Dealing with the loss of loved ones and traumatic experiences that happened at the same time – even if they don’t realize it at first – bond the women of Dead to Me.
Jen (Christina Applegate) meets Judy (Linda Cardellini) at a grief support group after she loses her husband. While Judy befriends her, she’s full of secrets including one that will directly affect Jen’s life.
The show is a welcome return to television for Applegate who has proved her comedic time and time again. At the same time, Cardellini is in the prime of her career juggling comedy and drama, successfully creating a deeply flawed character with both.
Due to Judy, the show has a bit of a creepy vibe that’ll make you nervous as you laugh along.
Final say: Dynamic characters create an enthralling show. ★★★★★
