So many layers
3 February 2019 | by anarchyONtheSHORTbusSee all my reviews

I just finished binging Russian Dolls, and it was awesome. While it's loaded with dark humor, this show is not a a comedy, but so much more. Its smorgasbord of topics, including loneliness, guilt, depression, fear, forgiveness, and moving forward.
