Russian Doll: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: Russian Doll may be stuck in a time loop, but this endlessly inventive series never repeats itself as it teeters on a seesaw of shifting tones -- from fatally funny to mournfully sad -- that is balanced with exhilarating moxie by an astonishing Natasha Lyonne.

Critic Reviews for Russian Doll Season 1

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (25)

There are a whole lot of ideas here -- a few thrown against the wall to see if they'll stick -- but the real pleasure of this four-hour head trip are the performances. Lyonne is outstanding.

It's a performance where the actor understands the character so well, down to every little gesture she makes, every twitch of her face, that it's startling, at times, to remember she's fictional.

Russian Doll is more quirky than apocalyptic and, unlike Black Mirror, the nuts and bolts of the story make little sense once you've watched all the way through.

We may only be 32 days into the new year but Natasha Lyonne has gifted us one of the most compelling, clever and satisfying TV shows of 2019.

The show manages to have heart, be clever, and be something completely original in 2019-definitely worth the watch.

Jan 31, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

As the series proceeds, it gets more ambitious and more complicated in a way that's gratifying to watch. It's still anchored, though, by its sense of place and time, and by the infinite possibilities that a night walking around New York City presents.

Though 2019 is still young, it is surely one of the best shows we'll see this year.

Lyonne herself has never been better as Nadia, a witty, f---ed-up whirlwind of a character who, fair play, takes a lot of the obstacles being thrown at her in stride.

Feb 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Netflix's latest series, Russian Doll tries to give it an acerbic hipster spin. Does that differentiate the show enough? Not at all.

Feb 8, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

As a New Yorker, I fell hard for how this show captures this magical city that is hard and tender, wonderful and weird.
