Simultaneous recurring voodoo amnesia is going to be a hard sell for me. Not only because of the similarities to one of my least favourite tropes (Groundhog Day) but because it was too fantastical for this very ordinary world. In addition, the repetitiveness is hard to get past – it feels like a ‘highlights’ episode of a bad tv show where they just reread journal entries and letters for an entire book and try to convince each other they’re in love and that they’re not terrible, entitled people. Spoiler alert – they’re pretty terrible, entitled people.
The only reason for 2.5 stars instead of two is at least it’s a unique idea, especially for CoHo.
