I just started the second season of Upload and god I forgot how much the writing sucks. I really enjoy these kinds of sci-fi concepts. The ideas around consciousness, technology and transcending death and how that affects human relationships. But it's made so lazily. There are so many shows I've tried with cool concepts that have missed their potential. But now I'm invested, I have to see it through lol

I want to watch Fleabag. Is it worth it? I like Andrew Scott and the priest trope. What kind of mood is this show for?
Hm…Overall, I'd say it's a show for when you want something truly darkly comedic, in a really female way. People call things "dark comedies" a lot, but I think Fleabag really qualifies in a uniquely potent way – it's very much about the really bizarre humor found in incredibly dark points in one's life. Season 1 and 2 are kind of different beasts, though, but not in a bad way, though fyi the priest is not in season 1 at all. Season 1 centers around the protagonist dealing with every awful part of herself, really bleak (but funny). Season 2 has the priest, and is more…light-hearted isn't accurate, but it does come to mind. I'd say it's for when you want a romance between two weary, world-beaten people.
Seconding this. Fleabag was the show that made me realize I have to pay all my attention to female writers. A masterpiece imo, truly dark and truly funny, completely human and undeniably for women. That it's a huge hit with lesbians despite being a het show with one queerbait scene is neither here nor there though. She basically says she goes both ways but the entire show is about her fixation on men and getting validation from them and the one encounter she has with a lesbian is sweet but it felt out of place to me.
It's still my favorite of all time.

How did you guys feel about The White Lotus on HBO? It’s a miniseries and I thought it was a pretty interesting drama. I love Jen Coolidge. I hated how that one chick didn’t leave her asshole husband

I just finished Physical and loved it. I think it's an Apple TV+ show, but it's gotten 0 buzz – I found out about it by chance. Really dark in a very Fleabagish way. Rose Byrne plays Sheila, a housewife in early-80s SoCal who's miserable but in that sort of functional way people can float in forever. Shitty "male feminist" husband – the first scene is him trying to make a threesome between him, her, and one of his undergrads happen. The big arc of the series is how she falls in love with aerobics, and ends up building an empire – don't know the details yet, but we see a few tiny flash forwards.
The most striking thing about the show imho is the narration, which is her absolutely brutal internal monologue. She's bulimic and depressed and it's just really, really raw in that Fleabag way, to the point that I'd say it's not something you should watch if you're not in a solid place. Like, we hear her nasty thoughts about other women's bodies, the way she sneers at literally anyone eating, etc. But it's really, really, really well captured. There are a few moments that made me sit up like Fleabag did, because they captured really dark female moments I'd never seen on screen before. And really fucking amazing stuff from Rose Byrne. It's still a bit rough around the edges, but I'm really glad I watched it.

SA – and Hacks! I made a big rec post for this on the old thread, I loooove it and am so happy it got awards. Zoomer comedy girl (Ava) and Joan Rivers-ish standup diva legend (Deborah) end up having to work together. What I love most is that there's a lot of comedy mined from their conflict, but so much of it is actually about Ava coming to realize she blows Deborah off as the "QVC muumuu lady" b/c of industry sexism. She has to really reckon with the dark heart of what comedy did and still does to women, and how she's just as much a tool of it even though she's an ultra-woke 20something. And Deborah also has to realize she can't just blow Ava off as a dumb Twitter kid! Honestly, the entire cast is so great, literally every character is fantasically written and acted, but like I love Fleabag for championing basically the shittiest woman you know, I love Hacks for basically being like "actually the ~cringe~ comedienne your great aunt loves who sells foot baths on qvc is a fucking god no matter what your 'comedy nerd' ex bf has to say about it."

Rec'd this in a previous thread but I really loved Tokyo Girl. It's not as dark and sarcastic as Fleabag but it's very real about women's struggles in the professional and romantic realms especially for a series from E. Asia. You follow a girl from 23 to 40 as she moves from a little rural town to Tokyo in the hopes of becoming a careerwoman and she grows as a person so much. She tries to make it work with all sorts of men who ultimately are using her for their own purposes in different ways, struggles with the idea of starting a family and what it would mean/what society would expect of her, until she ultimately works out a way to build her own little sense of peace and joy alongside other women she's met along the way. I ended up bingeing the whole thing in a day and it's still one of my favorite series. Definitely underrated/hidden gem. Written and directed by women.

does anyone else here watch my brilliant friend? 3rd series started a few weeks ago. i love this show so much and actually started watching it because my mom recommended it. she also ended up reading the books but i haven't yet.
i heard this is the last season with these two actresses which makes me kind of depressed because they're so good. the girl who plays lila is definitely destined for bigger things. i've also never related more to a character than lenu.
yes, definitely keep watching. you won't regret it. there's so much more to the story that builds on their childhood, try to pay attention to all the characters that appear early on in their neighborhood because most of them are reoccurring/draw parallels in both Lila and Lenu's lives. >>190507
I feel that it's so rare for a person like Lenu to be the main character. it really is special that a show like this is made.
you can watch more jesse armstrong (the main writer) shows ex: peep show, the thick of it etc.
VEEP also if you wanna stay on HBO. similar feel to it

Just finished season 1, watching this for the first time since it was rec’d to me after I finished “It’s Always Sunny” and “Curb your Enthusiasm”, it’s kinda funny but damn, it’s a bummer to watch super-straight man Michael deal with the rest of this family
At least in other shows they’re all at a similar level of awfulness. Does he get more weird as the series goes on?

Which anons here have seen Inventing Anna? I started watching but I keep getting kind of annoyed by how fucking dumb most of the characters are (I feel like this is the case for most Shonda Rhimes shows though?) Maybe I should have watched Euphoria instead?

watch Black Sails for pirates and Galavant for a medieval musical that's quite funny
Same. Fandom treats Shiv like shit but I love her so much. I feel like misogyny is really big theme in Succession and Shiv carries most of that meaning>>190980
If you watch Euphoria you shouldn’t expect much from the story. I enjoyed it a lot, but only because the direction/cinematography is heavily stylized. It’s more notable in S2 than it is in S1.>>192268
I watched up to the ninth episode and stopped after the main characters/love interests kissed. It was really awkward because they don’t have much chemistry, and it’s hard to develop a convincing romantic connection in seven ~30 minute episodes. The humor itself is okay but sometimes it’s too on the nose? Like trying really hard to be progressive on purpose. Idk

Nonas….. severance is actually really good. I haven’t felt this hooked on a show in so long, I just had to post it here. It’s creepy and has some eerie sci-fi-adjecent bits, but mostly it’s sad and warm and funny. It has patricia arquette playing another sociopath role (hi dee dee) and christopher walken, well. I won’t spoil but it’s adorable. The whole premise is also a nice almost truman-show-esque critical look at Big Corporate and work life balance. I love it. It’s on it’s 7ep, 8th comes out tonight

are these two women going to make out/fuck before the show ends? any predictions?
To both of them? Villanelle (blonde woman) pretty much is
the antagonist. She also continues to be in her own weird way, but yes, there are other villains and in fact a specific group that cause problems for both her and Eve which makes it hard for them to take down a powerful, established organization.
This has been a really fun watch, the build up at the end of episode 8 stressed me out so much even though I knew it would end with a cliffhanger anyway. Wtf was the waffle party? Do you think Irv has anything to do with the paintings? Helly in the quick party scene made me think gala.
Really looking forward to the finale and am happy to hear they renewed it for another season.

This show was always basically Spanish 13 Reasons Why/Spanish Euphoria but holy shit what the fuck happened to this new season? The acting is 1000 times worse than previously, and there's simply no reason for the story to continue but I guess this show will keep killing someone off each season and keep doing this tired whodunnit format. I understand Netflix will milk a show for all it's worth until it's a shell of it's former self but I really don't understand what happened this season specifically? The plot is incomprehensible and it's edited as if it's some low budget youtube show. I had really low expectations and somehow I'm still disappointed.
And another thing, I've only seen the first episode and some of the second episode, and I don't really remember what happened in season 4, but regarding Phillipe The guy is a predator and a rapist idc. I don't understand why so many people are on his side like Samu and whoever else. Are we supposed to feel bad for the guy who's being "bullied" because he was a rapist? Again I haven't seen it all so things might change and I get that he hasn't been kicked out because of his status but the students who are still friendly with him doesn't make that much sense to me. Maybe I'm missing something. I'm not gonna get into the plot further than that because it's all stupidly infuriating and I could sit here ripping into it all day.
I’m gonna watch an episode with my lunch, thank you nonnie
thank you so much for bringing this show to my attention. I am freaking obsessed.
I’m still only on the first season but I am so emotionally invested in the story and with Lenu/Lila. I’ve been searching for a good female centric drama for a while and this is just what I needed.
Side tangent but I speak Catalan and I’m really surprised by how much of the show I can understand completely without looking at the subtitles.

I really wanted to continue watching this show, but I had to stop in the middle of the first episode.
I didn't like the acting whenever Kat was arguing with her mother during her episode, and the argument between her and her younger sister made me wince. Also couldn't stand the idea of how the show was going to turn into Kat and Justin possibly falling for each other when in the beginning of the episode he was being such a creep. I'm bummed because I wanted to like it.

Kek what the fuck
By the way nonnies can you recommend a show similar to Tokyo Tarereba Girls? I didn’t really like the love plot with the blonde guy but what I’m seeking for is a show that follow a girls friend group. What I liked so much was how the girls met up everyday at an izakaya and how the friendship felt authentic and wholesome. They all had different personalities and flaws which I liked.
Anon how could you forget American Horror Story! >>201316
Unfortunately I don't know any shows like you want but I want to rant about the blonde guy love story because it felt so out of place and I almost rage quit on the last few chapters lol the ending was garbage. GARBAGE. And it makes me angry because it started so strong and fell flat… had so much potential>>201332
Stremio is a great alternative if you use a pc/android phone (no app on iOS), I've been using it for a year now and it never let me down

Watched the first episode of this out of curiosity and found it so boring and silly. I feel like it has to be aimed at 14 year olds and was thrown off by it being recommended by people my own age (late 20s). Maybe I'm a dumbass
Looks boring. What's the appeal? I've heard about how the artist for the original comic said it wasn't a BL because it's not "fetishizing gay boys like yaoi does" but it seems like the Western equivalent of these kawaii uwu BL where nothing ever happens because conflicts are bad and problematic
and the guys are pure and innocent uwu.
I watched the first 3 episodes before I quit. Totally agree with you nona. The vibe is almost elementary, which makes the 20yr old twitter stans even more cringe.
Also don't understand why gay shows have to choose the ugliest moids as main characters kek.

