Audience Reviews for Dead to Me: Season 1

  • Feb 13, 2022
    Hilarious drama with two fantastic actresses Christine Applegate and Linda Cardellini. Plot is a bit "lifetime tv" sometimes, but the great directing, acting, and comedy makes up for it.
  • Dec 02, 2021
    This is a great series with strong characters! Enjoyed watching!
  • Oct 23, 2021
    I like Linda Cardellini, so I was predisposed to giving this new Netflix Original series a try. It had a slow start, but it drew me in after a while. It's good, but not great.
  • Sep 06, 2021
    Its stupid. The ideas and plot lines are just cringe as much as the audience.
  • Jun 03, 2021
    The first season of Dead To Me delivers with spectacular performances from Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini, and James Marsden. It has moments of dragging in the middle of the season, but rallies to deliver one hell of a cliffhanger.
  • Apr 12, 2021
    I absolutely loved this show and the progression of their relationship. The show wasn't perfect but I binged it all.
  • Feb 01, 2021
    A lineup of like-able leads and a binge worthy premise combine to make a captivating and wildly entertaining series that is well directed, well written, and that so successfully balances laugh out loud dark comedy with nail biting drama. It is also worth mentioning the irresistible chemistry between Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini.
  • Jan 07, 2021
    This is one of the best all round seasons of a show I've seen in the last few years. Mystery, drama and comedy are all perfectly blended up into one. Every single person in this does a stellar job, but the charisma between Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini is off the charts, the two have effortless comedic back and forth and their off screen friendship clearly shines through. A great depiction of grief and struggle alongside the LA suburban lifestyle but written in such a way that you cannot stop watching!
  • Dec 17, 2020
    Christina Applegate is absolutely amazing in this unexpected delight.
  • Sep 17, 2020
    Not bad, definitely has its moments. A little slow at times, but script is well written, and anything is possible in this storyline so you never know what's going to happen! The plot twists are great, and the beginning and end of each episode will have you saying "oh $#&%!"
