Anyone watched Six Feet Under? I'm in the middle of season three. I've heard over the years that the ending is absolutely tragic and one of the best ever made, so I'm interested if it lives up to the hype. One thing I'll say though is that i'm sick of the constant sex scenes randomly sprinkled into every episode. It just gets too much. I find it a little weird how centered around sex this show is. Also Claire is annoying af

It's not an Alan Ball project without the offputting gratuitous softcore. American Beauty, much of Six Feet Under, all of True Blood…

No. 164914

Samefag but though I haven't watched in a minute, the ending does live up to the hype imo. Ball leaves at some point during season three and the show became so aimless that I stopped watching, but he returns for the final six episodes to put things back into focus.

No. 165190

I've been watching Blown Away which is a glass blowing competition show and it's pretty cool. There was a metal working one as well that I tried that ended up being awkward and terrible. The metal workers themselves were awesome, but the host was like sarcastic and rude to the competitors. And despite at least one of the judges being a metal worker, they didn't seem to know what they were talking about at all or care one bit about what the artists intention or message was. They kind of made dumb and rude assumptions about people's work without even asking or having them do a write up about it like in the glass show. Also I'm going to start watching Big Brother, I don't know what made me decide this, but I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna consume this trash and probably enjoy it.

No. 165478

The real Roman and Gerri stuff isn't til season 2 so if you genuinely can't get into it, you'll have a while to wait. But ime the humour really grows on you and you'll likely end up enjoying it, the tone is so serious and the characters are so unlikeable that it kind of obscures the comedy until you get used to it.

>I love a chance to see Joe fuck up.
I'm catching up (only halfway through s2 rn) but annoyingly enough I can't relate so far. I feel like the narrative kinda forces you to root for Joe even if you think he's an evil psycho? He's the protagonist and we see everything from his perspective, the story is mainly watching him solve problems and moving the story forward by doing crazy shit. It's like I want him to succeed just for entertainment value and to keep the momentum going. Plus they keep giving him random children to selflessly protect and random lines about privilege or w/e showcasing how woke he is.

It's a weird watch but I'm enjoying it anyway.

I watched Adult Material recently and it really stuck with me. I thought I would be able to read many discussions and reviews about it, but of course the men at Reddit aren't interested in the stark realities of a working class mum juggling porn and parenting. Mumsnet had a better discussion.

It was a difficult watch and some of the choices were strange but imo it did a good job of examining the idealistic concept of consent in a world where less privileged women have less choice and long term results of trauma like disassociation and passing on trauma

Watched the second season of channel zero. It was as silly as you'd expect a tv show based on creepypasta to be, but I enjoyed it even though it wasn't really what I was expecting.

Lots of birth imagery.

I'll check them out once finals are over. I want to give AHS a go too.

I didn't really find any of it scary, but I enjoyed the story and thought the imagery and symbolism was really creative and cool. Like the cannibalism scenes using pomegranates to allude to the legend of Demeter and Persephone.

Not to feminismsperg, but I though it was strange reviews kind of ignored that aspect in favour of the themes of grief (which granted is also a big part of the show). Everything the male characters did, and all the imagery like the big glowing pregnant stomach and the people curled up in pools of blood in the fetal position- it's a pretty big part of the story.

I gave And Just Like That (Sex and the City sequel) a chance and here are my thoughts. Just a note that it’s been a while since I’ve watched the original. So far only two episodes are out.

Spoiler Free

>episode 1

Starts out rough. The direction and camera quality gives it an uncanny feeling for SaTC which isn’t helped by the acting and humor which comes at you way too strong and too quickly. I would have much preferred a Carrie voiceover to ease you in back into the vibe instead of just jumping straight back in like it used to be because it can’t really be the same. I’d say the first 2/3 of the episode are hard to assimilate and can rub people the wrong way because you aren’t sure what kind of position the show will take on 2020 culture compared to its 90’s mindset – will it pander or will it criticize? Will it be tone-deaf or insightful? However, I will say that by the end of the second act and in the third act it starts to pick up and you can settle into the SaTC feel even if everything is new and different. The episode ends with a big plot developing point which kicks the series into an actual story.

>episode 2

Much easier to watch. The humor becomes more like the original and the situations the women find themselves in are presented in a more subtle way and don’t make you go “oh no, cringe” as much as in the first one (except maybe Miranda’s storyline which can hover over cringe territory but I suppose it fits her character). There’s more emotional investment due to the story compared to ep1 which was mostly fluff and in general reels you back in. It’s best to watch ep1+2 back to back to be convinced to into continuing the show.

