Netflix’s Russian Doll made me yell at the TV

I’ve been spending most of my spare time these past couple weeks either reading or working on this website, avoiding the lure of plopping down on the couch and indulging in some mindless cinema or TV binging. But that temptation caught up with me last night when I found myself watching the entirety of one of Netflix’s newest original shows, Russian Doll. No regrets.

It seems that most people are staying pretty mum on the premise of this show, and for good reason. In essence, it’s a Groundhog Day-type thing about human relationships. In execution, this show unfolded like one of those paper fortune tellers kids make, revealing layer after layer of interconnectedness and showing you unexpected ways all these people and their own plot lines interact. I’m hesitant to say much more than that, so I’ve put the rest of this post on a second page. But this show truly feels like something you should experience for yourself before reading too much about it.