I loved it and I came here to post about it. I feel like this season felt like more of a continuation of the mystery from season one. I also really like that it integrates the time period into the actual plot (satanic panic is part of the conflict, but I'm not going to spoil past that.) Episode four was incredible, potentially my favorite to date.
It's not perfect, though. There's some serious tonal whiplash, and the CGI occasionally looks wonky, but it's a solid season overall.
I'm only three episodes in but so far I'm feeling like >>210725
; came into it very reluctantly after 2nd and 3rd seasons just steadily went downhill, and if only it wasn't 3am I would definitely binge this one fully. New mystery is fascinating and really brings s1 vibe back. Very pleasant surprise.
It wasn't as awful as I expected, but I am only one ep 5, so that's subject to change. The storyline with the freddie krueger monster is kinda meh and after a while, the bad CG death gets laughable. I love the sound track so far though! Hell yeah Kate Bush. Robin is my favorite character, as well as Max. I dont care for 11 again this season. She's just boring. Poor Will is always being ignored by everyone. I wouldn't be shocked if he ended up on the dark side.
Jonathan and his new friend Argyle had me in stiches.

i unapologetically love this fucking show
i actually just finished s4. this happens everytime a new season comes out, im reluctant to watch it and then i end up binging it all the way through lol. i actually like eddie a lot, agree with >>212186
about robin. even though s3 wasn't the best the robin + steve duo was really fun
overall i really liked s4, there were definitely some stupid aspects i thought mike and co. visiting suzie was cute but the part where will directly referenced the never ending story scene from s3 made me roll my eyes
. i'm looking forward to s5 and i'm glad it'll be the last one i just really hope they dont kill off steve because he's one of my favorite characters

i loved this show, it had the same feeling as Lost had. i think the writers or something are the same

I know it's old but I recently binged all of Raising Hope and it was really comfy. Reminded me a lot of my own flawed, lower class upbringing but less sanitized than Malcolm in the Middle. Also, I like how although it's called Raising Hope the kid is never the focus, they don't rely on aww moments or give her any lines. Also as someone with trichotillomania I love how accurately it's portrayed, I do the same eyebrow shit and it made me laugh my ass off. I love the ending, too, watching the first few episodes you don't expect it to turn out like that, they really built a great cast of characters that interact so well I was sad it was over

honestly i hope eddie from stranger things dies. i like him as a character he is sort of cute but i want him to be with chrissy in a way. sure they only spent a couple minutes together but for those minutes they were really sweet together. together not necessarily as lovers or friends but symbolically.
also i dont know how i feel about the whole nancy steve thing its weird, and i hate those scenes with his bare chest out. was that meant to be fanservice i was honestly disgusted if anything but that might just be me.
to those who watched the show what are your thoughts on that russian soldier guy with hopper ? also btw regarding hopper i honestly was not shocked that he was alive but i still cried so much in the season three finale, even if it was not all to my taste but i was bawling do you think he will die like alexei ? there is some speculation that he will in self sacrifice, but nothing confirmed just fans theorizing.
Honestly this is my biggest disappointment this season (except for Hopper related storyline, I think it would be far more satisfying character arc if he stayed dead at the end of s3), that Chrissy was killed off in the very first episode. She was such an interesting new character and I was immediately excited about seeing more of her, especially since her interaction with Eddie seemed like something fun to explore, feels like we were robbed honestly. Nothing more really interesting is left about Eddie so I'm with you here anon, and I think it's actually very likely
Nancy and Steve thing was weird because he's just so awkward, ESPECIALLY with the bare chest, isn't fanservice supposed to be appealing? I can't believe this was appealing to anyone. At this point I'm cool seeing no romance at all whatsoever this season.

I like Argyle a lot too but IDK why i got irrationally annoyed when they implied Eden having some sort of "infatuation at first sight" with him? They made her look so cool and pretty in the show and he seems to not have many redeeming qualities looks wise lmao
I actually think Mariana is the right one for Anne. Everything Mariana says about Ann and Anne together is fucking true, there is nothing much to their relationship beyond Ann being willing to marry Anne. Ann is simpleminded, feeble, meek. Anne got into it for money and found that she loved having a beautiful woman she could manipulate into a marriage.
Mariana however has a will of her own and challenges Anne in ways that Ann never has and probably never will. The only times Ann is capable of saying no to Anne is when someone she's even more afraid of enters the picture to order her around. She's growing as a person over time so I'd like my opinion of her to change too but honeslty she is a grating character.
The chemistry between Anne and Mariana is far superior imo and her voice is very very sexy.

any anons watching pistols? i'm on ep 3 right now and so far i like it. the editing is kind of weird in that it cuts to random archival footage with no transitions, like in a kind of sloppy way. it's not bad though, i think its worth a watch if you like the band or this period in punk

I just binge watched Under the Banner of Heaven and honestly I really liked it until the last episode. The writing seemed to take a total nosedive in quality, and they upped the corniness to an absolutely stupid level. Such a disappointment because I thought the first few episodes really knocked it out of the park. Did anyone else feel this way or was I expecting too much out of a mini series?

Started watching this teen lesbian vampire series on Netflix and it’s hot garbage but I can’t stop watching. Low budget, terrible acting, feels like a student film in some parts…but weirdly enjoyable. Probably could have stayed a mid-tier YA book.

>>215922>lesbians have to be fat and ugly or they're "lesbians" and it's for men
What does this even mean! Shut the fuck up. First of all they put a darkskin woman in the main couple and that's a big stride, seldom do you ever see that in a mainstream show meant to appeal to wider audiences. That they're skinny is just common sense, fat people look like shit. I can tell you're just a polilez freak with the way you're trying to act like finding attractive women attractive is a male trait.
I don't doubt that he has ptsd from the war and I liked seeing how the other men returned broken versions of themselves, but you're right it was so boring! For a mob show, I was over it. Where's the charm? Where's the fun? Watching Cillian alone isn't going to get me through 6 freaking eps. I think I made it to 2.
If you want an example of a historical crime show based on real people I totally rec Godfather of Harlem. It follows crime boss, Bumpy Johnson, who was once the principle lieutenant of madame Stephanie St. Claire who was a black female rackateer and numbers queen. She was a bad bitch in her own right and I would totally watch a biopic. But back to Godfather of Harlem, it follows his life and the inner machinations of Harlem, race relations, politics, and brewing unrest punctuating the crime wars. Even has Malcolm X and his waning ties to the Nation of Islam (and you probably know how that ended welp). There are a lot of little stories that show the good and bad in everything and I think the acting is pretty solid! I get if it's not your cup of tea though.

I'm midway through this show for the first time, what do you all think of them? It seems my opinion is an unpopular one when I say they're not annoying, I don't get the hate. Walt annoys me 10000000% more than any other character. Was I supposed to hate them? #I'm on season 4 episode 6 for reference.##
File: 1656371553857.jpg (50.21 KB, 1220x700, the-bear-fx-trailer.jpg)
Anybody watched this on Hulu yet? He's a cutie but I don't want to waste my time.
I'm watching it right now, my main opinion is that he's cute and has great arms.
But yeah it's well made and acted, I think it would probably resonate more if I had any experience working in a kitchen but from what people have said it's spot on.
I'm on my first watch too, mid season 3, and I also hate Walt. Before watching I saw so many people talking him up as a cool badass but he really just seems like another narcissistic egotistical scrote.
I don't really like Marie because I think she's kinda boring. But I think Skyler is fine, and Walt really is a pretty awful husband so I think she's in the right every time she does something that upsets him lol.

the expanse turned me into a scifi fan, too bad it's hard to find something exactly like that without cringy alien shit that's just "person with funny ears".
also i hate how boring the last 2 seasons were. after s4 i expected the show to take a completely different turn than what we got.

It's time… I will be tuning in later today when I wake up.
When I first watched it when I was like 16 and I thought she was annoying as fuck. Now a couple years later I understand her and defend her everytime her character is mentioned. I pity her. Walt is a fucking monster>>218282
Sadly I already got spoilered. It premiered at 4 am in my country and I have to work all day so I haven't watched it yet ugh
it's an HBO max
show, and unfortunately, that's not why. It's because HBO max got sold to discovery+, and they're pretty much cutting like 70% of the content and changing it into a lot of shitty reality tv shows/game shows. The issue with raised by wolves is that it's budget is huge, the views it apparently got weren't that great for what it was, and it's a sci fi (famously least popular genre in hollywood unfortunately). So it just wasn't worth it for the execs compared to something as shitty as our flag means death which apparently doesn't cost a lot to make, and is a comedy.
If you wanna blame anyone, blame discovery+. God I hate how we've come full circle to cable tv now but in 2022…

I've returned. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I feel like Vecna's body looks a little awkward and his voice made me cringe during some moments. I really think they could've given him lines that would've made him seem more threatening instead of repeating some things he's already said. I also couldn't help but cringe when Steve said he wanted six kids and then told Nancy later on he wanted to have them with her. Nancy is ambitious that's only going to hold her back, you leeching male.
Anyway, I really thought Nancy was going to have to choose who to save when the vines grabbed Steve and Robin. And then I thought she was going to get attacked by Vecna when she was shooting the shit out of him while he was on fire. I'm glad she's okay. It was really nice to see the demogorgons again. Max's death absolutely ruined me for a moment. I didn't think I would cry that much kek. Didn't help that Eddie died too. Also, does anyone else get irritated when Will grabs/touches his neck? kek it's such a petty thing to get annoyed over but I can't help it.
But I am very neutral about this season, lol. I will still be watching s5 because I just want to see where this goes. I wonder if Angela is alive?>>218316
I'm so sorry, anon. That really sucks.
I was super disappointed with volume 2. They should've committed to Max's death, it felt so cheap to have such a heartbreaking death scene for her and then El unleashes sudden hidden revival abilities. I don't think they'll go a morbid route of pulling the plug, its obvious they're going for a storyline of retrieving her soul from Vecna in season 5 because her soul isn't in her body at the moment. But is she going to still be blind when she's recovered? Would've be morbid if so. Also Eddie's death was so useless and was written so badly. There was nothing new added to Vecna and the Vecna/El faceoff was uneventful as fuck. The mind flayer joining forces with Vecna ruins the whole mystery of this unknown other worldly entity from the previous seasons.
The first few episodes of season 4 were strong but it crumbled from shitty writing.
Carmela is my favorite character. I don't understand how moids can watch the series and somehow think she's worse than Tony for taking his blood money. You can't say she's a gold digger because she clearly was in love with Tony when she married him (and still is) PLUS he got her knocked up and its not like she really had a choice but to marry him in their conservative sphere. I'm not even sure how she "enables" him other than doing her wifely duties. Her "nagging" is just her having valid
concerns about her and her kids' future without Tony. Also Carmela sleeps with another man while they're separated and kisses one guy once when they're together and somehow that makes her a cheating whore that's worse than Tony with his laundry list of infidelity. Even if she was a serial cheater I couldn't have any other opinion other than fucking good for her. I can't stand the unrelenting Carmela slander in every single Soprano moid dominated community.
AYRT, the "enabling" is usually explained that she knows what Tony's work entails but doesn't leave him. I wouldn't necessarily call that enabling myself, just brought it up as it seems to be the most common "critique" of her. What is she meant to do though? Wage a one woman war against the mob? "TOE-KNEE! I TAWLD YOU NAWT TO MURDAH ANYONE ELSE!!!" She's definitely in love with him which is why Whitecaps is still such a huge gut punch after so many rewatches. The hospital episodes too, after Tony got shot. Edie Falco did a really great job with the emotional scenes, portraying that even though Carmela and Tony are barely civil, she still loves him to death. "nagging" the father of your children to provide for them being a bad thing is peak male mentality. "yeah he knocked her up and married her and wanted her to be a housewife but fuck her lol she should get a job" I completely agree about the infidelity. If Carmela actually did sleep with Vic Musto I would've cheered her on, kek. Same with Furio, and I actually think Furio was a good fit for her. Another thing I hate from moids is "wahh they made Furio a softie in season four!!!" when at the party Tony and Carmela throw for him when he first comes to America you see him giving a woman advice for her baby and playing with children. They didn't expand on it, sure, but Furio had a softer side since the start. He was good at his job, but always quite stoic and thoughtful outside of it.