Samantha’s absence was handled in a somewhat fitting way, maybe a bit tongue-in-cheek but imo it doesn’t hurt the story as much as people fear and she is technically still very much present in the events and story development even if she’s not there (ep2 does it better than ep1).

The show is aware the cast are not young adults anymore, maybe a little too aware because they tend to overdo the “we’re old now” message. Personally, I’m not a fan of the “life ends at 50” mindset but I’m not fond of “50 is the new 30” idea either. So far the show is graceful in handling the question of what life should be like at that life stage and hasn’t shown us what it means yet since it’s only 2 episodes in and we’re about see what’s going to happen.

Also, unpopular opinion but I think SJP looks great. She’s just not photogenic. She’s always been better in motion and I think she retains her girlish demeanor while being aged gracefully. She’s not a granny, just Carrie with wrinkles.

Personally, I will continue watching. If you’re a fan of SaTC and go into it without bias or sticks up the ass it can be a pleasant viewing.

>Also, unpopular opinion but I think SJP looks great. She’s just not photogenic.
Happy to see someone else thinks the same. She has such a regal and visually interesting face to me and I think season 5's styling played to her features nicely. Then the pictures make her look plain and everyone feels free to focus on the head-on nose.

The pandering/criticism teetering had me on edge. The three are playing along with nervous laughs and appeasement the way a lot of older American women do which feels like a facet of life that can be portrayed in the show but there's just so much of the "eccentric" characters when they would usually be relegated to one episode at a time in the main series. Very much not looking forward to the podcast boss even if she had a nice moment with Miranda at the end, and it was nice they didn't drag the two's fight past the uncomfortable revelation.

It's been a few years since I've seen this so I thought I might give it a rewatch but I don't think it holds up well. Not as funny as I remember and I don't care about all the romance like with Jim and Pam or Michael and Jan, I want more funny day to day stuff in the office. Season 1 which everyone claims is the worst was actually the funniest but only 6 episodes.

God, I so agree abt SJP and feel like I have nowhere to put this opinion b/c it's not worth getting into it with men around. I'm so, so glad she never got a nose job, I completely agree with nona who describes her as regal. I was watching old episodes this weekend, and I was just blown away by how much I enjoy looking at her. That combo of her blue eyes, huge curls, and sharp features is just so striking. She doesn't look like a Disney princess or a porn star or an insta queen or whatever, but jesus, there are other kinds of beauty.

On that note, I agree that I haaate what Kristen did to her face, but I really loved spending 2ish hours just…looking at women in their fifties who haven't pulled their faces taut. I feel like I have no models of what cool, stylish womanhood that is okay with not being eternally babyfaced looks like, and it makes me so scared of growing older. I felt so much better after just this.

Wrt to the episodes, I went into expecting to hate the podcast shit, so I was okay, lol. The Miranda stuff is a bit much, but I also think it fits her character and I'm interested in the idea of a Miranda who's spinning out and trying to be ultra-woke to find her way back – especially since it seems like they might have her and the professor bond over the latter's anxiety over kids. As long as this series can keep its main focus on women's lives and experiences, I'm okay. I will fucking lose my mind if Lily ends up nb though

No. 173853

All of your thoughts really resonate with me. I'm the regal anon and it makes me sad we can't even complement her or women like her without the standard "her body is good but her face is busted" response. SJP just really captures the eye when she moves and I think that's lovely. I wonder if the in-character fears are based on input from the actresses or what the writers think about after engaging with them, like with Charlotte's "age hiding attempts" and Miranda's "letting herself look old". I really appreciate Miranda and Cynthia either way.

I didn't even think of them making the kid nonbinary. Here's to hoping it doesn't happen.>>173718

No. 173908

love your picrel nonna
I'm kinda at loss for words right now, so feel free to correct me.
I feel like season 3 was most peaked in episode 6.
Especially the lead up to Roman managed to persuade that one dude to be the next president, and Logan declared out loud that he's a climate denier (I thought that was smooth aaaaas fuck), and Shiv's hesitation to be in the family photo - in which I tinfoiled that family photoshoot has been the only thing Roy family consistently managed to uphold in there tradition (thus the opening!!). I liked it, I liked how Shiv from times and times again she was given a decision to morally corrupt herself or to be "with the family", so episode 6 was seems to me the last straw that she saw the future of the country will get Fucked, and she still had to… negotiate that
So uh after ep 6 for me it was a downward escalator for Kendall's mental stage, as his bravado decision to get away from the Roy family, and came to realization that no outsider will stick for him unlike his family (hence he tried to appeal to a more progressive group but getting backfired)
I think I understood what they were going for, but it felt like… a slowly deflated balloon kind of ending for me in compare to the last two seasons' endings.

