While the show is set in the present day, it still has some connections to Outlander. One of the biggest is a fantasy mystery that needs to be solved. Russian Doll takes on the Groundhog Day theme, with a person dying over and over again and reliving that night. However, there’s a twist. Nadia isn’t alone, and there’s something mysterious going on with each loop.

This is one of those shows that offers some of the best character development for its lead character, played by the excellent Natasha Lyonne. Nadia is unapologetically selfish. She’s just a downright awful person at the beginning, but she soon realizes that things may need to change if she wants to get out of this time loop.

Far too often, women are written as perfect with no flaws. There was a time where we weren’t allowed to have bad character points unless women were supposed to be hated. Times are changing and Russian Doll gives us a very real character with multiple layers and plenty of growth.

With only one season of eight episodes, this is the perfect binge-watch. The second season has been confirmed, which is excellent news for those who realize that they need more of this mysterious world of life and death.