I hope Duffer Brothers go to hell for what they did to him
lol glad the show can admit she's hot. was really not a fan of the lesbian cruise episode tho, it was disappointing.
>>219083>It would be even more painful, storywise, to see her pass away like this, not dramatically in an epic faceoff of another universe but slowly in real life
I agree completely, anon. But also you increased my hype for s5 with> also putting a clear limit to what Eleven can and cannot do, which would make the stakes higher for the final battle in the final season. We will see.
I have been sperging about this show since I started watching it last November. Sorry for my autism but I get so excited talking about it.>>219806
Do you mean GNC as in Gender Non-Conforming? If so, based. Shiv and Tom’s marriage is really roles-reversed. Also, yeah, Greg is nowhere near the right guy for Tom, I think he kind of takes him for granted. But I saw someone say that Greg only “takes” so much from Tom because he knows how willing he is to “give,” and that it’s kind of a love language for him. Still rubs me the wrong way.>>219831
Nonna, please rewatch all Tom-Shiv scenes through a misandrist lens… Tom does not care about the open relationship because of the sex, he’s open to taking advantage of it himself. Tom is upset by it because it means Shiv doesn’t fully belong to him. He obsesses over having control over her. He’s routinely upset at their dynamic, at how she has more power over him because she’s the Roy. They are equally bad towards each other. Her only crimes are having sex habits that make Tom uncomfortable, that he doesn’t make an effort to communicate his feelings about. Meanwhile Tom is overtly concerned with using Shiv to leverage his position at Waystar. How many private conversations of them do we see where Tom ISN’T begging for another step-up/promotion/etc?
It’s interesting that you mention Shiv wanting to have a baby out of spite. Do you not remember Tom, several episodes earlier in the season, wanting to have a baby to keep him and Shiv together if he was to go to prison?
I really feel that Shiv, both in-universe and as a character on a TV show, is in an extra-vulnerable position as a woman. She’s under so much scrutiny that no other character faces. I’m so defensive about her LOL.>>219854
Oh I love this one. See also linkrel.
My sister forced me to watch the final two episodes and yeah it was very obvious Will is gay. He's all "im so different" CRIES
uehuehuehuehueh wahhhh and his ugly brother is like "i love you no matter what" and my sister is like "UWUUUUUU !!!!"
Anyway I hate Stranger Things and Will is a little faggot and Mike hit the wall and I am angry I had to watch two and a half hours of a finale that ended on a fucking cliffhanger.
Anyway yeah I think Will may end up gay but they don't want to blatantly write it on the wall probably for flexibility of the script or to claim they had an epic gay setup. But also Mike is with 11 still, right? What I got from the final two episodes is that 11 doesn't really care about Mike that much, she seems bored and fed up with him lol
I watch most shows with a healthy does of misandry but it still didn't work for me here. Tom is still a piece of shit don't get me wrong. He clearly is using her to climb the corporate ladder, but I think that's secondary to his love for her. Remember on their honeymoon when he proposes to quit the business life and just fuck off and be scuba instructors? I do believe that was genuine. The impregnation shit was unhinged and he needs to respect her wishes, although I don't see why you would get married without having those conversations beforehand. I guess Shiv did the same with the open marriage topic though. I can't agree that he is open to the open marriage, he didn't want to have a free pass at the bachelors (tbf it was because he didn't want her to fuck anyone else but that's normal in a monogamous relationship) and he didn't want to partake in the threesome at all. As for being upset about their dynamic, I can see it but can personally understand as their agreement and plan for the future was for him to take over (ludicrous idea but anyway) and that changed in a heartbeat when Shiv was "offered" the role. I was dead set on liking Shiv, especially before watching the series all I heard was scrotes hating on her and I assumed it was a normal scrote hate like what happened to Skyler and Carmela. But I will agree with you that a lot of the mistreatment she gets in the show and by the fandom is her being a woman. Roman mocking her for not wanting to put up a fascist nominee for instance, while she is the only one in the room who has any politics expertise. I somehow don't believe she or any of the Roys are good candidates for CEO, but for her its because of her lack of being able to read the room in professional situations (the whole of season 2 lol). BUT I will say that most of her outbursts and snark would be excused if she was a man.
Anyway I finished Succession a few days ago and will be rewatching immediately so maybe some of these opinions will change soon.
>>218492>I also couldn't help but cringe when Steve said he wanted six kids and then told Nancy later on he wanted to have them with her. Nancy is ambitious that's only going to hold her back, you leeching male.
Holy shit, this. It was just a giant reminder of how incompatible they are, but the show is framing it like it's cute? What happened to season one where Nancy said she didn't want to be a housewife with a bunch of kids? What happened to her caring about her career?
Don't get me wrong, I think it's sweet that Steve loves kids so much. But that doesn't mean I want Nancy to be his fucking brood mare, what the fuck. If the Duffers have them get back together, I'll be legitimately pissed, because Steve will
ruin her dreams and it will send a really shitty message.
Also Johnathan's reason for doubting their relationship came from the fact that he wanted to take care of his family in California, but they're not even living in California anymore, so it's a moot point.
Yeah okay, I respect this. As long as it’s not brainless handmaiden hate. When I rewatched Succession, already having in mind my favorite characters, I payed extra attention to Tom and Shiv and came out with a little more sympathy to the latter, but Tom is still my favorite by a landslide.
I do love him and Greg, sorry. I’m a filthy fujo. I want Tom to put him in his place or something.

Oh, nothing will ever happen between them, at least not explicitly. I hate how Greg treats Tom but it’s fine because I know Greg will eventually end up worse than when he started at the end of the series… hopefully. I honestly enjoy bait a lot, it’s enriching and I hope they do more. I really doubt it counts as bait though, because they’re not pushing it at all in advertisements or promos. A lot of their most-cited “moments” were actually just improvisations from the actors.
I know that Tom isn’t wearing a ring in a scene they were filming the other day, picrel, so maybe him and Shiv have separated or divorced.

There are two spin offs, Fear the Walking Dead and Walking Dead - World Beyond. World Beyond has an actor that is non-binary in real life, but honestly, I don't remember if that ever was discussed in the show, but it could be, how woke and shit the characters in World Beyond were written. But let's be honest, Walking Dead is so far from believable, they always stand in the middle of the road, discussing stuff and no woman has body hair, as if we all would shave while being on the run. Still, I like Fear the Walking Dead the best from all three shows, it's so far from believable that it's actually nice to watch.

Tom anon here, thank you! I don't care if it's autistic kek, it fits him much more than whatever Taylor Swift or Mitski songs the twittertards like to put on his Spotify playlists. Sounds like there's going to be a karaoke scene in season 4 too, maybe and hopefully Kendall spiralling?

Oh for sure. You see that video of the siblings outside an Irish bar? Kendall’s depression walk is iconic, he’s totally losing it even worse than he already has. I think he’s bipolar and struggles with the mania/depression cycle which is why he crashed and burned so bad this season.
I don’t think anyone is going to actually do any karaoke, it might just be a discreet rendezvous location, but if they do, it’d be a cute Roy siblings scene.
I’m so sick of the twitter fans. I spend a lot of tumblr too. I don’t know which group is more insufferable. >>222564

I kinda disagree with the take that we're back to where it started because a lot of things changed in this season; Starlight going rogue, Homelander going apeshit with no one being able to control him anymore, Butcher and Hughie getting slowly addicted to Comp V (with major consequences implied for Butcher) and Ryan choosing sides; I think it sets up next season to be pretty interesting, and different from what we've seen before.

This is old but Bramwell!!
It is about "Dr. Eleanor Bramwell, a woman challenging the domination of men in the medical establishment, who runs a free hospital for the poor in the East End of London, during the late Victorian era.
" (Wiki) It is seriously so good.

Np! I hope you enjoy!
Watched the new episode of Better Call Saul and I can't believe how disgusted I am with the two of them after fucking around and getting Howard killed. The writers did a good job of opening up Howard's character and made him out into a sort of loveable idiot and I'm sad he died. Seeing Jimmy and Kim act like anything but devastated in the newest episode (even though that is what they were instructed to do) made me feel really mad. I've never flipped on characters so hard before kek. RIP

any other nonnas watched Dopesick? I thought it was really good. Lots of very talented actors. The subject was very depressing and shocking though.
I meant looks lol
I still haven't seen the finale but it sounds like in the end, nothing of consequence happened? What are your predictions for S4 nonitas

neil gaiman will neil gailman but i'm still excited for this to come out
Ayrt, basically : i see what they're trying to do with tom's character but i just find him unbearable. greg is a bore. I find their scenes annoying to watch. I hope shiv ditches tom's ass with extreme prejudice
kendall has his moments but he's too whiny for my state. I prefer shiv and roman who're pieces of shit but in a very entertaining way.
but so much of the fan content focuses in tom/greg or making ken a woobie and it's tedious
these are very much subjective, but i feel not many ppl feel this way
Because Skylar had expectations of Walt’s behavior whereas Kim just accepted it. Skylark chides Walt for using the incorrect credit card, skylar gets involved by seeing if grey matter will take him on board, then she has the audacity to cheat on Walt after he hid a life threatening diagnoses and killed two men while making meth! How dare she expect better from her husband in the midst of her high risk pregnancy, his imminent mortality and their crippling financial situation. Now Kim, she’s a good one because she helps Jimmy without judgement, hell she even enjoys the thrill and routinely bails him out of her own free will! When skylar finds out Walt is risking her life, the life of her son and infant daughter, not to mention his own, she has a mental break! Not Kim though, she immediately jumps to action!
Not to shit on Kim’s character, I think she’s great but men struggle to see women as people with their own lives and concerns. Kims interests align with Jimmys but skylars don’t align with Walt’s. Never mind that Walt’s interests don’t align with skylars, that doesn’t play into it because her life should revolve around him.
Of course, not all men but boy do a lot of them feel the need to share their callous takes and praise each other for doing so. Wondering if anyone replied to that idiot asking what was wrong with them that they think a father endanger his infant daughters life is virtuous and worthy of praise.

AYRT, I love the ambiguity in the characters. Someone said something one time about how a lot of the Succession fun is in the unsaid which I agree with. There’s very little exposition and business jargon is thrown at the viewer from day 1. My favorite pairing is Tom and Greg because I’m a sick fujoshi. >>223124>>223344
Yes, anon… yes you are. But your reasoning is very based. We need more viewers like you I think.
Btw opinions on the sibling birth order? I know, canonically, it’s Connor -> Kendall -> Rome -> Shiv but Roman has youngest sibling vibes to me.
Yeah, basically scrotes imagine Kim to be a handmaiden. A smart one, somewhat likeable when you ignore how crazy she is, but still a handmaiden, a "ride or die" that will never call anything out. What's interesting with her character is that she was groomed to be this way by her mother, so it's not even internalized misogyny and she's not really a handmaiden, she has this internalized trauma from her upbringing thats pushing her to recognize Jimmy as someone like her mother, and she reproduces the dynamic.
I must admit it was smart on the writers part to explain it this way, because before we saw her childhood she had no legitimate reason to be as supportive to Jimmy as she was, but it's not like men don't write women like that all the time, completely self-sacrificial for no reason.
On a sidenote, this scrote who is happy when the baby gets kidnapped by Walter makes me want to go out and murder random men.
Same I’m literally Shiv (woman surrounded by self-important scrotes).>>223505
AYRT, I’m 90% sure it’s feet. >>223780
I want Tom to abuse Greg. I liked him in season one but the more Roylike he got, the meaner he started acting to Tom, so now I literally hate him. I don’t think Greg would be satisfied with being equal partners with Tom, he’d end up betraying him if he could, unless there’s actually a humanity to Greg that I just don’t see. They’re friends but he doesn’t like Tom as much as Tom likes him. The Nero-Sporus stuff is literally inexplicable to me and I’m not going to pretend that I can accurately predict the events of Succession because I can’t, so, really you never know. Greg was written as gay in the first two seasons and he spends the night with a male waiter at Tom’s wedding. I really don’t think they’ll ever have sex onscreen or anything, but maybe something vague and subtextual can be implied about their feelings for each other.
Roman and Gerri are very interesting to me. I’m really excited to see what happens to them this season. They have insane chemistry and they’re one of the writers’ favorite pairing so I’m sure they’re getting great moments.
Stewy was seen on set yesterday with Shiv… Yayyyy another “Stewy I need help fucking my dad” plotline(don't use emojis)

Tom to Greg. We already know Tom is a piece of shit like all the rest of them but I don't have a problem with openly liking ~problematic
~ characters anyway. Totally agree that Greg would betray Tom if he got a good deal out of it (didn't he basically do this to Kendall last season?) and agree that Tom is more into Greg than Greg is into him. Also kek at Stewy, the fans obsessed with shipping him with Kendall always seem jealous of all the content Tom/Greg gets and take their anger out on Tom.

I think the actor is doing a great job as him, which is why he seems like an interesting character to me. I like him. Though I do not think I will keep watching the show next season because Maeve actress left the show, and I liked their hate-love dynamic. Only Soldier boy can save this show for me, and Starlight with Kimiko. It's weird how a lot of people on social media hated Starlight this season when I in fact loved her actions and didn't like her during the previous seasons where she seemed to have a waifu-pandering personality.
he's a good villain. I enjoy his mix of overpowered psychopath and fragile little worm baby. dangerous combination.>>225152
aw maeve is really leaving? I didn't know that.
kimiko is so fun, I love her. it was a little weird when she let frenchie get shot seemingly because she was having too much fun slapping that guard to death. she could dispatch 3-4 guards easily without him getting shot so it seemed like false drama.
I agree with you that starlight was better this season.
For Homelander, I hate him, still, I find him so damn funny, with his puffy face and his love for milk, he is horrible, but that is good acting.
I hated what the Starlight actress did to her face, it's really sad, because she looked good before and it's irritating to not recognise a face in a new season of a tv show. But I liked her development in the last season. Also wish they would have kept Maeve.
My favourite character is Billy, but I just have a thing for Karl Urban, kek. I also like Frenchie and Kimiko and will keep on watching. The fact that they put Bobby Singer in it made me like the show even more. I also always like the music choices in shows where Eric Kripke is part of.
Homelander's an interesting character, one that you love to hate and love to watch. Though the season 3 finale was a letdown, it felt like the boys are back to the same song and dance with homelander. I really wish they depowered him or something.
Also I think it's interesting that nonnas like starlight this season when I've seen a lot of people (men mostly) say they dislike her this season for not putting up with their precious hughie's wannabe macho man shtick.

