    New dark comedy on Netflix starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini (who seems to be in a lot lately).

    Half way through and Im rather enjoying it - ten half hour episodes.

    Applegate plays a grieving widow whose husband has died in a hit and run accident, befriends Cardellini in a grief support group but doesn't know she was the one who killed her husband.

    I may binge this tonight. I'll always have good will for Christina Applegate.

    Finished it all today! This is exactly my type of show.

    Considering I really don’t go for the other mainstream stuff everyone else is obsessed with and my fav shows (Crazy Ex GF and Jane The Virgin) have ended/are ending, is there anything else a bit like this that would be good to pick up on?

    I watched the first episode and liked some elements but the tone was really all over the place, kinda like it wants to be darker but can't commit. does it get better?

    It really does, I found it got stronger and stronger as the season went on

    Loved it. I see Jark's point about the tone, but you just have to roll with.

    I finished & of course loved it. Christina Applegate is a revelation.

    Can't wait for saison 2

    I assume nothing is confirmed regarding a second season yet?

    I think I may watch the whole thing over again.

    Watched the first seven eps today, amazing. The scene at the restaurant with Bambi was too much. Christina Applegate is very very good in this.

    I see this is the #2 show on Netflix UK now, behind Riverdale. They must be really happy with that, particularly if it's similarly successful elsewhere.

    On the main Netflix menu it says 'Top 10 show' now against some of them. If you select it, it then says the position. I think Drag Race was #8.

    They have also started to do top 10 lists by country on their social media platforms each week

    Loved this. Really enjoyed both leads and James Marsden is still a very good looking man.

    I look forward to another two seasons followed by cancellation on a cliffhanger.
