Anyone watch this yet?  I binged the first season on Sunday.  Groundhog Day in NYC.  Very black comedy - well written, well acted.  I highly recommend it.

Interesting show.  Managed to be its own story and any thoughts it might just be a rehash of "Groundhog Day" vanished pretty early.

Very entertaining and funny.

So I guess "Groundhog Day" is its own genre now? Happy Death Day 2U hits theaters tomorrow.

Yep.  Sat down last night at 7:30 to sample the first episode and ended up going to bed after midnight having speedballed the entire series in one sitting (only breaking to go shovel).  EXTREMELY good.  The reboot with Maxine (solo) was really heartbreaking/terrifying on a level I hadn't expected.

How many of you had "Gotta Get Up" by Harry NIlsson trapped in your head for days afterward? As well as a craving for Israeli joints? (Kidding about that last part.)

I was quite stroked with the use of Nilsson's "Gotta Get Up".  I was a huge fan of Nilsson's music way back in the 1960's when he first started recording, and have most of his albums (yes, vinyl), later CDs. I've found over the years that many of my friends have heard his music but didn't connect his name with them.