I haven't been able to feel anything since Lalo
I don't know if it was intentional on the part of the writers, but it's interesting how Kim is sort of the anti-Skyler: A female love interest who is endlessly accepting of the lead's crimes, and even encourages him. And it shows how bad that can be.
That said, I never was very into Kim. I found her less compelling and well-written, if sometimes more tolerable than Skyler.>>223383

I haven't watched the most recent South Park special yet, but I wanted to gripe that this feels like a weird choice for a show that used to be ahead of the curve. The "Karen" memes are already stale and the spiky Kate Gosselin can-i-speak-to-a-manager haircut is a dated reference, that really hasn't been a thing since like 2010.
>>225780>tfw realized I'm a boomer
I dunno how to feel about this. Does no one remember when the torturecat/luka videos were being posted? Everyone on 4chan was freaking out about it back in the day. It was a pretty big deal at the time. Maybe the docu series was done a little tryhard-y but the content was def a big deal when it cam out.
I'll probably be watching that one about hunter moore because tbf anyone who's been blackmailed with nudes would relate a lot. I've had friends up on his awful site and it's dated now a days but at the time, it basically ruined your life and it was full of bs/lies.

I hope so too. I want them to reveal that she despises him and is better off without him alone, or with someone else. It would be great if she would cold shoulder him entirely…
I honestly did not like Kim this season at all up until the breakup (though, even after too). I didn't like her turning into a chaotic person, but I have a feeling they turned her that way because people hated Skylar.
i mean he has always been a sleaze, the way he talked to francesca and skyler and slept with prostitutes before too.
i almost felt sorry for jimmy when francesca just hanged up on him but then i remembered that "can i walk you home" line and thought good for her. she's one of the best characters
Made me laugh a bit when he was going to bludgeon the cancer guy with an urn containing the ashes of his beloved dog
because of how surreal it looked, I think the ep's intent was to show him becoming more and more immoral and reckless until he decides to stop at the end
The karen memes are dead, stale and obviously sexist at this point>>226076

i think you just don't enjoy the format where their plot lines are continuous now instead of the one theme per episode
Pros: As a hardcore Sandman fan I enjoyed it way more than I expected to. Its very faithful to the comic in general vibe, but also they will recreate entire scenes of dialogue or exact panel compositions from the comics. I get the impression everybody working on it was a fan too. The sfx and locations were great, it feels expensive. I made my bf watch it and he was super into it, though he never usually goes for fantasy and couldn't get into the books at all.
I thought Cain, Abel, desire, matthew the raven, Johanna, Gilbert were really great castings. They did the absolute best they could with Dream and although I would have chosen someone more scary instead of weird looking, he was super committed and it worked. His voice is perfect though.
I put the general slight layer of cringe over the whole thing down to the fact that it's a Neil Gaiman adaptation and that's just what his stuff is like.
Cons: I wish they'd done the black eyes thing more often for Dream, I missed that. I thought the actor for Lucienne was annoying, she talked like she was in a primary school play. The actor for Death was pretty good but not spectacular, although I can't really think of anyone else I would have preferred.
Incels are going to complain about the gender- and race-bent characters but it's either neutral or a positive.
I just finished watching this and I was obsessed. I found the tech history really interesting anyway and the way it all changed over the years felt really natural. I wasn't expecting there to be such a focus on Donna and Cam's working relationship/friendship but I'm really really glad there was. It didn't feel pandery or forced either. All the characters were very subtly and realistically written.
I started watching Silicon Valley right after so although it was a big change in mood, the focus on tech innovation in silicom Valley made it mesh excellently.
If anyone can recommend me any tech shows about the dotcom bubble I think the time periods would overlap from 1984 all the way to present day lol. Or any from before then!
Awww that’s so cute nonny

I'm watching Buffy again. I watched the entirety of it like ten years ago as a teen on Netflix, but I also remember watching the show as a kid years earlier when it was airing. Either way I LOVE TARA SO MUCH lmao I never appreciated her initially, when I first watched the show I was obsessed with Spike but now??? Tara is such a good friend to Buffy AND she's hot AND gay.
I can't believe it's over. This whole final season has felt like a victory lap with so many familiar faces coming back but I'm glad we got more of Oakley
, when Marie
showed up I genuinely gasped, and that closing reunion scene with Kim was so beautiful
/tv/ is in fucking tatters right now because their based lawyer man did the right thing and faced the music and took the punishment the law saw fit rather than weasel his way out one more time
yeah this ending is something moids can't understand
on other hand in a way i guess it would have been morbidly hilarious if saul tried to weasel out of responsibility once again, like i get it that would have kept tv moids talking about this show to the end of the time about how it subverts the expectations, how artistic and cool and brave it was that they kept the bad guy being bad and the love didn't win in the end and blah blah blah
but i like that they went for emotional integrity instead of thinking about what would seem the best way to be subversive. i think this was actually in a way the braver way to go in a world where movies and tv is all about being edgy, shock value and SuBVerTIng tHe eXpeCtaTioNs. it is honestly refreshing to see a story to go in a more "traditional" direction, that the hero/antihero of the show actually does a good thing, love, honesty and emotional growth does win in the end, it is purifying in some way really. the ending made me sad but in a way it felt like taking a shower after long day, you feel clean, finally.
also i liked the bus scene with the prisoners. i thought it was really morbid, horrifying really that jimmy tried to let saul go but he will forever be surrounded by people who won't let that happen, like the scene made me anxious even, i liked it.

It's ten times better than Breaking Bad, nonnie
. It's a lot more about character development, inner issues and relationships. I watched both and I can agree with others that BCS is the best, even it's ending makes a lot of sense.
The character writing is amazing, and I have to note the fact how much I love Kim (despite me not liking her actions in S6, but the ending fixed that), she was written like an actual woman instead of your typical scrote-writing.

Started watching Pretty Little Liars ironically while I play video games. Now I’m 3 seasons deep and invested lol Every man in this show is just the worst. Except for Toby, he’s a qt.
How bad is the ending anons? Lemme know so I can prepare mentally.
>>231368>I cannot recommend Paper Girls enough, it's like if Stranger Things wasn't written by hacks.
How much of Stranger Things have you seen? They aren't anything alike so why are you comparing them?
The only thing that both shows have in common is kids riding bikes imo
>I just really love seeing tweenage girls have their stories told with compassion, as well as the future versions of themselves.
This is what got me to watch it but I ended up disappointed
>I strongly believe in TV piracy
Agreed, I downloaded all the comics after binging the show so I'm glad the show at least introduced me to the comics
I agree with almost everything you said, nona, and I'm also a long-time Sandman comics fan. Tom Sturridge has a great voice for Morpheus, but wew he's not really the best actor in the world, is he? Works better when he's just silently staring at the camera, but he doesn't have the gravitas necessary when he's moving around and talking outside of voiceovers. And I also wish they shelled out more effort and/or money to keep his eyes black the entire time.
I'm also having a hard time appreciating Lucienne, since Lucien was kind of smarmy and she's not really bringing that element of the character.
The Corinthian being added into a lot more of the story works better than I thought it would, and I had low expectations for the actor but he's actually doing a great job.
I also wish they had done more with John Dee's appearance. His whole story gave me nightmares when I first read the comic as a teenager, and the show's version of that story wasn't as terrifyingly hilarious. Similarly, I thought Despair should have been more gruesome.
Hopefully they get Delirium and Destruction right, they have one of my favorite relationships in the comics.

This past Friday I walked into the room and saw my mom watching this. It's a South Korean show about an autistic lawyer navigating a world that dislikes her seeing as though she graduated top of her class and passed the bar with a near perfect score no one would hire her initially because of being autistic. It's a cute show showing all the characters growth(I'm not a good explainer). The cases are interesting. You get some beautiful shots of Korea. The episodes are long at an hour and 20 minutes. I'd like to hear others views on it. It has no English dub on Netflix brand English subtitles if you like that which is why I'm surprised because usually my mom won't watch something in another language without English dub for so long.
Moon knight requires no real prior knowledge.
For Wanda vision it’d be good to see how their relationship develops over age of ultron, civil war, infinity wars and endgame.

I just watched episode 1 and 2! Not caught up on Fear but did just catch up on TWD. When did this series get so huge wtf. Anyway! First episode was good and I definitely liked the characters more as the episode went on. Second episode was a blast. I love both the main actresses so much. The episodic anthology thing is fun, I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.
Ah no I'm sorry you were disappointed! I guess I don't know what other people think is good writing? Lol I'll read the comics too now
>why is it like stranger things
I watched all of stranger things just for the sake of completeness. I thought the general theme of 80s tweenagers facing off against huge odds, supernatural/magic-like forces and human conspiracies was pretty similar.
I don't get the point of them revealing Guillermo is gay

How do we feel? The cast is ugly as fuck. The only interesting character so far is Daemon but if I understood it correctly he’s not even viserys brother according to the books?
so I became book fan when GoT was still airing, I was invested in both the world’s history and the characters who inhabited that world, that said Martin has some issues with his writing and I feel the early seasons did a good job in erasing them, but House of the Dragon seems to go the opposite direction, it indulges to much in the gore and sex and then makes shit up, also the castration scene felt oddly comical and felt like it was just for shock value>>233253

I have basically accepted the fact that we could maybe get twow but will likely never get a 7th book, also related to this thread there are at at least five other Game of Thrones TV shows in development>A Jon Snow TV show>The Sea Snake (about the voyages of Corlys Velaryon)>Ten Thousand Ships (about Princess Nymeria of the Rhoynar and her conquest of Dorne and her three husbands one of whom was a young boy)>The Hedge Knight (about the adventures of Dunk and Egg)>The Golden Empire (an animated show about Yi Ti)
and some more undisclosed animated shows, I'm honestly worried how they will handle these many adaptions
His actor kept begging for it.>>233211
So far I liked the first episode because of the outfit designs, I am curious about "the queen who never was" and Daemon. I don't care about characters appearance because not all of the GoT actors were beautiful anyway.
File: 1661355953736.png (565.52 KB, 960x549, Nymeria and Mors.png)
I really don't care for any of these adaptions except for Dunk and Egg and Nymeria's one and I pray They don't fuck it up cause Nymeria's conquest of Dorne is my favorite bit of world building and history from ASoIF, like House Martell wasn't established by Nymeria it already existed before the Rhoynar even came, they were a midsized power who worked with the Rhoynar who had superior technological advantages and more soldiers to conqueror Drone together, basically both Nymeria and Mors Martell(her first husband) were using each other and their people's to get what they wanted, ever her marriage with the teenage boy Davos Dayne(her third and last husband who would later be her consort and bodyguard) was political and got the stony dornishmen to support her side
God the wigs are SO BAD. I thought Daenarys' hair looked shitty and fried at the best of times but now they have multiple characters with brittle as fuck hair. I don't understand at all. It's really breaking my immersion lol

Didn’t expect the sopranos to actually hold up but it really did. Even knowing the ending already since it’s so infamous, it still hit.
Glad I waited til I was old enough to appreciate it, I don’t think it would have been as good to me when I was younger.
That’s because they are, I’m probably going to go back and watch the Wire too. Why should I watch crap when there’s 20+ years of the best in television available to me now?
The sopranos surprised me, had a lot more “magical realism”/ surrealism/symbolism reminiscent of Alan Balls “6 Feet Under” (another incredible HBO show) and twin peaks. Maybe I’ll give it a shot since I need to fill the post tv show void.

