    Monstrous wasn’t really on my radad despite of the great cast, because horror is not my cup of tea. But… I hadn’t realised it’s only 6 epis of 30 min, so it could be doable. Maybe.

      Yeah, these short form dramas make it a lot easier to tolerate genres we don’t love as much or that are more mediocre. There’s quite a few of them these days 🙂