I guess I'm just being a spoiled audience but I was expecting an "oh shittttt whaddupppp!!!" kind of finale so I can just wrap up the year and feel good about it, but now I'm just like… meh…

Oh yeah they really play up with the Tom/Greg in ep 7-8 lmao. While I don't know the stage of fandom (at all) aside from my friend who has makes jokes about "tomelette with (gr)egg". Shiv and Roman banter brings the most joy to me in season 3, I want more sibling jabs like that so much.

Another rich family white people show with siblings and in-laws having fun (bad toilet joke) banter for me is Grace and Frankie. I need a rewatch of it soon, have you watched it nonna? I like it a lot.

>I guess I'm just being a spoiled audience but I was expecting an "oh shittttt whaddupppp!!!" kind of finale so I can just wrap up the year and feel good about it, but now I'm just like… meh…
idk it felt like an oh shit ending to me, like a business red wedding kek. Mainly because all season I was waiting for Tom to do some betraying. Like, he was obviously bitter af that everyone was so okay with him going to jail, he constantly gave Shiv opportunities to reassure him and she always dismissed him. At first I thought he was gonna go to Kendall's side or make a deal with the DOJ or something, then he told Kendall he was gonna get fucked and the DOJ stuff got mostly resolved so I stopped expecting it. It didn't occur to me that he'd betray Shiv for Logan, but it makes total sense in retrospect. Ep 6 was really strong ia and I was thinking it's weird that the storyline didn't really build on it, but maybe it's similar in that it's being pushed back for later plot development? But yeah I loved ep 9 for the performances, the siblings banding together, Roman standing up to his dad for once, Kendall being validated for what he's been saying all along about Logan and his confession to the siblings, Shiv's conversation with her mom… seeing them all get simultaneously fucked over was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. They aren't good people or competent enough to run the company but their parents are so scary and abusive I still root for them.

I'm all about the banter too honestly I feel like the best part of this season has been the humour. Plot aside I've been laughing out loud so much, way more than in other seasons, and even if the plot felt like it was stalling sometimes I was so thoroughly entertained by the dialogue I didn't mind a bit. Everything out of Greg and Roman's mouth is gold especially.

No. 173959

WAIT WAIT wait oh shit.
Okay I think the last two eps of season 3 were underwhelming for me because I couldn't catch on some of the important plot progress.

Like in the end of episode 8, Kendall being drunk and fell off the in the pool. I read it as… just it was, dude is sad and drunk and fell into pool. Cut to black.

I wonder if it's just the cinematography or it's just that I've too dense to not even catch on an obvious suicide attempt from Kendall. Honestly when ep9 started with everyone's freaking out about Ken, I was like ??? omg what did I miss, I thought we were left off with Gerri about to be fired for Roman's dick pic

OKAY so when you told me Tom had decided to Shiv, I was?? WAIT?? THAT HAPPENED?? I did read the scene where Shiv called him to prepare the attack, and Tom asked Gregg to be his attack dog, in the most solemn expression… I suppose I had read the scene as it was, that Tom was just going to be royal to her and Gregg doing his biddings.

What gave out that he betrayed her? I want to know!! I mean I understood that the entire season 3 was just Shiv continuously made Tom feeling worthless than he were, but it got over my mind and just accepted it like in previous seasons he got the worse when Logan made him crawl and squeal like a pig or something and Holyshit that was A LOT. But he picked himself up anyways so, yeah. Huh.

I just heard about this and I'm really curious, but a little wary (a lot less so hearing you say the teen girls are portrayed well, though, and that Kusama's involved). How intense is the violence? I can handle some, I just wanna know what to prepare myself for.

tbh I thought the thing with Kendall was a bit ambiguous, I didn't think it was a suicide attempt. I thought maybe he would pass out from drinking, or he could have been 're-enacting' the waiter drowning since Logan was forcing him to think about what it would have been like. Obviously it was clear he wasn't in a good state of mind.

