Screener Squad: Ratched

Ratched TV Series Review


Were you a fan of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” but always wondered: what’s the deal with Nurse Ratched? Where did she come from? No? Well Ryan Murphy has a new show made for no one titled “Ratched”. Sarah Paulson plays the titular nurse as she manipulates her way to being head nurse of a mental hospital whilst Bernard Hermann music cribbed from other (better) things sets the scene. Bradly, Nathan, Wright and Frank let you know if they were “committed” to this series or if it felt like an 8 episode lobotomy.