Random but I suddenly thought its ironic modern shows try their hardest and are obligated to be woke and muh diversity but The Wire and Oz were normal and natural about it. Also Oz holds up well too. I didn't like the pilot at first but I grew to love it the more I watched. So many well known actors that were so hot when they were younger
and its one of the only shows where the creators aren't afraid to show dicks on screen. I know some anons would get queasy because of the moid rape but if you can stomach that and dark humor, I definitely recommend it

Because of this show I've been randomly pointing at the screen for years whenever I spot one of the actors in a second role in any movie or series
Some of the death scenes were getting really ridiculous though, like that camera flash murder during a modeling session
I first watched The Sopranos when I was 14/15ish and loved it then because I grew up on films like Goodfellas and The Godfather but I have much more appreciation for it now at 31. Like >>233920
said there's a lot of symbolism in it and hints of supernatural stuff and that completely flew over my head at 14, kek. The older I've got and the more I've matured, the more my opinion of certain characters and story arcs has changed too. It spurs on a lot of re-wataches.>>234027
I'm in the opposite position and want to know if I'll enjoy The Wire and if I should persevere with Breaking Bad. I got a couple seasons in on Breaking Bad (maybe more, it's been a long time since I watched it) but the pacing annoyed me. There was some payoff but overall it seemed quite slow to me and Walter and Jesse felt kinda two dimensional. I'd definitely recommend trying The Sopranos though, the pilot is a bit of an anomaly and season one has it's dull moments but give it time and it pays off. For me season two is probably my favourite, the plotlines from it were great. It's a damn good show in general though, the comedic tone might drop (think that was done on purpose though) but it explores a lot of concepts and is so much more than just a show about the mafia. Just don't watch the movie, it fucking sucks.

My mom just got me interested in Downton Abbey. I didn't want to ask her this but did I read it right that the Turkish guy Pamuk performed anal on Mary so that she would keep her virginity then had a stroke or heart attack and possibly died inside her ass? Most likely Pamuk gave her STDs that he got from fucking those Turkish dancing boys https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6%C3%A7ek

I’ve been watching The Crown recently, and I’ve liked it so much more than I originally expected. I’ve been so charmed by Claire Foy and Matt Smith as Elizabeth and Philip, I already know they switch the cast in season 3 but I’m gutted to be finishing the last episodes of season 2.

What do we think? Idk how you fuck up elves so bad
File: 1662861986255.jpg (17.42 KB, 411x421, EEeFM6YUYAAQYj7.jpg)
i hate it with a passion. why are the elves old? why are they ugly? WHY DO THEY HAVE SHORT HAIR?
i see, i cant believe that show went on for 15 years, thats alot of seasons.
You said there are probably some good seasons afterwards did you watch any after season 5?
samefagging just to add.
I also heard the ending of the show is really disappointing and the main characters die?
I watched it up to season 12 and then my attention waned and I only caught episodes here and there.
Season 6, 7 and 8 are good fun, some interesting characters and character development. Introduction of new big bads kind of thing but then it just got kind of annoying by season 9. Other nonnies can probably chime in with more detailed and interesting takes.
i say watch seasons 1-5 and if you like those seasons then watch 6-11 and stop
after season 11 the show gets unbearable and exhausting to actually keep up with. ive seen all 15 seasons and i feel like most fans can agree that up to 11 it becomes unwatchable.>>238723
yeah. i dont hate the finale as much as others do because of one scene that actually kept me invested but i ended up only being disappointed. sorry for sperging out a bit.

Lately I have been watching a UK TV show called Glow up which is a show about the best makeup artist. I normally like watching the previous season but this fourth season is a bit of a mess, it feels very "woke" and very on the nose with their diversity.
In the first episode the two contestants in the face-off had to create a reverse eyeliner look on identical models. One of the contestants ended up writting "Queer power 4eva" on their model's face and didn't even bother with an eyeliner look. Why bother applying if you can't even take a critique about your previous makeup look.
Has anyone else watched this show?

I watched every season that is on Netflix, god that guy was so cringe. Wish they've called him out on being disrespectful to the model. Also such bravery to say "queer 4ever" in a competition where everyone is lefty af.
S4 was the weakest imho, and there was way too many elaborate characterizations and if I remember correctly, not a single "regular" makeup main challenge. Most of the works looked pretty messy in the end, and it really feels like top 3 of this season would be eliminated in the beginning of any previous one. Can't believe dude did this one episode before the finale and they still let him pass lmao

truly a lc approved show
going to check both these out now, thank you anon
Louis and Lestat actors seem to have a really nice chemistry so I'm definitely gonna watch for that>>241919
Haven't seen that one yet but a friend of mine whose opinions on movies and tv shows I really trust saw and really enjoyed it, from the purely storytelling perspective. Having read the statements from victim
's families I feel like I can't bring myself to watching it myself though; I'm interested in true crime so it would be hypocrisy for me to say that it's unethical to tell these stories at all, but the moment someone who actually lived it speaks against a production, it crosses the line for me, ethically; same with anything about still living serial killers who killed for notoriety - it will only make them feel more right about having committed these crimes, and therefore is disrespectful for the victims
. That for me would include documentaries too sometimes, like Don't Fuck With Cats, since all that dude wanted was clout, so here he has it.
Honestly I can't think of a good movie that would take the real life serial killer story and just straight up retell it as it was; the only good ones would be these that just take a bit of truth but fit it into entirely fictional stories.
I watched it, it's shot well and I think it did a good job in terms of narrative story telling while giving attention to the victims
. Not to spoil but it specifically had an entire episode for one specific victim
that no one really cared about at the time of his death. tbf, I'm glad they did that considering how at the time, literally no one cared, not nearly as much as the other victims
, so tbf it felt respectful.
I think that films/shows that fetishize serial killers are disgusting and there are lots that glamorize it in a sense but the dahmer show isn't that.
tbh I think that it's important to make shows about them not just as a warning for people but also to understand the impact the deaths have on people. There's a lot of really good ones out there, especially on netflix, audrey and daisie (not a killer one) for example, or dear zachary (very impactful). Most of the big 'hollywood' movies like the recent one with ted bundy are just distasteful for me though.
I think the reason docs like Dear Zachary work so well is because the family and friends of the victim
(s) are heavily involved. When it comes to Hollywood productions about true crime it gets really murky with involvement from those who were directly impacted by the crimes being referenced. This is also why Don’t F with Cats doesn’t work for me and came off as extremely distasteful. The victim
and his family are barely featured in any way. If the victim
’s family didn’t want to be included then that’s a good indicator they shouldn’t move forward with a production.
yeah 100%. Don't fuck with cats was pretty sensational and more focused on the people trying to figure it out rather than the victims
themselves, and that's in part because the only reason he was really caught was due to them. I understand it's merits, but it does come off as distasteful.
BUT there are a ton of different shows/movies where the victim
's families are at least compensated or involved in one way or another. Just thank your lucky stars there's no hollywoodesq movie about the toolbox killers (not toybox, but that guy is just as bad), because I bet you it'd be disgusting traumaporn for scrotes.
For me more problematic
about Dont F With Cats is that Magnotta's dream was to be known, he tried being a model, tried applying to reality tv shows, no one cared for him and he escalated to that violent murder which finally gave him attention. Still, as gruesome as it was, up until certain point you wouldn't find many true crime podcasters/channels cover the case, probably because Magnotta is still alive and would love nothing more than to hear that people are talking about him. I bet now he's waking every day elated and accomplished knowing there's a highly rated, multiple episodes long documentary all about him; that was topping netflix charts for some time. It's basically rewarding him for killing Jun Lin.

Anyone watch the korean version of little women on netflix? I’m only three episodes in and visually, the show looks great but so far that’s the only thing it’s got going on. The plot is all over the place and gets way too messy with each episode I’m not sure if I should keep watching it
File: 1664725501002.jpeg (583.61 KB, 828x1178, E31D000A-CA29-4451-A8C4-D2941B…)
just started watching this and episode 1 was fucking amazing. it really managed to nail the vibe of the book and the story in a way that isn’t cheesy. i hope the rest of the series continues on like this. and it’s so gay which is what the movie was missing.
i was a bit nervous when i heard that they dropped louis’ original backstory to replace it with him being a pimp because in my mind that’s not that much better than being a slave owner, so i was wondering how they would portray it but i did appreciate at the end of the episode that louis confessed to the guilt and shame he feels for being a pimp and that his excuses to try and alleviate the guilt aren’t enough to erase the reality that he’s contributing to the suffering of women. it was unexpected but i appreciated it
I just finished the first two episodes last night. I have to say I really hate the actor for Lestat, he is so ugly and his voice sounds like Buffalo Bill's. Listen to him speak again and tell me he doesn't sound identical. I had to turn on subtitles because I actually found him difficult to understand at some points, he mumbles a lot. Also I found the gay scenes
really corny and over the top. I just watched the movie with some of you playas and the contrast is really strong. There was this subtle tension in the movie that I'm just not getting in this version. It's as subtle as an explosion. I think the scene where Louis calls himself queer to mean gay
was cringe and hamfisted. However I really like how since it's a show we have more time to explore the transition from human to vampire though and they did a great job with set and costume design so I will keep watching

wanted to like this show because a lot of men are angry about it, but it is just…not good.
I'm not familiar with the lead actress but she is, to be blunt, fucking awful in this. Maybe she's been better in other things. the scripts feels like it was literally feels like it was written by 5 misogynistic liberal guys who spend half their life defending feminist porn and one woman who wouldn't dare speak up to them. It's just bad. Really bad.
Agree on the bit where he used "queer" to mean "gay." That felt really anachronistic to me. Queer just meant "weird" back then.
I also didn't like the bit where a punch went through a guy's head. That was so corny, it felt like something straight out of a Sam Raimi movie. Like the way the brains hit the camera was so goofy and gratuitous. It wasn't scary at all, it just made me burst out laughing.
However I really like Sam Reid's performance, which kind of surprised me because I was so meh about him when I first heard that was who they cast. I liked that they gave him a French accent, and they capture they way Lestat alternates between flamboyant and unhinged really well. Also, while I'm not into him out of costume, I think Sam Reid is more attractive than Tom Cruise was in '94.
On the whole though, I love the show. I hope they eventually release it on Blu-ray, because I don't want AMC+ but I want to support the show.

i was kind of liking reboot until this scene; the person who says it about one of the main characters is a smug, ugly, ginger gay man
haha it's a Hulu show called reboot>An early 2000s family sitcom is rebooted, and the dysfunctional cast and crew must deal with their unresolved issues in today's fast-changing world

Anyone watching Rings of Power? I've heard so much negative feedback on it that I expected to hate it, but I'm enjoying it so far, possibly more than House of the Dragon. Good sense of mystery and suspense and the acting isn't bad (apart from the extras). My main issue is that some of the actors just look like zoomers and don't have that ancient medieval look to them, which is a bit of a nitpick but it breaks the immersion. Galadriel is grating too.

I'm PRAYING Annie and Jeff don't get together in the movie. I know deep down there's a chance, but after the way it ended, it's just gonna undo part of Annie's development. That, and Jeff it's a creep and doesn't deserve her.
same! I do like it however it feels a little on the nose with the evil vs good. Like almost too
fantasy if you know what I mean, in acting. However I find it a bit better than house of the dragon right now, and I find that surprising considering the level of hate the show got, I expected to totally hate it considering the lore is from nothing essentially. But if you take it as is, it's pretty good!
season 3 never ever.
I'm still mad, such a stylish and unique looking show, the music is sooo good.

Finally watched Breaking Bad and I have that thought about it, idk if it's weird but it stood out to me: even though it's about such a violent subject, there's no sexual violence and no excessive violence scenes for the shock value only. I feel like modern showrunners would definitely use the subject of drug and cartels to just direct and show some disgusting things that would add nothing to the plot, we see it so much in tv shows now just to "establish the grittiness and realism"; for example the unnecessary nudity and rape in Game of Thrones. And in Breaking Bad there's nothing like this, yet no one has any doubts that what we're watching is a dark story mean for adult audience. I've spent entire show stressing out about female characters, Skyler, Marie, family of Mike, that there's no way showrunners will shy away from the trope of hurting a significant other to strenghten a resolve of some male character, and yet they didn't do that. Same with any cartel scenes, that with so many ties prostitution has to drugs there will be something awful shown, but the furthest it went was showing that Don Eladio invited hostesses to his party, and after things transpired they were allowed to just go away free, despite being witnesses.
IDK maybe it's mildly autistic but I'm so glad to watch a tv series that shows one doesn't have to resort to violence agains women to have a dark and realistic story.
I totally agree nonnie
, and even when shit does occur (like Walt trying to have sex with skyler when she has on that face mask or when he comes on to the principal) he just comes across as an animalistic moid and it’s not shown in some voyeuristic titillating way.
Despite flaws of older shows in how they depicted women at least they weren’t depicting them with the sole purpose of raping them or exposing the actresses naked bodies to male audiences. Getting very sick of modern shows treating women being violated as a source of entertainment. Much funner watch a bunch of scrotes killing each other and leaving women out of it.
thats why i love it so much. i can watch most things but shows that focus on female sexualization and assault just piss me off. that includes shows about realistic female experience like handmaidens tale or 13 reasons, they literally make me want to die
. i only have a handful of favorite shows like bcs, wentworth (ruined by trannies), twd, dexter, and svu (before the writing turned into sensational libbro wank fodder). what else do anons watch?

