We watched one and a half episodes last night, which is about as much as I could bear before cringing and stabbing my eyes out.
Not one single character was likeable or possessed any redeeming features. In fact, each was a one dimensional cardboard cut-out.
The protagonist was simply irritating and I was hoping that she would just stay dead and not come back, to be honest. It was all just so pretentious, badly executed and not a patch on Groundhog Day, which grabs you from the start and is also very humorous.
This is neither humorous or hooks you, at least for me.
There is a great temptation, which many succumb to, to not only compare this series to Groundhog Day, but to rate it according to how they believe Russian Doll fared “against” Groundhog Day. Indeed, leading up to watch it, based on the previews, I was thinking in those terms. But I was mistaken to fall into that trap.
Groundhog Day is a romantic comedy, played almost entirely for laughs. There is an obvious comparison to be made here, with the protagonist (plural in Russian Doll) reliving the same day over and over again. But I felt Russian Doll had more depth. It wasn’t just magic like it was in Groundhog Day that caused their day to re-start every time they fell asleep at midnight or died (mostly by suicide) to escape the magic setting. In Russian Doll they had to navigate a dangerous landscape that seemed out to kill them.
Nadia is not a warm and fuzzy character at the outset, but I liked her wit and energy. If a male character acted like she did, I think the critique level would be less rabid. Heck, I felt it in myself until I challenged it. But as the series progressed, she developed as a person, gaining more depth, adjusting her behaviors. Hints developed that suggested that stuff from her past were playing into what was going on, and who she was inside. There were hints of explanations behind the strange phenomena, which Groundhog Day didn’t try for, such as the theory Of multiplayer universes in physics, which I don’t think I personally believe in but which I leave to the scientists.
I don’t want to give much away, so I will stop there. I think Russian Doll is imaginative with a lead character who is not easy to like, at least at first, but for whom the writer(s) were not afraid to put in some work to help us like her. I have no idea where they can go with the second series: a repeat of the same format seems unlikely, but I trust to their powers of imagination that they will push the envelope once again, and I will at the very least take it for a spin and see if I also like the sophomore series.
So many layers
I just finished binging Russian Dolls, and it was awesome. While it’s loaded with dark humor, this show is not a a comedy, but so much more. Its smorgasbord of topics, including loneliness, guilt, depression, fear, forgiveness, and moving forward.
A scorcher of a show.
I must admit the premise didn’t exactly fill me with anticipation, but the viewing experience really was quite something, you are drawn into the world of Nadia, who is stuck in an endless loop, you learn more about her, and another character Alana, who has the same fate. Nadia begins as a somewhat unlikable figure, but very quickly you warm to her, empathising with her.
The writing is incredibly good, it’s super slick, imaginative, and layered in a way that’s both intriguing and moving. The acting is terrific, with Natasha Lyonne (Nadia) impressive hugely, but the main winner here for me, has to be the music, which is sensational throughout, it really does play a huge part.
I thought it got better as it went on, the last two episodes in particular were incredible, energetic, and dramatic with a huge sense of urgency.
I hope they don’t milk the show to death, as is so often the case, leave it be, a terrific drama, with a beginning, middle and end. 9/10