But yeah sis you def should re-watch the last scene. After Logan fucks the kids over and leaves it cuts to him patting Tom on the shoulder, he evidently tipped Logan off that they were coming meaning he could change the divorce settlement and win. This was right after him getting Greg on board for making a 'deal with the devil', maybe it was a bit subtle but it was confirmed by the actors/directors etc so it's not speculation. There was also a lot of less obvious foreshadowing like Logan telling Shiv she married someone below her because she wanted someone who would never betray her, details like Tom mentioning talking to the same divorce lawyer as Logan and Caroline, it's possible he's been feeding Logan info most of the season. The way Shiv treats him was getting worse and worse, she even straight up told him she didn't love him

Also, I didn't realize it as I watched but pic related was the moment when Shiv realized Tom betrayed her. She talks about it in an interview here https://ew.com/tv/succession-season-3-finale-sarah-snook/

Regarding the dick pic it seems like ultimately it just destroyed Roman's credibility in Logan's eyes rather than affected Gerri's job security.

i also thought julie was cringe or at least the trope that she's built on (rich privileged girl fighting for the underprivileged) but in the end i really loved her and the scenes of her and miller when he finally finds her on eros are really beautiful. idk if i ever considered them a ship or anything, to me it always felt more like miller has paternal feelings for her and to julie, miller is the father figure that jules never was, maybe? but it's still incredibly beautiful.

It's extremely boring and yet I'm somehow captivated, I guess releasing only 2 episodes per week works on it's favor because they're over before I realize I'm wasting time. Bleak is a very good word to describe it, everyone is being so careful and polite so far it lacks proper drama, maybe with the arrival of new people things will change a bit?
If you haven't seen I really recommend Rea(L)ove, also on Netflix, it's both dramatic and hilarious, hosts are a bit mean at times but in a fun way. The participants are the most interesting bunch I've seen in any reality tv because of all of these dark secrets, tbh it seems like Japan really is lacking in mental health department and it's hard to not feel bad for some of them but it still makes for an excellent tv most of the time, too bad there's only one season.

Just like the second movie, this sequel did not need to happen. It even manages to exceed the second movie on the intense amount of cringe it generates. I get that the old sex and the city didn’t age well but the turbowokeness, overall script, illogical and random fucking plots like big dying and just the general tone of it all is so bad, so so bad.

I'm feeling really conflicted about AJLT tbh. I actually think the Charlotte plotline this past week was really well-handled – I totally believe she'd freak out about having no black friends, and it ended with her and LTW in a good place. I also like that Big died, both b/c I was never super into him and because I think Carrie's struggle w/ grief has been well-handled. I even like the idea of Miranda spinning out and trying to be as pc as possible – I said this all upthread, but I believe that for her. And I really like that they're emphasizing her and Nya bonding over how hard being a working mother is. I really like that this is sort of working as an analysis of Miranda's own choice to have Brady – she loves him, but he's also a top tier fuckboy and she's definitely at an age where she'd be thinking about how much she gave up to have him.

But everything having to do with the podcast is fucking awful. Che is obnoxious, modern woo woo gender politics don't make any sense in a show about middle-aged women, and it fucking sucks to tune into one of the few shows about 50+ women to see a woman like Carrie get shit on for being uncomfortable with porn talk. She's a fucking elder stateswoman of her field at this point, she should have her own fucking podcast. The Rose shit is awful and sexist and stupid. I'm the anon upthread who said I'd consider the show a win if she didn't end up being nb, and, welp On the one hand, SATC made some dumb calls. On the other hand, literally nobody shits on dude shows of the same era. It was in a shit position, but this still wasn't the way to handle it. I wish they'd just leaned into the fact that it's about older women, which is enough bs to be dealing with, even though they're all rich and white and blah blah blah.

I saw it mentioned earlier in the thread, but I recommend Grace and Frankie. The main characters are 70+ and it's obviously targeted at an older generation who can relate to their problems more, but I comfort watch the 3 first seasons on the regular, after that the storylines get a bit stale. I also like it because it's the only show I've seen my 60+ mother laugh out loud at, while arguing with her friend about which one of them is the most Frankie.

No. 176135

Totally agree. It's funny, I don't actually LOVE any of the individual storylines of the movie – Charlotte barely has one, I'm not super into Big, Steve cheating just made me not want Miranda to stay with him, and Samantha…actually I liked Samantha's storyline, even though I love Smith, lol. But none of that matters, weirdly – I still really enjoy watching the movie? It's just a lot of fun. That fun is definitely missing from AJLT. I feel like there's a sweet spot they could have hit, where there could be that fun and a more serious edge that tackles the modern world. I mean, shit, I'd say that the original show totally nails that – it's frothy, yeah, but it was always tackling tough shit. But it's leaned way too far into tackling EVERYTHING in really ham-fisted ways.

