When silence really speaks to you
8 November 2019 | by vindstillaSee all my reviews

Loved it. Was kind of skeptical in the beginning of season one but quickly it grew on me. Season two I binged watch in one afternoon, and now I'm sad I didn't save some of it for later! I love how this show is dark without being overly creepy. I love how the dialogue is sparse and the silence really speaks to me. No grand gestures needed in the acting, which is very held back and understated in an honest but still kind of funny way. You can feel a lot of things happening under the blank and quiet surfaces of the main characters faces while the bizarre plot is developing. Great storytelling.
