The psychological drama sees Mildred arrive in northern California in 1947, looking for employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind.

Fans Are Calling Sarah Paulson's Netflix Series 'Ratched' The 'Best Show They've Seen This Year'

published ata month ago

As Netflix explains: "Mildred's stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born."

Ever since it landed, fans have been raving about the new drama with many calling it the best they've watched this year.

Speaking to Vanity Fair about Nurse Ratched's character, Sarah previously said: "I identified very deeply with her loneliness. I think ultimately at the end of the day, that is sort of what drives Mildred.

"A pursuit of survival and of finding some sense of home. Even though the methods that she chooses to achieve that internal security are somewhat questionable, I would argue that she's doing them with a potentially selfish need, but a survival need nevertheless.

"Sort of an animal need that blinds her to the inappropriateness of some her actions."
