I nominate this episode
7 June 2018 | by Brave_TraveIerSee all my reviews

Episode 3 is by far the best of the series and it's clear as it see why. Its simply flawless. I'm a hard rater but this one wins it over with applause.

If someone were to ask what show should I watch next? I would say watch episode 3 first and you'll know exactly how this series is and you'll know if it's for you or not.

Seriously, the pilot introducing James as someone who believes hes a psycho and wants to badly kill someone. Enter Alyssa. They both narrate with their inner monologues throughout the episodes making it very refreshing. Not constantly but often and always the perfect timing. This is a daring series that is successful because of the humor and casting choices and acting by both leads! If you like humor, love, and flashes or horror or jarring violence, this is exactly for you. It's not violent imo but it has moments of violence.

James thus far has been convincing himself hes going to kill Alyssa but well...I'll leave it there and say this episode pulls a 180 and is the perfect nomination for the landmark of the series to compete for a emmy if it were to.

By the end of episode 3 you'll feel, hopefully, that this is a amazing series and one of a kind and asking yourself why there arent more series like it.

Superb episode!!!! 10/10 solidly
