In the TV series Russian Doll often characters wrongly use the present tense instead of the past tense. Is this a kind of slang? If yes, is it common only in New York?
- First episode 15:08 - Lizzy says: "You drink too much?". It does not seem correct because she is not asking if Nadia always drinks too much...
- First episode 15:28 - Lizzy says: "Sees a Fellini film once". Because it is sarcastic, it could be acceptable, but it does not seem completely correct.
- Episode 5 03:08 - Beatrice says "Someone tell you?" instead of "Did someone tell you?"
- Last episode - Horse says: "He chooses you" talking about the cat that chose to go with Nadia. In this case, it could be correct, but it did not sound right.
If I recall correctly Beatrice also says "Someone tells you" when she should have said "Did someone tell you?".
I find strange that I never noticed this same error repeated so many times in other movies or TV series.
