Did You Know?


When Jen keeps hearing the sound of the freezer where she's keeping Steve's body getting louder and louder even when she closes the door or is in another room, it's reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Tell-Tale Heart", where the narrator kills an old man, burries his body under the floorboards and yet keeps hearing a thumping sound getting louder as if it's the dead man's heartbeat. Those sounds represent the killers' sanity, state of mind & guilty conscience. See more »


A bottle of wine is placed on top of the freezer but later on it isn't there and no one has left the room with it. See more »

I can't watch like this

OK - I'm giving this season a chance, as despite the cheesy Hollywood agenda that all white men are evil etc (laughably so) season one had the redeeming quality of being clever and funny. Season 2 is so incredibly disappointing it's shocking. It doesn't have the dramatic chops to be compelling, but it has two talented lead actresses who they now force to be total emotional lightweights who cry literally 25% of the time.

The moral and political lecturing on how white people are privileged, men are evil, and women are superior and long suffering - yeah thanks for the broad brush strokes of virtue that I didn't ask to be educated on - but the trade off used to be this was funny and clever - now it's directionless, slow, predictable, cliched, patronising and cringe. Being gross and sweary isn't the all encompassing formula to success - when that's all you've got it just sounds like a plea to be liked.
