Natasha Lyonne in Russian Doll

Netflix’s Russian Doll is a comedy-drama about a woman who dies over and over and keeps returning to the night of her 36th birthday party. But it’s way more clever, dark, and edgy than its Groundhog Day-like premise would suggest. This show, in its eight 25-minute episodes, delivers plot twists and gut-punches as it explores mortality, grief, redemption, and forgiveness.
