. And the female lead weirded me out with her facial expressions. Like one of those pixar animated characters such as Nemo.
Just finished season 1 of travelers, I like it. I think they have plenty of room to expand with who they actually are and what their future actually looks like, Curious to see if they go there in season 2,3 and 4.
I watched the one made for Netflix. Really enjoyed it. I used to love watching him, but found his personality a bit too much at the time. This puts his personality into perspective. He really did have it tough. Treated terribly by the establishment. Watched it with my son and it was pretty educational for him too. Not just the basketball highlights because I had shown him those on YouTube already. He was a walking highlight reel.
Absolutely exhausted from a long week at work last night, I got home and collapsed into bed and decided to give the new show a go, Russian Doll. Watched the whole thing with only a small break in the middle to make myself dinner. Probably the most I’ve enjoyed a Netflix Original Series since Master of None. Borrowing an iconic film’s concept but then running with it in its own exciting, moving, funny and profound direction, this was really a joy and an experience. I feel like rewatching it already for things I’d have missed.
Fantastic series. My wife and I watched it over 3 nights. Great concept. Agree with missing stuff. A lot was happening all of the time and not always explained.
I wasn't familiar with Natasha Lyonne before this series but she was amazing.
