Russian Doll: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: Russian Doll may be stuck in a time loop, but this endlessly inventive series never repeats itself as it teeters on a seesaw of shifting tones -- from fatally funny to mournfully sad -- that is balanced with exhilarating moxie by an astonishing Natasha Lyonne.

Critic Reviews for Russian Doll Season 1

All Critics (73) | Top Critics (26)

With the same humanity and attention to detail that it vests in all its intricacies, Russian Doll unwinds how the incoherent, shame-laden cultural image of mental illness diverges from -- and worsens -- the real thing.

Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) could rival even Annie Hall as a New York icon.

Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Its eight tightly scripted 20-minute episodes are funny, moving, and sometimes existentially terrifying.

There are a whole lot of ideas here -- a few thrown against the wall to see if they'll stick -- but the real pleasure of this four-hour head trip are the performances. Lyonne is outstanding.

It's a performance where the actor understands the character so well, down to every little gesture she makes, every twitch of her face, that it's startling, at times, to remember she's fictional.

Russian Doll is more quirky than apocalyptic and, unlike Black Mirror, the nuts and bolts of the story make little sense once you've watched all the way through.

Russian Doll is Netflix at its best...the series is a heady, addictive binge that avoids the bloat of other streaming shows and delights with its many subversions of tropes and expectations.

Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

What starts out as a brilliantly bleak existential black comedy becomes a heady examination of mental illness, deep-seated trauma, and what we owe to one another.

Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The rules of that game are, of course, made up. But they do not make sense even by the end of the show, when it becomes clear they were contorted to fit the plot

Feb 20, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

With its creative script, acerbic humor, and fantastic performances (especially Lyonne), Russian Doll is a hit... now if only "Gotta Get Up" would GET OUT of my head.
