Russian Doll

russiandoll

I loved Russian Doll. I sat in my living room with my cat and watched the whole season in one sitting. I couldn’t stop. Lately, I’ve been reading exclusively fabulist/magical realist fiction by women and Russian Doll scratched that same itch. The emotional weight pummeled me, the supporting characters are so alive and entertaining, the twists somehow both expected and unexpected as should be with any fairy tale.  I didn’t know anything about the show before watching – including how reminiscent it is of one of my favorite films from the 1990s – and that made it all the more enjoyable. Thank you to my friends Brian and Andrea who urged me to watch Russian Doll. This is me, paying it forward to you.
