Screener Squad: Run

Run TV Series Review


HBO is back with another entry in their line of dark comedy antics with the succinctly titled Run. The story follows Ruby Richardson (Merritt Wever) and her old high school boyfriend Billy Johnson (Domhnall Gleeson). The two had made a promise seventeen years ago that if they wished to get away from their lives, they would text each other the word ‘Run’ and travel America together. Unsurprisingly, things become more complicated than they seem when its revealed that one of them has another objective in mind. Santiago, Brad, and Nathan discuss this strange and surprisingly horny series to determine whether people should run to their TV’s to watch this or run as far away as they can.