Ugh, what frustrates me most is that I think there were a million ways they could have gotten more overtly political that would have been better and are way more set up in the original show. Like, bring back the power lesbians and tweak Rose's storyline into her just being a young butch! We could have gotten the same "Charlotte's un-girly daughter" storyline, but less stupid and also already tied into Charlotte's life, since she was the one who was super drawn to all those cool gay women! Or like, specifically tie Miranda's desire to do law work that matters to metoo, she'd 100% have been following that. She makes a ton of very cynical feminist comments in the original show. Shit, there are a million things they could do with metoo. And I like Nya and LTW, they can stay, even.

It's just…right now, watching it feels like being scolded at least 30% of the time. Women already feel like that all the fucking time. Shit, who grew up watching SATC and DIDN'T hide it from the men around them, because they knew they'd be made fun of? I don't need the show itself lecturing me. Especially b/c like…this is anecdata, but I think it's probably happening in a lot of households: I'm watching this with my mom and sister. We're all hispanic. We love the show. And we're cringing at this. I really don't think we're alone. The show was really white! Okay! It's good we're talking about that now! It's good new shows address that! But also…our Spanish-speaking asses still loved the original, and we've always related to them as women, and that's what matters most. By all means, bring in the new non-white actresses, tackle it a little, have Harry blurt out "ZADIE SMITH!," etc. But I don't need this show to whip itself for its sins, because I already love it, and no one ever asks like, the Sopranos to do the same thing.

Have any anons watched why women kill? The first season was very meh imo since it got ruined by the modern couple and the whole weird polygamy shit but I really loved the second season and it was a lot better than the first. I love the overall feel of the show it feels very whimsical and over the top, it has like, edwardscissor hand vibes minus edward, with the narration and soundtrack it’s just really fun.

Me too I binged the whole thing today and I'm so obsessed! Ty original anon.
(Let me preface this by saying I love Juliette Lewis, she's rad as fuck, I love how she looks and I love her acting)
There's only one thing bothering me about it, but the fact that Juliette Lewis looks older than everybody else and doesn't look like her younger character is throwing me off.
I get that she's canonically an addict and that would age her, but unless she's been methed out in a sunbed for 10 years straight it feels off.
I thought the casting was so excellent in general, it made the time hops go so smoothly in my mind. But Juliette Lewis is so interesting looking and is like the opposite of Sophie Thatcher facially, with the age difference as well I struggled to remember that they were the same person most of the time.
It's stupid and I feel bad because I want to see Juliette Lewis in so many things. Maybe if they'd gone with a different actress for young!Natalie it wouldn't bother me as much

For me that was part of the problem, I couldn't see the mannerisms, they were both gothy messed up white trash who liked drinking but they weren't the same person, like I couldn't see how one evolves into the other really at all.
It might just be because young Natalie doesn't have much character besides developing a relationship with Travis, she didn't have the screen time to make decisions or have reactions in the same way the other characters did that really showed their personalities.

Have any of you watched Wentworth? I'm an American but it's sort of like an Australian Orange is the New Black(which I never finished). I learned about it during my hair appointment 3 weeks ago. I was getting highlights and the stylist next to mine brought it up. So I went home and watched. My mom and I watched season 1 to season 2 episode 3. Then I had one more week of school so before break so I went back to my school state. While I was gone I didn't really watch it and mom finished season 2 up to season 3 episode 9. So during break we just started there, and finished it

It just completed and has 8 seasons Including the theme song and intro it has 45 minute episodes, first season has 10 episodes, rest have 12, except the final season which has 20. It was interesting and has murder, violence, drugs, not to graphic sex scenes, interesting characters, and changing characters and arcs. There is a TIM and a TIF in this story. I didn't see most of the TIM story since I didn't see most of seasons 2 or 3, so I don't know where he enters. The TIF gets a couple episodes in the last season. Apparently this show is a reimagining of some older Australian show called Prisoner or Prisoner H. All in all it was an interesting show to watch. You will wonder about the Australian remand process since some characters spend months without a trial and then become worst criminals by being in this prison. Give it a watch if you want

Maybe I'm lookist and materialistic but I was struck by how much more attractive the participants are compared to American/Euro dating shows. Especially Si hun, I thought he was an actual child and 22/23 tops but he's 30 I think? Obviously they've all had work done but it seems far more tempered compared to the blow-up doll, haggard-looking style on western shows. At least the bimbofication trend hasn't taken over in Korea. Here are Love Island participants by comparison, all 3 women with puffy faces, fake tans and mouths agape like fish sucking in water

No. 177198

No. You just have your own taste which you're allowed to have. Also, women should be more lookist, who gives a shit. It's just personal opinion. My opinion is the opposite of yours. I don't think the singles inferno people are attractive at all. I don't think the men on singles inferno are hot, I don't find the women attractive either. But the men are worse. None of them inspire any sexual thought in me. I also don't think the Love Island ones you linked look "haggard" although their aesthetic is not my style and I'd never wanna look like them.