I just want to gripe that I absolutely loved What We Do In The Shadows, both the original movie and the tv show, but the TV show has gone so downhill since season 2 it's disappointing. It's just not as funny as it used to be and I can't put my finger on why
I enjoyed parts of the last season, especially when Colin was the nightclub entertainment before he hit puberty. But it did feel kind of pointless in the end. I love Nadja to death, so almost everything she was involved in was great.
But I agree in general. It's lost some of its magic. I miss the LARPing nerds from the first season (and yeah, even Beanie Feldstein), I miss seeing other supernatural beings and creatures (which is why the nightmarket was one of the better episodes this season), and I miss learning more about their mundane lives and histories. Nandor's wives story arc wasn't as exciting as I thought it might be, especially since they got rid of all of them so quickly.
And I agree with >>248734
that sassy homo Guillermo is not much fun.
, i -just- started watching it
I think it's still very funny nonna! So you may enjoy it all the way through like I do. >>248711
Overall I think both Nandor and Guillermo character progression makes them less funny to me too, but then Nadja keeps being amazing and Laszlo just keeps getting funnier, his and Colins plotline in the last season carried the show. The "manly retreat" with Sean episode was hilarious.

Watching this reality show that's supposed to be like "Crazy Rich Asians IRL" with weird manufactured drama between these super wealthy, bratty Asian people in Los Angeles, who spend their money on ridiculous frivolous crap. It's so unrelatable and incredibly out-of-touch but I keep watching it for some reason :(

Was anyone else massively disapointed by Del Toro's Cabinet of Cuirosities? I felt like it was a collection of cliched and overdone tropes, with no effort to do anything new or different. I'm really surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reception but maybe I've watched so many horror films that I've become jaded and desensitized kek

Anyone else watching Interview with the vampire? It's soooooo good, even though it takes big liberties, where it matters you can tell there's a lot of admiration and care for the original story. I didn't expect to love it as much, I was actually one of these people really skeptical about everything after initial info was released; said liberties, the casting… it all falls into place and the casting honestly is perfect; chemistry between Louis and Lestat is incredible and makes me feel like I'm back in my teenage years, heart fluttering as I read the books. I'm just so excited it came out so good anons, so glad second season is already confirmed!
I've watched the first two episodes, fell behind but I'll catch up. I like it so far. The elaborate meal where Lois eats a live fox at the dining table
was weird. Lestat's actor seems really into his role which is nice to see; sometimes he comes off as immature which I'm not sure really goes but I didn't read the books.
Ann Rice superfan I talked to was pissed (but still watching the show, because vampires) when they saw the reporter is old now because he didn't immediately drive 30 hours while listening back over his recordings with Lois to figure out where Lestat was buried and beg him to be turned into a vampire, which is what happened in the book?
If I'm remembering that right.

Finished The Devil's Hour (it's out on Prime) like a week ago and haven't seen much discussion online about it. Don't know why, it's such a refreshing show and I love guessing just wtf is going on without it force feeding me exposition. Also the fact that it's not an murican series is a big plus in my book, because I love British series and shows. Hope Prime doesn't axe it.
Yeah the reporter's story is one of these cases where liberties were taken; i totally get it that if someone is a vampire chronicles purist (not a bad thing!) it can be a bit much; but from what I've seen there are plenty of people like me who are also big fans but enjoy the changes, and since I don't see a lot of discussions about this show at all I just hope to maybe convince someone to give the series a shot despite some reservations anyone who read the books could have. It's comparable to The Walking Dead (also amc actually) where it strayed away from the original from the very beginning but ended up (until certain point) being an adaptation both fans of the comics and newcomers loved>sometimes he comes off as immature which I'm not sure really goes but I didn't read the books.
That's pretty much as he should be, especially from Louis' perspective haha

I know I'm late to the party but I just watched True Detective Season 1 for the first time and really enjoyed it, I like that it was pretty short and sweet with a fairly straightforward plot, while still having a lot of pretty cinematography, interesting symbolism, and good performances to keep me engaged. The beginning gave me major Deadly Premonition vibes, so I was invested right away. I was hesitant about the two main characters at first but they have good arcs and a realistically fragile relationship (also I never thought McConaughey was attractive but oh boy do I get it now…tfw no troubled, cryptic, autistic cop bf, kek). Are the following seasons worth watching? Also, does anyone have any reccomendations for short (like, 10-ish episodes) dramas, especially thrillers or crime dramas? I've seen and liked Big Little Lies, Sharp Objects, and the first three seasons of Fargo, if that helps eliminate suggestions.

I don't know how to feel about the show yet, only watched one episode. It's zoomer-ish and I fucking hope there won't be any relationship crap.
I didn't hate it even though some parts were really annoying. The social justice talking points wednesday kept bringing up were so out of place, and I'm not someone who usually minds that stuff.
What I don't get is that like, this is an original story? It didn't need to be the Addams family?
Morticia, Gomez and Pugsley are in like 2 episodes, and they're now magical creatures or something. Wednesday has visions of the future.
Like if you want to do a fantastical coming of age boarding school story, just do that. It doesn't need to be attached to the Addams family.
was expecting mediocre crap and was still disappointed. The acting was godawful with everyone but wednesday's actress, morticia, gomez, and the school's principle. EVERY SINGLE OTHER PERSON was so god awful it'd make it hard to watch. It doesn't even make sense, she constantly makes choices that are very not like her character (why would she care about saving anyone for example…). And her hating her parents is so against her character. There's a lot more but tldr she makes a lot of choices that wednesday normally wouldn't.
And that dance scene… What were they thinking.
Lisa Marie and Helena Bonham Carter are both insanely gorgeous

Thoughts on this show? I really liked it up until the end of the governor arc, Negan showing up was fun but then it gets bad again.
Whattttt I loved Carl, he was one of my favorites KEK. I haven't seen the finale but from what I've heard they never actually address the origin of the virus and other really important information because they want to milk that for spinoffs. The concept was really cool but they went full retard in the later seasons, it's literally just>Wow we are in a place, this place is so nice>Yes we can stay here forever and ever>Walkers/People/Guvnah invasion>Oh nooooo we have to leave
and now we get to have the WalkingDeadverse which no one fucking asked for talking about this show genuinely pisses me off because of all the wasted potential, Shane and Lori were lucky they died

The love triangle was so bad and annoying, and the mention of social media made me want to stop the show. Also, wtf was up with that scene where it showed the angle of her friend near that guy's crotch after she spills her drink on him? So weird. The actor for Gomez didn't have enough charisma for me and his voice was so grating to me that hearing him attempt to talk romantically made me cringe so hard.. and the actress for Morticia looked more like a cosplayer to me than Morticia. I thought the dance was cute though kek.
Anyway, I really wish they showed more of them in other classes.

I've been watching diary of a call girl which is pretty entertaining. very dramatic and billie piper looks great in in it
The last episode disappointed me desu the cutest dude in the show is a gay for pay prostitute
idk why I didn't see it coming.

I loved the first season but the current season is so much better. I'm simultaneously stressed out but also wish the episodes were 3 hours long.
I liked the captain, he's so dashing and sad lol
But the plot twist feels uninspired and kind of cheap, maybe it will work out in the long run, but for now… it's like straight out of some fanfiction. The most attractive part of the show, for me at least, was the old-timey aesthetic with the vibe of uneasiness of something unknowable and eldritch out there at sea, and I really don't want them to change it!

I liked Frasier I watched the whole thing but it makes it even funnier to me to know Kelsey Grammar heavily disliked the dog that played Eddie and was jelly of the dog's fame. He tries to clarify in interviews that he isn't but he clearly is, he's like "w-well I take acting seriously and the dog isn't REALLY an actor!!" Like shove it up your ass dude Eddie made the show funnier than just your fat ass courting some random woman of the week

Anyone watched this show, whats your opinion on it (no spoilers please since im still at the first couple of episodes).
I watched it, it's okay, kinda forgettable tbh. But it's a fun watch and has some good (no spoilers) moments if you're like doing something else while watching it, but outside of that it's kinda meh.
Also, I swear mindy kaling's has been going really really down hill last few years.
THIS! im glad im not the only i just started watching and that paxton guy looks like he is 30……
I just checked the actors age and he is atleast 11 years older than her….why did they get someone in their 30's to play a high schooler….
My god, my apologies I am so late replying. I'll just say that I think this series will be at least 3 seasons long and the first season ending left much to be answered..>>259975
LOL I liked the captain too he truly is dashing. And yea I agree, I posted my op before I saw the ending. I'm hoping the next season(s)? will be good and tie things together since that's what they did with Dark but right now this show seems way more shallow than I thought it would be. I'm praying they don't disappoint because I do love the idea and the writers!! and I really love how there are so many different languages
I've finished the series today, it honestly seemed pretty charming and had a good hook in the beginning. I think it works better if you do forget it's about the Addams family and just treat it like another Umbrella/Magic school with OCs, because they're so OOC. The thing is that the twist and mystery is very weak, it becomes very clear right after they introduce the mystery, and yet you have to watch her do and deal with the usual red herring crap for half the series. Any young adult novel trope you can recognize plays out the exact same way you'd assume from beginning to end. I guess it is supposed to be aimed at like a 10-13 audience, but I was still disappointed.>>258258
I didn't get why she was so rebellious against her parents either, she was always respectful towards her parents, not a permanent snarker. I guess it's supposed to be teen angst, but it's not only explored beyond the "I can't be perfect and don't wanna be a housewife like you mom"

Werewolf roommate Enid was honestly the best part of the show, she was actually fun-creepy with her rainbow claw nails and she had charisma on screen. Somehow Wednesday wound up looking really plain next to her instead of them both being two extremes. They didn't go hard enough with Wednesday's look and the actress portrayed her as a "sad misguided loner" instead of the no-fucks eccentric she's supposed to be which just took all the life out of the character.

There are all kinds of classic horror and creepypasta monsters in the series. You wouldn't even really know it if it wasn't outright stated, as everyone's in their human form 99% of the time to save on special effects costs, which might actually be lamer than the story itself. The Addams family are a family of witches now too, they have psychic visions.>Why did they even have to involve the Addam's family instead of making a new IP?
Picrel. Easier to market, and they're spending a LOT of money on marketing, that's why it's all over the place suddenly

I agree they're the best parts. Kelsey is definitely an asshole, with a drinking/drugs issue too which makes him hard to work with and be married to, but in fairness he has had a really fucked up life. it's quite unbelievable.

I'm having too much fun watching Half Bad: The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself. Just found out it was cancelled? Damn. Guess I'll enjoy what's left of the season (no spoilers please).

