    No comparisons to “Run Lola Run”? Or did I miss mention of it?

    I enjoyed it! Usually watched at least two episodes per day.

    "Others" enjoy all sorts if things and we've come to a point where so few give any thought to new info or a different perspective that my answer won't be worth the time to type it out.

    It's a shame what's happening to our attention spans, separately.

    I'd describe The Good Place as “light and engaging”. Russian Doll is pretty dark, especially episode 7, and I think that the ability to turn from comedy to high drama is one of the things that impresses me about it. It’s also got more philosophy in it than is first apparent, though that's not something we can get into without spoilers.

    It really isn't. The story moves on a lot during the eight episodes and, if anything, they cover too much ground, ending up with a series closer that would seem to make it quite difficult to write season two.

    I loved Russian Doll. The dialogue & acting are spot on and while Groundhog Day is one of my top five films of all time I really think that this team did something different and distinctly worthwhile with a similar premise.

    Just finished it up last night with my wife. We like it. I actually like that it’s half-hour episodes, too.

    I liked this a lot. I’m no Einstein by any stretch of the imagination, but it did cause me to think a little bit.

    Great series. Thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a full stop though. No need for anymore episodes unless they focus on two other people in the same situation.
