Trivia

According to an interview with costume designer Jennifer Rogien, most characters are dressed in muted colors to create an unsettling and "off-tilt" atmosphere. Strong colors are used to convey symbolic meanings: the scarlet blouse Nadia wears if she survives the first night "projects the sense of a strange warmth in a very cold world," and with the exception of Maxine's outfit, the color blue was deliberately avoided because it "connotes a calm and tranquility that is not present in 'Russian Doll.'"

Do not give up at the beginning! Wait and be rewarded!
3 February 2019 | by droideka75See all my reviews

Boy I hated this show so much at the beginning! It was awful, not funny, pretensious, pseudo intelectual! For the first 3 episodes boy I was almost giving up... And then it wasn't! Those first episodes are there for a reason and it pays off. Must watch TV. You will not regret giving it a chance past the first few episodes.
