Should have realized much sooner that
8 September 2019 | by fccs23521See all my reviews

Kirsten Dunst is one of our best living actors. She is such a gem and god so good in this role. The show gets better with each episode so I'm rating it an 8/10 as of episode 4. Everyone in this is golden, so funny and dark, I wish it was released all at once, I would have gotten through it joyfully in a day.

EDIT lowered rating to 7/10, second half of season is not as good. It's like Fargo with all the air sucked out of it.
