Are you in need of a new show to watch? Something that is captivating, and keeps you guessing?
Well if the answer is yes, then I have the show for you. Netflix’s new series called, The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window
I read a little about the show, and of course love Kristen Bell so watched the first episode and was hooked. I think I finished the whole first series in a weekend. You could do it in a day if you didn’t have interruptions with kids and other things to do.
The show is a suspense thriller but also has some dark humour rolled into it as well. I found myself guessing and yes there is a HUGE plot twist that I didn’t guess at all, so make sure to keep watching until the end.
This is one show that I now cannot what for series 2, and yes, I binged it.
The way it ends it indicates that there will be another series, and I hope I am right.
What is The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window about?
Anna (Kristen Bell) is homebound due to a tragedy that you don’t learn about until later in the show. You see her staring out her window and loosing herself in copious amounts of red wine. She sees a new handsome neighbour move in across the street and she starts to wonder about him and his little girl. One night while watching the world through her window sees a murder, well she thinks she did, but no one believes her. Now she is doubting herself and trying to prove what she saw to the local police by doing her own detective work.
This is another show that uses the whole Hitchcock Rear Window theme, the plot is advanced by the main character Anna staring out her window. I will be writing soon about another show “Only Murders in the Building” where it is very similar to Rear Window and in that post I will address why.
Here are two lines that I loved from the show:
“No thank you I don’t drink wine anymore.. I’ll have a vodka”
“You are no longer in my prayers”
Have you loved The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window? What is it you liked so much?
Also I wondered about the extremely long title. The meeting with the executives about this title would have been interesting, and it definitely gets you interested. I for one was curious about it and then got hooked. Maybe it is clever marketing and we will see longer titles?
