This was a wild ride from start to finish. I loved every minute of this (even if it leaves with some questions like "I need to know!!")
I love Natasha Lyonne so much.
Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black, American Pie) is trapped in a Psychoalphadiscobetabioaquadooloop until she learns to swim, and catches the rhythm of the strokes..... COMPLETELY clichéd, but oddly watchable, if only for the creative ways she keeps managing to off herself, in spite of desperately trying not to.
Wow, I almost gave up after episode 2. So glad I didn’t. This turned out to be a great series and a very clever take on this type of plot. Final episode is great.
i think for as many times as this concept has been made, this worked out wonderfully. i really enjoyed this series and the fact that you don't have to be 100% immersed in it at all times to still understand what's going on. a good lazy-watch that still fucked me up quite a lot.
So many questions unanswered. Like so many! The ending doesn't help either. Hopefully more seasons come.
There is too much hair on this show
I mean, if I didn't watch OITNB then I would have thought that Natasha Lyonne had a great character but this seemed exactly like her crackhead character Nicky. I was almost thinking Nicky was finally released from prison and living the good life in NYC.
stop the gender/sexual talking shit and start dying :-D shows these days. no one's tolerant toward a straight white guy anymore? I didn't choose that either :-D
Boring shit, gave it up after 2nd episode.
The best way to describe this series is - boring and utterly annoying. The characters are pretentious and silly, not in a funny way of silly but in a more "fuck, I would punch that in the face" kind of silly. Shitty finale and all. Omg, I wish I didn't have the OCD which makes me finish every book, movie or series once I've started watching them. This was an utter waste of time. Can't understand why all the critics are jumping on the bandwagon claiming this is a good series and shit.
To @TwiztidJuggla420 - Yeah, I "spoiled it for you" by basically stating what the PROGRAM DESCRIPTION said, albeit in a more colorful way. Yeah..., and I'm the "ignorant" one. At least you had the good sense to delete your nasty remarks.
REFRESHING!!!! I highly recomed it.
REFRESHING!!!! I highly recomend it.
Holyshit! Listen, in this binge watching era of no cable, no commercials, I've watched my share of TV. You get your run of the mill, there's nothing to watch but you still watch to serve as background noise series (like that Drew Barrymore is a zombie series)... Well this is definitely not that type of series. I was at the edge of my seat desperately wanting to know WTF is going on and what's next. I'm glad this is a Netflix show for I couldn't bear waiting a week for the next episode. The 7th episode was totally a WTF, how did we get here, dark type of episode. It was awesome! And the main protagonist was just so on point with her character (I don't recall where I've seen her before}...she totally pulled that NY asshole role so well. They all did...even Mike was such an on point sleazeball. I really enjoyed it. Even the end was tied off nicely. Bravo.
Russian Doll is rife with well-written humor that belies astute observations about the human approach to life, and both intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships. Natasha Lyonne perfectly portrays a sardonic New Yorker in the midst of an inexplicable, existential time-loop. Each episode merits your full attention as a quick gance at your phone will find you missing tiny, but important details. I'm 5 episodes in and still without answers, but with plenty to chew on.
Plot aside, the show is beautiful. The multi-colored lighting, deep reds and blues... the near-perfect score. The great care and detail-oriented focus that went into making Russian Doll are apparent throughout. Great actors on top of it all. It's hard to find anything bad to say. Even the short episodes make for a well paced story.
Edit: Just finished the show, and all I can do is marvel at the wonderful finale... This show was unshakable, "narratively" and visually. That parade scene was just next level... and what flawless jumping between past, present, future, etc.
I can't help but feel that I'm missing out on several references and cultural symbols. Still, even without all the pieces of the puzzle, I'm amazed. So worth a watch and then a rewatch.
The only interesting thing about this show is the redhead character. Otherwise it's a complete mess. Not to mention that awful song repeated over and over and over and.. At least they had got right the logic about multiple realities. Until the finale. Which made little sense to me.
Really great show.
Get through the first 2 episodes ... it’s not just another goofy Groundhog Day comedy show. More like "Edge of Tomorrow" with a twisty hint of "The Voices".
Funny, sad and heartbreaking with great acting and so many great moments.
Are we thinking Nicky before she was sent to prison or after she was released? I'm going for the former