I took a break from this but just started watching again. The dialogue in this season is starting to bother me. The characters are always saying these one liners that try to be clever and quirky but it doesn't sound natural. I don't know any people who speak like this in real life.

Rea(L)ove is one of the best dating shows of all time imo. I wish they'd make a second season or an American spinoff.

I started watching this and it's so slow. I've had to skip through most of the hosts' commentary.

I think they did a really good job casting the girls on the show. But all of the guys other than Jinteok look the same and have basically the same personalities. If I had to talk to most of them for more than 30 mins at a time I would kms.

No. 177277

I know this is an old post but I just finished watching the ending and I thought it was good (at the very least I liked the solution they had in the end). The only reason why I kept watching was because I liked the main characters because outside of that the show has a lot of flaws: the characters doing dumb shit in a high stake heist, ~love conquers all, psycho male characters treating everyone, especially women, like trash but we have to ignore it because Nairobi did a feminism™, and the Professor is just not executing plans immediately that could have saved a couple of lives because the audience has to be tricked into thinking that he's cornered when he's not??

Also, I really hated how they tried (and failed) to paint Berlin as a bad guy and when they realized that he's the audience's favorite they keep bringing him back in stupid flashbacks that don't need to exist.

So I've finally started watching Euphoria and even though I saw my fair share of really sexualized tv shows about high schoolers, this shit is next level, and knowing it's written by a male (as if that isn't obvious even without checking too) makes it even worse.

Wanna talk about Gotham, I watched the show religiously, I participated fandom and I have a love/hate relationship with the show overall, I Just wanna talk about the First season though, its where most fans are split on
The first season is weird in how less weird it is compared to how the show would got to be, certain plot points and characters feel more at home with a show like the CSI then a DCshow and its fairly grounded(well as grounded as most police procedural cop shows are)

Like the most unbelievable things that happen in the first season are 1) A drug called Viper which gives people above average physical strength but kills them afterwards if they didn't keep using it and 2) A hypnotized serial killer that targets the wealthy and both these plot points could work in any CSI/criminal minds-esquce cop show, most of the season is about the rise of a child of an immigrant through the mob by backstabbing, deceiving and murdering all in his path and he just happens to be the Penguin, other then a slightly bent nose and a choice to wear suits first season Gotham penguin has nothing in common with any interpretations/adaptations of Penguin ever

Season 2 is where the insanity starts arising and by season 3 people are coming back from the dead, people have super strength and are bulletproof and everything is a like a live action edgy comic book

Most fans prefer the other seasons but I personally do find a charm in the first season in how its just a cop show set in Gotham and how ridiculous Batman villains are adapted as gangsters with nicknames or serial killers, would have been interesting if they continued that path but I'm not complaining, I did like the show

Watched Midnight Mass. Really enjoyed it, but found the sitcom-tier old age makeup incredibly distracting. I thought the monologues were an interesting style, but some of them were asinine or felt really out of place. Especially that moment where the doctor lady asks the cop if he's planning on doing anything about the cult who've disappeared 3 people in as many days and gave their congregation drugs that make their blood explode and he starts talking about how 9/11 affected him personally for like 5 straight minutes. It also drove me insane that the characters who weren't brainwashed didn't just take a rowboat a mile off shore with some snacks and wait out the inevitable gorefest. It felt horribly contrived that they'd just decide to waltz into the viper's nest with no plan and hope things work out. That useless cop at least brought a gun.

That said, I absolutely loved the villainous characters, and the shots of the vampire in the shadows looked cool. My ma kept missing them so I'd have to rewind and point them out to her.

