Netflix’s latest series in the conspiracy and mystery genre is “Russian Doll,” starring Natasha Lyonne of “Orange is the New Black” fame.

This show, directed by Stavros Kazantzidis, consists of time conspiracy and mystery. Lyonne — who co-created the show with the likes of Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland — plays Nadia, who is dealing with the issue of dying and waking up in the same day, kind of reminiscent of Bill Murray’s “Groundhog Day.”

Nadia is unaware of how and why she is reliving the same day — her 36th birthday — over and over again. This show generates a major mystery. With good acting and capitiving music, the audience is engaged.

Each of the eight episode consists of a large platter of information and important clues. The viewer might even have to watch an episode more than twice to catch subtle background stories and hints to why the conflict is present.

The show has been advertised all over different social media platforms. Through ads and even a selected portion of the Netflix home screen presented a trailer. The short taste of the show presented before debut included what may become an iconic scene in the show.

The protagonist looks in the mirror and is mentally getting herself ready to proceed to her party outside of the bathroom doors. In the actual running show, you see this scene every episode. 

The scene also is followed by the song “Gotta get up” written by Harry Nilsson. If you like music in the indie vein, this series contains a unique, ear-pleasing, captivating soundtrack.
