In February 2017, Netflix copped criticism of its advertising of the series in Germany. They promoted the show with posters that depicted a human finger sliced up like a currywurst, a popular German fast food dish. More than 50 complaints were made that the advertising was glorifying violence and inducing fear, especially in children, to the German Advertising Council who then forwarded them on to Netflix. Netflix ended the advertising campaign and removed all posters. See more »
The first episode was a little hard to wrap my head around in terms of what was happening. I kept thinking it was overacted and exaggerated and just kept saying "what is happening here?!" I pushed forward and was rewarded as the episodes kept coming. Everything I didn't understand at first made sense the further in I got and the episodes just kept getting funnier.
I really loved Timothy Olyphant's portrayal of the husband Joel. A guy who clearly loves his wife but just bursts out with the absurdity of his situation at times cracks me up. The kids were great and Drew Barrymore did a nice job of making a wacky character believable. Others have said they didn't understand the cookie cutter neighborhood with the neighbors who are one thing on the surface and something completely different deep down but I think that is part of the genius in this series. Loved it overall. Can't wait for season 2!
