Starting an episode of Peacock’s The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning is like opening an overstuffed closet. What pours out is a lot of joy and charm and swearing. Every frame drips with personality, from the people and the production.

It’s a delight from the opening seconds, when the series opens with Amy Poehler’s narration telling us “everyone is going to die” over a montage of happy-looking people, and then assures us this will not become a slasher flick—” not these people.”
