    It revolves around a deja’ vu plot line a’la Groundhog Day.

    But there’s something else that’s taking audiences by storm, and it’s not just the quirky and slightly morbid premise of the show.


    It’s the way Natasha says “cockroach.” You see, people are absolutely loving her pronunciation that sounds more like “cock-a-roach.”
