Ever since Squid Game sent us into a frenzy in late 2021, we've been binging our way through Netflix thrillers. From Stay Close to Ozark, there's something super satisfying about getting stuck into a fairly scary TV show. See also: Archive 81.
The eight part series follows a videotape archivist who finds themselves pulled into the chaos surrounding a missing director and the mysterious cult they were trying to document. Sounds great, right?
Archive 81 stars Dina Shihabi as Melody, Mamoudou Athie as Dan, Matt McGorry as Mark and Julia Chan as Anabelle. And while fans on social media are obsessing over the minute details of the show, there is one thing they keep asking the characters: Why can't you just leave the scary mystery alone?!
"Nobody on Archive 81 has the 'this is none of my business' gene," one person wrote, while another put, "Thinking about all the times Melody could have just said 'f*** it' then left #Archive81."
Someone else said, "I have spent every episode of Archive 81 yelling 'omg why won’t you just LEAVE?!'" and "Me, literally the whole time watching Archive 81: Just leave. What are you doing. There's no need to be here. Just stop doing this."

Me, literally the whole time watching Archive 81:
Just leave. What are you doing. There's no need to be here. Just stop doing this.

I have spent every episode of Archive 81 yelling “omg why won’t you just LEAVE?!” and tbh this show has convinced me that I will never die in a horror movie