How did nonas feel about the white lotus finale sad that Tania was the one who died ļ also liked that that Albie dude got played, I felt kinda sad for Daphne's kids and how uninterested Cameron seemed with them. They're obviously not really his kids and i didn't really care for Valentina and that one prostitute getting together. It felt weird and I skipped their sex scene along with all the other sex scenes I did like the dark hair prostitute. I thought she was cute with her accent. good for Tania on killing those faggots

It went for four seasons, got cancelled and then rescued by another network.
I think he's pretty charming, but they did genderswap Higgens.
Watched the show for jennifer and it was pretty sad watching tanya die she was hilarious but hopefully greg won't be getting the money
I couldn't stand the italian whores but albie and his whole nice guy schtick was more annoying I'm glad he got scammed lmao
watched it and it's alright, not perfect but genuinely entertaining, the biggest issues I had were
1)Jenna Ortega's wooden acting which kept pulling me out
2)Some of the cast who gave Riverdale-tier performance
3)The constant use of the words "normies" and "outcasts" like it seems taken straight out of a terrible YA novel

I espacially hate when they try to make gay allegories but with a straight character. If Hollywood wants to make movies about outcasts, cast actual weirdos, not conventionally cute straight girls

Man. I was kinda looking forward to this show, then had low expectations once I saw the trailer and like another nona said I was still disappointed. The whole thing felt like the "SHE'S LITERALLY ME!" meme and I think maybe I'm just not the right demographic for it

so just like Riverdale and Sabrina, also written and directed by a 50+ year old gay man
makes a lot more sense now to be honest>>264017
I think maybe it's that teens have a lower bar for quality and will watch whatever has strong marketing so they can talk about it at school or whatever

White Lotus really doesn't deserve the praise it's getting, especially the second season. In both you can tell it was written by a scrote, at least the first one had a few strong themes carrying it nonetheless; second one just falls flat completely. Tanya is so obviously written for the "funny" gays to quote online, it was the smallest surprise ever when I found out that the showrunner is a white faggot himself. Not even the comedy is good; it's hard to mix drama and comedy well and it just doesn't land well here, it's too uneven, like he tries to have comedy but is too afraid to actually commit to making it properly dark and absurd in every case except Tanya's, where the actress is just good enough to carry the show on her shoulders all by herself. But then with her being so absurd and everyone else having their characters and storylines written in a realistic way, the mood of the show is all over the place. The only solid part is the music, which is to be expected with this composer. Given the show's popularity I wonder what is it going to be like in the 3rd season without Tanya bringing in the absurdness. The concept actually has a solid potential so I genuinely wish there was someone better in charge of it
I didn’t like the first one by the end because it didn’t seem like the writers understood the story they were telling… if that makes sense. Like I’m pretty sure you were supposed to root for the wrong people or maybe no one, and mostly ignore everyone who got fucked or just not care. And the stereotypes made me roll my eyes but I guess that was supposed to be funny? I expected a subversion there somewhere but it never happened, they just stayed stereotypes. Without being specific and spoiling that was my general impression.
Didn’t watch the second season.

Voyager has the exact same vibe as TNG and anyone who hates Voyager but loves TNG is misogynist plain and simple. But why do people hate Neelix? Also Janeway is gorgeous (reposting from /ot/)
File: 1675201856941.gif (27.31 KB, 220x185, currious-startrek.gif)
The only struggle with Voyager is inconsistent characterization because of all the different writers wanting to go in different directions, and TNG had that problem sometimes too. There's probably some misogyny involved for the people who really hate Voyager if they liked TNG.
The bigger slapfest I see is TNG vs Deep Space Nine, because DS9 is basically a completely different genre of show that appeals to different people.

any anons watching makanai on netflix? I loved the manga and the anime shorts and i'm really loving the live action version. it's very calming and fills the lack of new seasons of midnight diner void in my heart. the acting is also surpsingly good for a japanese drama? still a bit dramatic at times, but overall not as cringe as a lot of other japanese tv shows.

I hate neelix he's fucking annoying as shit. It has some dumb episodes but so does tng. I liked voyager for Janeway and 7 of 9 but I did hate what they did to b'elannas character.
All the goofy holodeck episodes are my fav but I think a lot of people hate those ?

I started watching Harvey Beaks. Excellent show. It's hitting that comedy nostalgia I missed from Chowder and it's able to be it's own thing. Super comfy, looks really pretty. It took me a bit to actually start watching Harvey Beaks because I thought it was a show meant for way younger children and it gave me that Steven Universe art style feel, but I was so wrong.>>273740>Cocomelon
these poor children getting overstimulated because their parents don't know how to interact with their own kin
I'm watching and the amount of ballooned up people on steroids is insane. Obviously both sides look insane but I especially hate the sound of roided out women with the croaky troon voices from steroids.>>263949
I thought everyone in the show looked bad for one reason or another, mostly to do with styling. But he's so horrifically ugly it feels like a misogynistic crime to pair him up with catherine zeta jones who looks like a supermodel next to him. I wanted to gag at their zero chemistry scenes where they were supposed to kiss and be lovey dovey. He looked like a legit monster. They can miss me with the "bUt wE WanTeD HiM To Be uGLy LiKe gOmEz fRoM ThE CoMiCs". Sure, give me a skeletal, egg headed, giant forehead Morticia with thin hair and thin weird eyebrows. But no, gotta keep the women pretty. Wednesday is honestly such a shitty show for so many different reasons. I hate that the garbage didn't flop.
I started watching Clone High. Why is Abe's "surprised scream" the fucking N word? Lmao it's a shame this series was so short >>273797

You season 4 started with another eat the rich snarky commentary, it was basically the whole plot. we've seen the same exact remarks endlessly this year (the white lotus, the menu, infinity pool, glass onions etc) I understand You has always been satirical with their writing but I just wanted to watch silly highly entertaining show about a murderous stalker
no more surface level "capitalism bad" takes pls @ 30 year old twitter millennials writers' room
I’ve really only enjoyed the first season as cliche and problematic
as it was, but of course netflix had to turn it into some bullshit like they did with black mirror too. The character of Love from what I recall was cringe as fuck so I expect the new season to be crap considering I remember almost nothing at all besides the embarrassing characterization and attempts at self aware “say what the audience is thinking” commentary.
I came back after I finished the show and same. exact. thoughts. anon I was really rooting for it to work despite the shitty premise because I loved the three first seasons but season four characters are so unlikable and bland. the lack of chemistry between Joe and Kate is laughable she's clearly a knockoff more bitter version of fleabag ugh I really miss love, her and Joe worked so well together onscreen they really should've ended it at three honestly
Theres an interesting fan theory circling on twitter but I don't want to spoil it
No. They completely destroyed the emotional core of the story which made the last of us so good. As typical with Hollywood whoever is writing this is afraid of feeling honest emotions so every single true bond that the characters have in the game have been re-written as to destroy them.
Also seems they felt like what was missing from the game was a graphic scene of female exploitation. Now we can see a female character which originally had a dignified death be humiliated and assaulted right before her death! How nice!
>>274791>another eat the rich snarky commentary
I don't get this, the writers, producers and actors of these shows are quite wealthy themselves and they should know that even rich assholes don't act like cartoon characters, like one literally goes "the rich are the real victims
of society because we have built this nation" its not as bad as white lotus season but still cringe inducing

, there's a Western Animation thread already, that's where the cartoon fans hang out, they know their shit
UPDATE: SHE AND HER TEAM LOST
NOOOO, now that she lost i lost interest watching the show, now im only gonna watch for that one couple who is roided and when they also get eliminated im gonna stop watching. Like i dont even care to watch the last episodes of who is going to be the winner because they are boring fuggos.

>>273796>I'm watching and the amount of ballooned up people on steroids is insane
It’s kinda crazy how the general public is so oblivious to how common steroid use really is. If you look at the top 30 fastest 100m sprint times, only Usain Bolt has tested negative, so does that really mean only Usain Bolt is natural and everyone is cheating? No, everyone is doping at the highest level of almost every physical sport. It’s just that people aren’t aware of it. IMO, actors and social media influencers are more egregious about the PED issue than athletes as they’re on tour or on press lying that they’re natural and just eat “Chicken, rice and broccoli”. I know they contractually obligated to say so but still.>>275785>now im only gonna watch for that one couple
picrel is the guy when he was younger, the steroids really transformed his face entirely. He looked like a normal person during his youth, now he looks like a monster.

Has anyone watched Severance? I saw the first 30 seconds of the first episode in a YouTube video and went to watch it. Ended up binging the entire thing. It’s not incredibly fast paced, but it really keeps you engaged. It’s sci-fi/mystery, but I recommend going into it blind if you’re even the least bit interested. The first episode is on Apple for free but I’m sure there are torrents for the remaining episodes. My only real gripe so far is that the dark scenes are just too dark. There’s only short points of high contrast, but they aren’t lingered on enough and look accidental. It feels like watching a tv that’s facing direct sunlight. I want to sperg so bad, but my only friend without a pea sized attention span towards TV doesn’t know how to download shit.

I’M LATE. Okay, this is a literal toddler show, but I love it and highly recommend it for max comfy feels. Sarah and Duck. Watch it at bedtime and thank me later.
i watched the first 3 episodes, the pitch is interesting and the set is amazing, the endless corridors are so cool and the office has a beautiful vintage vibe, that's what kept me going but i stopped. Adam Scott's acting sucks youcan't tell the difference in his character outside and inside the office
the whole social discourse felt so forced, like we couldn't understand the point on our own. Anything outside their workplace was so practicable and telephoned it ruined the whole show for me.
I’m the anon who first brought up Severance and I posted my reply because I had just finished the last episode of the season. I have not been this hyped at a finale episode in a long time. The moment the “Ms. Cobel” slipped out I started losing it. Also I’m so glad the baby was ok and also that Irv didn’t wake up while driving and crash or something.
They really pumped up the dread with those things. I also think the insight into the outies lives the final two episodes
gives some interesting food for thought regarding the innie personalities
. I’m hoping the September season two release rumors are true!>>276403
I’ll level with you: Adam Scott looks ragged as shit and I don’t think it’s on purpose. I wasn’t sure if I was being hard on his “outie” acting because of it, but I still ended up enjoying the show anyway. I’ll save my follow up 2X comments for another thread kek.
I liked it a lot. I didn't go in totally blind (read a brief synopsis, don't remember how much is gave away) and I don't think it hurt my enjoyment but this was a while ago. it was really good but the cliffhanger was unnecessary especially the way they stretched the last episode out! I look forward to the next season.>>276403>can't tell the difference in his character outside and inside the office
I thought the point was their personalities are basically the same inside and out?
I actually love this show, but there’s a scene in one of the first episodes where Adam Scott is “crying” in his car and it’s one of the worst-acted crying attempts I’ve ever seen. It made me laugh out loud. >>276433
This season sucks ass. Justice for Love. They should’ve made her kill him and finished the show from her perspective or just end it. I truly feel like the writers of this show hate women because why are every single one of them written to be vapid and annoying?
I binged it recently too and I really enjoyed the mystery, I've been reading theories and watching youtube vids about it since, it's actually refreshing to be so into a show after all this time.
Ngl though adam scott's face did keep me from watching it earlier on lol, but I read somewhere that they want to focus on other characters' lives in the next season and I hope that's true.

I haven't watched Breaking Bad since it aired (I was in high school at the time), I remembered it being silly and dramatic but very entertaining and engaging. I was hesitant to start Better Call Saul but I just finished Season 4 and holy shit it's great. I honestly think it's better than Breaking Bad – the character motivations are more nuanced and the women are so much more well-written. Oftentimes a scene or episode will end and I'm confused in a good way, left wondering what a particular character was thinking based on their reactions. They feel like real people sometimes in that they aren't always easy to read. A great example is Hamlin – my opinion on him changed so many times because I couldn't quite pin down what he wanted from Jimmy or his firm. Plus there's plenty of Mike Ehrmantraut, who was always my favorite.

Aired in Oct 2021 but I’m like 6 episodes into Maid today and it’s such a great show. It’s kinda hard to watch sometimes
Damn, main character just bought a drivable car with 195k miles on it for $400 usd. Nevermind what I said, this show fucking sucks (kidding lol, but seriously what year is this set in that hasn’t been possible since never)
I'm 40 minutes into the first episode, and damn - yeah, some scenes are hard to watch.
Sometimes I need a show that isn't just feely-good-good.
Have you watched "Shameless"(2011)?
Way funnier/more on the comedy side, but the laugh gets replaced by a lump in one's throat really fast.

I'm halfway through season 6 of Better Call Saul and it's so hard for me to get through it. Not because I don't enjoy it, no, I think it's incredible. It's because I know it ends tragically Nacho's death has already taken a toll on me and I'm not ready for more and it makes me not want to finish the season before things get worse for Jimmy. What an incredible series, I can't remember the last time I was so invested in a show like this. Arcane came close but I didn't care about all characters there unlike with BCS.