NTA and been a while since I watched it. Most of her outfits make sure to still show some skin and be 'sexy'-crop tops, little shorts, tight clothes etc. (compare and contrast the way Franky was portrayed in the season of Skins where the guy responsible for most of that show's coomer shit had fucked off to make the failed American reboot). We see her pissing on the toilet, we see her doing drugs and puking in voyeuristic detail-the whole show has big voyeur energy, like the director wishes he could peek into every private detail of a teen girl's life through her bedroom window. We see her lounging around at home in a boyfriend shirt and little shorts a lot. There's that porny scene where she shows up to prom all dolled up by Hunter and the tranny chaser character humiliates and sexually intimidates her. There's that scene where she's high at that drug dealer's house and his boss almost rapes her, and that flashback to her getting raped by some teen scrote while too high to move. These are both played like porn and she gains no real psychological trauma from any of this. The whole plot is an AGP fantasy about dating a lesbian as a man (the director is clearly a tranny chaser, and chasers tend to be closeted trannies themselves).

also I guess i'm unable to suspend my disbelief enough for this show but I don't get why so many people called Fez/Cal/Ashtray scene "hilarious".

My best friend got me to watch the show, so he got to rewatch it through me, and two of my friends are stil watching it, so I'm rewatching through them. It's funny how so many people (in my circles, at least) started watching or rewatching Sopranos a couple of months ago. I guess it's contagious.
I never cared about Vito until his arc in season 6, I actually consider him one of my favorite parts of the season. He could've gotten love and acceptance, but the mob life was too strong and he got pulled back in. Like when Silvio quotes the Godfather… "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in", except he pulled himself back in. Its a parasitic lifestyle, it becomes such a big part of who you are that you can't get rid of it. I like Meadow and I hope she doesn't end up like Carm, but it seems like she won't be able to leave behind the lifestyle she grew up in. Maybe the moment she rejected Berkeley is when she doomed herself, but Janice moved away too and it didn't save her either.
I find Carmela's character very interesting in the sense that she chose that lifestyle, she wasn't born into it like Janice or Meadow or Adriana, and she sticks to her choice and stays by Tony's side.
I loved the ending too, my heart was beating so hard when Meadow was trying to park. I think it was an amazing ending, and even though a lot of theories point out that they probably did Tony in, I believe that he didn't die. I just prefer thinking that he spent the rest of his years constantly paranoid that someone would come get him, until someone finally came and got him. I hated him by the end of the show, but like the fed, I kinda didn't want to see him die. I wanted to see him suffer the consequences of his actions. Him not dying and having to live in a constant state of paranoia and anxiety due to his own actions. I noticed that a lot of the second half of season 6 was just Tony pushing the people around him away, alienating himself from them.
Pls keep sperging about Sopranos to me, nonna, I love talking about the show. I even got that Talking Sopranos book, lol

I love the sopranos!! I just started it and Im already hooked on it
While I was watching it I couldn’t believe that euphoria is an hbo show… it’s so cheap and pornographic you can’t even hate watch it. it looks like it belongs to netflix but honestly all of the new hbomax shows feel that way
The rise of streaming services might have been a mistake

I watched this yesterday thanks to you nonny, I liked it a lot. Obviously full of interesting female characters, but Bertha spoke to me especially at the end when she was quietly sobbing in her bed because hardly anyone came to her lavish party but then she whips up and snarls "I will never give up!" I actually said "fuck yeah" out loud at that point kek. Sometimes we need a good cry but a strong woman never lets anyone keep her down

No. 183382

I loved that too! I love that we see her both in top bitch "I'LL GET MY REVENGE" mode, and "sobbing in my giant pink bed" mode. Can't wait to see a juicy scene with her and Baranski.

I just finished watching In My Skin and I found it fantastic. It's based on the high school life of the writer who hid that her mother had bipolar disorder from everyone she knew. It was a heartbreaking yet touching watch, season 2 is a bit more uplifting. Cherry on top for me is that the MC is also a lesbian and this was really well handled imo

No. 183454

nta but ackshuyally franky started showing more skin later on (mainly around season 6) and eventually stopped looking gnc altogether although from what i heard it's because the actress playing her got tired of binding down her chest.

No. 183524

Like I said, Skins had two directors (a father and a son). Effy was the disgusting coomer father's waifu. He fucked off for a season or two which is how we got Franky, but then he came back and restyled her in Effy's image. There's some podcast episode where Franky's actress talks about how as soon as he came back he looked at her swimsuit for the beach scene in the upcoming season (a modest shorts-style thing), said "not sexy enough" and got them to change it to a bikini. BTW he had all the actresses line up wearing their swimsuits so he could ogle them and decide if they met his standards.

