Someone recommended “Doctor Foster” to my wife and we binge watched both seasons over the weekend. At 10 episdoes in total, an hour per episode, that’s 10 hours I am never getting back.
I don’t want to waste any more time writing about it either, but I’ll say this for anyone else Googling about the show before watching it – it is emotionally exhausting and frustrating. Not the content of the show, but just the show itself.
Husband cheats on wife, wife discovers it; spends first few episodes wondering whether to confront him or not and dealing with the grief of it; everyone else around her seems to know about this and she’s got a useless bunch of friends for sure; finally confronts, husband denies; more drama, and eventually in the last episode it all comes out and there’s a bit of violence and finally he leaves town with the new girl. That was season 1. In season 2 he comes back (don’t ask why, pointless!) and there’s more drama between the two. By the second episode I stopped caring but watched anyways coz I wanted to finish it off.
The crazy thing is the first episodes of both seasons setup the ending as if something crazy was going to happen – like the wife was going to go on a revenge path or just kill everyone etc. But nothing like that happened and it was just a let down. Should have realized then this was a waste of time. Oh well.