I loved BCS but after watching I could never forgive Mike for what I felt was his part in Nacho's death and continuing to work for Gus after that. I felt like if he really wanted he'd have found a way out.
I hated Mike and Gus so fucking much in the end even though most people seem to love them and the Mike family scenes were consistently the most boring part of the show for me. Fuck him for what he did to Werner too. My favourites were always the Salamancas kek and predictably my princess Nachito RIP king

Ayrt I feel exactly the same about Mike and Gus, but especially Mike because Nacho clearly trusted him. I hated how little he seemed to care at the end, he did ensure his father's safety and all but I expected more from him
I did enjoy Mike's storyline though. Just hate that he seemed more devastated by Werner's death and didn't even flinch at Nacho's. They had an established bond and in the end it didn't mean much if anything>>279034>>279074

It's the fans who say things like "Mike and Gus were still so much better than Walter though!" Like it's all about which characters are the least bad. No they weren't better and more importantly their scenes were usually fucking boring compared to Jimmy/Kim and characters like Lalo. I was so mad when Gus killed Lalo you have no idea, almost couldn't believe it had happened.
Tbh I'd rather watch an hour of Walt and Jesse rubbing dicks than an hour of Mike family scenes or one of his silent work montages

I like both manlets and old men kek. Pic very much related. Malcolm in the Middle was also one of my vague childhood crushes and he's only about 5'4" now

I've been watching Malcolm in the Middle's 1st season, and I'm so in love with the series. I don't really know why, since I find it hard to stomach series or movies that focus on scrotes. I don't feel that way with Malcolm tho.
I wonder if it is because the male characters are all kids, except for Francis and Hal. And even then, Hal's character is kind of parodic, and Francis has that "big brother" role that makes him endearing. I heard that the series start to go to shit once the kids grow up (aka, when they become teenagers?), which makes me sad. I already feel sad that Malcolm's teacher won't appear anymore, same with Francis' hot black friend.
Would like to hear what other anons think about the series and if it's true that the series goes to shit in the later seasons.
It's one of my favorites too! I rewatch it every year. Wouldn't say it goes to shit though, yeah maybe some episodes aren't the best and can get too ridiculous but in overall I still could enjoy later seasons. The writing is great, the show didn't age poorly imo, I appreciate it that it can sort of raise certain issues but it's always comedic and light-hearted and is never preachy and patronizing to the viewer. I like that Lois and Hal actually have loving and passionate relationships (as opposed to some tv couples where spouses are passive aggressive to each other and dad's ass is constantly glued to the armchair) and that everyone really cares for each other deep down but it doesn't turn into especially sentimental and cheesy scenes. I also like that Malcolm, despite being "the smartest", is still an overthinking dumbass when it comes to relationships and is not "the most adequate" or something because he's a typical negativistic and conceited teen. Basically, everyone's flawed in their own way but have their unique strengths, too, and although personality traits and quirks are exaggerated for comedic purposes, it's done in a pretty organic and non-annoying way. Guess the time to rewatch has come, hehe

Would you recommend watching succession? Never tried anything like this show.
it's a good show technically but I could take it or leave it. I think people will forget about it.
I think Sarah Snook isn't given good enough lines and scenes for her acting abilities, waste of talent.

>>280521>And while the male characters do have their scrote moments sometimes it’s always projected that they’re the idiots for it which is probably why it’s easier to stomach when it’s self aware.
AYART, and yes, you are right, this is probably the reason I can watch it, lol. I would also add that the male characters don't feel like they are meant to be self-inserts for scrotes.>>280527
I love how passionate you are about MITM anon! I think you described very well the strong points of the series. Hope you have fun rewatching it again!>>280534>kek nonna I misread that as Malcolm and was like STEVIE??
Nona, noooo, that's so cursed, lmaooo. I love Stevie, but he is a lil kid, I was talking about Stanley, picrel.

Physical and Maid are very good shows in my opinion (although they're a little triggering sometimes lol). Any shows in a similar vein as them? Leading woman dealing with an imperfect life as a woman, having serious issues but moving forward. I did not hear about these when they came out so clearly I'm not tapped into the right channels. I also liked Ginny & Georgia even though it's a little more romcom sometimes (did not hear a word about it until season 2 came out!).
i highly recommend it but
it did take me a couple of episodes to get into it at first so you might have the same experience. but then i became utterly obsessed. very well-crafted show imo. great writing, acting, cinematography, and i love the subtle humour.

I rewatch it regularly. It's such a perfect show!
Although It makes me sad that when I watched it as a kid I used to think Lois was a horrible person, even though I found her hilarious as a character, and now I'm older I really sympathise with her and actually she's my hero. I totally get why Greg was so obsessed.
It's my favorite family-focused sitcom ever along with KotH. I don't care what anybody says, I love the later seasons. In fact I think the season(s) when Francis still works at the ranch might be my favorite era of the show. I like their dynamics more when they're older, but even if you disagree with that, later seasons are still funny. There are also other memorable characters that are introduced later that you may like.
Even now that I'm more radfem-aligned I don't mind the boys' scroteyness, because like other nonny
said, they're clearly portrayed as the idiots and as being in the wrong, and they usually end up regretting their behavior for one reason or another, whether because their conscience makes them feel guilty or because they get an appropriate punishment for it. The worst one out of the three main sons is Reese, but always getting his comeuppance as he's usually presented as an antagonist of sorts, sometimes showing a more sensitive side, being dumb, and maturing a bit in later seasons, makes him more tolerable as a character.
I also love how the parents love each other unconditionally (which is also a reason why I love KotH) and how Hal is more in love and devoted to Lois than she is to him, and he is the submissive and passive parent while she is nearly always portrayed as a badass, so that helps a lot to balance things out too. She's the one who imposes order in the family while he is the sensitive one, usually on TV it's the opposite. The boys also love their family despite being so chaotic and cruel to each other, it's kind of heartwarming. Francis is a perverted scrote at first but then matures a lot, and settles, having a loving relationship with his wife, and frankly I find his relationship with his mother absolutely hilarious.
I haven't watched the show but I'm curious, what happened nonny
Samefag but that’s why I’m mad. David’s part was my favorite in game and my SO’s and we both absolutely hated the episode. It was just poor writing at best and problematic
scrote shit ar worst. We also have had like three zombie scenes all show, and they cut all the zombies from this part? Nah we don’t need zombies in a zombie show. We need pedos because those mean game developers told us we weren’t allowed to exploit female trauma, so we’re fixing it.
Try Shameless (same producers as Maid), the oldest daughter is one of the "main" characters (all siblings have a season that revolves more around them) and I enjoyed it very much. There's a fakeboi season but it's toward the end, I mostly skipped that.
I loved "Shining Girls" - it's about a murder victim
that survived the attack.
I still have to watch "The Serpent Queen" (about Catherine de Medici), "Dopesick" (about women amidst the opiod crisis) and "The Chair" (about a woman in academia).
David in the game:
“You have no idea what I’m capable of.” Choking her to death.
David in the show:> “The fighting is the part I like.” Grabs Ellie’s pants.
Ah yes the first one seems much more sexual. Rewatch all the dialogue and the interactions anon since clearly it’s been a minute for you.
> Ellie shoots deer with rifle.
> Two dicks show up (David and Beanie man)
> ellie comes up on guys from behind them makes them drop rifles.
> David attempts to negotiate.
> beanie man goes to get meds
> they sit and wait with deer
(Ellie doesn’t have a bow. She has a gun. She jumps them rather than them approaching her and trying to talk)
> David says he knows Ellie’s friend killed one of theirs
(Rather than trying to approach her gently with manipulation, he’s weird and off putting followed by vaguely threatening in the show.)
> no clicker shows up. Ellie takes off at the news he knows.
(Rather than clicker that David shoots proving the whole time he had a second gun and could have attacked her but chose not to. It’s why she goes with him later. No zombie standoff and fight to get out and then the everything happens for a reason speech)
> they show up looking for Ellie she takes horse and tries to draw them away.
(Rather than gathering attention she fires blindly at them, pissing them off, but not taking the opportunity to actual hit and kill one of them, why have her shoot at all?)
> beanie man knocks her off horse, she’s unconscious. (No run and no fighting. She’s done.)
> cult men want to shoot her. David shows up and shoots in the air and then tells them to drag the horse and search till they find Joel.
(Rather than David catching Ellie and her trying to stab him the first time, in game he tells her, “Relax I’m keeping you alive here.” We get none of that here. He’s weird and off putting but not in that I’m turning on the charm and am actually a shit bag way if that makes sense.)
> ellie wakes up in cage (no arms on table in kitchen. It’s an ear under the table? Can’t have gore just implied attempted sexual violence I guess.)
> ellie doesn’t eat the food. No real talking happens. David kind of rants at her manically that he’s a pyscho who’s always been edgy and she his only equal. He puts his hand on hers and there’s a clear heavy implication here. She breaks his finger cue. Tell them my name is Ellie. The little girl who broke your fucking finger. (Ellie in game eats food. David attempts to convince her it’s survival and neither of them are bad guys. No weird rant about psychos and equals.)
> beanie man and David come to kill Ellie and eat her. She fights back. Bites David reveals infection. Then in their surprise meat clears beanie man in the next.
> Ellie escapes and runs into lodge. No weapons so she grabs a burning log from the fire. Tries to chuck it at David setting the lodge on fire. David rants about how he’s “decide to teach her and she’ll learn” etc. extremely clear what he means
(David doesn’t call group or more men. No line about we’re going to find her and kill her.)
> ellie stabs him in abdomen and then moments later David jumps her and attacks her on ground. (Ellie in game is fighting and fleeing from cult people wondering what the fuck is wrong from them before this part in game for reference. No creepy I’ll teach you dialogue. Just obsession with how she’s not turning.)
> he grabs her pants and tells her the fighting is the part I like the most after he’s been harming her on the ground for a minute. Clearly meaning he wants to assault her.
(In game he instead chokes her, “you don’t know what I’m capable of.)
> ellie hits him with blade
> ellie hits him lots of times with blade, she eventually has to flee building on fire.
(No Joel pulling her away.)
> outside Joel comes up from behind, he’s seen no cult people? (Which would make sense if Ellie killed them, but she didn’t in the show.) Just the three bodies hanging in boat house or whatever it is. He approaches Ellie from behind. She freaks out. He hugs her and says it’s okay babygirl.
(Instead of him coming to save her and pulling her off David’s dead body)
(the scene with Joel is pretty much the same where he tortured the guys, but I think the game they’re tied up and in the show they’re duct taped which I thought was kind of a weird choice.)
(There’s also a derail scene with the cult people where we’re made to see the wife and daughter of the man who Joel killed and we have to watch David slap the girl to drive home his religious daddy cult vibes, but there’s not really a point or conclusion and it goes nowhere. It felt really pointless.)
Can you name male characters and series it happens to? >>281788
It was really weird and felt out of place

The cell scene is very, very similar. The show fucked it up and the game was more subtle but it's still there and it's not just one comment.
Totally agree! I only played the game and I don't think it was done in poor taste there. Just an obvious power dynamic which between men and women is usually sexual in nature. Moreso than to just have sex with her he wants full control over her bodily autonomy. The fact that she's actively fighting against that is what keeps his obsession going. He's not just there to capture Ellie and rape her. He wants to break her spirit and show her who's in charge. His boss fight made my heart race as it purposefully strips away the player's power by making Ellie stealthily sneak around which lets the player feel a lot weaker instead of having it be an action focused fight scene.
With the perfect ending of her stabbing him over and over until Joel comes to tell her she's safe now and they'll get out of here. I especially like how the camera is fully focused on Ellie and what she's feeling instead of David's body getting mutilated. The player should be pretty desensitised to violence at this point anyways and the scene is not about David's demise. It's about Ellie's victory. Just so satisfying to finally watch her triumph over this creepy old dude who thought he could have any power over her.
Also sorry if I'm praising the game too much. I played it when I was 12 and thought it was awesome the game would also let you play as Ellie. A character I could much more relate to than a guy in his late 30s.

Malcolm is one of the sweetest, most adorable and nostalgic 00s shows for me and I openly admit here I'd still kiss Frankie Muniz on his bald head. Haven't watched properly in a few years but I remember loving Reese and Francis too. Frankie deserved to be Joel (shared role with Nikolaj Hotster Waldau) but he also deserved to be Kendall Roy and Jesse TIFman