Very late to the party but I started watching this when I needed a distraction. Thought it would be trashy mindless entertainment, and it is, but it's also pretty clever? It is nasty, mostly because of the excessive nudity especially considering the age the characters are supposed to be, but when I allow myself pure "trains colliding" morbid fascination? Then yeah, it's great entertainment. Everyone is a massive fuckup, underhanded, petty, degenerate and pathetically nihilistic, which is why it's enjoyable seeing how badly they can fuck each other over and what stupid schemes they'll get involved in next. Ngl, I also thought ep. 9 in the first season was genuinely touching, which came as a suprise. I'm shocked they stepped away from the shitshow for a full hour to show a conversation in a diner between two characters about drugs, addiction, family, consumerism and life. And frankly it came across very natural.
I do hate that real teenagers probably watch this and think it's normal or what their lives should be, but zoomers are already dealing with porn and social media-induced brainrot we didn't have on this level decades ago. At the very least the show never says "this stuff is great" but focuses on how it's ruining everyone's lives, so if this is what they turn to, it could be worse. As an old hag not taking it seriously, it's just fun drama.

You season 3, seriously what the fuck was anybody thinking with this, the show has completely jumped the shark and I don't even what it's trying to be anymore

Originally it was a dark deconstruction of rom-coms and how a rom-com protagonist IRL would be a delusional obsessive psychopath and actually fucking terrifying
but now with season 3 they have turned into a dark comedy, there no subverting anything really, just making a "quirky" murder show with edgy humor, I actually fucking lost my shit when Sherry and Cary not only escaped from the cage but had a Ted talk about the whole thing in the end and marketed the idea as a form of couple's therapy like wtf was that, literally what point were they trying to make, also getting a tragic backstory for Joe also feels wrong, It takes away from what Joe is supposed to be represent and is making him entirely separate character

No. 184746

I’m curious about this show, any more info without spoiling too much? Also does the main character constantly get treated like shit? I’m looking for something with a female lead but I’m getting tired of them always ending up as the butt of every joke.

I didn't like season 2 because of how much they started creating differences between a book and TV Show. My nitpick was TUrning Love into a Mary Sue-tier pick me and deciding to make a twist where his first GF is alive. It's stupid. But I genuinely enjoyed season 3, all because Victoria Pedretti carried the hell out of it. This actress is amazing at playing unhinged characters, seriously.
I didn't like how much they decided to start pandering to SJWtrend, as in who would care about a suddenly blind ginger gay man that is together with a black man, and of course le 'strong black single mother' stereotype. it felt incredibly forced. why? I also do not understand how people liked her, after all both she and Joe were cheating while thinking 'oh no, this is so, so wrong!! I will keep fucking him'. All of the 'main characters' were extremely unlikable..

I still enjoy Joe Goldberg as a character, the actor is great but I am worried about what Netflix is going to do with its 4th season. A lot of things felt like too much and unnecessary. I also agree with the MUH TRAGIC PAST!!! adding.
Also, 'wannabe empowering' tiny speech at the last episode was stupid. What were they trying to do with that? kek, Were they also trying to be 'hip and cool' by adding 'fuck anti-vaxxers' excuse for killing the man instead of making something up? The details of this season felt like they saw some random persons twitter and decided to fill plot holes with their tweets.
Regardless, I still enjoyed S3 because of Love Quinn. too bad they killed her, unless they pull some riverdale-tier shit.

I really didn't mind Marienne, she felt a character that actually belongs in the show

No. 184774


I still didn't like how she knew that Joe is unhinged and that they are literally cheating on his wife but they still kept doing that, happy she grew a brain and left in the end. Honestly was hoping she wouldn't allow the cheating part, other than that she's good. Still wondering if she will take a part of the new season. And I agree, she would have fit the first season better.

were you really invested in Joe x Love, its in character for Joe to cheat and lose interest in women when he has them

also they've made Joe way less creepy and delusional then he was compared to Season 1, If he's not a creepy obsessive stalker then what's the point
I feel this is just a way to pander to the demographic who watches You to hear Joe being "sassy

Main character makes it a personal mission to attempt to find a missing girl. I think Dory (Alia Shawkat's character) is a pretty interesting protagonist for a female lead. The show is a comedy but she's never particularly the butt of any jokes.

No, I wasn't. I meant as in I was hoping that the woman wouldn't fall for him and cheat together (but of course, Netflix can't make a show without sex scenes). She literally knew what they were doing is wrong.

I still feel giving Joe a set backstory is a mistake, giving him one sets him up as a character and not what he's supposed to represent and in the first novel It was only vaguely implied that he had an abusive home life and we were left to wonder what happened to him to make that way
