Nine Perfect Strangers is far from, well, perfect. However, it's still just compelling enough to keep you engaged. The acting (Nicole Kidman’s accent notwithstanding) and writing are good enough across the board to keep you interested in the tiny mysteries of everyone's backstory, with each episode dropping just enough tiny revelations about the characters' lives that you'll sit up and think "Hmm, that's intriguing." Although some characters are fleshed out way more than others, it's a fairly easy binge watch that rarely drags. It's never terrible, but it's never great either. That said, it is perfectly watchable.
