Behind Her Eyes: The Goat Of the Twist

I finished watching Behind Her Eyes like six months ago and I still have to regain my senses every now and then, like when I’m brushing my teeth or doing other mundane tasks and just think to myself “What the fuck?”  I take a deep breath and let it go.  The meditation app Headspace has helped me a lot.  Don’t get me wrong, Behind Her Eyes wasn’t scary, but it was utterly fucking insane.

The story jumps from a psychiatrist starting an affair with a woman who also befriends his crazy wife.  By itself, that isn’t a groundbreaking premise, but I can 150% guarantee you that by the show’s end you will be physically gasping for air; or a blankee.  Yes, a blankee because the twists and turns of this show will leave you in a confused, Freudian toddler-like state.  I’m not ashamed to admit that after it was over I found myself muttering, ‘Mommy.”  Also, my ex might say I uttered that once during sex if you ever speak to her, but I’d like to assure you that is not true.  Suffice to say, only a literal fucking madman could have conceived this show and it’s so bingeable.  Looking for a great movie night that will shatter your Freudian like ego?  I thought you might be.  Binge watch this show.
