Applegate & Cardellini Knock It Out Of The Park
3 May 2019 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

The new show starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini just had its full first season drop on Netflix and both leads totally knock it out of the park.

It's premise (Two widows meet at a support group meeting, and become close friends) is not something that sounded interesting to me, but I love Christina Applegate, always have since I had a crush on her in Married With Children, and since then, I have always enjoyed her work in movies and TV. So I gave it a chance. Well, I binge watched the entire season in one go.

Linda Cardellini is an actress I only know from the Scooby Doo movies and other supporting roles in comedies (Daddy's Home) and the MCU, I didn't really have an opinion of her, I didn't like or dislike her, but she is amazing here

Darkly comic at times and heartbreaking at others, it is utterly compelling and each episode just makes you want to watch the next. I highly recommend it, one of the best TV shows I have seen in a long time.
