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.
