Sure, I'm down. The Resort, Mrs Davis, Poker Face, Bupkis, I weirdly like Peacock.

"Ava Bartlett" sounds like a very podcast-host name.

Wow...this started out good but turned into a whole lot of nothing. I liked the actors, but the writing was awful - every single episode had one (and sometimes more than one) of those fantasy sequences where they think they're tricking their audience by showing something happening - only to reveal it was just a dream/fantasy that the character has. One of those is forgivable - doing it in every single show (especially when the episodes were only about 30 minutes anyway) got annoying real fast.
