The climax was great. I didnít expect it to end the way it did. I expected less but received more.

I really enjoyed this show! I think it hit its stride about 1/2 way through but also ended very well!

I just watched E3 last night during that boring ass Not Super Bowl game, it was really good. was surprised at the ending of that episode.

it's very funny, well acted and very well written. the star said she and the other writers have a 3 season plan with the story arc, lets all they get it. this show is excellent!

Didn't find it very involving or funny at all.
Eh... same here. The hipster side characters got reeeeaally annoying. Lol

[Show spoiler]Liked it, too, even though I'm not quite sure I "got" it.
Did they save each other, or "join the Black Parade"? That last scene just gave me a real strong "now we're dead" vibe...

Binged everything up to the final ep last night and have really enjoyed it so far. Natasha Lyonne really seems to be a love her or hate her type of actress. The dry, dark humor she projects with her character dealing within her ďloopĒ was laugh out loud funny quite a few times. Canít wait to watch the last ep later tonight and see how they wrap it all up.

After that Iíll probably grab my Freeway 2 Confessions of a Trick Baby blu and give it a re spin.

The more Natasha Lyonne the better.

I enjoyed it. I know people always tend to refer time loops back to Groundhog Day but my own point of reference is the ST:TNG episode Cause & Effect, which technically came before Groundhog Day (although it wasnít the first time it had been done). I was also reminded of the episode Remember Me.

I binged this over the weekend. Eight 30 minute episodes is my kinda jam... succinct storytelling perfectly split up over the time allocated, funny, emotional, quirky and great performance from Natasha.

Knowing Netflix, they'll **** this up by doing another series, but this absolutely does not require it. I really liked it, and I would probably watch this again quite easily thanks to the manageable length.

The show creators said in interviews that they pitched it to Netflix as a 3-season show

I suppose if its been created and planned as such - rather than the writers now having to manufacturing a forced narrative because Netflix want more episodes of a limited single series because its popular - it could be okay...

Still, I really liked this, but not sure if there is enough for more seasons even if they are planned. I'll just keep think in the "lets wait and see what happens" pile...

Interesting show for sure. It does take a few episodes before things start to get interesting and it doesn't feel derivative. It became its own thing. We watched it straight through and it moves along at a pretty good pace.

This show was amazing, but also frustratingly short. It takes a couple episodes to really get going, but then you get hooked, and then it's done! I would have loved another 3 or 4 episodes. I'm also a bit torn on whether I want further seasons or not. On one hand, Natasha Lyonne is a treasure, and this show was made for her persona. On the other, the season wrapped up so damn perfectly, that I wouldn't want further seasons to tamper with htat. It's actually the same exact dilemma I have with the Happy Death Day franchise, and its potential future sequels.

Anyway, I highly recommend this one, and I'd also suggest to ride the whole thing out. Even if you weren't feeling it at the start, it gets much better.
