‘Dead to Me’ ‘Reno 911’ the ‘Downton Abbey’ movie and everything else you don’t want to miss on TV this week

Netflix deep dive


Not going to lie, I didn’t make it past the second episode. Not because the show isn’t good, it’s great, but rather, because it is so good at jump scares and anxiety-inducing chills, that I had to stop watching in the evening, after an exceedingly frightful scene.

It’s French. It’s scary. I recommend it without having finished it.

–Catherine McDonald

Ed. Note: I have watched the whole thing; it’s scary and funny and wonderful and I can not recommend it enough.

One thought on “‘Dead to Me’ ‘Reno 911’ the ‘Downton Abbey’ movie and everything else you don’t want to miss on TV this week

  1. Question. I went to record Creepshow today (thanks!) and noticed AMC is playing a bunch of the Halloween movies today too. Am I missing something?
