I quite liked it
1 February 2019 | by saikaheiSee all my reviews

After two episodes I was hooked. I did get a bit scared at a point, but I'm a wuss. Really enjoyable all throughout. Doesn't really have anything to do with Groundhog day, apart from the timeloop thing. Reviewers who claim so haven't watched more than 1 episode and shouldn't be taken seriously.
