‘Ratched’ Trailer: Netflix Flies Into the Cuckoo’s Nest

Netflix has released the official trailer for Ratched, the latest collaboration between Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson. Paulson stars as a young Nurse Ratched, the character who originated in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Paulson looks great in the role, but is this show really necessary? Was anyone asking for a prequel on this character? That would be like making a prequel for Misery (yeah, I’m aware Castle Rock already did this), it’s just pointless.

However, I love Bates Motel and that didn’t need to exist either. So *shrug*.

Plot Synopsis:

From Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, RATCHED is a suspenseful drama series that tells the origin story of asylum nurse Mildred Ratched. In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind. On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred’s stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.

Ratched begins streaming September 18, 2020 on Netflix.

What do you screenagers think? Interested in seeing this at all?
