I follow the 3-episode rule, if it doesn't catch me by then, it's lost me.
>What's the point of making this thread when you have fuck-all to discuss?
That's my problem, the show itself doesn't give much to work with. What the hell would you want to discuss? Fire away. Give me material instead of saying insisting I'm wrong and can't dislike something you like and provide actual arguments instead of condescendingly mocking me. I'm at least trying to understand why people like it and discuss what I do know or what I think because even I believe my own judgements are unfair to an extent, but eventually I know I should shrug it off and admit to myself this isn't my sort of thing regardless if it's an objectively good show. Retsuko isn't pitiable, I can't support her from what I know from the first 3 episodes and sometimes that isn't a problem if there's a decent supporting cast. But there isn't. None of these characters have any personality aside from "work sucks/anger", "so-and-so did this", and "it'll get better." And I know they develop more later on, but there should at least be a sliver to grab onto. I don't care how truly reflective this is of actual Japanese office culture or society, Japan is a hellhole to live in in this regard. There needs to be at least some focus on driving an actual plot or narrative, like an event or some sort of life scenario, rather than just living it out. Polar Bear Cafe does this and another Netflix show, Bojack Horseman does this. And in Bojack's defense, at least I wanted to see Bojack get better, at least I wanted to see how things would turn out. I'm not saying it's a good show, but in that respect it's a better show because it pulled me in and got me to watch at least the first season. With Retsuko, I expect her to return to her office and have something to be angry about. I have no reason to keep watching because nothing is making me want to see how events pan out for her nor do I care.

I'm mocking your post, dumbass.
