ya most of these shows are bad, but their topical nature or mildly transgressive POV gets them (fleeting) attention.

my favorite netflix production/co-prod since than the end of the fucking world

I liked Lyonnes performance/presence in Russian Doll, but the story was a disaster. I’d like to say it was something experimental and not willing to hold your hand but it’s Netflix and I’d assume they strove for a tight bingeable product.

There’s a narrow lane to drive with a strong concept such as this and I dunno, I was flying over guardrails left and right.

i thought the first two episodes were kinda annoying -- another show about awful people in new york, riding solely on Lyonne's considerable talent and charm to push through that -- but then the plot bump in ep 3 was cool and everything after that was engaging. in the end, i liked it pretty well.

i just finished russian doll and i must say it held my attention till the end which was a pleasant surprise, but yeah , franco’s post pretty much nails it

I also couldn’t shake the feeling that the show was always lingering on, like. the least interesting stuff. and eliding the stuff I wanted to see.

really felt like a rough draft.

not afraid to admit i cried like a babe watching won't you be my neighbor last night. had no idea what sort of person mr. rogers actually was, on a mission to tap into everyone's inner child and shape the minds of the young toward love and acceptance... a balm movie if there ever was one.

I've just watched this and I've decided to call this doc Dumbfuck Mormons. My god I just can't..... i must have done spit takes (well not really but i would have if i'd been drinking) and/or yelled at my monitor like 5 times. Like what in the rifwfiuigrhgi34hgiu3giuhgui54g. And don't anybody give me that charismatic manipulator crap. no. No. You're just dumbfucks. All of you. Well not the kid i mean its not her fault, she had dumbfuck parents so she was a stupid kid as a result. But it's not her fault. But this story is only horrible for her. The parents needed to walk themselves off a fucking bridge.

Very triggering.
