Found it predictable and couldn't understand the fuss.

A funny, engaging dark comedy that delivers.

The story unfolds in the addictive, fun, stunning way that you want from and episodic procedural.

The story is entirely predictable and simultaneously drags in places while skipping over important details which would add a layer of complexity to the characters and the story.

Really enjoyable dark comedy, drama, crime all wrapped up in to one.

The story line is great, because it speaks of the unexpected.

Dead To Me is dull trudge through a "comedy" that forgot to be funny or even witty, and instead just settles for being unpleasant.

I highly recommend it, one of the best TV shows I have seen in a long time.

I experienced all sort of feelings watching this show, It made me laugh, it made me cry, it was thrilling and the pace was just right.

This is one of those stories that unwinds (or you might say unravels), slowly exposing additional tidbits that twist the storyline in new, and unexpected ways.

Gripping plot, makes you more and more interested as it unfolds.

The first couple of episodes actually got my attention but then the writing dropped off and then became predictable and senseless at the end.

Am I the only one who thought this show completely contrived and unbelievable?

Waste of time!!.

The tv show had all the right elements which made it so enjoyable and of course addicting!

Very entertaining and easy to watch.

The plot twist are many and some are predictable .

Dead To Me Season 1 is a tale of sorrow and mystery, the latter intriguing its interested audience the most.

It's dramatic, touching, suspenseful and shocking in every episode!!

This is a waste of time.

Finally something worth watching!

So, what gets it over the hump of predictable?

Really enjoyed it.

The only real disappointment of this series is the slow demise of the fine balance of comedic and dramatic tones that eventually are almost drowned out with the darkness that creeps into many crevices in the later episodes, unlike the Emmy award winning "Killing Eve" television series that has been able to retain the wonderfully cynical humor that Dead to Me eventually fades into the mid-distance.

Liz Feldman has a creative mind with such a suspenseful story line that can keep one's mind guessing of what can happen next.

A very entertaining dark comedy.

Compelling.

It is very entertaining, suspenseful, enthralling, powerful.

This show is so entertaining!

Worth watching.

I enjoyed it to mellow out with after work.

Enjoyed it faster than I thought I would have.

Super addictive, enjoyable characters and great cast.

I think she was supposed to be some sort of feminist standard-bearer, but the politics are clumsy and dragged in by the scruff of the neck.

It is entertaining, and being only a 1/2 hour long, it is easy to watch and keep your interest.

The two ladies are awesome leads and the plot twists are non stop and unpredictable.

With crazy spoilers right from the start, a great cast and even greater writers you will feel suspended in this suspenseful dark ROM com, so all eyes on Linda Cardellini the hottest spinster of the neighboring old folks home and Christina Applegate the Brooklyn tough mature as they navigate life alone in the crazy streets of Newport.

Easy to follow, very exciting and at the same time some hilarious moments!

With dialogue that rings with realism along with creative subplots that hit emotional buttons, this series entertains, intrigues, and captivates it audience with a dash of R-rated conversations or stunning words spouting out of actors' mouths typically used behind closed doors and announcing unexpected twists.

It was predictable and it was just about men bashing .

Both leads could be tedious, I mean how many times can you see Christina Applegate being slightly pissed off?

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Fun, intriguing and worth watching.

Entertaining, binge-worthy show.

The unexpected spots are what lifts this show way up over most drivel produced today.

The show is original, funny, witty but suspenseful and even deep at times.

The plot is ridiculously predictable, I figured out what would happen in each subsequent episode.

The story is a bit drawn out because of this.

Fast paced story, great performances and good script.

It's amazing how much is on tv, and how little is worth watching.

So enjoyable .

In my opinion the writers could've made it all even darker with the comedy-aspect and certain intense situations.

Really enjoyable show and great performances from both leading ladies.

The storyline is a little over used but the acting and writing pushes the envelope enough to make the series intriguing.

I think Dostoevski would have enjoyed it.

Applegate is truly very compelling in her widowed character and her delivery of lines was just perfect.

I like the thrillers which start normally, build up nicely and end in the most unexpected way.

I thought that was predictable .

There are some characters you'll want to see more of that don't get enough screen time, but perhaps giving them that would slow things down too much.

The show has great pacing, an engaging story, wonderful acting, and good character development.

The pacing of every scene and episode is enjoyable and kept me engaged throughout.

This was an unexpected find and I'm so glad!

I want to start off by saying that for me, most of the time I try to avoid American Tv series' as I find many to be contrived, overly censored or just dull.

Unexpected ending.

It's a dark comedy with such talented folks and good engaging story telling.

The writing is amazing and the acting performances were awe inspiring.

For a "suspenseful" dark comedy it was really predictable and had no suspense.

The acting of both leads is enjoyable and some of the dialogue is well written.

Worth watching though .

Unexpected .

Honestly just a waste of time.

Suspenseful, twisted and funny in that order.

Very entertaining, binge watched with my grand daughter, couldn't stop watching it

8/10 Adult comedy that isnt overly raunchy or pretentious.

Just brilliant and entertaining .

Was too engrossing since we finished watching episode 2 and binge watched the entire season.

Dark, funny, exciting.

Definitely worth watching (only 1 episodes of about 25mins).

This show keeps you on the edge and literally had be laughing out loud as I sat alone in my apartment!

This show is different, it's fresh, it keeps you on your toes as to what's going to happen next, and the characters are really enjoyable.

Hilarious, intense, exciting.

"Dead to Me" is predictable at times and ambiguous at other times.

The story is too predictable

The pace is just so slow.

Outstanding tragic dramatic comedy with many funny and hilarious situations at the same time, as well as ingenious turn of events to make it compelling.

Binge watch, I enjoyed it very much so has a lot of twists.

It's worth watching and falling in love with these characters.

Dull, pretentious, and poorly written .

Intriguing Mystery .

The story has so many twist and turns and it's well worth the watch

One of the waste series of recent time.

They literally miss everything that makes the experience of losing a spouse so horrible and profound and instead infuse this mess with pretentious opinions of what it's probably like sprinkled with the typical political agendas we've come to expect from our entertainers.

It's filled with suspense, small humor, sadness, dealing with grief, and thrilling all in one!

The show is simple and even with the plot twists it is slightly predictable in a comforting way.

Don't just leave it on starting episodes, indeed it is a little boring at the start.

The show is fairly formulaic: Establish episode premise, slowly stew over premise for majority of episode, have huge revelation at end of episode for characters to stew over in the next episode.

Linda Cardellini is an actress I only know from the Scooby Doo movies and other supporting roles in comedies (Daddy's Home) and the MCU, I didn't really have an opinion of her, I didn't like or dislike her, but she is amazing hereDarkly comic at times and heartbreaking at others, it is utterly compelling and each episode just makes you want to watch the next.

The acting is also great and the pacing of the short episodes is engaging.

Starts slow and keeps the viewers intrigued about what's gonna happen next.

My wife and I were heckling the TV in the last 2, completely predictable, and formulaic.

Really enjoyed it until it insulted half its audience at the end of episode 1 .

Light hearted dark comedy worth watching.

Just really boring, sloppy, predictable writing.

Entertaining (especially for ladies) .

This is both a buddy comedy and a suspenseful thriller.

Instead it went from good, to slow, to predictable nothingness.

Intriguing performances by both leading ladies.

Hats off to the writers and editing for a very compelling concept which never let's up.
