'Russian Doll' - TV Review

"Russian Doll" is an eight episode (~27 minutes each) Netflix series starring Natasha Lyonne as Nadia, a woman who dies and relives her own birthday party repeatedly. I watched the series because it had excellent reviews, but also because I've had an interest in Groundhog-Day-alikes in the last few months. Lyonne is excellent in the lead as a drugged up but intelligent software designer living in New York City. At the end of the second episode she meets Alan (Charlie Barnett) who has a similarly repeating day, and together (sometimes) they try to figure out what the hell is happening to them.

The series is funny, creepy, sad, thought-provoking, well written, well acted - pretty much everything you could ask for from a show. Highly recommended.
